Hi, I'm Simon and I believe that photography is personal, for those who've not had the pleasure of having a professional shoot. It's about creating the right environment then capturing the personality of the subject...it's expressive. I originally trained in film processing and printing and it's this knowledge that helps us to push the boundaries. Having my own children has made me realise how important it is to capture those precious moments that pass by so quickly. It seems like only yesterday that Matilda was a baby, and now she's grown into a beautiful little girl. Time really does fly! That's why I love being a photographer - I get to preserve those special moments for families to treasure forever. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as we enjoyed taking the photos!

Hi, I'm Wendy, founder of Mackney photography. I originally trained as a fashion designer, but moved back to my hometown of Derby to start a family. I'm Mum to my amazing daughter Matilda and cheeky toddler Freddie. They are my rock and my world!

I love how photographs tell a story and how they capture a moment which you can always look back upon and treasure. Since becoming a Mum I realise more than ever, that capturing these moments is so important. Babies aren't babies for long, and once those early days are gone you can never get them back. That's why I'm so passionate about newborn and family photography. I want to help families freeze time and create cherished memories that they can look back on for years to come.

If you're looking for someone to capture your own special moments, then please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you!
