Kensington Family & Baby Photographer

Candid and Natural Family Photos With Zero Cheese

Welcome! I’m Antonina. I’m a family photojournalist specializing in candid, natural family photography that involves zero cheese and absolutely no posing.

I believe in seeing extraordinary in the ordinary. I believe that real is the new perfect. I believe that children deserve to have lasting memories of their childhood, and have photographs of them with their parents, playing, walking, exploring – and even going about the day-to-day things.

I’m passionate about creating meaningful family photographs for families from across the globe, and work all across London.

Kensington has a unique blend of beautiful outdoor locations perfect for a relaxed family photoshoot. From playing in Hyde Park, exploring Holland Park, visiting the museums or a picnic in your key garden, there are plenty of outdoor locations to capture your family life in a beautiful setting. Before your photoshoot, we will talk in details about the places your family enjoys the most, and design the photoshoot to capture you having a great time in some of your favourite locations.



Remembering The Little Things

When my son was born, I remember sitting in my room and sobbing my heart out. When my baffled (and obviously non-hormonal) husband asked what was the matter I told him I didn’t want our son to grow up, I just wanted him to stay this tiny newborn baby we brought home a few days ago. And then I burst into more tears as he cuddled me close, still completely bewildered.

Family Photography in Brooklyn, NYC

Back in September I travelled to New York for the very first time. It was scary and exciting and I shared a little bit of my street photography snapshots on the blog already, but this one’s all about the wonderful family I photographed while there.
