Abu Dhabi Baby Photography | Baby Ivy’s mini session

We provide mini sessions for Abu Dhabi baby photography in my studio. The babies must be less than 3 weeks old. It has been 2 years now since I began the shorter sessions. I was slightly apprehensive how they would work, but after my first one I knew immediately I would love them. We still get asked frequently, what if the baby doesn’t settle? As long as the parents follow all the information we give them regarding preparation before a session, 99.9% of the time they are a huge success. If it turns out the baby will not sleep then we take lots of lovely awake images. In the 2 years it has only happened once and that baby was actually 4 weeks old. A photographers work I really love who does natural style sessions perfectly is Samantha D. Photography, newborn photographer near to Chester, Cheshire.

The mini session will last approximately 1 hour, so it is extremely important the baby is given a big feed before they arrive at the studio. We will aim to do my usual poses on the rugs, 2 props and the basic poses on the beanbag. There will be no family photographs. If this is important to the parents we advice they have a full session and choose one of the packages. They will receive 10 digital images with the mini session and a 6×4″ print of each image. A 8×10″ complimentary print of their favourite picture will be also be provided.

It is important the parents choose the colours and 2 props they would like to be used on the day. Ivy’s lovely mum gave me some tips on which colours to avoid but then gave me free reign to style her session. I loved the colours we used, they compliment each other perfectly and leave the final images looking fresh and crisp. We were also able to use one of the new rugs from the amazing Luneberry. Her floakati’s are the best quality, I love them so much I now have them in virtually every colour.

Abu Dhabi Newborn Photographer | Baby Jamie

As an Abu Dhabi newborn photographer, I was able to capture the first few weeks of my amazing assistant, Catherine’s, baby boy. 4 years ago when my business began to accelerate I found that I could not keep control of everything while also having small children. I was constantly working past midnight with little time off. I realised quite quickly I needed help. I had a lot of interest when I advertised for the position, but when I asked Catherine to come and take part in a twin session and I saw how confident she was with babies I knew then she was going to make a great addition to my little business.

Catherine’s assists me on every newborn session. I find this means the parents can relax and watch from the comfort of our sofa. Often one or both of them will fall asleep. As my assistant she is there to observe the baby at all times. Most of the time she is just inches away from the baby or will have a  hand on the baby. She will then be edited out later in photoshop. Clients will often comment how amazing it is to watch us work. She knows my next move and what I am thinking without me even having to say anything.

One of the main areas of the business I found overwhelming was emails and phone calls. I found I was not able to concentrate on editing due to being disturbed frequently. Catherine is the main contact clients will have until the day of the session. So she basically looks after my work life and keeps me completely sane. I recommend that all photographers budget for a Catherine.

To be able to do this session for her was a pleasure and after being on maternity leave for a few months it was so nice to have her assisting her own gorgeous baby. I even let her pick her own colours and props.

Enjoy Jamie’s session xx

Abu Dhabi Newborn Photography | Baby Mia

What a very beautiful baby girl this was during another Abu Dhabi newborn photography session. I had the absolute pleasure to photograph her big brother when he was a newborn at 4 days old. Baby Mia made mine and Catherine’s job very easy during this session.

With every session in my studio, I generally always do the same work flow, unless the baby has other ideas. During Mia’s session we began with potato sack pose. I find this set up extremely helpful to settle the baby. It is also important to do first as the baby is swaddled with several wraps so you do not want them to over heat. This pose for me is the one the babies always love. From this I move them on to their back wrapped, adding and removing accessories. One of my favourite vendors for girls accessories is Created by Carli.

In a full session we aim to use 4 props, so before the beanbag poses I concentrate on the prop set ups. I love the props Mia’s parents chose. One of my oldest props is the sweet little pram from JD Vintage Props. The first pose that I do on the beanbag is the side lying pose , from there I can transition into most of the basic poses without disturbing the baby too much.

Some time is saved at the end of the session to do family pictures if wanted by the parents. We advise any siblings to come to the session for the last 30 minutes as it can be a little boring to be waiting for the whole 3 hours. If the clients live too far away then there are facilities close by to keep the sibling entertained with another family member or friend. Mia’s brother, Bobby, did an amazing job at holding her and Catherine is always close by to give a helping hand.

Abu Dhabi Baby Photography | Baby Marko

What a pleasure to have returning clients come for their Abu Dhabi baby photography session. I have photographed this beautiful family several times and each time it is an honour. When the parents choose you for future sessions, as a photographer, it makes you extremely happy they loved their images so much they keep returning.

I enjoyed baby Marko’s session a lot. Some of my favourite props were used in the session. Including the very sweet deck chair from Woodsy Wonder. Any session with a boy means we get to use the very popular aeroplane and he made the very adorable wooden bed from the Original Photo blocks look extra adorable. If you are a future client I recommend you follow my Facebook page or Instagram for inspiration for your upcoming session.

Waiting for the parents colour scheme always makes me excited. Marko’s lovely mummy chose well. When I style the sessions in the morning before the baby arrives, I will decide what colours should work well together. I adore layering different shades of colours, for example darker greys with lighter grey. Using the accessories like the wraps and hats help to achieve this. If you follow my work you will see how much I adore wrapping the babies. I feel that it makes the babies feel warm and secure so makes them more settled. Using the different textures inspire me. My favourite wraps, are mohair and stretch knit fabrics.

The reaction when clients receive their gallery every time makes my heart happy. When they have to choose their favourite image for the complimentary print, it generally surprises me, as it is very rare we choose the same.

Dubai Newborn Photographer | Baby Cian

As a Dubai newborn photographer I was able to capture this very adorable baby boy. He was our first session after the summer holiday break. Even though my studio is based in Abu Dhabi 40% of our clients do make the small journey on the Sheik Zayed road. For more information regarding location you can contact my assistant Catherine at jilliangreenhillphotography@gmail.com

Before any newborn session we request the parents to help style the session. I feel this is extremely important to ensure the clients fall in love with their gallery. During a full session we aim to use four props, therefore we ask the clients to choose their favourite that they have seen us use before. The colours through the session is also determined by the parents. They may have a particular colour scheme in their home that they would like us to use. I advise to stick to 2 main colours alongside natural tones.

For Cian’s session we used light blues and whites and the very popular aeroplane was a must. This and the adorable boat was purchased from Mr and Mrs and Co. I update my props all the time so it’s great when I get to choose some of the props for the session too. Knowing the babies weight helps to decide which props we can and cannot use.

Even though baby Cian was a little over the ideal age to photograph a newborn, he was incredible. His lovely parents had followed the preparation advice which usually ensures a successful session. There are little tips, as a Dubai newborn photographer, I give in the welcome pack that Catherine gives all parents prior to the day of the shoot. If a baby is unsettled in some of the props or poses then we always adjust the session to meet their needs.

Enjoy some of Cian’s final images xx
