Hi, if you’ve got this far you’ve probably looked through my portfolio and  the information about me and now want to make sure I’m the right photographer for you.  Here’s why I think you may like to choose me as your photographer.

MY STYLE.  People say I have a modern yet natural and creative eye which I hope is reflected in my portfolios.

If you are investing in photography it’s important to find someone whose style you like.    My aim is always to produce photos that do not date and will stand the test of time.



I’M A MUM.  I promise I will be patient with your children and will not be pushy or rush them at all.

My son is 13 now so I’ve seen the toddler stage, appreciate that some children will be shy and understand some may find it daunting to having their photo taken by a stranger.

“She was so patient with our very energetic (to put it mildly) 2 year old and was so calm and gentle with our new little girl.” Morgaine and Anthony

CUSTOMER SERVICE.   I am professional at every stage.   I provide a personal service from beginning to end working on my own (with a little technical and admin help behind the scenes from my son!)

A lot of my work comes through recommendations or existing wedding clients when they start a family.   My studio is not a conveyor belt and I limit the number of sessions I book to ensure excellent service.

DEDICATED.   I’m extremely passionate about providing you with photos you will genuinely love.

“I can’t quite believe how much I love the photos Ali took of my family…they capture us perfectly at a special time in our lives.” Franca

I’M PERSONABLE.   I like to think I’m pretty easy going and friendly and make people feel relaxed in my company.

“She’s able to instantly put someone at their ease and the photos were the best I’ve ever had.” Olivia

I INVEST IN TRAINING.   As well as general photography training, I have taken newborn training courses to ensure that babies are posed safely during my newborn sessions.

EXPERIENCED.   I’ve been photographing children since 2008 and weddings since 2009 under the name of Alison Edwards Photography.

In 2014, I launched AliLulu Portraits to represent purely my newborn, children and family portraits and Alison Edwards Photography is still thriving with my wedding work.

I hope you like what you have seen.   If you think I’m the right photographer for you, please get in touch.  I’d love to photograph your family.
