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!
