Celebration of life

End of life and Funeral Photography

When most people hear the word “funeral” they think of a sad, lifeless, or morbid event.We believe that funerals should be held to celebrate a person’s life journey here on earth.

Photographing funerals to honor the past and to enlighten the future. What if we all could look three generations back at our ancestors’ funerals and see photos? Could you imagine the value they would hold in each of our lives?

Funerals are one of the major three events where most family members reunite at a single location and on one accord. They are the occasion where most people set their differences and grudges aside because in that very moment it is not about them.

Why?

Death. It’s always a subject that many people tend to avoid, even thinking about let alone talking about, but as they saying goes, two things can be guaranteed in life, Death and Taxes.

A funeral is a time to reflect on a persons life and can be a beautiful memory, looking back on a loved ones life, their loves, their hobbies, their family and a life well lived. It’s also a time of grief where memories and details can be lost in the moment. You’ll think “I’ll never forget the day” but the reality is, you will, because the mind protects you. It’s hard to understand now, but there will come a day, (perhaps an anniversary) when you will want to look at the funeral, and the people and friends that were there and supported you in your time of grief and loss.

Funerals are one of the major three events where most family members reunite at a single location and on one accord. They are the occasion where most people set their differences and grudges aside because in that very moment it is not about them.

Why do I offer Funeral Photography?

 Whilst I have been primarily a Wedding Photographer for over 10years, I have had the pleasure to not only capture people in their last stages of life, an experience that is not only heart wrenching but so special to both myself and the family.

As a person, my personality is warm-hearted, compassionate, ethical and real. I am in fact a life documentary photographer, so I asked myself this question; why do we document every major event in our lives, but treat death as such a taboo subject?

We capture our loved one’s achievements and milestones throughout their life; why do we stop capturing as soon as our loved ones are gone?

Grief!. We have all experienced grief, it blurs out all our thinking, it makes us forget about everything around us, it blurs us lateral thinking and our mind wants us to just forget. Let us capture those close family moments celebrating your loved one’s final goodbye, in a discreet and caring capture.

End of Life Photography

Photographing the final moments of the Terminally Ill

Being involved in organisations that provide services to beautiful couples facing terminal illness, I have been blessed to be able to capture the last moments of some of the most courageous and lovely people facing the worst.

Photographing couples and family in a non-obtrusive way, I have been able to deliver precious photos that families can look back on, and the feeling when I hand over is heart-warming and bittersweet. The feeling of giving them images of those cherished last moment to look back on after their loved ones have passed and the grief has taken over.

Whether your loved ones are in palliative care, in their home or hospice we will be there. Facing the through of a future without someone can be heartbreaking, but we want you to try and enjoy those last moments, we photograph in a non-obtrusive setting, allowing you to just be natural with your loved one as we stand back and capture moments that you can cherish.
