An Art Lover's Family Session | Abu Dhabi Family Photographer

Abu Dhabi never fails to impress me. I’ve loved all my sessions there, and this one here is no different featuring the adorable Kayed and Layan.

This session was gifted to Maisa and Tariq by Maisa’s sister in law, Moza. Moza got in touch with me while I was in Chicago and we coordinated everything while I was away. So when the day finally came and I got to meet these adorable munchkins I was beyond excited. Add to this the fact that Maisa and Tariq have two little dogs, and we have a recipe for a wonderful time :)

Why At-Home Family Photography Sessions Are So Important | Dubai Family Photography

I started off my professional photography journey as a Dubai family photographer doing outdoor photoshoots. I’m a sucker for natural light and just love being outdoor capturing families in beautiful sunlight. But really, most of my practice happens indoor. I am a mom, first and foremost, and I spend a lot of time with my family. Photography is naturally a big part of my life and as I started offering more in-home sessions, starting with newborn sessions and expanding to cover families of all shapes and sizes, I fell in love, and I fell hard! To the point that, now, I absolutely 100% prefer doing an in-home session rather than navigating the crowds outdoor to capture that pretty light.

Why? Because in-home photography is the perfect way to capture a family exactly how they are. The pictures will always, always be unique; each family’s home is guaranteed to look different than anyone else’s. It is meaningful and it is relaxed; people are more comfortable in their own zone, and to be quite honest, for me, I love the challenge of finding the pretty light in the little nooks and corners of a family’s home.

One of the things I’ve noticed most moms really appreciate about in-home sessions, is that there is very little coordination involved. As a mom, you won’t need to pack up all of your things to go anywhere. You don’t even have to be on time to meet your photographer at a location in the middle of nowhere. Your family can just relax and be themselves while being captured authentically.

Below are some of my favorite in-home sessions that I photographed over the past year. I can come back mentally to each and every one of those moments, and I know I will surely always cherish them!
