Testimonials/Reviews from our clients 来自我们客户的推荐及引言


Dear Xiaoling, the email arrived and I'm sitting here in bed with tissues to wipe the tears after seeing your pictures. I can't thank you enough for capturing those moments and taking the time to come by our place. I can't believe N used to be so small!!  Your pictures are really really amazing and I feel blessed for you being our photographer for the newborn shoot…     - Marisa


We used Not an Illusion for our maternity photos and again for our son's newborn photos. Xiaoling is great we are very happy with both sessions. Packages are reasonable and she gives a discount for weekdays.Highly recommended!




We recently had family photos, which included newborn photos, taken by Not An Illusion Photography. My husband and I were so impressed by their services, that I felt it was important to let others know about their work. Our photographer, Xiaoling, took beautiful, natural photos and was very patient while taking the photos. We had postcards and photo books printed that were delivered very quickly so that we could give them out at Christmas to our families. We were very happy with the quality of the products. 




We had family photos taken at a park. Xiaoling did such a wonderful job, caught all these natural photos of my 2.5 years old daughter. Everyone in our family love our album. We were visiting BJ from Long Island and had to do this shot in a short notice, XiaoLing was so accommodating. Thank you.
