What others are saying

"Photography for a Greater Good has photographed my family several times now and she has the hardest job in the world! Getting 2 kids under the age of 5 and 2 adults to all look at the camera and smile all at the same time is not easy, but she makes it look like a piece of cake! She also makes it really fun for the whole family and gets the most adorable/genuine photos of my kids. I cherish these photos and am looking forward to our next session in the Fall!"    -- Erin Studer

"During our head shot session, Aleen made me feel comfortable and laugh, and sent me some really great shots! There are many great photographers in the area, but the fact that she donates a portion of her proceeds back really sets her apart! If you need head shots or family portraits, I would definitely check her out!"    -- Mary Neubauer

"We have not had professional photos taken of our family in over 4 years because of a horrible experience when the girls were two. That all changed two weekends ago when my wonderful friend, Aleen, and her amazing business Photography for a Greater Good, photographed us. In short, the photos turned out AMAZING! Aleen has an amazing gift (and eye!) and a very relaxed and casual approach to taking pictures and interacting with her subjects. I would HIGHLY recommend her if you are in the Frederick area and need professional photos taken.  Aleen rocks!!"    -- Angie Lawver

"Two years ago, my husband, who never enjoyed getting pictures taken of our kids, let alone family pictures, finally agreed for Aleen to take our photos because I love decorating our home with family photos. This year will be our third photo shoot with Aleen, and I can tell you now that my husband absolutely enjoys each and every session. Our kids are currently ages 7, 5, 4 and 1. Aleen makes it fun for the kids and parents alike. We love the outdoor photo shoots so our kids can run around in between poses. Aleen is great at making the kids laugh, smile, and feel comfortable during the hour long photo shoot each year. The creativity and quality of each photo is superb. I always have a hard time choosing which ones to print and display because I love them all!"     -- Lauri Palmer

"Aleen was very flexible and cheerful throughout the entire process, from finding the right time to schedule and re-schedule the photo shoot, to getting us to be at ease, and capturing our personalities.  She brings such warmth, joy and skill to the session that I never felt stressed.  I just felt happy to be with her and my family capturing these special years!  Her prices are so fair, the turnaround is quick, and the fact that I was also contributing to a charity made my heart happy.  The experience was fun for Dad, Mom and our girls!   I highly recommend Photography for a Greater Good!"    -- Alysia Feuer
