There are moments in a new life that are both breathtaking and profound. They’re called ‘Firsts’. First steps. First birthday. First day at school.We’d love to help you catch every magical first in your family’s journey.
We believe it’s important to have a record of the special times when families gather. We’ll help you create a treasure chest of memories.
Want a shoot with a difference? Brenda at Baby Angels photography specialises in underwater photography for kids – showing children expressing their freedom and showing off their aquatic moves! All that Branka needs is the use of a private pool (so that it’s exclusive to the shoot – a compound pool is fine), no chlorine added on the day of photography and a few little water babies eager to show their underwater moves! This option is also fab for kids who are likely to play-up if asked to pose and say ‘cheese’ and for little water babies who’ll forget that there’s a camera being pointed at them. Branka will get into the water with her little subjects, helping them feel at ease and giving them confidence to jump and splash about – and if you want to get creative with clothes and props then anything’s possible (your kids don’t have to be in swimwear). Children of any age can participate. That said, the ideal starting age is around 18 months, so the child can be on their own inside the pool without support. The older they are – from around 3 years onwards – the more the variety of shots including underwater diving and other stunts!
Monica lives in Dubai with her husband Anil and two gorgeous children: Tavishi, 8.5 years old and Pravit, aged 5.

You can guarantee natural smiles and genuine reactions from Monica (just check out her latest Sassy Mama shoot to see for yourselves). Monica was born and raised in India and has been living the expat life for the last 12 years. She’s a citizen of the world, having lived in the USA, Malaysia, UK and now Dubai. She’s been a family photographer for 4 years now and absolutely loves every minute!

Louise is rarely seen without her camera – a British food photographer, wedding and portrait photographer and videographer, plus a mama of two girls and a former graphic designer and art director, based right here in Dubai. She is passionate about communicating ideas through a visual language and is super creative to boot.

A passionate cook, she’s also great at capturing those magic kitchen moments if you want to get your whole gang involved in a pancake making shoot one morning!

Claire is our mega-talented Sassy Mama photographer whose love of photography started aged fourteen, with an Olympus OM1 camera and a darkroom in her parent’s cellar. Claire now runs Claire Barlow Photography where she takes natural-light portraits that capture families and newborns in a playful and relaxed way – she is mega talented at creating the cutest way of framing images (we love her collages and framed photo-made initials). Claire’s fave portraits are spontaneous and relaxed and she always tries to include a good mix of playful shots, individual portraits and some of those enchanting detail shots that can be so evocative – often using the stunning desert surrounding our city as her studio. Her previous work experience includes being a stylist and a writer for interiors magazines (and yes, her home is gorgeous) and she has 3 little ones of 5 and under so completely understands how to connect with a tantrum-ing toddler!
Renae Gard is a super talented photographer, with a huge focus on family life (and she’s recently joined the rest of our Sassy photographers so watch out for some of her shoots soon!). Her photography specialises in the fine art of posed newborn photography, maternity sessions, and all those special milestone baby moments. Her adorable snaps of 1st birthdays (and, of course, the epic cake smash) are definitely images to pop on the mantlepiece. Photographing babies, from bump up to around 15 months in a studio setting at her gorgeous Jumeirah home. Newborns are Renae’s speciality and she’s spent the last couple of years honing her craft (basically hanging around cute little bundles of joy – heavenly) and can style and pose your precious little one with the utmost safety and care. Sessions are meticulously planned and styled with your personal colour preferences in mind and each image is personally and creatively edited, resulting in a collection of beautiful images for you to treasure forever. Renae says that newborn sessions should ideally take place before baby is 2 weeks old to capture those sleepy curled up poses! And even tired mamas should participate – it’s all part of those special first few days!

What Are the Differences Between On-Location and Studio Photo Shoots?
Jodi is renowned for creating a cosy and calm atmosphere for little ones – keeping them relaxed and happy (perfect for mamas of very young kids!). When she’s not busy with babies, Jodi is running around after toddlers – as she says ‘I shoot all my sessions with prime lenses (they don’t zoom). I have to do the zooming with my legs and it can be a challenge at times but I love the results!’. Jodi’s ‘cake smash’ and follow-on ‘bubble bath’ images are simply adorable (makes us want more kiddos just to do this!) and we love her use of props – one of our faves is the organic curly wool that makes teeny newborns look like they’re in a little nest. Adorable.

Plenty of mamas rave about Carrie’s work, and for good reason – her photos are bathed in an almost ethereal light (she specialises in outdoor shoots) that capture the beauty of the surroundings as much as of the families in front of the lens. And the great thing? Carrie has only recently turned a hobby into something a little a lot more, so she’s very affordable. A flick through her Rayleighlight Facebook page will show some of the gorgeous photoshoots she’s completed – from bumps to babes, families to grandparents, and all in a variety of settings. And Carrie’s other super-power? She’s a mama of 4 – so not only does she understand how to get the kiddos to listen and have fun, but she also totally gets it if you’re having ‘one of those days!’.
