Discretely capturing kindness and compassion

My Philosophy

Funeral Photography

One of my clients, Margaret, wrote

‘when we were blinded with grief at mum’s funeral, you were our eyes’.

This is my raison d’être: being there for families, capturing what they cannot see; allowing families to reflect when they are ready.

Funeral Books

My books allow families to grieve beyond the day of the funeral since it gives them practical things to do like gathering tributes, choosing photos and approving my page layout designs.

This practical work allows families to reflect on their relationship with the deceased and just as importantly, allows them to honour the deceased.

FUNERAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND FUNERAL BOOK DESIGN

My Services

Funeral Photography

My funeral photography is discrete and unobtrusive.

I never pose people unless asked.

I work without flash whenever possible.

Funeral Books

My most important service.

I design funeral books which contain photos, family histories, poems, eulogies, family trees and anything else the family wants.

Candid, compassionate and discrete.

Funeral Service Photography

During the service I never pose people or use flash photography.  Discrete candid photography allows me to capture the sombre mode of family embracing, children deep in thought, and friends crofting the bereaved.

Funeral Committal Photography

During the committal I focus on capturing people saying goodbye for the final time, a young daughter comforting her mother, a father showing his young son how much his father-in-law meant to him.

Funeral Wake Photography

The wake is a time to reminisce, to laugh and to celebrate a life. During the wake, if asked, I will photograph family groups, maybe the tennis club, the neighbours, even the staff of the retirement village.
