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!
