Hello! I’m Aina, a photographer in Cambridge who has made it her mission to capture as many special moments in people’s lives as possible.
You know why?
Because I missed the opportunity to do so with my own family and now it’s too late.
My partner and I ran a production company. We were filmmakers and made a living around cameras. But when our little one came along, life became almost overwhelming and we never took any family pictures. We didn’t even think about it.
But I so wish we had.
Regrettably, I’ve only got one picture of me, my partner and our daughter. Just one. And I’ll never be able to take any more because my partner sadly passed away while our daughter was still small.
That one picture is absolutely priceless. My daughter cherishes it and loves seeing it. It serves as a testament to us being a “regular” family at some point.
I don’t care that I look tired. I don’t care that we weren’t ready for the picture. And I don’t care that I still hadn’t lost weight after my pregnancy. I’m just thankful we were able to preserve that one special moment so my daughter and I can cherish it forever.
Sometimes, a photograph is all we’ve got. That’s why I’m now so passionate about capturing memories on film.
When you work with me…
When you work with me, you won’t just be told to sit down and smile, or do some quirky poses while I take pictures. I will guide you every step of the way so we capture the most stunning pictures of your family possible.
You will come away (having had fun) with some high quality, natural pictures you can proudly display on your walls for years to come. Visual memories that will never fade.
Sure, you can take pictures yourself (and I actively encourage it so you capture as many memories as possible), but there’s usually someone missing because they are behind the camera.
With a family photo shoot, you don’t have that problem. Plus, it’s a chance to let your hair down, have some fun and have something to look back on years down the line.
