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.

I believe that children deserve to have lasting memories of their childhood, and have photographs of them with their parents, playing, walking, exploring – and going about the day-to-day things.

And that’s why I do what I do.



Capture the first days and weeks of your new baby’s life. From all the tiny details to your feelings for this new human being you created together and the wonder of getting to know them.



My aim is to capture the essence of you and your kids as human beings, document the magic of the everyday, the little things that so often go unnoticed or slip away from our memories.
