FAQ – Maternity baby child family pictures Victoria


When is it best to come in for a maternity session?

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible in your maternity session. These sessions are usually booked when you are between 32-36 weeks. An outdoor session in the Al Ain desert or an indoor session in the studio in Al Ain or Dubai are scheduled to capture this special time.


Can other family members come too?

Absolutely! This is an exciting time for your whole family and we would love to include them as well♥


What should I wear? 

Please dress in something that is comfortable. I suggest going with a solid color and of course accessories can be added in. For ideas and inspiration, please visit our What to Wear : Maternity board here on Pinterest.




How do I schedule a newborn session?

Parents are encouraged to reserve their Victoria BC newborn baby photography / picture session before baby is born. Babies are best photographed between 5-10 days when they are the sleepiest, so booking early ensures you a spot on our calendar. Once your session in reserved we will pencil your due date in. When baby arrives, we will touch base and confirm your session date. Sessions usually take place on weekday mornings around 10am. Photographing baby at this age also helps us achieve those curly newborn poses that you adore. Safety is our first concern and there is always someone watching carefully over baby.


How long is the session?

Typically a newborn session can take between 2-3 hours. We always follow baby’s lead allowing for time for feeding and snuggling. Helpful suggestions are included in the newborn information package which are sent to you once the session is booked.


Do I need to bring along blankets?

Everything is provided for your session including blankets, wraps, bonnets, headbands and props. If you have something special that you would like to incorporate you are welcome to bring it along.


Do you take pictures of the family as well?

Yes! We absolutely love to photograph baby with their sibling/s and parents. Information will be sent on the best time for siblings to join in:)


What should we wear for the family portraits?

Soft and neutral colors help to keep the focus on baby.




What age is best to bring an older baby in?

Any age is lovely to capture but an older baby session is best done when baby can sit (~6 months). One year old sessions are also very popular and I am happy to celebrate with you in the studio with a cake smash! All other ages are welcome of course;)


What should my child wear for the session?

I encourage little ones to wear soft neutral colors. This keeps all the focus on their gorgeous little personalities and will give a more timeless feel. For ideas and inspiration, please visit our What to Wear : Child board here  or What to Wear : Baby board here on Pinterest.




How do I schedule a desert session?

Desert photography sessions in Al Ain take place between November and early April. There are limited sessions per month which fill up quickly so book your session ahead of time to ensure your spot.


How long is the session?

Desert sessions usually take about one-and-a-half hours at sunset or sunrise.


What should we wear for the family desert session?

I do encourage clients to wear coordinating colors. Not matching per se, but clothes that flow nicely together keeping in mind the desert backdrop. For ideas and inspiration, please visit our What to Wear : Family board here on Pinterest.
