Here are the stories of the families I get to capture...
Wow! So many mamas came to Ana Piera's most recent Breakfast, Bumps & Babies event that she had to change locations to accommodate them and their sweet bubbas. The new location, Baker's Kitchen, was a perfect fit: good food, yummy lattes and so much space for kids to play whilst mums chatted away and listened to Ana's very special guest Dr. Emma Adsuar Gómez, specialist in Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Let's not forget that Katie from @katiejane_dubai organized fun activities for mums and babies, Tracey from @mummyista offered mums a chance to buy beautiful clothes, a beautiful array of baby clothes and accessories was also on display by @lapetiteh.
Oh and did I mention that we left with a bag with a delicious loaf of Baker's Kitchen Bread and a succulent cookie from @nourinthekitchen?
And obviously I was there to snap pictures of it all!
Don't miss Ana's next event...follow is on Instagram to get the details as soon as it is announced @hello_petit_bebe and @thedancingbirth
Another fun Breakfast, Bumps and Babies morning at Tania's Teahouse hosted by the amazing Doula and Hypnobirthing instructor Ana Piera! I am lucky to have met this wonderful woman last year and to be invited to attend her events. I get to meet all these sweet babies and their beautiful mamas! Everyone has such a wonderful time at this monthly event, myself included :)
I hope you enjoy the photos ladies!
P.S. Ana's mamas get a discount to all my packages. Send me an email to inquire if interested in capturing your babies/toddlers/family/birth! firstname.lastname@example.org
Only one brave mum would brave the Dubai summer temperature and ask for a beach maternity shoot: meet Asmik! I was sceptic...a pregnant mum in this heat for over 2 hours? Well...I am happy I agreed to melt in the heat to get some really sweet photos of her, her husband and the beautiful bump! Asmik's shoot was fun and turned out beautifully! (I must say I was relieved my lens did not fog up with the humidity!!)
Check out some of the pictures below!
A little more than a month ago I was in Al Zahra hospital with this amazing couple from Brazil. The mum really wanted a "natural birth". She labored the whole day...showing us how strong she is!! Her husband and I were impressed at how she stayed so focused and managed the contractions for hours on end. At 8pm she got the news that she would have to get a C-section. It was heartbreaking as we knew how much she wanted to birth this baby on her own. But again she impressed us by taking the news with such grace. At 10PM sharp she was taken to the operation room...and I had the chance to meet baby C the next morning!
Here is her Birth Film and some of the shots I took...
I am so excited to announce that I have added a new package to my portfolio! I have such an amazing and fun time taking these beautiful shots...and how nice in times of high Dubai heat to be sitting in a lovely bath!
Pregnant women, newborns, toddlers,...or even just you for a sexy boudoir style Milk Bath (fathers day is just around the corner!) Milk Baths are beautiful and fun for all!
Check out the beautiful session I took of a mama to be...!
A one hour session with 10 beautifully edited images is 1000aed. The session takes place in your home (or maybe a friends home if you do not have a bath!). I provide a bouquet of flowers and the Milk needed :)
The first 3 mums that sign up for one will get 100aed off! :)
Contact me for more info!
Yay! After Eid I will be offering Milk Bath Sessions to babies, expecting mums and toddlers! I LOVED having my baby Romy in her milk bath session 2 years ago and have decided to add this as a few of you have inquired about it :)
The first 3 mums to sign up for a session will also get a little something extra! :) Stay tuned...!
In the meantime here are a few "Behind the scenes" iPhone photos of my little baby during her shoot!
A few weeks ago I did a Photo & Film shoot with such a sweet family. Little A was just about a month old and oh my goodness he was just SO cute! And the parents...so in love it is palpable in the film! I kept smiling while editing this Film! I must say that I LOVE filming families like this...!
A few weeks ago Mireille won a free family film with my at the Mini+Me event organized by Cloudhoods (download this app if you are a Dubai based mama and have not yet signed up!!).
How lucky was I that this amazing mama won!? This family is so sweet and fun! I loved spending a few hours with them and making this film for them.
Thank you Mireille & Johnny for allowing me to capture these moments. Your little Kaylee is such an amazing little girl! I really enjoyed my time spent with you!
(oh and that Pomdelapom bathing suit is just A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!)
What a busy few weeks! 2 Births, a few Mama + Me sessions, events and I am working on 2 new packages...!
Keep your eyes peeled for new beautiful images, sweet films and the new offers!
I was lucky to be able to shoot at a beautiful event last week. Bravo Nancy & Lara at Cloudhoods it really was beautiful! I was also honored to be with some really stylish brands and listen to very informational talks from wonderful speakers.
Here are the photos of the beautiful Mamas and their mini me's! Head over to www.cloudhoods.com for more photos of the event!
