My Work

Professional 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 purpose: being there for families, capturing what they cannot see; allowing families to reflect when they are ready.

Why funeral photography?

On the day of the funeral you may feel lost in your feelings. During this time, discreet and skilled professional funeral photography can help capture deeply significant images.

After the funeral, you are left with the option to share these precious memories with your family and close friends, whether they were present or unable to attend.

Many families want these images to serve as a poignant reminder for young children, when they are older, to show how loved their parents or grandparents were.

Moreover, these tender images can play a significant role in supporting your grieving process, providing solace and a tangible connection to cherished memories that bring comfort during this difficult time.

Funeral Service Photography

During the funeral service, I approach my photography with the utmost care and empathy. I understand the importance of preserving the authenticity of the moment, which is why I only capture discreet and candid shots.

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.

Keepsake Books

keepsake book

My most important service.

I design keepsake books which can contain photos as well as family histories, poems, eulogies, family trees and anything else the family wants.

My keepsake 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.
