Hi! I am Annika, a child photographer in London, specialising on outdoor natural light photography.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
— Aaron Siskind
Being busy in our everyday life often lets us forget to cherish the little things, to remember them. I felt this immensely when I worked as a doctor and tried to be a good mum to my three children at the same time. I decided to take a step back and instead of rushing through their childhood I wanted to enjoy and capture it. I always had a passion for photography so getting a solid photographic education at college was the obvious next step. Now our often chaotic life inspires me. And I find pleasure in turning our everyday moments and encounters into art and in using art to remember the details.
Experiencing how much I treasure these images of my children made me want to capture this for other families, too. As a child photographer I enjoy turning those fleeting moments into small pieces of art in a genuine, authentic, and joyful way.
