Studio Portraits

I’m Alison McKenny and I am a Professional Portrait Photographer specialising in Women’s Beauty Shoots, Fine Art Children’s Portraiture, Personal Branding, and Corporate Headshots. I have a lovely studio at my home in Stoke By Clare, Suffolk which is also close to the borders of Essex and Cambridgeshire.

There are many options available when booking Alison McKenny Photography for your Portrait session, and the choice is yours depending on your personal preferences. To start, I would recommend viewing the galleries above to get a feel for the different styles on offer, and then contact me to have a chat about what you would like to get from your session.

Beauty Shoots:   Every woman loves to feel beautiful for her partner and herself.  A woman’s beauty is unique and should be celebrated.  Our studio-based photography sessions which can include full hair and make up and up to 3 outfit changes, bring out the ‘model’ in you and are dedicated to exposing a woman’s true beauty at every age.  Bring your Mum, Sisters or Best Friends, or come on your own if you prefer for a once in a lifetime experience.  To get a better idea of what to expect from these sessions, please click here to see my Beauty Shoot Brochure and watch the video from a recent session below!

Fine Art Children’s Portraiture is my most recently developed style.  Having trained with world-renowned photographers Sue Bryce and Elena Shumilova and more recently with (SWPP Children’s Photographer of the year) Paulina Duczman, I have been inspired to capture children in a more elegant, yet timeless way.   These images are not the usual smiley portraits of your children that you see in lifestyle or standard studio sessions but are beautifully lit with soft light and dark shadows to create more moody and striking portraits. They will not date with time and are heirloom pieces that will be passed down from generation to generation.  These images have soft tones and emotive expressions that make you wonder what your child is thinking about at that moment.  I love doing these shoots as they allow me to be creative and it takes the pressure off the child to ‘smile for the camera’ all the time.  These sessions are usually focused on the children but I’m also happy to include parents too for some family portraits at the end of the session.

Corporate Headshot Sessions are now available due to the rising demand of professional personal branding portraits.  People are starting to realise that their clients want to know who they are dealing with and poor iPhone photos from last years Christmas party just don’t cut the mustard anymore.   Businesses that are offering professional services or selling premium products are making themselves and their companies more approachable and attractive to potential clients by having professional portraits taken!  It really doesn’t matter what your business is, if you have an online presence, you need a photograph of you on there.

We can do these sessions either on location or in our studio which is based in Stoke By Clare, Suffolk.   I would recommend having a chat with me before the session so I can find out more about your business and it’s unique Brand Identity so we can decide the best approach for your headshot session.    Every session is unique and can be tailored to suit you.

Mini Headshot Sessions are also available in my studio and are well suited to those who only need a couple of digital images but want that professional finish to their images.
