Documenting life's precious final moments...

That it shall not come again is what makes life so sweet.

-Emily Dickinson

What is End of Life Remembrance Portraiture?

Most of us see photography as a celebration of life's milestones and achievements. It certainly is.

Most likely, not many of us have given a ton of thought to capturing the final moments of life to keep and cherish. Yet, it can be the kindest and most honoring act of love any of us could provide.

In life, we photograph births, birthdays, school milestones, weddings, and anniversaries. We cherish these events and photographs allow us to look back with fond memories. The precious moments of life.

This, too, is End of Life Remembrance Portraiture.

It is a short documentary of a long, healthy life well-lived.

It is a snapshot into broken hearts of mothers and fathers cradling their stillborn baby.

It is a sister who wants her life, not her losing battle with breast cancer, to tell her story.

All photos are edited with care and preserved in classic black and white for future generations to appreciate, free of fleeting editing styles and fads.

Due to the delicate nature of End of Life Remembrance portraiture, once my editing is complete, I will deliver a private, digital gallery of edited proofs for clients to view and choose from. I then request that favorite poses are selected for printing. I can get on the phone with you to decide which sizes will work for everyone who wants a print. You have choices in print sizes, textures, framing, mounting and much more. Don't worry, you don't have to decide alone. I am knowledgable in all my print store has to offer and will help you decide each detail. Once we do that, I will then have these selections printed through a trusted print lab I have used many times before and shipped to a home address in a professional and secure package.

At this time, I do not offer digital-only sessions as I feel it is my duty to complete each session by doing the legwork of printing, and framing if desired, these final, precious portraits that mean so much.

It is my honor to serve you.
