The problem is on your Aunts end.
Fixing the problem depends on what is marking you as Spam (Web mail, ISP, E-mail client, or third party anti-spam software).
It could be as simple as having her put you on her whitelist.

Throoper has stated the obvious things. You need to find out what your aunt uses. If it's an Hotmail setup, she needs to put your email address in her favorites which is like a white list. If GMail/Yahoo or similar, she should should just have to check the box next to your email and click the "Not Spam" button. May not be worded the same in all email clients, but you should be able to get across what she needs to do. Some email clients, you just right-click on the 'From" email address and select "Set as Approved Sender".
