About me

I bring the uniquely creative style of documentary photography to families and photographers around the world.

Sabine Doppelhofer

I want to tell your family story with exciting and unposed photos.

Are you also sometimes afraid of waking up and suddenly your child no longer does such a lovely behaviour? Time passes so quickly, especially with small children, and they grow up so fast. 

As a mum, I know how quickly the wonderful things are often gone overnight, such as breastfeeding, crawling, carrying in a sling, etc. When I miss these things, I just take a photo book out of the cupboard or watch a slideshow and can take a little trip back in time and bring them back a little bit.

This is exactly the gift I would like to give you and your family. I want you to remember all the beautiful details of your family life and especially how it felt back then. This is documentary family photography. 


Documentary Family Photography

You would like to capture real and wonderful moments in your life? Don't want posed and staged family photos and feel more comfortable with a family reportage? Then you've come to the right place!

Mentoring / Workshops

Do you have questions about documentary family photography, storytelling or how I manage as a successful family photographer not to show the children's faces? I am happy to pass on my knowledge to you.


"The Day in the Life shoot was the best investment we have made in a long time. The pictures are a real treasure and the children love looking at the album and slideshow. Sabi managed to show us exactly as we are and the day was stress free and relaxed from the start."
Family S.
"We thought long and hard about booking a full day and whether documentary family photography was worth the money, but now we know it's worth every euro! The photographs taken are priceless and our children will be able to enjoy them and dive into our world for decades to come. We are totally thrilled and will do a family documentary every year."
Family K.
"The best photographer! An eye and a "feeling" for the right subject and the right moment. Absolutely recommendable for family photos as well as business photos!!!!."
