Why At-Home Family Photography Sessions Are So Important | Dubai Family Photography

I started off my professional photography journey as a Dubai family photographer doing outdoor photoshoots. I’m a sucker for natural light and just love being outdoor capturing families in beautiful sunlight. But really, most of my practice happens indoor. I am a mom, first and foremost, and I spend a lot of time with my family. Photography is naturally a big part of my life and as I started offering more in-home sessions, starting with newborn sessions and expanding to cover families of all shapes and sizes, I fell in love, and I fell hard! To the point that, now, I absolutely 100% prefer doing an in-home session rather than navigating the crowds outdoor to capture that pretty light.

Why? Because in-home photography is the perfect way to capture a family exactly how they are. The pictures will always, always be unique; each family’s home is guaranteed to look different than anyone else’s. It is meaningful and it is relaxed; people are more comfortable in their own zone, and to be quite honest, for me, I love the challenge of finding the pretty light in the little nooks and corners of a family’s home.

One of the things I’ve noticed most moms really appreciate about in-home sessions, is that there is very little coordination involved. As a mom, you won’t need to pack up all of your things to go anywhere. You don’t even have to be on time to meet your photographer at a location in the middle of nowhere. Your family can just relax and be themselves while being captured authentically.

Below are some of my favorite in-home sessions that I photographed over the past year. I can come back mentally to each and every one of those moments, and I know I will surely always cherish them!

A Dubai Desert Maternity Shoot | Dubai Maternity Photographer

The Dubai desert is one of my FAVORITE backdrops for a dubai maternity photography session. It’s neutral, it’s got just enough greenery to make it look interesting and not completely baren, and it’s simple enough to make any subject you put in front of it pop. As a photographer, you have to work a bit harder to bring out your client’s real emotions, but that is exactly what I love about it all.

We barely had any sun for this particular session, but it worked out just fine. When the sun did come out though, we milked it as much as we could, and walked away with some awesome memories and photos.
