A Birthday Photoshoot at La Mer | Dubai Family Photographer

This was my first time ever shooting at La Mer, I know! I can't believe it took me that long to make my way out to that part of town. I was waiting for the perfect shoot, and when Zainab contacted me to help her celebrate her little son, Naseem, turning one, I just could not not mention this location to her! Zainab flew in from Saudi, La Mer was new to her and she was open to all the suggestions I made, which made for a wonderful shoot and time together!

As with most of my outdoor shoots, this one took place really early in the morning, partly to avoid the crowds, but also, because I absolutely love the quality of the light first thing in the morning. It's soft, and dewey, and not too harsh and also not too golden.

Needless to say, it was a blast! 



From KSA to UAE, a Holiday Maternity Session | Dubai Maternity Photographer

Have you ever thought about hiring a photographer while you're on family holidays? I actually love the idea, and loving the fact that more and more families have started contacting me to do that today since the session I blogged last June, (check it out here!)

Roeya and her beautiful family were visiting from Saudi, a sort of baby moon before Roeya's twins make their debut in May. We met on a cloudy, chilly morning this past winter. If you know me, you know I'm a lover of sunshine, so I was a bit disappointed by the lack of sunlight in the sky, HOWEVER, I have to say that we made some beautiful photographs and took full advantage of the beautiful clouds in the sky. We never have clouds in the sky that often in Dubai, so when they make an appearance, we have to snap them up like the paparazzi! 

I can't share all the shots from this session, but this one is my favorite! When nature and the universe conspires with you to document a wonderful moment in time.
