“We were given a newborn photo shoot as a gift. From the first contact with Alison we knew we were going to have a great experience and images. Alison has a fantastic studio and great accessories to make the shoot very unique and special. It was a really relaxing day, even with our son only being 9 days old. The same day sneak peek was lovely and we received a follow-up visit from Alison within 2 weeks. The hardest part was choosing which images to buy as they were all so beautiful. We cannot recommend Alison enough and will certainly be telling everyone about her work.”

“Thanks so much, Alison for our amazing photos, we couldn’t be happier with them. You were so patient especially as Jake was being a little Tinker and wouldn’t sleep you made me feel completely at ease and you were great with Jake at keeping him calm and cosy while trying to get your photos. We will definitely be back. Thanks Again. Xxx”

Thank you so much for my recent maternity shoot. You have given me amazing photos of a precious time that I will never get back. I never thought I would have had the confidence to do this as being pregnant is a hard time to feel amazing and I know that other pregnant women feel the same. But you made me feel very welcome and extremely comfortable and the photos (wow) I am in love and now have something to show my child when it gets older and to have forever. I would highly recommend you. Thank you so much again Alison X

We’ve worked with Alison 3 times now and are always so very impressed with her work. Alison is very professional, friendly and puts us at ease, she does a great job with our baby capturing him so beautifully at different ages. Highly recommended!

Ali has taken photos for us on a few occasions now, including maternity and newborn. We love that she has captured such special times for us so beautifully. Ali makes the photo shoots so fun and relaxed and I always love every picture! The framed prints that we have bought have been amazing quality and look brilliant about the house marking those special moments. We will definitely be booking her again in the future.

Issy and Andy

Ali made me feel completely relaxed, comfortable and at ease throughout the shoot. I felt a little shy to begin with, by following Ali’s lead and going with her creative ideas, it was not long before I really got into it and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. If I do say so my self the photos are absolutely beautiful, Ali did an amazing job and managed to capture me in the best possible light.

The second shoot was with my 9 day old newborn daughter Martha and her daddy, these photos are amazing and I struggled to find words to describe how beautiful and precious these pictures are, we could not have even imagined they would turn out so perfect.  We are so grateful and happy at how Ali managed to capture our family.    We all felt so very comfortable thanks to Ali’s personable approach and really enjoyed the day.

On both occasions  found it easy to follow Ali’s gentle instruction, how to stand and pose etc. I cannot recommend Ali’s work highly  enough.  You are guaranteed to have professional yet personal photographs to treasure always.  Ali is an amazingly talented and creative photographer, we look forward to many more shoots in the future. Thank you again and again Ali

Alison has been our family’s photographer since I was pregnant and she photographed our daughter at 10 days, 6 months, and a year old. Our experience with Alison has been phenomenal! She is attentive to meeting the “looks” we wanted to go for and has such an eye for capturing beautiful moments! She is also very knowledgeable of the Suffolk and surrounding areas and always had great suggestions on where to do our shoots. Alison herself is also so personable and easy to spend time with….really puts you at ease and got our daughter to laugh and giggle! She is nothing short of a gem and truly a talented photographer!

Aww ‪Alison I absolutely love them! Thank you so much for making the photo session so much fun for the girls – they thoroughly enjoyed it! You have captured everything that we were hoping for and so much more!

“My daughter was lucky enough to have a fine art shoot with Alison and the results were stunning! Alison is very knowledgeable, professional, artistic and welcoming.
Her studio, props and wardrobe are fabulous as is the farm she is based on which I would imagine would make for a stunning outdoor location shoot! We are over the moon with the images she produced for us and would totally recommend her work.”

I have been photographed by Alison since my son Alfie was 5 weeks old. She has done 3 shoots within his first year, including his naming ceremony, and a further 2 as he’s grown older. I absolutely love the photo shoots with her, as does Alfie. She puts us totally at ease throughout the session and is so much fun to work with! Alison is fantastic with the children and seems to be prepared for every eventuality, and knows exactly the kind of ‘look’ or theme we are after.

Our most recent shoot was a large family shoot at her studio and we all had so much fun doing it. The photos she develops are always stunning and we have such a hard time narrowing them down for selection.

I’m a firm believer that good photography is a fine art, and Alison is no less than a genius when it comes to this talent. Already, I can’t wait for the next photo shoot! I hope she stays in the business for a long time and continues to photograph me and my family for many years to come.

Thank you so much Alison! Xxx

“We have used Alison McKenny photography for a number of occasions now and have always been so pleased with the photos we have received. Alison is so patient, wonderful with children and has the most beautiful setting for photo shoots. We will be back to see her after the birth of our second child!” Holly and Craig Green

My daughter went to Alison for some professional shots for her portfolio and we were delighted with the results. Alison captured Sophie beautifully and was a real pleasure to work with!

Dan and Juliet

Thanks Alison, The pictures are fantastic and the framed ones look even better on the wall. Lucy was over the moon with hers. The whole experience has been great, from the relaxed and enjoyable shoot, through choosing the prints we wanted, to the presentation of the finished result – lucky to have such a beautiful family for you to photograph and glad I chose you for the assignment!

Steve Murphy – Suffolk

Our family shoot took place on a summer’s evening, around Ali’s beautiful family farm.   There are lots of options for great backdrops including leafy lanes, fields and a lake.   The whole shoot went really well and was very easy.  We even took along our 8 year old pet labrador, Molly, who smiled constantly for the camera!

Ali had such a lovely, relaxed manner that we were all at ease immediately.   She’s a consummate professional, mixing authority with chat and laughter.

Even though we had really enjoyed the shoot, myself and my daughter in particular were dreading seeing the resulting photographs as we are never very happy in front of the camera and quite self conscious about posing.   However, even we were utterly delighted with the images.  It was almost impossible to narrow it down to a sensible selection to have framed as they are all absolutely beautiful.  Ali was patience personified, and was very helpful with advice regarding framing.  We now have our finished products all over the house including canvas’s and a framed collage.   As our children are flying the nest and we’re beginning a new chapter, these fabulous images of our gorgeous family are absolutely priceless.

Ali has done a really fabulous job, she has an incredible talent and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any type of photography.

I contacted Alison in January to create some corporate shots for my new business. I wanted images I could use on social media and on my website. Alison and I spoke on the phone and exchanged a few emails regarding the types of shots I was hoping for, and we carried out the shoot on a cold Monday afternoon.
Alison was easy to work, especially when having photos of myself isn’t my favourite pastime.  The end result was a set of highly professional photos that I can use to market my business, and I’ve already had a lot of great feedback from those that have seen them.
