Abu Dhabi newborn photography – Baby Brianna

I loved the color palette for this Abu Dhabi newborn photography session. A lot of parents will make the obvious choice of pink and white, so when a family choose something different, I get the opportunity to be even more creative. The richness of the tones for baby Brianna’s session made it one of my favorite Abu Dhabi newborn photography shoots of the year. Usually in a full newborn session, I will use four props and on the beanbag we will use two blankets to achieve the various poses. Brianna’s lovely parents expressed they preferred the poses on the bean bag more than prop images, therefore I made sure we had more time to do extra poses and images with the blankets. She was so good for us and even let us do some of the trickier poses.

One of the props we used is the very popular garden bed from JD Vintage props. This is a particular favorite for the baby girls. Another frequent choice from parents is the stunning wooden bowl from The Original Photoblocks. I always love to pair it with the adorable teddy bears. I find accessorizing for the Abu Dhabi newborn photography sessions one of the best parts of the job. I will often find a hat or wrap that can be my inspiration for the whole of the shoot.

One of my favorite poses to do is probably the simplest. Just using one of the amazing flokati rugs from Luneberry and having the baby wrapped on their back, can create a beautiful image. For me, it is due to the position of the baby in relation to the light. It is also a great pose for particularly fussy babies as they feel secure and snug in the wrap. In this pose I also have the opportunity to do macro images of the babies feet and face.

Dubai Baby Photography – Baby Rashid

Before the summer, we had a very handsome baby boy come for his Dubai baby photography session. Just under 2 weeks old he was an absolute star. The colors chosen are probably the most popular for a  Dubai baby photography session. I always try and make my clients galleries different by being a little creative. Using different shades and tones can help to create contrast in the image and make it pop. I especially adore the cobalt blue. Some of my favorite props were used for his session. The adorable basket is from newborn baby posing and the wheelbarrow was purchased from TFJ Designs. After six years of newborn photography, I have obtained, a huge collection of props, stored, in my overflowing cupboard.

I am a huge fan of using different textures in my newborn sessions. The very sweet little pillows help to create this and they are a great aid to assist posing the babies and keeping them comfortable. My favorite ones are from the Original Photoblocks prop shop. Pairing the pillows with a cute hat styles the set up perfectly. As you can see from Rashid’s gallery, I have so many different styles and textures of wraps that help to compliment the fabric. Wraps are also great for parents who prefer the baby covered. They can also help the wriggly newborns feel more secure and warm but remaining conscious not to overheat the baby.

For Dubai baby photography, I have to be very sensitive to different cultural needs. One of those is the shaving of the babies head. We always try to arrange the session before the procedure happens. I am so lucky and honored to capture babies with the most amazing beautiful thick hair. Baby Rashid is a great example. I could have photographed him all day.

Abu Dhabi Baby Photographer – Baby Caolan

Just before the start of the Summer holidays, as an Abu Dhabi baby photographer I was able to capture this very adorable baby boy. They are the first family were I have done all 3 newborn sessions for their beautiful babies. Returning clients are my favorite.  Being an Abu Dhabi baby photographer I decided to only specialize in newborns, which means I do not have the opportunity to see the babies grow in their milestone sessions. When the families return with baby number one or two it means I am able to see the dramatic changes in the siblings from when they were just 2 weeks old. They walk in to my studio, mostly chatting away as little people and not tiny delicate babies.

Baby Caolan is going to be a very luck little boy, with two incredible sisters to take care of him. During the family images the girls were absolute stars, having the confidence and care to hold their little brother. A lot of siblings are still very nervous around the babies, and feel they will hurt them. My assistant is always close by to maintain safety and I encourage parents to help reassure the big brother or sister that they are doing a great job.

I loved the color scheme and props chosen for Caolan’s session. The little Hammock from Kelly Ryden & Tracy Raver photography  is always a favourite. The babies, too, are big fans and always feel comfortable and settled when I use it. The adorable pillow and sleepy hat from Mokumba props complimented the hammock perfectly. This was probably my favorite set up from his session. The different variations of blue and white worked perfectly with Caolan’s skin tone. Baby blue is definitely the most chosen color for boys, so its always good for me to be a little more creative to make each session a little different.

Abu Dhabi Newborn Photography | Baby Nico

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.

Dubai Newborn Photographer | Baby Aliaa

As a Dubai newborn photographer I will often style my sessions  according to the seasons. Here in the UAE we are slightly deprived of seasons. In the Autumn I will choose colours such as oranges, browns and beiges. I think we can safely say Spring is here, so I thought I would share a session that reflects this time of year. I love the peach and mint used for this adorable baby girl. I am extremely lucky as a Dubai newborn photographer to have amazing vendors who can accessorise my many colour schemes perfectly. The flower halos are from the incredible Created by Carli.

A lot of parents when they first enquire will ask whether I provide all the props and accessories, they occasionally ask if they can use items they purchased. I always advise them to bring them to the session or send some images. Having the experience as a Dubai newborn photographer I know what will work well with the style of the session and the baby. Some of the props are way too big and can therefore overshadow the main focus, that being the newborn. I do however love to use a few sentimental items, for example parents christening gowns or their teddy bears as babies. Pieces of furniture, I feel, always work better in a lifestyle session. If possible I will try and accommodate in the studio. All my props have been chosen for newborn babies so are a perfect size. The adorable vintage pram from JD Vintage props is a very popular choice for parents and comfortable for the babies.

I feel very passionate about staying true to your own style of photography and if you are not comfortable doing something a client has asked, you must be honest with them. Even if it means losing them to another photographer more suited to their style. When your work is to be displayed in peoples homes you want to always be proud it was your best, true work.
