In December I had another returning client come for their adorable baby boys newborn session. As a Dubai newborn photography specialist, one of the best parts of my job is to watch lovely families grow. Having been a photographer in the UAE now for nearly seven years, lots of my past clients are now having baby number three. Before the day of the session, I love to go back to their previous sessions to view the images I captured. I feel my style has always stayed relatively the same, soft, light and colorful. The changes I make are poses, angles and props. As a Dubai newborn photography specialist it is important to always evaluate your own work. Our biggest critics are always ourselves.
For baby Alexander’s session we used the very popular blue, beige and whites that always look amazing in the finished gallery. The adorable boat and plane from Mr & Mrs and Co was a favorite for his lovely parents and Alexander was pretty happy to be posed in them. One of my favorite props to use is the little wooden bed from the Original Photoblocks. It works extremely well in my workflow. It is always used in the first 20 minutes of my session, after posing them wrapped. In the 3 different set ups the baby is given time to go into a deep sleep, feeling cosy with being swaddled and is disturbed a very small amount.
After I finish with the prop set ups I then move onto posing on the beanbag. I love this part of the session, and try to be creative using different wraps for their textures and colours. Each baby is different, and a pose very comfortable and relaxed for one baby may not be the case for another. I always allow the baby to dictate what they are happy with. Baby Alexander was settled in all the basic poses and my absolute favorite from his session is the one on his back swaddled.
