As a Dubai maternity photographer, the aim was to weave elements of the Old Masters' aesthetic into this modern maternity photoshoot, capturing the subject's strength, joy, and the sweet anticipation of motherhood.

The internationally recognized portrait captures more than a pose; it encapsulates a defining moment in her journey towards motherhood. The resulting image is not just a testament to the universally profound experience of impending motherhood, but a personal narrative captured through the lens during a memorable maternity photoshoot.

When I take phots of children, I have the opportunity to capture authentic moments as they unfold, without staging scenes or "getting into character." My goal is to allow my subjects to express themselves in an honest, natural way.75th Collection
Lighting is what gives a photo its depth, dimension, and mood. It's what makes it more than just a flat picture: it gives it life. And the best way to get that kind of lighting is to use natural light—and in particular, indirect natural light.75th Collection
Photo portraits are a sort of theatrical magic.
The trick is to recognize that you are not just making a photograph, but you're also making a character and a story. The photographer is the director, the subject is an actor, and the audience is the viewer.
Portraits are about the person in front of the camera, which is why I love doing them. A photo can tell you a story about a person, but a portrait can let you see who that person really is. It's like saying "I'm proud of who I am," and showing the world who they are.74th Collection

A good portrait should be able to tell the story of a subject, and help the viewer understand what it's like to be inside that person's mind. Whether you're the photographer or the model, understanding how light works will help you achieve that goal.72nd Collection
As the saying goes, the eyes are the window to the soul. It's the eyes, more than any other part of the image, which convey, captivate and make us feel a connection with the model and this portrait of Rita shows just that.71st Collection
Portraiture as an art form goes back at least to ancient Egypt about 5,000 years ago. Before the invention of photography, a painted, sculpted, or drawn portrait was the only way to record the appearance of someone. I look for inspiration in Old Masters paintings to light modern subjects using natural light.71st Collection
I shot this portrait of Zhenya at the end of a mother-and-daughter photoshoot. We hadn't planned a solo portrait but when you see a good photo opportunity you just capture it. I love the light in this picture. My work is inspired by Renaissance and Rembrandt paintings. Often my lighting style reflects this.69th Collection
In this portrait I wanted an Old Masters vibe with a modern day subject. My photography is inspired by Renaissance and Rembrandt paintings. The lighting and editing style I use will often reflect that look as in this photo of Margo in Dubai.69th Collection
The important thing to remember is that people want photos that will empower them, portraits that they and their entire community will love.
In order to do that, the photos must show both beauty and personality. They must tell a story and evoke emotion. And it's OK that most people aren’t professional models and are not comfortable in front of the camera. With this understanding and a bit of guidance on the part of the photographer, a photoshoot can feel comfortable and natural, empowering the subject to show their true self. That's what makes the portrait look natural and real. It's magic.
How can I achieve the painterly look? That's one of the questions I hear often. For me, it starts with light. Natural light. In this portrait a mid-sized window gives a soft, indirect light to the model's face. It helps create shadows from the side that create a sense of painterly depth and dimension.66th Collection
