A White Maternity Session | Dubai Maternity Photographer

Before jetting off to Chicago last summer, I had the distinct pleasure of shooting a maternity and newborn combination session for Thuraya and Eyad’s growing family. This lovely couple was expecting their second baby girl, six years after their first born was born, so you can imagine just how special and exciting of a time this was for everyone involved.

Thuraya has impeccable taste, both with her fashion as well as her home. Her maternity session was a dream to capture. I often advice my families not to wear 100% matching colors and outfits. Why? Because when do people ever wear exactly the same thing when they are seen in public? Rarely, if ever. Everyone has their own personality and expresses it through their own fashion sense. So the only directive I provide is to wear complimentary colors and styles, no loud prints, logos or stripes (stripes look weird on video). And boy did Thuraya and her family score.


A New Best Friend | Dubai Family Photographer

The best part of being a Dubai birth photographer is having the fortune to watch families welcome new members into their units. It is always a pleasure watching families grow, and I am always so honored when I get re-invited into their personal spaces to document new milestones. 

I had the pleasure to document little Noor's entrance into the world. I was one of the first people to watch her arrive, and also her first family photographer as well! Just thinking about that gives me the sweetest kind of butterflies :)

Here is a look back at her newborn session in her home, in Abu Dhabi. We spent the day around the house doing normal every day activities that were already part of her normal routine, and I adjusted my shooting to fit in with their family schedule. I can't share all the pictures from the session, but what I can share below are some of my absolute favorite things that I've captured for this beautiful family.
