Welcome to my world.  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.


I’m a Russian born Brit who has been living in the UK for 15 years, and working as a professional photographer since 2009.  During that time my work has been featured in The British Journal of Photography, The Huffington Post and Vogue Italia, among other places.  

I’m based in London and Surrey in the UK, but I have photographed families from all over the globe and travelled to the USA and Europe with my clients. 

I’m ranked within the Top 10 Family Photographers in the World by the Family Photojournalist Association,  although it’s the positive feedback I receive from my clients which I hold as my highest accolade.


My aim is simple: to give you and your children lasting memories of their childhood and stories they can keep forever.   Watch the video to find out what this feels like.

Photos that tell a story

“Antonina is a really gifted photographer. She takes photos that are not only beautiful and make you proud to be in the picture, but also photos that show emotions and tell a story. She has taken photos of my family 3 times now and each time we were delighted with the results”

My 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 journalistic quality.
