Mommy and Me at Two | Dubai Family Photographer

I think one of the biggest disadvantages of being a mother who is also a photographer is that you forget to get yourself in the frame. I made a promise to myself last year that 2017 will be the year I change that, and I'm happy to say I've fulfilled that promise for my child. 2018 will be the year I take this forward one more notch, in what way, I still don't know, but I know it will be fun!

This is Fatima and Talah's second Mommy and Me session with me, and it was just as fun as the first time. It was lovely seeing how much Talah has grown, and how much her love for her mom has grown exponentially. Two years old is always a tricky age to photograph because the kids are really curious, some of them have just mastered walking, so they are taking full advantage of that fact, and hence, rarely want to do what you want them to do. The secret is to let the children take the lead, and follow wherever they go, and the result, is magical memories of their exact moment in time, captured to forever enjoy.
