Richmond Family & Baby Photographer

Candid and Natural Family Photos With Zero Cheese

Welcome! I’m Antonina. I’m a family photojournalist specializing in candid, natural family photography that involves zero cheese and absolutely no posing.

I believe in seeing extraordinary in the ordinary. I believe that real is the new perfect. I believe that children deserve to have lasting memories of their childhood, and have photographs of them with their parents, playing, walking, exploring – and even going about the day-to-day things.

I’m passionate about creating meaningful family photographs for families from across the globe, and work all across London.

With no bright lights, flashes or studio equipment, and no pressure on a child to “behave”, these at home photography sessions are guaranteed to produce beautiful and meaningful family photographs you will treasure forever.

Older children can be tricky to photograph as they are becoming more and more self-aware, but engaging them in the physical play where they can show off their skills and get lost in a moment is often the best way to go.

A winter family vacation photoshoot in London

A winter family vacation photoshoot in London

This American military family was visiting London in January over from Italy where they were stationed at the time, and they reached out to me to document their London adventures before baby number two made an appearance. Despite what you might think, it doesn't always rain in London in winter and we do have wonderful crisp sunny days and the low northern winter light gives that extra special look and feel to the photographs - but to be honest I can take great family photographs in any weather, rain or shine!

Moving to Mars at the Design Museum

Moving to Mars at the Design Museum

On Monday we visited Moving to Mars over at the Design Museum in London (it's on until 24th February, do try to catch it before it ends). ⁠ ⁠⠀ It was a beautiful multi-sensory exhibition and it was cool to see both the history and the future of exploration of Mars, including stepping into an inflatable Mars pod and seeing and hearing Martian storms rage outside.
