A Nigerian Princess is Born | Dubai Fresh 48 Newborn Photographer

Rukayya and Sufyan welcomed their second baby girl, Nadine, two years after the birth of their first child, Nadia. You would remember seeing Nadia for when I covered her Fresh 48 and naming ceremony that took place in Abu Dhabi at that time.

Being reunited with the family once again to cover this momentous occasion was a true honor, its always such a great feeling knowing that your repeat clients trust your skills as a Dubai Family Photographer to capture such essential moments in their family’s history. This Fresh 48 story is no different. This time Rukayya decided she didn’t want to stay in Abu Dhabi for the birth of her baby girl, and wanted to follow her OBGYN and birth at Al Zahra Hospital in Dubai. Speaking of her experience, Rukayya said it was nothing short of wonderful and that she was very happy making that decision. I think one of the most important aspects of a successful delivery is the level of comfort and confidence a birthing mother has with her birthing team and the people she surrounds herself with, so kudos to you Rukayya for not being afraid to venture out of Abu Dhabi and for making the journey to Dubai to welcome your baby girl into the world!

Check out the video for this session in next week’s post!

An Al Zahra Hospital Fresh 48 Session | Dubai Newborn Photographer

Sanam and I had been talking back and forth on Instagram for many, many months prior to the birth of her precious second son. She found me when the lovely ladies at Baby and Child Magazine published an article on my work in birth photography and was interested in hiring a Dubai Birth Photographer. It’s always so lovely connecting with people online, specially when you finally get to meet them, and realize that they are your tribe and some of your biggest supporters!

Unfortunately because of scheduling complications, we couldn’t schedule a birth shoot, however, we were able to shoot the moments immediately after Sanam gave birth to her son, and this also coincided with her eldest meeting his new brother for the very first time. The session was quite emotional for everyone (even me! Pregnant at the time with loads of hormones running through my veins, so you can imagine!)
