Happy customers speak for themselves...

Aileen Smith's photography is absolutely terrific.  The photo experience is fun--natural, professional, relaxed, and the photos reflect the same--capturing the natural ease of the photo shoot itself.  The photos themselves are beautiful keepsakes--clean, crisp images, great color, and always capturing a natural, spontaneous glow.  Aileen Smith makes the folks at Yuen Lui seem like amateurs.  Ann S.

I have had Aileen take photos of my grandson on two different occasions, and she does outstanding, professional shoots every time.  She take numerous photos, and has a special way with children, getting them to "forget" themselves for more natural poses.   Maridee G.

I have had Aileen doing portraits for my family since my children were little and now am having my grandchildren photographed there as well.   Aileen is patient with squirmy, unwilling kids (and adults!) and finds a way to get even the most uncooperative to take beautiful pictures.  She has an uncanny knack for capturing unique and endearing expressions that make for one-of-a-kind photographs. I wouldn't go anywhere else!    Diane L.

Aileen Smith is a talented and artful photographer. She has done several photography sessions at our school for our marketing program. Aileen’s energy and creativity are just a few of the attributes she brings to her craft. She is able to bring out the best in her subjects and has innovative ideas and a wonderful eye for composition. I look forward to working with her again and again.    Karen Kranz, Kennedy High School

I have had photos done by Aileen several times, and each time I was blown away by the results.  She has a way of catching just the perfect moments to reflect who you truly are.   I personally enjoy outdoor photos, and she's always very accommodating with that as well.  If I could rate her more than 5 stars, I would.  Melissa B.

Aileen is Amazing! What she captures with a camera is stunning.  Her work speaks for itself.  You will not have a better experience anywhere else!  Renee M.

I have only had excellent experiences with Aileen!  Every time we had pictures done, I have more amazing shots than I know what to do with.  We never felt rushed, and you could never guess from the pictures how grumpy my baby was being because the final results were full of smiles.  I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for pictures of any kind!  Shelby F.

Aileen is a true professional.  We have trusted her to take our children's first photos as babies.  She takes so many photos that you are guaranteed to have many "winners."  We are always thrilled with the results.  Aileen's patience especially pays off when working little ones.  She even worked around our children's feedings and nap schedules.  As a mom herself, Aileen understands the importance of capturing your child's own personality to ensure lasting memories.  I would HIGHLY recommend Aileen to anyone.  Janelle N.

I was so happy with the proofs and amazed at all the great photos that she captured.  Aileen was also great at finding creative ways to get my daughter's attention.  I highly recommend her work.  Colleen S.

Aileen helped me with professional shots for work. She really made me relaxed and comfortable taking pictures that I really didn’t want to take! The end result was a very powerful and professional image. I appreciated the effort she went to and her approach on getting the image right. Thanks!    Rita A.

"Aileen Smith did an excellent job taking photos of our key executives and staff members. She was fast, well organized, highly professional, and best of all -- the photos turned out amazing. I would be happy to recommend her services to anyone looking for top notch photography services."  Esmee W.



Looking at the collection of my favorite family photos on my buffet recently, I realized that every one of them was taken by Aileen.  If you want photos of your favorite people that capture the relaxed, true image, Aileen is your photographer.  Marilyn L.

Aileen is nothing short of amazing! We have been taking picture with her for almost 6 years. She is so patient with kids and always gets the shot. Early on in our sessions with Aileen, I used to worry we didn't get a decent shot because the kids were not cooperating. But then the proofs come out, and Aileen has gotten not one, but several great pictures to pick from. My kids look forward to their visits with Aileen. Thank you for capturing such wonderful memories of our family.  Julie K.

Aileen has worked with me on several occasions, and most recently with pictures of my newborn son. I was impressed with how patient she was, especially as the subject was being a bit difficult. Her calm and gentle approach allowed her to get some beautiful shots. She has a great eye for poses, composition, and lighting, and the results were fantastic! After the photoshoot she did a great job organizing everything, touching up and treating photos, and reviewing the shots with us. The result is beautiful memories to last a lifetime.   Brendan O.

Aileen was absolutely wonderful to work with. I wanted to update my professional pictures to something that felt “casual, corporate, and young professional”, but had a very hard time articulating exactly what I wanted. She listened to everything I said and found creative ways to figure out exactly what I was going for. She was the perfect balance of providing professional guidance and being open to my own ideas. Throughout the entire photoshoot, she checked in with me to see how I felt about the shots we were getting, and always made adjustments accordingly. I left the shoot feeling ecstatic, knowing that we got many awesome shots to choose from. Before I knew it, she sent me a link to my retouched pictures. They were exactly what was hoping for, professional but fun and casual at the same time, and her retouching is so natural and elegant. I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Aileen.   Kayleen H.

Thank you so much for taking photos for our anniversary and marketing materials this fall. You are able to get candid shots of the students that really capture our school and their spirit. I am amazed how you are able to quickly pull together the kids, select a great backdrop and then create beautiful images. I appreciate the formal shots you get for our events, like graduation and 1st communion, but especially appreciate your magic in capturing kids just being kids and making them beautiful. It is a pleasure to work with you.    Stacy Pretti, Director of Development, Saint Matthew School.

Words can not describe how wonderful Aileen is, she is very professional and great to work with, she has a wonderful personality and her work speaks for itself. She took our family to the Arboretum to photograph us in our element. My son was very relaxed being outside. Aileen brought out his smile, which isn't easy. She captured precious moments of our family playing in the forest and to this day, these are my favorite pictures of my son. She even got a picture of my husband helping my son tie his shoe, a memory I will cherish forever. We can't thank her enough for helping us capture so many fond memories. I would highly recommend her... Aileen loves her job and the love comes through in the photos.   Denise L.
