HES: A Family Portrait

It started end of last year when I received a Facebook message from Hana asking if I could shoot her baby shower, as well as her pregnancy and new born shots! I didn't think twice and immediately agreed. I was super excited about maternity shots as they were a whole new world for me, and had room for a lot of creativity!

Hana is an extremely open and outgoing Emirati lady, married to Eric who is a fluent Arabic speaking American! I was shocked when I first met him and heard him utter this perfect Emirati accent - something I couldn't master even after living in the UAE for the past 23 years!

Later, I learned that they're avid campers, big lovers of nature and had a soft spot for deserts! And this was our major inspiration for the outdoor maternity shots that took place in one of the desert spots, outside Dubai, that Eric seemed to navigate so well.

Perfect dunes, lone trees and beautiful light made this photoshoot very unique.
A week after our shoot, little baby Sedra came into this world. A few weeks to her delivery, I was there to photoshoot this beautiful gift.

And last week, Hana called up to check if we could do one more family shoot. Although the humidity of the day restricted the time that we spent on the shoot, yet we had a blast with cute Sedra who is now 9 months old. We were not short of laughter or adorable baby reactions in Sedra's presence :)

I'm truly grateful that I got to document some of this family's biggest moments, that they allowed me to have a hand in making such beautiful times last through my photography.

Stay inspired :)
