Tea Party at Sponthiphoria

As you can imagine by my website, I love everything that is pink, sweet & vintage.

So I was over the moon to get to photograph this cute Afternoon Tea session, in one of my favourite places in Dubai – Spontiphoria Boutique & Cafe.

An afternoon tea with the girls is always a good idea! Specially when you get pampered first, and have your hair done! After you can chitchat and enjoy all the details. Beautiful cakes, delicate wooden toppers and cute table decoration.  All complimented by vintage books, fresh flowers and the most beautiful mix of crockery!

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed spending an afternoon in this hidden gem of Dubai <3

Baby Shower – Rio`s Boho Baby

A Bohemian Baby Shower, that looked like a real blue dream out of a magazine, in Dubai.

I had the pleasure to photograph Rio`s baby shower, founder of the renamed Dubai wedding blog,  “Bride Club ME”.

Every single aspect of the day was carefully thought by the mummy to be. She used some of her amazing vendors to bring this beauty come to reality. Its was an amazing day, filled with pretty details, laugher, friends and love <3

Vintage home styled shoot

I love pink; I love everything that is cute with a touch of vintage! And one of my passions (apart from photography), is baking. So this vintage styled shoot is everything I love. I photographed it one afternoon with the help from my friends, at my home. And I just love the final result. All the photos have the dreamy soft feeling, with a romantic feminine touch.

Thank you for the lovely team

Family shoot – Megan & Family

I love Dubai and its desert! And there is no better way to enjoy it than with a gorgeous family! Megan is a beautiful lady expecting baby number two! She looks happy and glowing! Fiona is the cutest, funniest little thing and just turned 3! The entire photo session she didn`t stop laughing and playing and running around after daddy! Hope you enjoy the magic sunset and the images <3

New born announcement – Baby hella

I always few happy to photograph newborns! Meet baby Hella! This session was filled of joy, and there was such a happy atmosphere as the new baby had just arrived!  Parents and grandparents together, always a lovely moment!New born sessions usually take place on the first 10 days of the baby life, and the best place to take it it is the comfort zone of the baby`s home!

Pregnancy shoot – Christmas present

This post is a really special one! A beautiful family of 3, expecting another baby boy! A present for Christmas time! Anamaria has the prettiest smile! She looks so stunning on her 7th month of pregnancy… waiting on Antonio! Pedro & Sofia didn`t stop playing the entire session! What a joy to photograph a beautiful happy family! This shoot was made at the iconic Palm Jumeirah Park, where Sofia always spends her afternoons playing with mummy and daddy! And the cherry on the top, was the Christmas hat to celebrate the season!

Baby shower – Sheron

A beautiful mummy to be that is turning 30th! A beautiful baby girl on the way called Natalie. That was the pink and gold Birthday baby shower that I had the pleasure to photograph! The deco was amazing and very carefully done. All the small details, with everything that the mummy loved ( pink, gold, champagne, the most amazing Brazilian sweets table), made this party a hit!

Mini-wedding styled shoot

This is a lovely project I had the pleasure to photograph. A mini-wedding styled shoot that was created using many delicate pieces, soft cream colours, natural materials and lovely sweets and cakes. The wooden pieces bring a natural feeling to the project, as the refined sweets and cake bring a more formal touch.The final result is a classic wedding that would make any bride to be really proud and happy.

Special thanks to the amazing team
