Dinkyheart Photography

Posted on: April 18th, 2015 by Carolyn 1 Comment

We are going to end the the weekend by introducing you to Lianne from Dinkyheart Photography.  Many of you may already know of Lianne as she is a huge fan of many Dubai families.  What better way to do this than with one of her maternity shoots.   I am sure there are a few mums-to-be who debate over whether or not they should have maternity photos but every time I receive one of these shoots , I am reminded about how it really is a time that is quite fleeting and very unique and a time I personally feel needs to be captured and treasured.

A word from Lianne:

I absolutely adore these elegant images of Jane, which were taken just a few days before her due date. I don’t usually do maternity sessions so late on, but Jane, who had booked her newborn session already, at the last minute felt she might regret not having photos of her pregnancy, so I popped to her home and we took a few photos whilst discussing her impending labour. The session was peaceful, the light amazing and the results, I hope you will agree, are stunning. 


Enjoy these images and we promise to bring you more from Dinkyheart Photography soon!

A brief description about your business and what it is that you do…

I am owner and photographer at dinkyheart photography, and I specialise in maternity, newborn and family photography. 
Why do you love what you do…
I’ve always loved art and photography, with my first degree being in the photographic arts, so to be able to capture the love and beauty of a family is an absolute dream profession for me. I adore working with children and trying to capture a little piece of their world, and I hope to capture real memories for my clients, that would otherwise pass by. 
Your main focus of photography…
My focus over the last few years has been mainly family photography, but more recently I’ve been rediscovering my love for travel photography and I’m also about to enter the world of wedding photography.
A shoot you will always remember and why…
The shoot that comes to mind is the first newborn session that I ever done as dinkyheart photography. The baby had been unwell and had to stay in hospital for a few weeks, but as soon as he was out and well enough I went to his new home and took some pictures of him with his super proud and adoring parents. I remember thinking how absolutely beautiful and perfect he was, and this is exactly the feeling that I hope to achieve with every newborn session. 
Why do you love Dubai…
I love Dubai for the amazing mix of people and cultures, the hidden gems of restaurants, cafes and galleries that only us ‘locals’ know about, and of course the incredible weather for at least 9 months of the year!
Your favourite place to go for a relaxing cup of tea…
The arabian tea house in the bastakiya, although I don’t go there nearly enough. 
Your favourite holiday destination…
I love to travel but I’d say the one country that really stole my heart is Sri Lanka.
