Tombstone Photography Lets You Choose How You Want People to Remember You

by Hazel Chua

Death is inevitable. That’s where we’re all headed, although when exactly – we’ll never know. But just because we don’t know when we’ll go doesn’t mean we can’t prepare ahead.

Tombstone PhotographyPhotographer Frieke Janssens agrees. That’s probably why she came up with tombstone photography in her project called ‘Your Last Shot.’ The series basically features portraits that the subjects will eventually use on their tombstones. Each will bear a caption with the subject’s name and birth date, followed by a dash where the date of death is to be filled in.

My aim is to make an iconic portrait that is beautiful, serene and fearless, preferably with a gentle smile, indicating that the model is clearly aware of the fact that this portrait will be used for a very long time to come.

You can view more shots from the series in the gallery below.

Interested in having Frieke shoot your tombstone portrait? If you’ve got at least $1,060+ to spare, then you can. That’s how much it will cost for a shoot with Frieke, complete with makeup, assistance, styling, and post processing.
