Kirsty Larmour Photography – Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photography » Lifestyle Photography in Abu Dhabi

I love the other women that make up this project, but one who makes me nod at her wise words, and makes me laugh with her worldly thoughts is Rashmi – I hope I’ll meet her one day, but until that day I’ll just keep reading her blog… head over there now to read this […]

  • Ginger Unzueta - I love your realness Kirsty, coupled with the optimism. We certainly all face hard days as mamas, as children, as people, but as we look and find the joy, the things to be grateful for within these times, somehow we find the peace we need. What a beautiful example of that this letter is to your girls.

  • Anna-Liisa - Ours has been a grumpy home this month too with lots of exhausted small and big people trying to get used to all the day to day things we have to cram in! Hooray for Eid holiday just round the corner to cheer everyone up! Love the colours in these photos Kirsty, they are very delicate. Xoxo

  • Debbie Wibowo - Oh Kirsty, I giggled reading your letter this month and I love your positive energy in seeing the good during the not so good days. It is the cloudy days and the sunny days that make our world a whole and what make us grow. I am sure that when they grow up and look back on those cloudy days, they would be able to say that your wisdom helped them go through it. …And those pictures are just perfect. You captured a beautiful sisterhood!

  • Sara T - Kirsty! “Down in the dump, grumpy guts”. I adore this saying and I will repeat it in my house one day, thanks to you. I do love your optimism even in those months you are trying to regain your life’s rhythm. It can be so difficult, but rewarding once the rhythm is reset and peace is restored. I adore the way you write with conviction. I don’t think you are delusional. I think this is the ebb and flow of life. I have my kids on a goal and point system complete with a checklist every morning. Mornings in our house are “golden”.

  • rowe - how i can relate to every word… how we love them more than life itself but they can make us crazy at times and on one hand we feel like it will never end and on the other we find ourselves dreaming of days where things feel normal again! sometimes it takes little longer than we hope to reach our happy place but when we do, we are so thankful because of the grumpy days! i like to think the grey cloud days are kind of a blessing in disguise! maybe thats just me? rowe x (p.s. love your imperfectly perfect film photos lovely)

  • Sarah C - I love this. So real, and so the image is so beautiful! We have plenty of times like these. Our four children are all so different and sometimes that is enough for them to get along so well, and then other times they are seriously outshouting each other and I am ready to hide in a corner lol! We also have a growler too so I may have gotten a giggle there. I love you and your sweet girls, and though we have never “met” in person I feel like you are a dear friend. Some day I hope our girls can meet, because I know my little ladies would adore yours!

I can’t believe I’ve not blogged these pics – especially when I’ve had someone as gorgeous as Charly in front of my lens!! Charly came to me on a school work placement and was a dream of a girl to work with – she assisted me on some shoots and learned some of the stuff […]

  • Sarah B - Gorgeous girl and such a fun, different, interesting setting too – must have been fun to play around like that

  • Janine - Wow! Great shots in an amazing location! You must have been like a kid in a candy store with all that beautiful light and those textures. Beautiful. Jx

  • Rebecca - These are soooo great Kirsty. It’s not very often I fall in love with “Senior” photos. What a cool location. XO

I’m crazy behind on blogging and I really should try and catch up – so here goes… my first “trying to catch up” post. This gorgeous family I’ve got to know over the last few years in Abu Dhabi as the Mum is also a photographer – but the first time I managed to get […]

  • Kate - Hooray!!! Back to blogging some AD gorgeousness – and such a lovely family to start with – that bottom picture is just bursting with personality

  • Jill - Such beautiful images Kirsty and a lovely family captured perfectly

  • Debbie W - Adorable kids. Love that big toothless smile and the little girl is a precious!

  • Janine - Such beautiful children!!….and parents too, of course. Lots of love there. Captured beautifully, Kirsty.

I missed last month!! My first time missing a month and I would have loved to have blogged some photos but we were travelling and had no internet and I actually didn’t even take a laptop – never mind, maybe one day I’ll backdate a post for last month! Anyway… to this month…. and some […]

  • our project ten: september 2013 » Oh Lulu Blog - [...] Please continue on to see what my friend Kirsty has been up to.  I can pretty much promise she won’t have boring dog adoption story narrative to wade through:  http://kirstylarmourblog.com/?p=4057 [...]

  • Debbie W - Oooh..how envy I am looking at Saffy and Indy spending quality time with their grandparents! That pic of Saffy trying to catch sugar is just awesome!

  • rowe - what a gorgeous adventure… cooking and exploring woods and fields all in one day! so pretty… the light in the kitchen in the icing sugar photos is crazy beautiful!!!

  • Rashmi Pappu - I adore Saffy’s haircut so much, but more than the haircut I adore her spirit! All little girls should have her confidence and her giving heart. You must be so proud of her Kirsty. Our girls are such beautiful people, inside and out.

  • Ginger Unzueta - oh, Kirsty, I love this. she is most beautiful any way she has her hair and that confidence..that is the beauty that flows. motherhood, so many wonderful phases, lessons, and loves we go through. thank you for sharing this. xo

  • Jessica Downey - Soooo beautiful!

  • Emma Wood - No no no, this beautiful letter is not just about your sweet brave girl making the decision to cut her hair, it shows how hard it is for us Mamas to let our babies grow up. But you do let her, in the best way possible. I already feel how inspiring you are to me as a Mother and a friend. You don’t smother, you nurture and you inspire. I could learn so much from you and I know that I will. Thank you for coming into my life with your wise words and your gentle ways, my life has become richer with you in it. <3

  • shalonda - oh sweet saffy!!!! what a beautiful independence and CONFIDENCE you radiate with!!! i adore your haircut but more than that i am smitten with watching you grow up through these letters your mommy writes you. xoxo to you too Kirsty ;)

  • Kate - Oh sweet Saffy, what a big brave girl you’re becoming, and what a compassionate one too. Which charity did she send her hair to if you don’t mind me asking?

  • Catherine Vargas - LOVE those pictures and your little girl is adorable :)

  • Amy - These photos of your big girl are so telling — I can see how much you love her in each and every one. And I am so going to write a letter about hair to my girls! Love this so much, Kirsty! You are such an inspiration to me. <3

This month I am linking to one of the loveliest souls I know Debbie of Delight Fine Art Photography as she writes to her gorgeous daughter…. Until next month, Kirsty xx

  • Amy Lucy Photography - [...] Next please visit the blog of my dear friend and kindred spirit Kirsty Larmour | Abu Dhabi Photographer. [...]

  • Mairi Clare - Hi Kirsty

    Not quite so original as Indy, but Aaron did a similar topic last year and he was the only one who put anything remotely thoughtful (all the other children bar none put sports star/popstar). He wanted (and still wants) to be an engineer and palaeontologist – the TA apparently had to get the dictionary out to put the second one on the display.

    It made me very proud that he knows his own mind and didn’t just follow the crowd. We continue to support his dream and will see what becomes of it in years to come – we have kept the sheet he wrote it on :-)

  • Letters to Our Daughters | July 2013 » Minneapolis Photographer – Olive Avenue Photography - [...] So everyday I sign to you…”You are good.  You are smart.  You are beautiful.”  Everyday I pray that you let go a little more of the weight you’ve carried since the day you were orphaned.  I pray that the innocence of childhood will return…and that you will run free. You’ve stumbled across our special photography project called Letters to Our Daughters.  Follow the chain of letters written by amazing moms and photographers across the globe…starting with one of my photography heroes and one of the sweetest people you could hope to meet Kirsty Larmour | Abu Dhabi Photographer. [...]

  • amy grace - you are the most amazing mama. i always know i will leave here feeling full. i know anything these girls will be will be ok, as long as they find their joy. and you will lead them there. you make the world good. you make it bigger. you make me want to stretch myself. xoxo

  • Kate - To bring up dreamers, children who can see beyond themselves and beyond the here and now is a great gift to them Kirsty, especially in this day and age – you are doing a wonderful and important job by stretching their imaginations

  • Kirsty - Mairi Clare, that’s wonderful :D I think in the pressure to teach kids schools sometimes forget to let them dream and follow their own paths – clearly the TA was not a Friends fan!!!

  • shalonda - KIRSTY! i read this post smiling…i can feel it, i can see it and you are one amazing mama to have captured it. THE DREAMS OF A 5 year old are truly magical and simply beautiful….incredible sweet friend just incredible

  • Debbie Wibowo - Dear Indy, when you invent a machine that can turn us into rainbow unicorn, I’ll definitely buy that machine. Because I want to have rainbow hair and rainbow wings, and fly to places. Like your mom said, keep your dreams alive and they will take you to beautiful places.

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this yet – a couple of months ago the beautiful Teresa and Thomas magazines first print issue came.

Ramadan Kareem to you all. It’s the first day of Ramadan, the start of the holy month here in the U.A.E. and it’s also July’s Project 10 day. I shot this 2 days ago as the school holidays had started – it was a day of hanging out, heading to the supermarket and also delivering […]

  • Sarah Cornish - Oh gosh, those sandy bottoms are SO part of summer. Now we have poolside wediges (we miss the beach so) but i can relate to every image you posted. These are precious!

I’ve always been one who doesn’t take the path of least resistance – I’ve always pushed myself to keep learning, to keep being an observer, to stay true and authentic, but to grow and be open to change and new experiences – I try to do this in life, and in photography… but often this […]

  • Lena - Kirsty – love this post!! I think all of us feel a bit vulnerable sometimes (although you definitely don’t have a reason to!) and it is such a inspiration to see you push past those vilnerabities and with such amazing result. Love these images and how happy Indy is! Xoxo!

  • Summer - In love. Film scares me for those same reasons Kirsty. And light meter ap? I’m going to look for it right now. These are awesome and the fact that they were taken with your grandfathers camera makes them even more awesome.

Project 10 time again – 10 photos throughout one day day… I’ve been totally inspired by a project some of my photographer friends have been doing called “Kids were here” (See Summer and Ginger‘s take on this).

  • alpana - so lovely to have a glimpse into your kids’ world! I miss seeing their adorable faces but this is the next best thing:-) Their reading reminds me of what I used to read as a kid – Famous Five and Secret Seven. They aren’t as popular in the US but I got R a few books when I went to India last!

  • robyn oakenfold - how wonderful are these. your simple daily items really makes me so very happy… it is a quiet glimpse into your days. but i agree with alpana… i miss your sweet girls. oh and i must look up some of those books for my girls.

  • Summer - Umm yeah, we all have lipgloss, pink cups and pencil sharpeners all lined up on our couches. Ha. Love every one Kirsty. I’m convinced these kinds of photos will open the memory floodgates in a different way than any others we take. You amaze me. Xo
