Behind the Lens

Chicago Boudoir Photography

Hello! My name is Aileen. I’m one half of Ed & Aileen Photography in Chicago. And this is my personal project.

I used to feel uncomfortable in my own skin, and there were days where all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with my hair in a bun, wearing a raggedy t-shirt that I’ve had since high school, and hide from the world. Yet, my husband still thought I was beautiful. From having no makeup on to the way my tangled hair fell on my face, he saw past my insecurities. And that realization changed everything for me.

Before our wedding, I decided to embrace my flaws and do a boudoir session as a surprise gift. It was scary, exciting, and incredibly empowering! And I want to be able to give that experience to you. Let’s create something empowering together.
