An Abu Dhabi Newborn Session | Abu Dhabi Newborn Photographer

Who else is a major sucker for babies? I just LOVE babies; their innocence, their positive disposition to life, their easy laugh and their sparkling eyes. Major baby fever here, I know, but you can’t blame me, I’m pregnant. It’s probably a good idea I enjoy being an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer!

This session will forever go down in the books for me, and I will be grateful for that day for the rest of my days… it is exactly because of this Abu Dhabi newborn photo session that I can pinpoint the exact moment I found out I was pregnant with our second baby, thanks to our beautiful furry friend, Tessie (you can see her beautiful face if you scroll all the way down)

Egla and Olana, thank you for trusting me with little Raphy’s very first newborn session! I hope you continue to document your beautiful family as the days and years go by xo

Welcoming Finn | Dubai Newborn Photography

I still clearly remember the very first time Katrin and I spoke on the phone - I was on call in Abu Dhabi for a birth at Danat Al Emarat hospital, waiting for a call from my client to let me know she had gone into labor. Her call added so much joy to my day because of her warmth, her easy laugh and her over the moon excitement for welcoming her newborn baby! We were meant to shoot a maternity session together prior to the newborn session, but low and behold, little Finn had other plans and came Earth-side before his due date! This isn't the first time this happens to me, and it always makes me laugh from the depths of my heart - we can plan and anticipate, but our babies, and most importantly, God, may have other plans. 

One of my biggest lessons as a Birth and Family photographer has been to have Faith; that things work out for the best always, that if things were to happen they were meant to be, that God is in control of everything and always has my back. I didn't want this blog post to take a religious/spiritual turn, but I can't deny that my A-type personality that LOVES control didn't struggle (and sometimes continues to struggle) with these types of issues.

Alas, people come into our lives for a reason, and the day Katrin called me gave me a tremendous burst of energy that I was able to carry into my birth session with my client later on. Thank you Katrin!
