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.
