Since 2009 I’ve had the pleasure of photographing many wonderful families from across the globe. This is just a small selection of the kind words they’ve had to share about their experience of a family photoshoot with me.
“Nothingis set up artificially, and that’s what works so well and produces the really fantastic shots”
“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. I can’t recommend her enough!“
Karolina & Mark, Twickenham
“We got immediate response by email to our initial query, suggestions for the photoshoot, we talked in advance about what we were hoping for and felt we were listened to, on the day we felt that there was no rush and expectations to perform and so it all went much better than expected. We are a family of people who hate being photographed – uncooperative grandparents, self-conscious parents and a small baby – yet the photoshoot felt totally relaxed. And then we got the photos back so quickly and the only problem was which ones to choose!”
Sarah and Christian, Italy
“Thank you Antonina, for beautifully capturing our time in London. Our daughter warmed up to you right away, and had so much fun that she was sad to see you go at the end of the day! The photos are absolutely amazing – I’m so glad we chose you to continue our annual family photo shoot tradition!”
KAREN & COREY, CANADA
“We are a family of people who hate being photographed – yet the photoshoot felt totally relaxed.”
“Antonina first photographed our family when I was pregnant with our second child. We have worked with her 3 times since and every session has been amazing. She has repeatedly produced portfolios which are impossible to chose from and photo books that are too beautiful for words. She topped this all off with avideo of our family in Hampstead Heath, before we moved out of London. Working with Antonina has been a dream. I don’t know how we’ll find someone in the US to replace her. Thank you for capturing such beautiful memories!
I’ve recommended Antonina to all of my friends in London, especially those with children. She instantly made my children feel comfortable, to the extent that my son refers to her as his friend. This has made all the difference in the world, as she’s always captured them at their best.”
April and Mike, London and New York
“She has a magical ability to encapsulate all of our different personalities and family dynamics in still images.”
“Loved every single photo that Antonina took! She was lovely to work with and we even forgot she was there sometimes!”
Fawz & Abdul, Kuwait
“THANK YOU so much Antonina! Our images are beautiful it is even more beautiful than I expected. Working with you was so much fun and relaxing. These pictures will be cherished forever!”
“Our experience with Antonina was outstanding and well worth the investment. Our young daughter can be shy, but she quickly became comfortable with Antonina. She was such a wonderful “stranger” to spend the day with!”
“She made the whole experience fun and easy and nothing was too much trouble”
“We wholeheartedly recommend Antonina. She skilfully drifted between actively entertaining the kids to blending into the background and catching what felt like private moments. 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 AND STUART, ST MARGARETS
“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, NEW YORK
“From the beginning booking to getting the final prints, it was a pleasure working with Antonina. She made the whole experience a fun, easy and nothing was too much trouble. The end result was just what we wanted, and even more. I would definitely use Antonina again and would recommend her to my friends.
FAYE & CHARLES, WIMBLEDON
“We all found the whole experience fun and relaxing – it didn’t feel like 2 hours at all. You made it look very simple getting great shots without any posing or direction to the kids. We’re delighted with the pictures and think you might be seeing us again. Thank you again Antonina.”
LIZ & CHRIS, SURREY
Thank you soooooo much I loved the pics and the albums. The quality of the paper and printing is excellent. Can’t wait to show them to my family.
Muna and Ahmed, Saudi Arabia
“The Best Ever! 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.”
“I found Antonina 7 years ago and asked her to do a family shoot to capture our 10 month old and celebrate our engagement. We absolutely love the photos she got for us, so when we wanted another family shoot recently we didn’t hesitate to contact her again. And, of course, again she has managed to beautifully capture ‘normal’ family life. I’m not sure how she does it, but she has a magical ability to encapsulate all of our different personalities and family dynamics in still images.”
“Antonina was an absolute joy to work with. She was responsive to all my queries prior to the shoot. During the shoot, she gentle, patient and connected well with all of us, including my kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our photoshoot experience and loved all the pictures. The photos were exactly what we were looking for, natural, candid and had so much emotions encapsulated.”
