Alison Dodd – Liverpool Photographer

My name is Alison Dodd and I’m a full-time professional portrait photographer providing mobile studio and location photography across Liverpool, Wirral, Southport, Warrington, Chester, West Cheshire and West Lancashire. I have a wealth of experience creating and producing images and have worked professionally with film and digital images for over thirty years.

I specialise in family portraits, children’s, baby and newborn photography, and as a mum realise the importance of photographing the precious stages in a child’s development, and how a professional family portrait is the only way to truly preserve those memories for generations to come.

My family portrait sessions and newborn & baby sessions include either a mobile studio portrait session in the comfort of your own home or an outdoor location portrait session at a park, garden, beach or any place that’s special to you. I also offer a wide range of mobile photography services including corporate and headshot photography, event photography and nursery & school photography.

You may also choose from a beautiful range of bespoke luxury hand-crafted frames & albums to showcase your photographs, offering substantial savings compared to well known high street photography studios. These range from contemporary, lifestyle, traditional or vintage frames to fine art wall prints, float frames or luxury hand-made digital & traditional albums with matching gifts and accessories.

Laura’s Graduation July 2018- We didn’t want the usual formal Graduation photograph. We wanted fun photographs to match our daughters fun personality. Alison was quick to reply to my emails. Alison planned an outside photo shoot around many of Liverpools iconic landmarks. Alison had obviously planned well ahead and we had a well organised hour photoshoot. Laura loved her time in Liverpool and her graduation photographs will be a lifetime reminder of her 3 years there. Alison was warm and friendly and at no time did we feel rushed. She even added a little time to take pictures with her grand parents outside the hotel we were stopping at. The final edited photographs are wonderful. The photo shoot and photographs were more expensive than I had originally planned however for a bespoke service and lasting memories..........definitely worth the money. We would highly recommend Alison.

Music Teacher

I hired Alison to cover my Christmas concert event, which music pupils have a chance to perform in a warm and supportive environment. After browsing Alison's online portfolio, I felt that her style would be very complimentary and the photos would provide lovely moments for the event, and I was delighted with the results. Alison is very professional and friendly and the pictures perfectly captured the spirit of the event beautifully. Would highly recommend! Thank Alison!

‎Sarah and Luke Curtis‎, Gateacre, Liverpool

Alison, thank you for coaxing the most enchanting portraits out of my very camera-shy family. We really enjoyed our session in Calderstones Park and are exceptionally pleased with the resulting artwork. Little boys are growing up (too) fast into big boys - would love to immortalise another chapter next year. Sarah x

Claire and Andrew Higgins, Crosby, Liverpool

Gorgeous photos and a really lovely person.... goes above and beyond to make your family feel comfortable whilst making beautiful memories!! Alison first photographed our first born at 12 months old and we have asked her back to photography our newest member of the family at the same age. Alison also captured photos of our two children together so naturally, just being themselves and has brought out their real personalities. We now have matching family portraits hanging on our walls, just beautiful. We can’t praise her patience and professionalism enough. Highly recommend!

Events & Promotions Organiser

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.

Thomas Allan and Gill Jones, Formby

We have a great framed photo for our wall and a dozen smaller ones following our sitting at home. Alison made us all relaxed and was really accommodating in doing indoor and outdoor family portraits. Recommend.

Kirstie and Jasmyne, Liverpool

Hi Alison, We have now viewed all of the finished frames and photographs and we are delighted at the quality of all of the products which have exceeded our high expectations. As well as this, the service that you have given has been exceptional, especially the mock-ups of the large frame photographs which gave us real clarity of choice. We would have no hesitation in forwarding your contact details to anyone we know that is looking for a user-friendly, top quality service. Again, many thanks for all of your help and for the great pictures of Jasmyne that we will all enjoy for ever. Kind regards John

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

Would like to said a massive thank you for making our wedding so beautiful, when arranging our wedding we wanted someone different to your normal wedding photographer, we didn't want false, static, planned, photo's, we wanted natural, personal and momentary photography, we found this in you Alison, so impressed with your devotion and pride in your work, but how you develop a close friendship with us, listening to what we would like, our wishes and your own input was fantastic, all our family and friends where so impressed with you, specially how many times you looked over the area and venue in weeks before the event, our day was perfect and we couldn't of found a more professional , lovely, friendly person as we did in you, thank you so much the photograph's were fantastic, a true professional, David and Sheila Laird.

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.

Takwana Tyaranini

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

Proprietor

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.
