Grandpa Meets Dario | Dubai Newborn Photographer

It is always such an honor when a family chooses you as their photographer. Whether it's for a family photoshoot, documenting the arrival of a new family member, an engagement...any event really. It is an amazing responsibility that cannot be taken lightly.

When I was contacted by David to document his first time meeting Dario, his very first grandchild, I could hardly contain my words, specially when I found out that his son, Henry and, now Dario, are his only two blood relatives in this entire world. I was very humbled and felt really emotional. I had already documented the birth of Henry and Nazli's sweet little Dario,  which you can see here,  and to now shoot another huge milestone as this, meeting the grandparents, was incredibly special.

David, Henry, Nazli and Arsalan, I hope I have done this special meeting justice in your eyes, and I hope you enjoy these pictures for many years to come.
