Welcome! I’m Antonina, a Russian-born and England-based documentary family photographer. I’m passionate about creating meaningful family photographs for families worldwide.

I believe in imperfection and staying true to yourself. I believe that every family is unique and that uniqueness is meant to be captured, preserved and bottled up for the future.

And that’s why I do what I do.
