Mystical dunes people, are you ready for the most gorgeous family session? Yes, I now call myself a Dubai family photographer. We will be returning to steamy Dubai early June this year! Would love to capture your special moments with the little ones, book your sunrise session here.
ABOUT THE STYLE
Oh my favourite topic to bring up! This is not a secret at all. I had a vision of the look, feel, colour and of course the time of day. Shireen’s (Mum) eyes sparkled when we put everything together. Blush and dreamy feels for the win! The kiddies are girly as they come, they were in barbie dress-up heaven. Oh and don’t forget to dress papa bear. A white shirt is always so beautiful and handsome on a man, so that one was easy.
To master the mystical feels I was going for it had to be sunrise.
ABOUT THE SESSION
This was such an incredible experience to drive past the Dubai dunes bright and early looking for the perfect location. But first breakfast. Always breakfast! Right? We made a little fire in the middle of nowhere (yes you can do that, so not in the Uk) and had bacon buns and coffee watching the sunrise peak. I had the privilege to photograph a family that’s so close to my heart. This was actually our 3rd session together, so smiles were flowing! What a joy it is taking pictures of 3 stunning sisters so close to mamma. It felt effortless, you can see the bond they all have. It’s hasn’t been the easiest journey to move from London to Dubai, but the Le Roux’s make every obstacle an adventure.
YES, you heard right, me and my partner in all things FUN will be travel photographers in South Africa and Bali the next 6 months! Life is an adventure and boy I’m definitely not meant to live in one place. Although London has been so good to me in many many wonderful ways. It’s time to spread the wings and fly baby, literally.
Why you may ask and where exactly?
First stop | Durban 10-15 November
I will be jetting off to Durbs for the very first time to photograph a beautiful destination wedding on a farm, think boho chic! I will be here for two days and have some spots open for shoots, so get in touch people!
Joburg + Pretoria | 15-20 November
This will be a fantastic time to book in some shoots as I have 3 dates open for availability! Let’s play and have fun. I promise not to bring the London rain with me!
20 November – 3 January | Cape Town
Oh boy this is a goodie! Some time with the family over Christmas and New year but SO MANY open slots for some creative content to be created. As a photographer I’m so lucky to be able to work wherever I go. Cape Town is such a gem and photogenic as it comes. I have many plans for styled shoots and open to family and lifestyle photography, book your session soon to avoid disappointment, I would love to capture sweet, sweet moments while I’m there and make the absolute best of my trip.
3 January – 3 April | Bali + Philippines
This was not easy people. My husband is an accountant, so convincing my realist of a man was hard work. It took some planning, some home cookin’ and of course a lot of you tube videos to get him on board. At the end of the day we will never look back and say we shouldn’t have done that. It’s always been such a big dream of mine to travel the world and meet different people. I’m working on my newest project Nkima On Style where I will share loads of my traveling images and of course blog all about it! Aka. I’ll be a lifestyle / travel blogger. FUN RIGHT!
The first two months we will be working as freelancers in Bali and open for business! I will be miss trigger-happy and my boo will be working on his trading. The 3rd month we will set of to the Philippines for our last month of FREEDOM, as I like to say. I feel like this is the time in our lives to take chances. Be totally happy with your surroundings and take it all in, experiences is the best education.
Have I sold you on it yet? Hahaha. Because our minds are set.
