Have you ever thought about doing an in-home family photoshoot in Dubai and then given up, thinking your home is too small or doesn’t have designer furnishings or the light is too low, etc?
Honestly, the only thing that really matters is that you and your loved ones are living in it and you call it home. Here are some questions you can ask yourself when you are not sure if an in-home session would be suitable for you or not:
Do you have windows, and natural light coming into at least one or two rooms in your home?
Would you be ok with moving around a few things during our photoshoot if required? This could include a center table, clutter on a bedside table, wires etc.
Do you have a bed, sofa, chairs, etc where I can position you all for photos?
Do you trust me to guide you around the house/apartment for the best possible photographs?
Are you willing to have photos of your family in the space you currently call home?
If you said yes to all of the above then yes, an in-home family photoshoot would be perfect for you! (Head over here to see photos from a session where the apartment was not very bright at all but we managed to get beautiful photographs by staying next to the windows. Or here to see photos from a session where the rooms we were shooting in were not very big but that didn’t stop us!).
The only thing I would ask you to do is a general cleanup of the house (Urban Company is a great app for scheduling a one-time clean-up service before the photoshoot). If there’s still anything that needs to be tucked behind a sofa or hidden under the bed for a particular photo, I’ll let you know!
So, if you’re excited to get a record of your family in your current home, tell me all about it here and we can set up a time for a photoshoot.
Hey, I'm Scheherazade Shahid and I am a licensed family, maternity and newborn photographer based in Dubai. I love adventure, scary rides and taking photos of little humans. My lifelong wish is to jump out of an airplane with a parachute on my back but alas I still need to loose a couple of pounds to be able to qualify for that ride 😭
