"Alison is so patient, wonderful with children and has the most beautiful setting for photoshoots."

“We have used Alison McKenny photography for a number of occasions now and have always been so pleased with the photos we have received. We will be back to see her!”

– Holly & Craig

"We are extremely happy with the beautiful photos"

Alison took wonderful photos of our large family group to mark a special anniversary.

Beforehand Alison provided lots of information and guidance on what we should wear to help make the shoot work as well as possible.

She was so calm, friendly, warm and professional throughout the shoot, everyone felt at ease and really enjoyed the morning.

Alison captured everyone really well and did a brilliant job getting the best from all the children. We are extremely happy with the beautiful photos Alison took for us, they will be treasured for years to come.

I would recommend Alison wholeheartedly and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again. Thank you so much!

– Jo

"We would definitely recommend Alison"

We would definitely recommend Alison. Her photographs are gorgeous and she was really amazing with the children (and adults).

Her communication both prior to the shoot, helping with outfit choices, and on the day – in directing and composition of the photographs.

Thanks Alison for such precious memories we will treasure always.

– Gemma and Jonny

"We really enjoyed our family photoshoot"

The final photos are stunning and we really enjoyed our family photoshoot.  Alison was calm and relaxed as she lead us through lots of shot ideas. 

Her experience shined through as she adapted our poses to get the best pictures and made us feel comfortable at all times.  

– Ben and Suzanne

"If you are thinking of having a family shoot, go ahead and do it."

“Alison did a family shoot for my 60th Birthday, 6 adults and 4 children was not an easy task. The photos are amazing, cannot thank you enough Alison.
– Mary




Buy a Gift Voucher that covers the Deposit for a Photoshoot with Alison McKenny Photography and then your loved one can decide what Collection to purchase once they have seen their images.   The £99 will then be deducted from the price of whichever Collection they choose.

If they would prefer to buy a piece of Wall Art instead of a collection after their photoshoot, then the £99 is not deducted from whatever product they buy, and there is a minimum order of £399.

At the end of the photoshoot, we will make an appointment for their viewing and ordering session in the following two weeks which we can do in person or via Zoom.  They don’t need to decide which Collection or Products they would like to buy until this meeting and you have seen your gallery of 20 to 25 images and chosen their favourites.  There is no pressure to buy any images should they decide not to.

Do you give advice on what wear for the shoot?

Most of my clients ask this question and I always say the same thing.  Choose something that you are comfortable in and feel good in first of all.  My preference is when clients choose something in block colours rather than  those with large prints or logos as they distract the eye from your lovely faces.   If you are a real print person, than wear your favourite print and get the rest of the family to wear colours that compliment your print, as that way you still have a cohesive look to your images.  And if you are having an outdoor shoot, I’d recommend avoiding black as it really drains the colour from the image.  I actually wrote a blog post with lots of ideas and inspiration so click here to access that info: What to wear for your photoshoot

Can we bring a pet?

So many of my clients ask if they can bring their family pets along to the shoot as they are very much a part of the family. I love animals especially dogs, cats and horses, and actually did a degree in Equine Studies when I was younger so am very confident in working with and photographing horses. Pets can join in on a Family Lifestyle session and if you like that more natural, unposed look and we can even try for some action shots of your pet chasing a ball or doing tricks if they enjoy that. We can take some individual photos of your pet as well as with family members, as they often have a special bond with certain members of the family.

the grandparents want to join in too, is that ok?

Absolutely!  I love doing extended family photoshoots and especially as families have been separated so much due to COVID, I know a lot of my clients are keen to get photos of their parents with their grandkids, as they missed them so much.  I can only offer extended family shoots for full sessions though.  Mini Sessions are for immediate family only. 

What happens if someone is ill or the weather is bad?

If someone is ill, I am happy to rescedule as it’s hard to look happy in photos if you feel awful! 

I always have a chat on the phone with my clients a couple of days before the shoot and we always have a discussion about the weather.  Using weather apps, it’s possible to get a good idea of what to expect.  If the weather is bad in that it’s rainy or really windy (15mph or more), I’m happy to either change the time of the shoot to later or earlier that day, or to another day altogether.   I will always offer the option of a studio shoot instead, but if outdoor photos were what you really wanted, I’m happy to reschedule.  I’d rather that then having my clients hair blowing across their face in every image.

I just want Digitals! Do I have to buy Prints?

Seasonal Mini Sessions are Digitals only so you could choose that option.  3 Digitals are included or you can buy more for £50 each.   

With full Sessions (1.5 hours or more) there is no pressure to buy anything at all as long as you’ve paid your deposit of £99 which covers the shoot, but if you do want photos,  Digital Files are only available to purchase with a Collection.    The Collections also include a Print Credit which you can spend on Mounted Prints or Wall Art or if you decide not to use your print credit, that is up to you.

Having been in this industry for 11 years now, I know a lot of my previous clients who just bought Digitals have never found the time to do anything with them, which is such a waste.  When investing in a Professional Portrait Shoot, I want my clients to have photos that they can display around their homes and enjoy every single day.

As I use the best suppliers I know my clients will receive top-quality products that will last for years and years, so that future generations can also enjoy their family portraits.
