Hiring A Family Photographer Before Moving House: Check

Embarking on a new chapter in life often means leaving behind cherished memories and moments, but with a documentary family photoshoot, those memories can be preserved forever. As this family prepares to move out of their beloved home in Ireland and begin a new adventure in Germany, capturing the essence of their everyday life has never been more meaningful.

Hiring a photographer before a move or major renovations isn’t just about documenting the physical space; it’s about capturing the laughter, love, and unique moments that make a house a home. And remember, you don’t need to live in your forever home to hire a photographer – every chapter of life is worth celebrating and preserving.

They opted to do the first part of the session at home, surrounded by packing boxes, and then head over to their favourite spot at the Curragh.

While the photoshoot in itself wasn’t any different from a family session where the family isn’t moving, the photographs will have a very different meaning to the family.

I personally don’t remember anything from the first two apartments my parents lived in, and they didn’t take many photos because these were short stays. I have a curious nature and I would LOVE to see what my first homes looked like.

So, don’t wait for your “forever” home to hire a photographer, and take plenty of photographs of family life within the different rooms, especially if you’re going to leave (or renovate) soon.

We were moving house & country, the place our son was born. As a photographer myself, I knew that having professional photos done was very important.

I don’t like posed photos and prefer to be captured in my daily life, silly faces and everything, so hiring a documentary photographer made total sense. I knew Johanna was awesome at her job, and I trusted her 100%.

I really don’t know how to describe it, but when I first saw the images, I felt a warmth inside.

And now I get to feel it all over again every time I flick through our printed albums.

She is THE one! Go ahead and hire her.
