Enduring Memories

During an Enduring Memory session, I see relief and relaxation in the faces of everyone. That simple hour photography session gives permission to share hugs, cry, smile. And laugh together. An Enduring Memory session can be for those who don’t normally get images taken because of disability sensitivities; families who are facing loss during life's hardest challenges, or when a higher level of understanding, empathy, and compassion is needed. I specialise in capturing Enduring Memories in images that are meaninful and priceless. For Enduring Memories sessions where families whose dynamic structure includes intellectual, physical, and sensory disability challenges, we can discuss a ‘meet me’ time prior to the actual photography session to assist with recognition and a stress-free environment.

The ‘while you can’ moments

A photography session during the ‘nothing is normal’ times is an effort. A huge effort. There is the urgency of time, the lack of energy, the good and bad days. Believe me, it is worth the effort. These sessions are done on location - whether that be your home, a hospice, or at a favourite park. Designed to be at your pace and stress-free.

Why I believe Enduring Memory

sessions are so important

Enduring memories are so important to me as I have lost so much and don’t have the

images I wish I did

Back in the 1980s, the world was very different to what we know today. Photos were not done freely, at least, not in my family. There’s a box with some prints in it, mainly school photos. My older brother, my hero, the total opposite to me but everything to me … developed cancer. I was 9 and he was 11. After 10 or so months of hard fought battles, he lost the war. I have just one last candid snapshot of me in my school jacket, John with a bad wig and ill fitting clothes, standing apart and neither of us looking particularly happy. It was a quick snap. It was the last photo. I wish there had been an effort to take the time and create something to have a memory of hugs, love, and smiling faces. My most meaningful sessions, have been the ones to capture the enduring memories. It’s something I wish I had of my brother, and other people I’ve lost in my life. I have done many Enduring Memory sessions throughout my career and it is my honour to share my skill and my ability to create them.
The best way to describe Kaye’s work is that she brings out the best. As a family we were very happy that we chose Kaye for our precious family photos and were very happy with the end result” Pavlou Family. In memory of Aretti

Kaye truly cares about what she is doing and has an understanding of the importance of capturing a family memory. Although the photos were taken at a sensitive chapter in our family, we felt buoyant and at ease with Kaye’s naturally happy nature. We cannot thank her enough for the special moments that we will have forever. “ Glenys Foster

My brother & I, 1980. John had such a couragious fight against cancer. Here, he was barely able to stand. This is the LAST photo I have of him. This is also the ONLY photo I have of the 2 of us since we were babies.
