My clients tell me that one of the amazing things about having pictures taken is seeing how much their children love them. To be reminded of that in a single frame is priceless.
Perfectly imperfect — just the way you are
No awkward posing required, a family photoshoot is a chance for you to spend time being together and being yourselves. It’s fun, relaxed and natural and I will capture the everyday interactions and relaxed portraits that make your family unique.
My photoshoots are not about looking like the perfect family — there’s no such thing! They are about looking your best, and you’ll look your best when you’re surrounded by people you love, playing, laughing, snuggling and just being a family.
“Antonina’s work is amazing. Not only is she a very talented photographer able to catch angles and moments that seem impossible to capture, but kids just love working with her, making the whole experience so much fun!” — Anna
Greatest hits (so far)
I have been photographing families all over London and overseas since 2009, so it’s truly impossible for me to include all my favourite images into this selection. Here are just some of my favourites from over the years.
“She succeeded in capturing the personalities of my children perfectly. Her energy and attention to detail was notable from the introductory phone call to the personal delivery of the final frames and albums. We are very happy with the final product and enjoyed every step of the process.” — Christie
Let’s stay home
A photography session with me is a fun, relaxed experience that everyone can enjoy (yes, even the reluctant dad). No need to rush getting ready or wrangle your children out of the door first thing in the morning.
I arrive while everyone is still having breakfast and capture your early morning routines. Your children will love playing at home as it’s where they feel most like themselves – and belive me, your real, everyday life is more than good enough to be photographed.
We will dedicate most of our time together to capturing one or two family activities or everyday routines, whether at home or on location nearby such as your favourite park or playground. The sessions can last anywhere between two and four hours depending on how big your family is, the ages of your children, and what you’d like to capture. Time will fly as you’ll be going about your everyday life, and not awkwardly posing in a park!
Don’t stress and don’t try to be the perfect parent (they don’t exist). Just be yourselves and leave the rest to me. The results will amaze you.
“Antonina managed to capture our very ordinary Saturday afternoon in such a beautiful way. Looking at the pictures really warms my heart.” — Caroline
London family vacation photoshoots
Take your family for a real adventure in London. It’s a glorious location for a family photoshoot with its iconic landmarks, historic architecture, quirky backstreets and green parklands. I know the city well and how to find great places to shoot that fit in with your plans and children’s ages.
I will spend the morning or an afternoon with you, photographing as you explore.
“Antonina was gentle, patient and connected well with all of us, including my kids. The photos were exactly what we were looking for: natural, candid and had so much emotion.” — Ting
Creating family heirlooms
A handmade museum-quality album or framed prints for the wall are beautiful keepsakes to hand down to your children. I will help you choose your images and meticulously art direct the production of your pictures to tell your story in the most beautiful and authentic way. You can also choose a digital archive for the freedom to share and print over and over.
