Hello Baby Boy! | Dubai Newborn Photographer

Welcoming a brand new baby into your home is no small feat. I can think of two such occasions, first, when the baby is your first born; you feel clueless and in disbelief that anyone allowed you to even leave the hospital with a new baby in your arms. The second I think is welcoming your second born. Somehow the transition of going from one kid to two kids is really overwhelming. You’re not quite sure how to integrate your new family, how your first born feels or how they will react, and how your identity as parents to more than one child will finally shape up to be.

I have to say coming back to see Sanam and her family rock their new family structure has been such a pleasure. Don’t forget to check out the video to get a glimpse of their Fresh 48 session that I shared with you guys in this previous post!

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!
