London's documentary family photographer

They say that with children, the days are long but the years are short.  As your family grows the precious, crazy moments together can fly by in the blink of an eye. Freeze time with beautifully honest contemporary family photography that your children, and their children in turn, will treasure for years to come.

My documentary family photography work is unconventional in many ways because I don’t try to capture perfection. Instead, I will tune in with what makes you unique and real. It’s this spontaneous, natural style that captures the true essence of your family and gives my work a photojournalistic quality.

No awkward posing required, a family photoshoot with me is a chance for you to spend time being together and to be yourselves.

Enjoy your trip without worrying about the family photos. Your adventures will be documented forever for you and your children. And for once, you’ll be in the pictures too! I know all the best Central London spots – including snack stops and playgrounds with a view to keep little ones happy – and have documented London adventures for families from all over the globe.

London family photoshoot pricing

A typical photography session with me is around three hours long and custom designed to fit in with your family, your children’s ages and your routines. Session fee starts from £345. Following their photography session clients invest between £1500 and £3000 and can choose from a range of heirloom albums, frames and digital-only options.

Most of my clients invest in a handmade museum-quality album as well as framed fine art prints for the walls – both beautiful keepsakes to hand down to your children. I help you choose your images and meticulously art direct the production of your albums and wall art to tell your story in the most beautiful and authentic way. 

“Antonina is one of the best family photographers you’ll find in the UK. She was such a pleasure to have in our home and we were all totally relaxed with her. I will cherish the pictures, but more importantly my son will see what a fun childhood he had and how much he was loved.” — Nicky

Hi, I’m Antonina. Nice to meet you.

I’m an award-winning photographer and educator based between London and Surrey. I’m a mother, photographer, bookworm, geek and hippy-at-heart who loves to travel and has been known to throw caution to the wind.  I use my camera and my curiosity to find love, joy, beauty and humour in unexpected places.

“We’ve had family photoshoots in varied countries, none was like the ones we had with Antonina, she truly captures moments in the most beautiful way.” — Norah
