Maternity/Family Photo Shoot

In November I was browsing through my Facebook feed when I saw a sponsored ad from a photo studio in Dubai. The studio was looking for pregnant women and families with newborns, and/or young children to take part in a free workshop. Interested models were asked to send an email stating their availability and how they were a good fit for the workshop. Below is my email to them and their response to me.


My family and I are interested in participating in a photo shoot on either the 13th or 14th of this month. I am 34 weeks pregnant and I have a 1, 2, and 4 year old.

Dear Aisha,

Congratulations! You have been selected out of about 165 applications to be one of the 4 maternity models for our Maternity shoot workshop! We are so excited about your joining us.

 How could they have denied us?!?

Prior to this pregnancy I didn’t have a desire to take professional maternity photos. I just wasn’t sure about what would become of them when I was no longer pregnant. I must admit, however, that I am blissfully nostalgic when looking at these and so happy that we were able to take them.

Unfortunately, we didn’t receive the photos until a week before Daniel was born so we aren’t able to do much with them now but I wanted to share some of them with all of you.
