Location Portraits

For your location portrait session you are free to choose any location that’s special to you. A location portrait uses natural daylight and can be in your favourite surroundings such as a local park or beach, where you can relax and have fun. This will result in more informal photographs giving a more natural look to your portraits, and is great for toddlers who like to run around and is also ideal for large family groups. I can concentrate on both family groups and individuals, so you’ll have a good range of photographs to choose from. If the weather takes a turn for the worse then we could reschedule your location session for a different day, as I’ll always have a second date booked with you. Don’t worry if it’s cloudy as it’s great weather for portrait photography. Please see my Photography Information page for answers to the most frequently asked questions about the photoshoot.

Mobile Studio Portraits

For your studio portrait session I bring the studio to you. I use a professional mobile photography studio with a state of the art high-key white background to give a modern clean fresh look to your portraits, this is great for smaller families or babies as they feel at ease in their own environment. For a mobile studio portrait session I require a clear space of 3m x 4.5m (10 foot x 15 foot) to set up my mobile studio. I can set this up in your home quite quickly, using professional studio lights along with a high-key white background and white floor. I also allow enough time for a change of clothing and snacks and feeds for younger children, whenever you feel necessary. Your studio portrait session will be the only one I do on the day, unlike many high street studios who have clients coming in on a conveyor belt system. It means that your photoshoot will be planned exactly as you want it and will be fun and relaxed. Please see my Photography Information page for answers to the most frequently asked questions about the photoshoot.

From start to finish Alison was a consummate professional. Alison returned my call within 5 minutes after leaving her a message. She is very welcoming on the phone, I felt like I’d know her for ages. Paperwork and contracts were sent quickly with no hidden costs or last minutes surprises. The kit is very professional as was the shoot but Alison manages to keep this informal and fun. As a freelancer I needed new business photos quite quickly, from my initial phone call to receiving my photos was 5 days, fantastic. The photos have already paid for themselves, after uploading them with an agency I had secured a new contract that day. Very happy. I would recommend Alison to anyone who wants a photo shoot with a professional experienced photographer with a talent for making you feel at home. 5 stars.

Having found a publisher for my third crime/mystery novel set in Liverpool, I needed a professional author headshot. Alison showed great patience and professionalism and I am delighted with the end result.

Alison took some wonderful shots of our nieces for us. The photos are beautiful, she handled two teenagers in a friendly and professional way to get the most natural photos possible. We can't recommend Alison highly enough.

The Dennigan Family, Liverpool

Alison came to our home at short notice when my son made a surprise visit home from Abu Dhabi. It was my birthday and my daughter Kate had arranged for a portrait of the four of us as a gift. I'd always wanted a picture of us all together....a sort of heirloom, a moment captured in time on a print and not on a sim or a memory card. Alison went out of her way to fit us in around her own plans and holiday. The photo shoot was at our home and Alison brought everything and set it up very quickly. The whole experience was so enjoyable and fun, and the photos were icing on the cake. We loved it! The photos themselves are amazing, I love them, we all do and have ordered extra as family gifts. I would recommend Alison to anyone, her work is fab but it's worth mentioning that she is also the sweetest, lovely lady and it was a pleasure meeting her.

David and Sheila Laird, Liverpool

Chris and Sue Wells, Liverpool

We would not hesitate to recommend Alison Dodd Photography to anyone who is thinking of having a series of portrait pictures taken for either business or personal reasons. When Alison visited us she was polite, friendly and professional. She set up and later dismantled her studio quickly and efficiently, and was adept at getting just the right shots. We were also very pleased with the finished product, which Alison had carefully retouched to improve them even more. We would be delighted to use her services again in the future and she is definitely one of the best photographers we have used. We hope her business goes from strength to strength in the future. Very best wishes, Chris and Sue Wells

Alison Jones, Aintree, Liverpool

Alison was extremely professional and made me feel very comfortable throughout the session. She listened to my requirements and ensured they were met. I am thrilled with the final photos and impressed with Alison's communication and prompt response in getting the final images. I would definitely recommend Alison to anyone requiring headshot photography in the future. Alison Jones.

I recently moved to Liverpool on a short term work contract and been a photography junkie, I googled and was drawn to Alison’s website. As with anything new, I was slightly apprehensive but any anxieties I had disappeared the minute I met up with Alison. She truly has a way of making you feel like you have known her for awhile - she is an ultimate professional. The weather was not at it’s best having being born in warmer climate and all but Alison rolled on the floor at times and went to all sorts of lengths to ensure we got the best angles. Long story short, I got the edited photos a few days later and sweet mother of moses did I underpay her for her services. priceless moments encapsulated forever - thank you so much Alison.

Shino's Coffee Lounge, Liverpool


I would like to say a massive thank you to Alison for the fabulous photos of Shino’s Coffee Lounge. She has really brought the place to life, and her attention to detail and professionalism is second to none. Her photographs have really helped to promote our business, and her expertise shines through in the quality and layout. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison for any professional photographs. Many thanks Alison. Best wishes Sinasi Capkan

Headshot Photography: They are excellent I am happy apart from I was trying to look 15 years younger - Aah well you can't win everything. My company was happy with everything. Once again I shall be happy to refer you on any future recommendations.

The Jones Family, Cronton, Knowsley, Merseyside

We had Alison photograph our 6mth old daughter and found her very patient and understanding. We were very pleased with the photographs and would definitely recommend Alison to our friends.

Heather Vaughan, Little Sutton, Cheshire

Alison came to my 'big birthday' party with over 70 people present, and I was truly impressed with the quality of the photographs, and the natural way that she captured my friends and family.  The cameos are lovely, as are the 'action' shots of us all dancing.  I particularly liked the addition of some black and white shots; they added a lovely contrast and were totally appropriate.  I'd definitely recommend Alison to anyone wanting to capture those special events on camera.

Kerri Bankes, Liverpool

Beautiful photographs! Alison, you cleverly captured our little girl's personality in keepsakes we'll treasure forever. You invoked a sense of fun and freedom to the shoot, making it such an enjoyable experience, thank you! We'll be back again, and have been enthusiastically recommending you to friends and family.

Ann & David Lipscombe, Chester, Cheshire

We felt quite apprehensive for Alison's visit to our home with her mobile studio but within minutes we were totally relaxed and enjoying the experience. Alison has a knack of putting you at ease and in a very short time was taking some great natural photographs of us. We are absolutely delighted with the final results which shows Alison's skill and professionalism as a photographer. As a result we will certainly call on her again and will recommend her to our friends and colleagues.
