The Beautiful Arabian Desert
I think that the location in the Abu Dhabi desert that I use for family sessions might be one of my favourite spots on the planet.
If you'd like to see how a session looks and feels with me, please see below some highlights from a magical session I did very recently before the weather got too hot.
How does a desert session work? It's simple. Just the same as any other session with me. We explore this little patch of the desert with the kids in the driving seat. I always follow their lead. We mess around, have a laugh together, nothing is too staged or contrived. I dedicate a slice of the session to some close up cuddly shots, which kids usually love as they use up a lot of energy in the desert and it gives them a chance to recharge.
The feedback I get from clients after a desert session is that it is such a fun adventure and not at all as you'd imagine a "traditional" photoshoot to be like. A client recently commented: "Who knew that a photoshoot could be so much fun!" This is music to my ears and what I strive for in every shoot I do.
I'm taking bookings for desert sessions for the end of October onwards. Please get in touch for more information.
