“Sometimes you will never know the value of something,

until it becomes a memory”

Dr Seuss

My Approach

I don’t believe in using cute props and having to stand still and smile. I don’t believe in having to look at the camera. I believe in walks in the park, stomping in puddles, cuddling close, cooking dinner, reading books and just being a family.

My gift is in seeing beauty in the everyday and preserving the glimpses of family life for you – from the mundane, to the funny, to the happy, to the tender, to the tired and everything in between. All of the things that swish by amidst the chaos of parenthood. All the little things that make us swell with tears as we remember how it was.

It’s a time capsule, a way to travel back in time and relive those moments, again and again.

Oh my goodness! I think you have captured every single possible expression of the kids as well as the antics they get up to!  I’m blown away! Love them all, even the ones of us in our PJ’s. You capture the essence of our family. I will treasure these forever!” — Roksana & Tariq, St Albans

The Day in the Life

From the moment the kids come into your room for morning snuggles till the moment they convinced you to read Goodnight Spot for the 58th time I will capture and show you how much you love one another and all the little in-between moments you never get to see.

SESSION FEE: 795

Session fee covers all day photography (from breakfast to bedtime) and travel within the UK. Digital collections, albums, mounted and framed prints are available to purchase following your Day in the Life experience. Please get in touch for more information about available collections.

THE 2 HOUR SESSION

The 2 hour session is perfect for those families who want to take great photographs on location – be it a London landmark shoot or a trip to a local park, or for families with newborn babies wishing to document this precious time at home. We will spend first 15 to 20 minutes capturing relaxed lifestyle portraits of the whole family, with the remaining time dedicated to me documenting an activity of your choice to create unposed, candid images of you spending quality family time together.

SESSION FEE: 175

Covers my time and talent and travel within London and Surrey. Digital collections, albums, mounted and framed images are available to purchase following your 2 hour photography session. Please get in touch for more information about available collections.

“Antonina spent the day with me, my husband, and our newborn son and managed to capture the spirit of our little family perfectly. She made us feel so relaxed in front of the camera and the beautiful photos are a reflection of this. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough” — Kate & Luke, Fulham

VACATION SESSION

Some trips deserve more than selfies. Whether it’s the yearly getaway to the South of France, the very first family trip to Disneyland or a rare extended family gathering in Santorini, hiring a photographer to document the occasion is most definitely a great opportunity to have everyone – including you! – present in your holiday pictures.

DAILY FEE: 950

Minimum 2 day booking, plus accommodation and flights. Daily fee covers all day photography for each day you’ve booked, plus the full digital collection. Albums and prints are available to purchase following your vacation. Please get in touch for more information.

“You managed to capture the very special little moments, the happiness, the excitement, the anger, the affection, the tears, the laughter that make up an ordinary day. As the boys are growing and changing so much and so fast, these photos will always be a little family treasure” — Evi & Nik, Teddington

ALBUMS AND PRINTS

Following your session you’ll have the option of purchasing a range of products, from frame-ready mounted prints to beautiful leather-bound fine art albums. Mounted prints start from 55, albums start from 396 and digital collections start from 450. Please request my full brochure for more detailed information.

“Antonina’s gorgeous photos radiate joy and naturalness and capture many little moments that we didn’t even notice at the time. On top of that she was flexible, kind and attentive all the way through – from the very first day we contacted her. We were very lucky to find her!” – Mireia, Oxford
