“she has a gift for capturing life“
Hello! I’m Antonina and I’m a mum, a wife and a photographer.
Ever since I was little I had this niggling desire to capture the everyday (well, that was after I wanted to be the female version of Indiana Jones, but hey!). Not the grit of the everyday, but the beauty of it, all the little things that so often go unnoticed or forgotten in the heat of the moment.
The goofy smile, the genuine giggles, the yogurt face, the stomping in puddles, the mum and dad cuddles, the newborn yawns, the look on your face when you’re expecting your first baby… And also those tiny hands exploring your skin, those little feet with curling toes, the look of wonder on their faces as they see a fish in a pond, the way they copy you when they blow you a kiss… All those special moments you wish you could just bottle up and keep forever.
My photography sessions are a relaxed experience, the time for you to spend as a family, reconnect and enjoy being together. I will be on hand, stepping back when needed, calling for tickles when required, and I will capture all this – your wonderful family, your love for each other – through my eyes.
Five random facts about me:
I am a book worm and I’m obsessed with buying books (actual books, digital just doesn’t float my boat). Finding time to read them all is another matter.
I didn’t take up photography until I was 25. Before that I was a lawyer. It wasn’t half as much fun though.
I love chocolate, cats and wild swimming. Not necessarily in that order.
I love travelling and discovering new places, but also coming back to rediscover the old favourites. My top 3 destinations for far? Orkney Islands in Scotland, Malta and Norway.
Oh, and I wear jeans. ALL. THE. TIME.
