Funerals are also a time for healing and my photos of immediate family, extended relatives, friends, schoolmates, childhood friends, work friends, connections from your community and neighbours will help in this healing process.

CHURCH OR SYNAGOGUE
When I'm photographing in a church or synagogue, I focus on the traditions such as the service, the priest, the readings, and the processions with lots of respectful candid images.
During services at gravesites, I will document the immediate family arriving in the hearse or limousine, the procession from the hearse, pallbearers, priests or leader of ceremonies, family members saying goodbye and tearful reactions. I'll photograph the respects paid by attendees and family members. Lowering of the coffin, flower arrangements and laying the stones. I'll document the attendees and ceremony details and the cemetery as a whole.
My understanding of military funeral traditions like flag folding, flag presentations, rendering honours, gun salutes is vary close to my heart as my father was a respected military and OPP officer and my images as a funeral photographer is reflected in my work.
CELEBRATION OF LIFE
Even if you're not having a traditional funeral, a celebration of life can also be documented. The sorrow, the laughter and the relationships can all be remembered and photographed at this time of remembrance and gathering.
Families in their entirety will be photographed before or after funeral services if you wish. I can photograph families in a candid unobtrusive style as well as family formals when you gather after the ceremony for the celebration of life.
