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.

Imaginary life was definitely way more interesting than any of my immediate surroundings! Now, as a mother, I find less time to read for myself, especially fiction books. I mostly read (well, listen to) business books when driving, and read children’s books together with my son.

So books being a huge part of my own childhood, and my life as a mother now, it’s no wonder that I often encourage my clients to include reading time into our photoshoots. Here’s why.

What love really is, in 20 family photographs

I'll be honest. I don't love Valentine's Day. Don't get me wrong. I'm a BIG romantic at heart. I sobbed my way through The Bridges of Madison County, I binge on Outlander (the books - although the show's nice too) and as a teen, I thought Arwen and Aragorn were...

Best Family Photos of 2018

I can’t quite believe 2018 is almost over – can you? There was this one meme floating on the internet which I can’t now locate, but it basically went like this: 2018 was like “January, cold, World Cup, heatwave, heatwave, football is coming home, heatwave, December”. That’s definitely how it felt to me.
