Family Photography Focusing on Unscripted Moments

Families Living in Co. Dublin, Meath, Kildare, Wicklow and beyond.

What if the moments you take for granted were as important as the big milestones?

Documentary family photography captures your family’s unique story. It showcases the love, joy, and sometimes chaos that come with raising children.

My goal is to provide you with an experience that feels natural & relaxed for everyone involved.

The resulting images will be spontaneous, authentic & deeply personal to YOU.

I am ready!

I couldn’t think of a better gift to myself or our family than the beautiful albums of photographs that Johanna made for us. They will be treasured always!

Not only did I enjoy the photoshoot itself, but I loved the finished pieces (albums and prints). I love the quality and I love how the kids personalities were captured so well.

I marvel at our photos around our house daily and feel the power of that day.

Family memories are little treasures that need to be preserved.

From your vision to printed photos, I take care of everything!

I can photograph any stage of your family life. What matters is that it is important to you and you would like to preserve it from time (and normal memory loss).

What to expect Get in touch

Meet Johanna, your photographer:

In our homes, among our beautiful messes, in the spaces that mean something to us. I want to remember everything about my children’s childhood: the scenes, the experiences, the smells. This is impossible, of course. But I know that a photograph can bring us back to a season in the past. And I want to give you this gift of memories.

Family photography for those who…

are expecting a new baby and want to capture “life before you”,

have a newborn at home and want to remember the fog of the early days,

cherish crazy everyday family life with their toddlers or teenagers,

or want a special family event captured,

Using a documentary approach to photography and bringing my laid-back personality, I provide you with a safe space where you can relax, be yourself, and forget about the camera.
