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.

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.

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.
