It’s so special to be able to capture memorable moments with you and your kids. I don’t know about you, but our pictures are often missing either me or my husband! That’s definitely one of the many reasons to hire a family photographer. Not to mention they are incredibly talented with a camera, lighting, and editing, which makes a big difference.
All of the photographers in this guide come recommended and serve the suburbs of Chicago, then chose to be featured. You will find a description of each family photographer, contact information, and samples of their work to help you find the perfect fit. So take a look at all of them and book soon because their sessions fill up!
Recommended Family Photographers
Capturing your family, as they are, in this moment, for you to forever remember.
I hope you’ll see and feel how much I LOVE what I do! Being able to work with so many wonderful families is such an amazing honor that I hope to have with you. Whether it’s a magical outdoor session, a posed newborn shoot, or a family lifestyle shoot in your home, I am ready to combine my artistic vision and your family love to come up with a truly amazing and personalized session.
Julianne Green is a coaxer of smiles and laughs, a lover of personal interactions and proud of every laugh, kiss and tear that has gone into her galleries. Julianne’s sessions center on your family’s love, humor and tenderness. People often ask why she shoots couples/weddings, newborns and families vs. one focus area and the answer is simple… Her hope is that your client-photographer relationship will span many chapters of your life. Julianne takes those moments, not just the pictures, but the emotions and the experience. She encapsulates it for you in a photograph – a tangible, cohesive collection of your story – that can be shared and experienced time and time again.
Let’s have some fun! Happiness is the number one priority to me (especially being a mom to four little ones!), and I bring that energy to each and every session. Upbeat and silly, capturing the natural smiles, connections and love between families and children is always the goal no matter what age you are!
Whether your session is a newborn, child or family, laughing, telling jokes, smiling or a little shyness is involved, Esther likes to engage with children right away, warming them up for the camera while at the same time putting mom and dad at ease. Giving hugs, tickles, kisses and laughs throughout your session helps to make everyone relaxed and comfortable. Enjoy your time in front of the camera without realizing it’s there! She loves being able to capture the moments, little personalities and connections of your beautiful family. Esther will give you memories through photographs you can revisit over and over again.
Abigail is an award winning Chicago photographer specialising in maternity, newborn, and family photography. She provides on-location family and maternity sessions, and offers both in-home and studio based newborn photography in downtown Chicago and the western suburbs.
Pamela from Kissed by the Sun Photography believes a photograph stops a second in time. It helps us remember how we felt and the beauty we experienced at that moment in life. Her passion is creating and preserving those precious memories for her clients to cherish for a lifetime.
