Abu Dhabi Baby Photographer | Baby Aseel

After a whole year of mainly boys, it is so nice as an Abu Dhabi baby photographer, to start having beautiful baby girls come to the studio. This very adorable baby girl came for her session at 3 weeks old. Ideally the newborn session should be done under 2 weeks. However, I have still had very good results with older babies. The session should be adjusted to accommodate the age. There are certain poses that are not as comfortable as the baby isn’t as flexible so they should be avoided. For the Abu Dhabi baby photographer editing is far easier as older babies are less likely to have jaundice and their tone is much more natural. As long as the parents follow the advice before the shoot, we should still have a happy, sleepy baby. Her lovely parents did an amazing job keeping her awake and as they lived only 5 minutes away meant that she was amazing in her session. I could have cuddled her all day.

Being a baby photographer in Abu Dhabi means that most of our props have to be imported from overseas. The cost of shipping can be very expensive. This means I am very particular about choosing the best vendors and I will stay loyal to them and continue to purchase their products as I know they are amazing quality. An example of this is the stunning rugs from Lunberry. I think I am on my way to owning virtually every colour. Two of the props, the pram and the bed, chosen by the parents for their session, I have had for a very long time from Jd Vintage props. I continually follow my favourite vendors to see any updates for new products that I can invest in to add to my overflowing collection. Purchasing from well known vendors also helps to ensure the products are safe to use for the babies.

Please Enjoy Baby Aseel xx

Dubai Newborn Photographer | Teaching Session

As a Dubai newborn photographer I offer teaching session in my studio located in Abu Dhabi. In January I had the great pleasure of mentoring 2 sisters from Oman. Their business name is The Photo Lounge that specialise in wedding photography. The ladies decided that newborn photography would be a great addition for their past and future clients. They contacted Catherine last year for more information on the mentoring sessions taught by a Dubai newborn photographer.

Luckily they had family in Abu Dhabi they were able to stay with. Most of my mentees travel from all over the Middle East for the day to learn the art of newborn photography. The day started with parent preparation and what advise I give them on the morning of their shoot. I covered styling and how we choose colours and props. Apart from safety the most important thing taught on the day is lighting, what I use and the direction in relation to the subject. As the ladies were very experienced there was no requirements to teach camera technique, only the settings I tend to use and the reasons.

We were lucky to have 3 gorgeous babies. As a Dubai newborn photographer,  two weeks before the teaching day I was able to put out a model call. The babies must be less than two weeks on the day. The parents receive digital images as a thank you and it is completely free for them. The first baby was a boy and was our smallest. We went through the usual workflow that I begin with. Spending time on the wrapping techniques. I taught them the best and safest transitions so the baby isn’t disturbed too much. We covered props and the basic poses on the beanbag. A sweet baby girl visited us next, then after a little break for lunch, we had the final baby. I was so pleased to be able to use the gorgeous flower halos from Created By Carli. The ladies at the end were then able to practice on the  stand in baby treating it as a normal session.

The final part of the teaching day is editing using lightroom and photoshop. We choose 5-7 images to work on so they can see my usual workflow. My editing style is only a guide for the students to see how you can get a beautiful finished image quickly without using too many effects through actions. After the training day the mentees can keep contact with me continuously for support and advice. They are able to become a member of a private Facebook workshop group for only past students.

For more information on the mentoring days email Catherine jilliangreenhillphotography@gmail.com

Al Ain Baby Photographer | Baby Sultan

As a Al Ain baby photographer it is extremely important to have a consistent style. This consistency will be achieved through lighting, styling, poses, props and most importantly editing. My style is very light and soft with plenty of colour. My editing is very clean and crisp. This means when a client chooses you there is no confusion on the type of session they will receive and the final product.

Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
To enable me to get the full potential from each session I have a particular workflow. Occasionally the baby may change my workflow depending on how comfortable and settled they are. I always begin the session with what we photographers call “the potato sack pose”.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
The babies are wrapped several times and are upright in a sitting position. I find the babies are usually more settled in this position and being swaddled means they go into a lovely sleep. The temperature in the studio is also just right, as they are wrapped about 3 times we don’t want them to overheat so it is wise to have it completed before the room becomes too warm.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
From this pose I will do the baby lying on their back on my gorgeous rugs from Luneberry. This transition means I have not disturbed the baby too much and  we are then able to pose them in the same wrap in the bed or perfect size crates. Both these props are from The Original Photoblocks and are perfect for me as a Dubai baby photographer.

Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
I will do my prop set ups before moving onto the beanbag poses.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
I have always found the babies feel more secure in the props and less exposed.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
I will also follow the same workflow on my blanket poses changing slightly if the baby isn’t happy and needs extra cuddles.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com
The most important aspect of my workflow is trying to disturb the baby as minimal as possible. They are trying to sleep and with reason can become a little grumpy if we are constantly moving them.
Al Ain Baby Photographer | Jillian Greenhill Photography | www.jilliangreenhillphotography.com

I chose Baby Sultans session to show my typical workflow, we were able to cover so many set ups and poses giving his parents an extremely full gallery with over 60 images.

Please Enjoy xx

Dubai Newborn Photography | Baby Noah

Dubai newborn photography sessions preferably should be done when the baby is less than 2 weeks old. This is when the babies are still flexible enough to go into the “womb like” poses comfortably. They will sleep much longer and don’t mind being unclothed as long as the environment is warm. I prefer to wait until 5 days after the birth to ensure the mums milk supply is established to have a happy baby with a full tummy.

In November this adorable baby boy came for his Abu Dhabi newborn photography session with his lovely family. It is not very often that my session is styled completely neutral  but at his mummies request we kept to this them of whites and beiges. I did manage to squeeze in a little colour using the adorable pillow and hat set from the Original Photoblocks. One of the props he was very comfortable in and one of my favourites, the little basket from Newborn baby posing.

Baby Noah definitely made my job easier when it was time to edit his gallery with his beautiful smooth skin. A lot of babies that come for their Abu Dhabi newborn photography session can be jaundiced, or have baby acne. I also advice the client that we shouldn’t delay their session until the baby’s skin tone is normal. In photoshop we are able to improve the skin tone and appearance but also ensuring we keep it natural. I am very careful to avoid making the baby’s skin look un-natural. These are skills and a style that I have developed over the 5 years of photographing newborns.

This very lucky baby boy is going to have two incredible big sisters to look after him. They were a pleasure to photograph and made the last part of the session very easy for me.

Please Enjoy xx

Newborn Photographer Dubai | Baby Rafferty

As a newborn photographer Dubai I frequently have returning clients come back with baby number 2 and at times baby number 3. Towards the end of last year I had adorable Rafferty come to the studio with his lovely mummy and then later in the session his big brother and Daddy came for the family photographs. Rafferty’s big brother did an amazing job for their images. The siblings often aren’t sure about this new little arrival, as an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer I try and get them to interact in some way to show a connection in the final image. We have some methods like hiding little toys behind the baby or asking them to give a little tickle. Catherine is always close by observing the baby at all times.

A few days before his session, I was very excited to see the colour scheme. It was so nice to avoid the common colours we do for the boy sessions. It also meant I got to use the adorable hat and pillow from The Original Photoblocks. I think I need the pillows in every colour, the babies find them extremely comfortable. Being an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer I advice the client to chose 2 main colours that don’t clash. This means that when they display their images on a wall or if they order an album, their photographs will compliment each other. Some clients will have an idea straight away what rooms the photographs will be displayed so may choose colours to co-ordinate. Rafferty’s mummy wanted colours that were completely different from her last session. Rafferty’s Daddy is a pilot so the aeroplane from Mr & Mrs and Co was a definite must. One of my oldest props, the wheel barrow is always a popular choice with parents and I feel it worked perfectly with the rustic style of his session.
