Celebration of Life Slideshows by Martin Harris from MH Photography
In 2007 my wife and I went through one of life’s experiences we all face sometime in our lives. In the space of three months we lost my mother and both her parents.
Since that time, as a Hampshire Photographer I have been looking for something that would help with the grieving process. It was about 2years ago when I met a photographer who occasionally compiled slideshows for a funeral director. We spoke and the conversation that I had sparked my interest. I undertook some research and with the help of a few friends I decided to add this to my business.
What benefit could this be?
Celebration of Life slideshows are about paying tribute to an individual by celebrating their life. It’s using the images and or video taken over a lifetime adding a soundtrack of music or spoken word and displaying the slideshow at a family and friends gathering. The gathering could be a funeral wake, golden wedding celebration, a retirement, significant birthday, wedding and I am sure that you can think of a few more.
A Celebration of Life slideshow brings together the images/video that have been stored in a box, a book, on a pc hard drive and gives the opportunity to share those memorable moments with others. People can rediscover those forgotten moments, to learn of moments unknown but above all to remember the times that we were spent in that persons company.
The slideshow can be watched time and time again. It is a lasting memory that forms part of the family tree and can be handed down to the younger generations, leaving a legacy of what has passed and who people were.
Are you thinking of how you can leave a legacy, then contact Martin and talk to him about having a slideshow commissioned for you.
