Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?

FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our United Kingdom family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.

The purpose of documentary family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Northern Ireland family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

Lancashire Family Reportage Photographer, Janina Brocklesby

I am a proud Mummy of two amazing children Michael and Grace. These two certainly keep me on my toes. I have been married to my best friend John since 2010, therefore family means everything to me and we love spending time together. Hiking, travelling, making memories and having fun are extremely important to me. I am a morning person and often I will get up at 5 am just to enjoy a good coffee, early mornings are a perfect time to do that. I love an outdoor lifestyle! Therefore long walks and campfires are right up my street! I am a huge animal lover, I used to have horses but now we only have our dog ‘Freeman’. He is a huge part of our family! I’ve grown up in a home where all forms of art were greatly appreciated. My Grandma still owns an art gallery. Photography has always been my hobby and passion! I speak Italian and Polish thanks to my family bloodlines! I like pizza, cheese, gin, pizza, cheese, pizza (did I mention that I like pizza?) I also love holidays, driving, reading and obviously I love PHOTOGRAPHY! Above all, a good night out with friends is a must now and again! Although I love travelling and meeting new people. I also always find time to go to the theatre to see a good show too.

Ireland documentary family photography by Marie O'Mahony

When I take pictures of someone, I fall in love - each person becomes the most fascinating & beautiful person ever. I want nothing more than for you to see yourself and your family through my eyes - because your life story is worth celebrating. You’ll find out in about 2 seconds of us talking that I’m not Irish - I’m American. You see, I met my (often) wonderful and (always) sexy husband 15 (fifteen! eek!) years ago while I was studying at the University of Limerick. I’ve been taking pictures for about that long as well. But something happened when our oldest was born. Time started to go at an alarming rate, and I became driven to capture as much of life as I could - the good and the bad. That passion became my calling and my profession, and I've been invited to share people’s lives in the most beautiful ways.

Northern Ireland Birth Sessions at Home or Hospital

An experienced family photographer who specializes in documentary birth sessions will be able to capture your labor journey, the birth experience and the immediate reaction that you have when you see your baby’s face for the first time — all while respecting your space. The right photographer will be able to use discretion while focusing on the fleeting moments that you will want to remember from your birth experience. Whether you plan to give birth at home or at the hospital, you can book a documentary birth session with a professional reportage-style birth photographer.
