    Aislinn is an amazingly talented photographer. I've hired her for three shoots with my small, now toddler son, as well as a family mini shoot. The way she naturally captured the personality of my son not only provided awesome pictures, but a full-on memory made of photos from the first picture to the last. And my family...well let's just say she was up for the challenge in dealing with folks that didn't like to look in the camera...or smile for that matter. :) Nailed it. She's extremely professional, flexible and creative. She is organized and well-prepared for any situation. I would highly, highly recommend hiring her for any event, as well as personal, family photography. She won't disappoint, I promise!

    Aislinn is an amazing photographer and her photos are absolutely gorgeous! We had so much fun working with her and I could not be any happier. She made me and my fiance feel comfortable so we could be ourselves and act natural in front of the camera. Aislinn was a delight, very well organized, highly experienced, and skillfully directed us through the entire photo shoot.

    I highly recommend Aislinn!

    My fiancee and I wanted engagement shots in central park. It was the middle of winter and we wanted a snowy, white winter feel for our pictures. Aislinn was so amazing to work with, and braved the winter cold and bitter winds for us!! She made us laugh, made sure we were always comfortable and listened to our ideas. We still will often think about how much fun we had on that shoot. Our pictures were ready within a week and exceeded every single expectation we had. Besides being so so good at what she does, she was a joy to work with!! We HIGHLY recommend her! For everything! We can't wait to work with her again for family pictures!

    Glad you guys had so much fun!! I had a blast too. Nothing like a winter photo shoot!! :)

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Working with couples for engagement or wedding sessions, kids for parties or events, newborns and pets and theater headshots for actors of all ages.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Ask a lot of questions. No question is dumb or unimportant. I love an educated client who knows what they're getting because they asked the questions that were important to them.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I know weddings seem expensive. I put in up to 20 hours of planning and consulting with each couple BEFORE their wedding. And then, at the end of a long 10 hour wedding day, I am BEAT. I have given 110%. After the event, I spend several weeks post-processing your photos. I feel so much pressure to deliver stunning images of each couples wedding day, so I take my time and do it right.

The cost seems high, but it was arrived at based on calculations of my CODB (cost of doing business). This is my livelihood, and I need to pay myself so I too can build a business, home, family and savings. 9 times out of 10, a photographer is not trying to rip you off with their prices. They are just trying to run a business effectively.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Know what you want. Know the final result as you imagine it in your mind. Then tell me that. If you don't let me know what you want, and I miss the mark, it will be terrible for you. Know what you want then tell me!

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I don't have a lot of formal training - I know what looks good by instinct. I also did not formally study "the rules" of photography, so I feel fine breaking them and doing what feels right to get the perfect shot. I've spent years outside in the world shooting - that feels like the best classroom to me.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The clients. They're amazing and stunning and wonderful. I love meeting new people and capturing that special light inside of them through my camera. I love the human condition, and I love seeing what makes people tick.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Most common question is why I shoot outside and not in a studio. The answer is that I love the flexibility and the naturalness of shooting outdoors. The weather dictates the background for the shoot and I work with the client and the sun to literally get the best shot. Natural light is the most flattering form of light, and I hate the fake look that a lot of studio photographs have.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I'm currently working on obtaining my A.A.S in Commercial Photography. Also considering taking a few photojournalism courses to formalize my experience a bit.
