What a gorgeous baby boy that came for his Abu Dhabi newborn photography session a few months ago. I constantly feel extremely lucky that I am able to capture this very precious time that goes so fast.
For 6 years, I have been specialising, in Abu Dhabi newborn photography. I had the opportunity to capture my friends newborn and I instantly knew I wanted to continue the path of photographing babies. For me, specialising, meant that I could focus on one genre and dedicate my time and investments to newborn photography. Over the years I have been able to make contacts with some amazing vendors whose beautiful products have kept me loyal. In baby Nico’s session the adorable teddy bear hat and the pillow are from the very talented Mokumba photo props. The best quality flokati rugs are by Luneberry and I think I am very close to having nearly every colour.
People always ask me what makes a good newborn photographer. Without question, it is patience. There are some, very occasional, days that it can take almost an hour to settle a baby before you even pick up your camera. Or times when you get the baby perfectly posed and then the baby gets a little fussy and needs a little cuddle. I think having experience as a nurse has definitely helped. Although I am sure my husband and children would argue I use all my patience at work! Apart from the obvious technical aspects of photography, I also feel developing your own style is important. Some photographers prefer just working with neutral colours, others love digital backgrounds. My style is very soft light with the use of colour and neutrals. Some sessions might involve contrasting colours, some my be the use of the exact same colour or different shades. I prefer to use more delicate props that are timeless, ensuring families are happy to keep the pictures hanging on their walls for a very long time.
