“‘A picture is worth a thousand words”

– Fred R. Barnard

Chances are, someone loves you and cares about you, a lot. You are valuable to them and one way you can demonstrate your appreciation for them is to plan a photo shoot and have a good photo taken of yourself or with them. This is not vanity, but in fact a form of kindness.

A picture is worth ten thousand words and if you’re facing death, what better memory for those you love so dearly to treasure.

Imagine your roles are reversed and one of them was dying. We can almost guarantee you’d be so encouraging of something like this.

As it currently stands, have a think about what your best photo says about you. A great photo that is done right will capture your essence and tell a story about you, and it will be priceless.

Planning a photo shoot can be anything you want it to be and can be done in whatever location you choose. Death and dying is not a pleasant topic but living is and no matter your circumstance, a good photo shoot can make sure, even for just the day, that you are living


We encourage you to get a good photo taken before dying, and while not always necessary, a professional photo shoot is worth every dollar. This is particularly true if you think that you are not photogenic or could not be bothered. The skill of a photographer is to make what you may think is impossible a reality, One very important tip is to make sure you feel at ease with the photographer and see samples of their work before going a head. If you don’t like what you see or feel comfortable, try another one.
