AliLulu Portraits – New portrait website launch!

Portrait studio nottingham
I’m delighted to officially launch my new portrait website and branding – AliLulu Portraits by Alison Edwards.

I’m very excited to launch this new chapter of my photography business. For those that don’t know me or my work, I have been a professional photographer since late 2008 when I set up Alison Edwards Photography where I have been photographing newborn and children’s portraits and wedding photography.

A few months ago, I decided to separate my portrait and wedding business so that I could represent both genres of photography individually. As my studio gets busier, I feel it’s the right time to make the move and I’m really looking forward to branching out a little.

Other than a new branding and website, there is no change to the everyday running of my business so for those that have used me in the past or have portrait and wedding sessions booked, I will still be the photographer for both AliLulu Portraits and Alison Edwards Photography.

About AliLulu

The name of AliLulu came about on holiday this summer and is something very personal to me. I ran this name by quite a few people before taking the plunge and the feedback was really positive with most people saying it was a catchy name. There’s a bit of debate going on as to who came up with the name; myself, my mum or my son! Either way, the name is a collaboration of part of mine and my son’s names, whom I make no secret is my inspiration in photography and why I am lucky enough to be doing a job I love so much.

If you would like to read about how I started in photography, you can read more about the AliLulu story by going to my (new) website at

My portfolios are separated into two menus: AliBABY is my portfolio for newborn, baby and maternity photo sessions and LuluKIDS is my portfolio for children from 1 year old and upwards including teens and families.

I’d love it if you could take a few minutes to have a look through and let me know what you think. I still have a few tweaks and additions to add to it but I hope you like it so far.

I will also be updating the products and packages I offer for portraits and I will be putting together a new brochure for this shortly.

Alison Edwards Photography will now represent purely my wedding work. This website is in the process of being updated to reflect the new changes so please bear with me whilst I make those in the next few weeks.

I’ve know I’ve been pretty quiet on the blogging side but I will be updating my blog here with weddings and over at AliLulu Portraits with portrait sessions.

If you already follow my social media pages, you can also join AliLulu Portraits’ social media pages by clicking on the links in the side panel of the website.

Gift Vouchers/Orders

If you have purchased or received gift vouchers via Alison Edwards Photography, all valid vouchers will be redeemable through AliLulu Portraits. As already mentioned above, I will still be the photographer taking your photos.

Any existing portrait galleries will remain in their current location with the password and link which you received from me. Likewise, all blog posts to date will remain on this website and all new portrait blogs will be at AliLulu Portraits.

If you have any questions at all regarding portrait sessions you have booked with me over the next few months, please contact me via my website or by telephone on 07977 499473.

Thank you x

Autumn photo session in Nottingham

It’s seems to have been a while since I shared any photos of my son here. Although I do have them, I have been holding off with sharing them as I wanted to share them to coincide with a new project of mine (to be revealed soon!).

It seems a shame to hold off on this for too long though as autumn shoots are beautiful for children’s portraits and family portrait sessions.

Here’s one of my photos from the weekend – it was actually remarkably warm hence my son ditched his jumper!

If you would like to book an autumn photo sessions, it’s a great time for these to take place and, of course, they will make wonderful Christmas presents!

If you would like to enquire about a children or family portrait session, please contact me on 07977 499473 or via my website.
