A Dubai Desert Maternity Shoot | Dubai Maternity Photographer

The Dubai desert is one of my FAVORITE backdrops for a dubai maternity photography session. It’s neutral, it’s got just enough greenery to make it look interesting and not completely baren, and it’s simple enough to make any subject you put in front of it pop. As a photographer, you have to work a bit harder to bring out your client’s real emotions, but that is exactly what I love about it all.

We barely had any sun for this particular session, but it worked out just fine. When the sun did come out though, we milked it as much as we could, and walked away with some awesome memories and photos.

A Birthday Photoshoot at La Mer | Dubai Family Photographer

This was my first time ever shooting at La Mer, I know! I can't believe it took me that long to make my way out to that part of town. I was waiting for the perfect shoot, and when Zainab contacted me to help her celebrate her little son, Naseem, turning one, I just could not not mention this location to her! Zainab flew in from Saudi, La Mer was new to her and she was open to all the suggestions I made, which made for a wonderful shoot and time together!

As with most of my outdoor shoots, this one took place really early in the morning, partly to avoid the crowds, but also, because I absolutely love the quality of the light first thing in the morning. It's soft, and dewey, and not too harsh and also not too golden.

Needless to say, it was a blast!
