Dubai Baby Photographers | Baby Casen

My little studio is located in Abu Dhabi but we still offer Dubai Baby Photography sessions. Recently I photographed an extremely handsome baby boy and his family. His big brother was an absolute delight to photograph. The sibling image is the most difficult for a photographer to capture. I usually advise clients to bring an extra family member to help entertain the sibling. The studio becomes very hot and the session can take up to 3 hours. This can be very boring for a child so we do have facilities close by that they can explore. Depending  the age of the sibling will determine how we photograph them with the baby. Sometimes it will be done as a composite, or Catherine, my assistant will help support the baby. Keeping the baby wrapped makes it easier for the brother or sister to hold them. It also means we can leave the diaper on so there are no accidents, that could potentially upset the child.

I loved the colour scheme that Casen’s parents chose for his Dubai baby photography session. We have photographed a lot of baby blues lately so it made a great change to use deeper colours that suited him perfectly. Choosing the grey meant I was able to use one of my stunning rugs from Luneberry. Virtually every session I use the adorable teddy bears. The grey one here is from Newborn Baby Posing.

Casen had a very cute birth mark on his cheek. I am a strong believer and very conscious that while editing I do not remove anything that is permanent to the baby. Marks caused by the birth, baby spots or discolouring will be reduced in the editing process to make them less visible, as they will be completely gone a few weeks after birth. I will also take the advice of the parents, it is them that will proudly be displaying my work.

Please enjoy the images from this Dubai baby photography session.

Dubai Baby Photography |Choosing your Photographer

At my studio in the UAE, we offer Dubai baby photography, I am so honoured to be able to capture so many nationalities. When you are searching for your newborn photographer you should obviously choose the style that suits you and your family. There is a lifestyle session, that is capturing the every day moments. Kirsty Larmour is a lifestyle photographer who’s work I adore. My sessions are more posed and very styled.

When you are choosing my style of photography I recommend you ask whether there will be an assistant available in the session. By having a full time assistant means that she is my spotter to ensure the baby is safe at all times. If there isn’t one, then the photographer should ask a member of family to help assist. So as a new mum if you are finding moving restrictive I advice you take another  family member or friend to help. The experience of the photographer is also important and this may very well determine the pricing. I have been photographing babies now for 6 years which means I have held a lot of babies around 1000 in total. During the session I will handle the baby virtually the whole time except when the baby needs breastfeeding. This means the parents can relax and enjoy the session.

It is also important to view their recent work, especially blogs. They will provide an insight into a full session rather than just one or two sneak peeks in social media. You are then able to see if the photographers work is consistent. I have chosen a very adorable recent baby boy with the most incredible hair to demonstrate this.

A good question to ask the photographer is about products that are available for them to purchase. Ideally you should be able to see samples of their products. In my studio we offer, albums, birth announcement cards, canvas’ and a new product from The Original Photoblocks. You are able to see these samples on the day of the session.

Knowing the props and colours that would be available for the sessions could also determine which photographer you use to ensure you receive the Abu Dhabi baby photography session you want. I feel it extremely important that the parents choose the props and colour scheme, so luckily I have cupboards full of props, fabrics, hats and headbands.

Never feel that you are asking your photographer too many questions, it is such an important milestone to be captured so you want to be sure you choose the right photographer for you.

Please enjoy the images from this Abu Dhabi baby photography session.

Dubai Baby Photographer | Mentoring

As an Abu Dhabi baby photographer I also offer mentoring sessions. Teaching has become a passion of mine, helping other photographers on their journey of photography. The mentees who attend have a wide range of experience. Some are completely new to photography, others have an established business as in weddings but want to branch out to incorporate newborns. I do prefer the students to have a basic knowledge of exposure/lighting and how to use their dslr camera.

During the workshops, I will cover:

  1. parent preparation, the information given to them to help make sure the session runs smoothly.
  2. The styling of the session, how and why I choose colours and props.
  3. Camera technique, which settings I choose and why.
  4. Lighting, whether it is studio or natural.
  5. Soothing techniques and the safety handling of the baby. We will discuss assistants or spotters.
  6. Posing of the baby, which poses I think must be mastered before trying the more difficult ones.
  7. Workflow of the session. What poses I begin with and then the transitions into the next poses.
  8. My editing style.

Aside from the safety aspect of newborn photography, I strongly feel lighting is the next important. With poor lighting even if the baby is posed perfectly it will ruin the image. It is so much harder to edit images that are underexposed with wrong colour balance.

I offer 1:1 sessions in my studio in Abu Dhabi and group workshops in the UK hosted by Newborn Baby Posing. We aim to have 3 babies attend the session, so I can demonstrate the different poses and handling of the baby. The students are able to take their own images that they can edit themselves. I have never been comfortable for the students to handle the babies, as I am completely responsible for the safety in the studio. Most of the students I will have just met for the first time,  I have not had the opportunity to gain the confidence to let them handle the newborn or pose them.

However, I am so excited to have a new tool to my teaching sessions, The Stand In Baby. I first saw them online as a very new product just over a year ago and I knew this was going to be an incredible addition to the newborn photography industry. I wish 5 years ago they were available, for me to practice different poses and angles, in preparation for a session. The students will now be able to use the stand in baby for the last hour to demonstrate to me what they have learnt throughout the day.

For more information regarding 1:1 teaching sessions contact Catherine jilliangreenhillphotography@gmail.com for the UK workshops contact Sandra or Sarah sales@newbornbabyposing.co.uk

Dubai Newborn Photographer | Baby Leo

As an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer I have had the pleasure of capturing so many beautiful babies in 2016. This year we have definitely had more baby boys coming to the studio than baby girls. I have been mainly specialising in newborns now for 3 years which is my passion and I love being able to capture the first few weeks of their lives. They change so much in such a short time to have this stage documented for the families makes me very happy.

I have had so many amazing sessions this year, some have been a bit more difficult than others. Being challenged in my opinion is good and being experienced I now know how to adapt the session to still ensure the clients receive a gallery they will treasure. As a photographer we will have a session plan and sometimes that plan will go smoothly. Other times we need to change the flow if the baby isn’t happy in a certain prop or position. Having photographed hundreds of babies I can usually tell quite quickly what helps to keep them calm and happy. If the baby isn’t breast fead then I look after and handle the baby throughout the session with the aid of Catherine, my lovely assistant. For some parents this is a relief as they are so tired they can just sit back relax and watch the session. For other parents I understand it can be a nervous time and are so happy to have their baby in their arms again. Even though they are nervous, just watching for a short time, how we handle the baby and the care we take on safety quickly reassures them.

Baby Leo was utterly gorgeous and we loved meeting his parents. I loved the grey and mint they chose for their session. I was also able to use a new little bed from Kelley Ryden and Tracy Raver

Dubai Baby Photographer | Baby Kenny

As a Dubai baby photographer many clients will travel to my studio in Abu Dhabi. Just before the holidays I was able to capture the first few weeks of baby Kenny for his lovely parents. Our location is about 45 minutes from Dubai so is very accessible. The only advice we give to the clients who travel is that before the journey try and keep the baby awake for about an hour. More than likely he will fall asleep during the drive but not to worry. The baby will then need a good feed when they arrive in the studio, before we can begin the session. If there are siblings, we totally understand that they too will make the same journey. We only ask that another family member also comes to keep the older child entertained. There are parks and restaurants walking distance for the cooler months and there is also room outside the studio to play.

I loved using the green in Kenny’s session it is one of my favourite colours but is seldom chosen. I think it worked really well for his session. There was a bit of a transport theme on the day. We used the aeroplane and the boat both from Mr & Mrs and Co. The adorable suitcase also made an appearance. I purchased this little prop from a home store here in Abu Dhabi. When searching shops you never know what little gem you might find. From experience I now know the perfect size props that will fit most babies. Kenny was definitely a fan of being wrapped, if the baby is a little unsettled, wrapping them makes them feel more secure and cosy. My favourite mohair wraps are from Pastelowe Sny and are shipped from Poland. I think I have virtually every colour.

Please enjoy some of Kenny’s gallery xx
