Abu Dhabi Baby Photography – Baby Gideon’s mini session

For an Abu Dhabi baby photography session, one of the packages I offer is newborn mini sessions. They are very popular with clients who don’t require thirty plus images but still want to capture this very special milestone. The mini sessions last approximate 60-90 minutes and include 2 props and all the basic poses on the beanbag. For the Abu Dhabi baby photography shoot it is the parents responsibility to chose their two favorite props and colours to be used. Due to the time restriction there are no family images.

Baby Gideon was an absolute pleasure to photograph and so adorable. I was thrilled when his lovely mum told me their colours choices. The light blue and green compliment each other perfectly. The little suitcase, which is very popular with clients, was a great find in one of the home stores here in Abu Dhabi. The dimensions are perfect for newborn babies. The adorable wrought iron wheel barrow from TFJ Design is a big favorite with parents for boys and girls. When the clients have chosen their colours, I will accessorize with the hats, wraps and headbands. I always make sure I include the very cute teddy bear hats from Mokumba photography props. Occasionally if the baby is unsettled, I will use wraps to make them feel more secure. If they wake up we will end the session with capturing their sweet expressions.

Two weeks after the session I will send the gallery to the parents with about 25 images, they then choose their favorite ten that will go on a USB with a 6×4″ prints. The gallery is online which means the parents can take some time to choose and they can share it with friends and family. There is also the option to purchase more digitals or other products available.

Abu Dhabi Newborn Photographer – Studio Products

Over the years, as an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer I have researched thoroughly the products I am proud to offer my clients. My biggest purchases are my digital packages. With every digital package 6×4″ prints will be provided of every image. This is for quality assurance, to demonstrate to the parents how the digital image should look when they obtain their own prints. Recently I have changed my packing to beautiful wooden image boxes and USB’s with my logo engraved, from Wooden Banana in the UK. I love the wow factor they give to my clients. I decorate them with twine and beautiful dried flowers that my lovely mum makes for me. Inside is a little surprise of sweets to enjoy while you look through your prints.

As an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer my hope is that when the clients receive their digital images they will be excited and proud to display them in their homes. One of my favorite products is the stunning wooden photo blocks from the Original Photoblocks in the Netherlands. They can be purchased in collages, circle or oval and in various sizes. Traditional canvas’ are also available to purchase as an extra to the digital packages.

Abu Dhabi Newborn mentoring – Refresher courses

In my studio, I offer 1:1 and 1:2 Abu Dhabi newborn mentoring. Earlier this year I had two very lovely sisters, their photography business The Photolounge, located in Oman, came for a teaching session. Their speciality is Wedding photography, so they felt learning the art of newborn photography would help to expand their business. They have done amazingly since their mentoring, just before the summer they felt a refresher course focusing on areas they are still having a little difficulty may help them even further.

In November they attended an Abu Dhabi newborn mentoring refresher course. We had four amazing babies come as adorable little models. One of their favorite poses, the potato sac pose, we focused on quite a bit, especially the wrapping techniques to help to keep the baby secure and protected. As wedding photographers they are extremely experienced so camera technique wasn’t a priority. We worked on angles and the direction of the light to the baby. Posing in the props was covered and how to keep the babies supported and safe. Quite a part of the day was learning about the beanbag poses and the easiest way of transitioning the babies, disturbing them the least amount as possible. The last part of the mentoring was briefly concentrating on my editing process for them to incorporate into their own style.

Gorgeous Christine was the only girl on the day. I am so pleased I styled with deep purples as they complemented her skin tone perfectly. The teaching days provide me the opportunity to use colours clients don’t usually pick as their first choices.

Dylan was our first baby of the day and his lovely mummy is a past client. I had the honor to photograph Dylan’s older sibling twins about four years ago. One of my favorite set ups of the day was using the little cushion and hat from the original photo blocks.

The last baby of the day and the smallest was perfect Mason rocking the mint and white colours. We focused on the transition of the baby from the amazing Luneberry rugs to props set ups, for those times when the baby is unsettled.

UAE Newborn Photography – My Editing workflow

For my UAE newborn photography business, I have established a style to my editing process, that to begin with didn’t come easy. Six years ago I was that photographer who’s photoshop was jam packed with action after action. I loved experimenting, although they were a great tool to give some pop to your image I found my editing style was chaotic, no two sessions looked the same as I was using too many different ones. As I was new to photography, my camera technique was still very inexperienced, I would struggle with exposure and color balance. This meant each gallery would take me about 7-10 hours to complete.

I decided to start taking online courses on photoshop and Lightroom. Damien Symonds levels and curves workshops were probably the biggest help to the start of my clean editing technique. For UAE newborn photography I feel strongly it is very important to get as much correct in camera as possible. Great lighting, exposure and color balance makes it so much easier to perfect the babies skin tones. Each season will now take me about 2-4 hours to finish a 50 image gallery.

My workflow begins with importing into Lightroom, where I will do minor tweaks on exposure and color balance using the adjustment brush if necessary. This is the location where I cull my images to then export into photoshop. For eighty percent of my editing I use photoshop. I will recompose the image if necessary, using the transform tool or cloning to add more background. The majority of the session is then based on correcting the babies skin, removing baby spots and flaky skin, plus using the color balance tool to achieve a more pleasing skin tone. Portraiture is a great plugin on a low opacity to smooth the skin. I use levels and curves to take away the grayness to an image and give it more pop and contrast. The editing process is completed by sharpening the image for print.

I love seeing other photographers unique style of editing, Bianca from Bumps Baby Beyond photography, Leicester, edites very clean and soft. I particularly love her tones. She takes baby pictures in Whetstone, Leicestershire, East Midlands.

Baby Photographer Abu Dhabi – baby Helena

As a baby photographer Abu Dhabi, I had the pleasure to photograph this beautiful baby girl in December, one of my last babies of 2017. Her lovely mum contacted me in October to find out how to book a newborn session and what packages I offer. Once the potential client has viewed the price structure if they are happy to proceed, the next step is paying the deposit to secure their session. This means they will receive priority when the baby arrives for a session appointment within the first 2 weeks.

As a baby photographer Abu Dhabi the ideal age to capture this precious milestone is within the first 10 days. This is when they are still used to being curled up in the foetal position so are contented in the various poses and they are still very sleepy. Once the baby has arrived and a date is given to the parents, they will receive the information package and are asked to choose their 4 favorite props and colors. I was thrilled when baby Helena’s mum asked to incorporate blues in their session. To ensure it still, had a girly feel, I was able to be creative and include some of my favorite accessories. Wraps from Pastelowe ny and headbands from Created by Carli. One of my favorite props to use is the adorable blue and beige basket from Woody Wonders, the babies are always snug and secure. In any of the prop set ups, my amazing assistant is close by with her hand a fraction away, observing the baby all the time.

After the newborn session, it takes me approximately a fortnight to finish the completed gallery. If given permission on the day of the session, there will be a little preview of about 5 images on social media. After the parents have viewed the online gallery, they will then choose their package. All my digitals will always receive a 6×4″ print so they know how the quality should be when they use their digital to get their own prints, canvas’ or albums.
