First Baby of the Month Win for Mackney Photography!
It’s a first winning image for Mackney Photography in the September 2017 Baby of the Month competition! Their image of baby Morgan (captured by photographer Lola Hall) was popular with our Mum’s judging panel and he receives a £100 Mothercare voucher, as well as a place in the 2017 Baby of the Year competition for a chance to win £5000!
Lola told us “I’m thrilled to achieve my first winning image in the competition. I started working as a professional photographer in 2007, so this year marks 10 years of being a studio photographer. I have been at Mackney photography for 4 years and have personally developed more in 4 years than I ever had in the previous studio and throughout studying a BA. I found a passion for studio photography thanks to my dad and his hobby.
My main experience is photographing babies and families. I love photographing newborns and sitters the most, but also love the cheeky challenges toddlers bring. We have lots of beautiful vintage props in the studio which are so much fun to create classic looking images for our lovely customers.”
