Aileen's passion is nature, so her work is usually shot on location rather than in a studio. She is a self-taught photographer working in and around Fond du Lac.

In high school she won many awards in state, national and international competitions. In May of 2014 she ended a 15-year-long career as a photo journalist with the Action/Reporter Media. Throughout her career she has covered weddings, events, senior portraits and more and continues to do this work today.
