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.


An Abu Dhabi Baby | Dubai Maternity and Baby Photoshoot

Sometimes waiting till the very last minute to have a maternity photoshoot isn't such a bad idea. Why? Because when it comes time to receive your maternity and newborn photos you have the wonderful opportunity to have them all edited and presented together :)

That's exactly what happened with my beautiful sessions here with lovely mommy, Bhavna! 

We met at a beautiful spot near Saadiyat Island and spent some time making memories of their last trip to the ocean as a family of two, and a few days after, Bhavna went into labor and welcomed her beautiful baby daughter, Aathirah. 

What I love about these maternity and baby photoshoots is the beautiful opportunity to see the before and after transformation that families go through. 

Thank you for this lovely time we spent together! And I can't wait to reunite with you again soon!
