You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head.
But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
Hello, I’m Antonina!
I’m a recovering lawyer, a book junkie, an imperfect mother and an extroverted introvert. I’m also a family photojournalist. Your family’s photojournalist. I document your family’s life just as it is now, and put it in a beautiful heirloom album for you so that when your children are all grown and are parents themselves they have a visual – and tangible – record of their childhood. So that they have a way to remember all the things they got up to as kids – with you, their parents.
Here’s my story.
Like most people, I don’t remember that much about my childhood. It was ok, I guess. I mean I lived mostly in my head anyway, making up stories and adventures I couldn’t have in real life. We had good times and some not so good times. I have some photographs of me as a kid. Me in a pram (apparently it was bright yellow, the envy of the neighborhood). Me with my drawings. Me with my playdough creations. Me stomping in a puddle. But what’s clearly missing in those photographs were my parents. So much so that as an impressionable 10-year-old I was convinced that because my parents were not in my childhood pictures, they were probably not my parents. Maybe I was a time traveler. Maybe I was adopted by aliens. Because to the 10-year-old me there was no other logical explanation.
My mission is to give your children lasting memories.
Lasting memories of their childhood and of you, their parents. Pictures they can look at and touch now and in the future. Beautiful photographs of your whole family doing things your family loves doing together, and being imperfect, real, crazy, messy, funny, impossible, bonkers – together. Pictures that will keep telling your story long after you’re gone.
Quite possibly, one of the best future gifts you can give your children.
