The passing of a loved one is a seminal moment in time. We capture moments throughout our lives with photographs which put us in the context of time, of place and to preserve the chance of looking back and to have access to those moments once more. To have bespoke photography at a loved one’s passing does offer that chance to capture another set of moments and memories that can be looked back on in the life ahead.

In my experience families have looked upon a loved one’s passing as a celebration of their life; of bringing and remembering all of the stories and physical possessions together in one place on one day to share with family and friends at that celebration. Photography can be used to capture that celebration and to preserve those personal details as well as serve as a positive healing process in the days, months and years to come.

It may be capturing a place of particular significance at a special time of day or point of the year. Services could also include gathering other photographs, collecting farewell messages and photographing personal memorabilia to make into a special book or memorial.

Any photography services would start with a meeting to discuss the approach that the family and individuals would like.
