A peek into a Saadiyat Beach gallery

What does a gallery look like if you book one of my beach sessions?

Well there's no straightforward answer as it depends to some extent on the ages of the children. However, for each family photography session, I try to incorporate some active and playful images with some more soulful and connection driven images.

The playful images are very much driven by the kids! Yes, as with most things in life, the kids take the reins and we let them be children. I think this is important as this is where we are able to capture really authentic images where their personalities can shine through.

However, as you may have noticed from my gallery, I am a huge lover of capturing soulful moments. These usually take place towards the end of the session when the light is moodier and the kids even moodier.... Ooops, did I say that?! What I meant was when the kids have expended their energy sufficiently and are perhaps in more of a cuddle mood.

I now include a slideshow for each of my families, which contains a curated gallery of images. I love spending time on this and matching music with the mood of the session. The great thing about these slideshows is that my families are able to download and keep them as an additional memory of their time together in Abu Dhabi.

A few weeks ago, I met with this lovely family. They have kindly allowed me to share their gallery so that you can get a feel for what we aim to capture in a beach session.

SLIDESHOW (2 minutes):

2018 has so far been fantastically busy for me and my photography business, which I am so grateful for. However, I only have 3 spaces left for outdoor sessions before the summer. By way of reminder, please get in touch at least a couple of months before you would like the session, if at all possible.

If you'd like to know more, please get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.

Karen xoxo
