PERFECTION IN EVERY DETAIL

Client’s Testimonials

Aline is amazing from start to finish. We did a one year cake smash shoot and felt like I found someone who cared as much, if not, more than I did about making sure the photos came out perfectly.

I sent some inspiration photos, and she worked closely with me on the theme, making suggestions for colors, outfits and the cake and sourcing props for the unique theme, etc. When it came to the shoot itself, she was super prepared and efficient. Her sets are amazing, but more importantly, she knows how to work with the baby while shooting. She worked tirelessly to make sure my daughter (who wasn’t in the best mood to start with), moved around in different positions, smiled, laughed for the camera etc. We all had a great time and were exhausted by the end.

The photos turned out beautifully. Aline also designed a gorgeous album and advised me on the best sized prints to purchase for our bathroom wall.

Celebrating my daughter’s birthday and my first year of motherhood was super important to me and I felt like Aline was the ideal person to work with. She’s professional, responsive, kind and really wants to get it right. Her services aren’t cheap, but it was totally worth it.

Where do I start! Aline is nothing short of amazing… The awards she has won are truly deserving. Aline did my maternity as well 1 year cake smash pictures for my second child. I only wish I discovered her sooner… She was amazing to work with. When my maternity pictures were scheduled, she made sure to keep me updated on the schedule and place (we were in the middle of the CA fires and the air was thick with smoke). She was very friendly from the get go and worked like a wiz! We started off with shots in her studio but as soon as she saw that the air was clearing up with the recent rains, we went to a nearby park for some amazing outdoor pics! I got the best of both worlds there. She worked very closely with me for the one year cake smash pictures to decide the theme, the kind of cake, the dresses, the different kind of shots etc. Due to circumstances, I had to change the date of my scheduled photo shoot and she was very understanding and accommodated us earlier than the decided date….  And of course, the pictures will speak for themselves on the quality of work she delivers. Just amazing!

Aline is amazing and I cannot recommend her enough. She is a pleasure to work with, her artistic vision is beautiful and she creates her own sets and they in themselves are works of art if you do a studio session.
Aline has photographed my three girls since my oldest were 2 and my youngest since she’s been born. Anyone can point and shoot a camera, Aline goes above and beyond. She keeps your newborn SAFE! She thinks about the babies positioning and support-not to get the best shot but to make sure your newborn is comfy. She is kind and loving and has a way with children that is magical!
I recommend Aline Designs Photography 1000 times over! Sign up for a milestone or the mini sessions! We just did Christmas mini shoots and they are perfect!!!
Thanks Aline for all you do!

Aline is a very professional photographer. She was very careful and patient with my baby during the newborn session! I really liked her job. The pictures were amazing!!!
I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in having newborn pictures taken.

Beatriz C.

Wow, who knew that so much could happen in a 20-minute photoshoot? Aline was able to maximize her time with Bilal despite his stranger anxiety. She moved him swiftly through three beautiful Easter sets during the mini session. Beautiful studio, and clean. I’ve never met anyone as particular about cleanliness as I am!
She is also super responsive via yelp!
Overall great service and super efficient, which is crucial given her clientele – babies!

Sadiya A.

Aline was so awesome! She messaged back and forth with me many times to answer all my questions and concerns before I finally booked my session. When I showed up for my boudoir shoot I was pretty nervous. I don’t know “my good side”, how to pose, or what looks good. There was no way I could pull off all the glamorous shots I’ve seen before, especially at 8.5 months pregnant. But from the very first second I felt so comfortable and confident. She made it so easy to follow directions and just relax and enjoy the moment. I am so thankful I decided to book with her and have these amazing pictures that capture the beauty of pregnancy forever. She made me look and feel like a real model. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to feel beautiful and empowered.

Lindy S.

I first heard about Aline through a co-worker of mine and she had told me that she did amazing work. When I contacted Aline for my maternity shoot, she was nothing short of professional and very very polite. When we had our maternity shoot, she was even better in person and her photography skills were phenomenal! She made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable during the shoot.. not like robots that had to pose awkwardly. We actually had a lot of fun during the shoot and when we got the photos back we were amazed by how they looked! They captured the love between us and the love we were going to show our (then) unborn son. Fast forward to when our son was born and she did his newborn pictures… she is amazing with newborns! I felt comfortable with Aline holding my newborn son and she also let this new mom get some zzz’s. When we got the pictures back.. we were in awe of how perfect our little boy looked. She captured his perfect moments! If you want a very skilled photographer and a person who genuinely loves to capture the great moments in life, Aline is one in a million!

This is a very long overdue review. I was lucky enough to find Aline in a FB mommy group in 2015.  She was offering mini Valentine’s Session.  I was about 30 weeks at the time and she made my Valentine’s session almost a maternity session.  The pictures turned out great!  Everyone loved the photos when I had them printed for the baby shower.  She made this experience great & got my trust.  I was bummed that I had already booked another photographer for newborn sessions.

But for my son’s 6 month session, I made sure I had her do his photos with his 2 older sisters.  She was patient and took the time to capture my son.  She even left his birthmark on his face (which I loved, because it made him special/unique).  My newborn photographer for some reason photoshopped it out when asked to keep it there.  She even let me do some halloween backdrop since she also had the backdrop for it.  The photos of my 3 kids were perfect!  I love them sooo very much!

Of course I made sure to book my son’s 1 yr photos with her.  Amazing photos as well.

I then had photos done for Valentine’s day this year for the kids.  Props were great and the kids love getting their photos done by Aline!

This year I also booked my daughter’s 10 year old photos with Aline.  Another bunch of photos I just adore.

Aline captured my children’s personalities in the photos.  She is professional and just great to work with.  I cannot wait for the next session with her!

Linda L.

Aline was AMAZING to work with and I am not an easy one – hahaha!
She totally blew me away with her photos, and her communication is super fast!  Everything she does is very professional – she sends invoices, contracts, etc.  She designed personalized sets just for my little guy to match his birthday party theme for his cake smash photo session.  I loved that she did multiple backgrounds and including a couple family shots (with my husband and I) also.  She is super talented!  Two of my friends also used her for their cake smash sessions and they too were in love with her work.

Meghan B.

I booked Aline for both my maternity and newborn photos, and now that both are completed and I have all my photos I am comfortable leaving a 5 star review. She is an amazing artist and a wonderful person! She was prompt from the start, being one of the first photographers to return my inquiries and answering my questions and was professional at all times. She took extra time at my maternity shoot to capture as many poses as possible, and put my family but most importantly our newborn during the newborn shoot. I highly recommend Aline for any of your photography needs and look forward to working with her again for my daughters smash cake/first birthday.

Diem T.

Aline is an amazing photographer who is so attentive to detail, that the average photographer could not compare. We have used several photographers through the years, and she is by far the best when it comes to personality, comfort, and of course, quality and amazing photos. She is so patient during the photo session, and notices the smallest details to ensure that you end up with the best photos. I am always so excited to go in for the viewing of the photos, because I know I will end up with amazing photos that hold memories that can never be replaced. I highly recommend Aline!!!

Jenny Ly.

We booked new born session with Aline after seeing my cousin’s maternity pics. Aline is just awesome with the kids. She put my baby to sleep in seconds whenever she woke up during the session. It’s absolutely amazing to see how she does that. Very patient , did not hurry to finish the job and took her time. All the pics she took were so beautiful that it was very hard to choose. We have already booked 6th month mile stone and one year cake smash session with her. Aline is very responsive ( responds within 24hours to email or message), thorough , organized and very easy to work with. Thanks Aline for creating wonderful memories for us!

Radha A.

Aline was so professional and organized. She did an amazing job for my daughters cake smash. She also helped me choose outfits and gave so many amazing suggestions. She is very patient and loving with lil ones. Coming to the pictures they are Awsome!..I highly recommend her. Thanks for everything Aline

Padma H.

We had our newborn photo session two weeks ago. She was great with my daughter on making sure she was comfortable and warm. She knew the perfect outfits and great poses that were natural for her.

Jeana P.

She is dedicated, thorough, patient and artistic !! All that you can ask from a photographer. I have known her for 6 years now and would highly recommend her. My daughter’s Cake Smash was a dream. When I got pregnant with my son she registered my maternity, his newborn session and also his cake smash. Her work is worth every penny.

Cherisha K.

This is long overdue… Aline is so awesome in every way… she is very creative, well organized, patient and sweet… she answered all my questions and she was so patient with both of my kids. We did family pictures and cake smash and newborn pictures and they all look so amazing and beautiful. Aline went above and beyond in every possible way that anyone could ever do. I’m so glad I found her … I have recommended her to all my friends and family.
Thank you so much Aline for being so awesome your the best.

Mandana K.

We absolutely loved working with Aline, and highly recommend her!!! We signed up for the “Belly-to-baby” package, and could not be happier with the process and the results.

She chose the perfect location for our maternity shoot, and the photos turned out amazing. She provided guidance every step of the way (from what dress looked better – and boy was she right! – to poses, to entertaining our toddler who did not want to behave), was extremely kind and generous (we went well above the allocated time, and she did not once make us feel rushed), and super super talented. When the pictures arrived for my review, I had the hardest time not ordering them all. They were that good!

Our newborn session was a dream, too. Aline was so welcoming and patient. You can truly tell she loves what she does. She loves working with babies and kids. Her studio is so awesome; it is chock full of props and everything you could ever need when you bring a newborn and a toddler along (snacks, changing table, heater, A/C, and lots of love in every single detail).

Every single shot was well thought out: she listened to our “wants” as well as gave suggestions (which I appreciated so much because I am so clueless when it comes to taking pictures and what looks best, etc). The four of us were there for over 3 hours, and not once did we feel rushed. It was by far the best photo experience I have ever had.

Again, I cannot recommend her enough. Professionalism, attention to detail, kindness and 100% sheer talent! Thanks, Aline!

Isabela F. C.

Love her work. Aline is very flexible with schedule, patience, easy to work with. My daughter usually won’t smile at stranger, but within second, Aline is able to make ber smile, so the pictures came out very nice. Aline captures every moment of us. With my newborn session, she really spent her time to put my son asleep and was willinf to try every pose /outfit to make sure the session come out good with no regret. Highly recommend.

Candy N.

Aline is amazing! We just had my daughter’s 1 year cake smash session yesterday and all the sets were adorable!! Aline is great with kids and works to make sure everything is perfect. I can’t wait to see our photos! Aline will be our family photographer for all future photos needs.

Stacy S.

Aline was so quick with responses to my questions and scheduling. We were late because we forgot the smash cake, but Aline didn’t make a big fuss about it and was really accommodating! I loved all the photos and bought way more than what came in the package. Definitely recommended her to a few people already.

Queenie D.

Our daughter’s cake smash photo session was wonderful. Aline was super nice, attentive and very patient with out daughter. We were a little bit worried before the photo session because out daughter didn’t like touching the cake or having bubble bath and she was sleepy right before taking the photos. But Aline was very professional and experienced, the photos turned out very cute and beautiful. Thank you so much Aline! We’ll definitely come back if we have a second child!

Fanny T.

I have had an amazing experience working with Aline. We did a maternity session and a newborn session recently and both times it was so much fun. She was very gentle with my newborn and has the cutest wraps and props. I told her I like minimum props and more pictures with just the baby and us and she did just that. She was very patient with my toddler who wanted to run around the park.
I love how quick she is to respond to text and email. She makes you feel comfortable and takes a lot of time, never making you feel rushed. She is very professional and talented. The pictures turned out great! I would highly recommend her for capturing your family’s beautiful moments.

Michelle H.

We were nervous about trying to get our twins to sit still for a picture much less book a photo session – so glad we went to Aline! She’s super organized up front so we knew exactly what to bring and what to expect through our cake smash session. Aline was able to capture really adorable first birthday and cake smash pictures that we can’t wait to share with our family and friends. ❤️ The whole process was very well planned and thought out and she has such patience during the photo shoot. Thank you Aline!!

Chaya B.

Aline is such an amazing photographer! We did a maternity session with her, and we’re completely in love with the result. We looked around at other photographers, but Aline’s photos were out. So, we chose her, and it was the best decision. She did a perfect job! We are extremely happy and can’t wait for the newborn section. Thank you, Aline, for help us document this precious moment in our lives.

Leide V.

Aline is not only a talented photographer, but great to work with. We had to reschedule and stress due to rain outs of our photography session. She was diligent and dedicated to helping us work out a date where we could still meet our deadlines for the pictures. She was great with the 4 of us, but even better with our dog! Our photos are stunning and I am so happy we chose Aline.

Lisa R.

Aline is very professional and easy to work with. The process of our mini session with her was smooth. I especially like how she’s honest with my poses, hair and accesorie choices. Most importatnly, she accommodated all my requests and her turnaround time was relatively quick considered it was in the fall season, the busiest time for photograhers. The only thing I would have hoped for is more of my daughter’s pic by herself, but overall, we are very happy with the end result. Will definately recommand her to all my friends.

 

Misty T.

We are so happy with the experiences we have had working with Aline. She has done maternity and family photos for us and we have been happy with both experiences. She is very organized and professional, takes incredible photos, gets the proofs back quickly and is just a lovely person with whom to work. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Rebecca W.

We’ve now had two opportunities to work with Aline and each time has just been nothing short of amazing! She just gets children and how they operate. We have a one year old daughter and with that being said, during the shoot – she stayed calm and upbeat despite a crazy one year old. While I don’t know how she did it, she got the BEST shots for my daughter both times! As I watched, I thought to myself ‘Oh we got zip photos..’ even though she told me we got good ones. Sure enough – after I saw the proofs, she was absolutely right! Working with her from booking appointment, making payment, the session, photo selection, everything is a smooth process. Can’t wait to book future sessions with her!!

Kathy L.

AMAZING!!! Definitely, echo what the other reviewers have said…we are very happy with the photos of our newborn. Our friends used Aline for newborn and family pics and i was always in awe of her work. So when our son was born, we knew we had to get some newborn pictures taken right away.

Aline is such an amazing photographer! She has a beautiful studio and uses the sweetest, most lovely baby clothing/props. Not to mention she is loving, gentle and patient with the babies. She takes her time to ensure she captures amazing images of your little one. When my newborn got fuzzy, Aline would sooth him and allowed him to relax until he was calm.

Aline is not only extremely talented at what she does but she is such a sweet person and so easy to work with! You will leave the session feeling like you just spent time with a friend and you will be blown away when you receive your images! She captured my son’s first days in such a beautiful and special way. Those photos will be treasured for a lifetime.

Ana K. C.

Aline photographed my daughter’s cake smash and portraits and we couldn’t be more pleased at the results! She is warmly professional and we loved her creativity! Because I had an outdoor theme in mind, Aline met us at a local park and we greatly appreciated the variety of props and ideas she brought to the session while still leaving plenty of room for spontaneity. She knew just how to engage my daughter and as a result, Aline captured my daughter’s spirit and fun moments shared. Thank you Aline! You made this an incredible experience!

 

Michaela H. S.

Aline is simply a great, careful and professional photographer!
We’ve done two mini sessions for my 20 months old baby boy and I’m very surprised with the results! It’s just so adorable!!
I intend to do a lot more, including a family book, and one special for me! I absolutely recommend her for any parents who wants to have a lovely memory of their new born or a great photo session to register the best moments of their children!!

Mia F.

Aline is brilliant with babies AND teenagers!! Looking forward to having her take my son’s Senior photos instead of going to the chain studio in the mall. She captured my daughter last year and brought out all of her best qualities which can sometimes be hidden to parents. Aline’s ease and patience brings out everyone’s natural joy. We adore her!

 

Amy B.

I am usually not into writing reviews, but this I must write! Aline is simply Amazing. I have done two mini sessions of my little boy with her and it’s been a great experience both times. She managed to capture the best moments. It’s had been hard to choose the favorites as they all were excellent. Not to mention, she has always delivered the pictures much sooner than initially promised (in a matter of couple of days). She is highly professional, patient and approachable. Her passion and dedication is clearly revealed on her photographs. I highly recommend her for getting pictures of your babies, kids and families.

Ramya S.

I had my maternity and newborn photos done and LOVED my experience as well as the outcome of the photos. Aline is so kind and patient. She took her time and didnt rush the sessions even though we went well over the time frame. I will use her for all my milestone photos for my family.

Brianna D. M.

Aline’s work is absolutely outstanding. I booked a session after seeing my friend’s photos at her house. So when came the time for my maternity, I knew where to go and who would handle my little one. My maternity photos turned out absolutely stunning and exactly what I wanted. I also rented a dress from Aline Designs. Everything from her booking process to the delivery of the prints is 100% professional, easy and clear. She was also a genius keeping my toddler boy entertained and cooperating during the maternity and newborn session – I really don’t know how she can manage that, but she DOES. The newborn session was calm and the best experience ever – both my husband and I even slept during the session. Her studio is pure love and you can see how gentle, loving and magical she is as she touches your baby (she managed to feed, burp and change a nasty poop diaper without getting my baby to cry – that’s magic!). I also ordered a few large prints from her from both of my sessions and Aline helped us create the perfect combination for our home. The print quality is stellar and definitely worth every penny as the colors and framing really stand-out from everything I have seen. In sum, I highly recommend Aline’s work. She is true professional and knows what she is doing.
