The Abu Dhabi Milk Maids! | Abu Dhabi charity photographer

La Leche League of Abu Dhabi has produced a calendar to promote awareness of breastfeeding here in the U.A.E.  I was so thrilled to be involved with this project.  So many people think that you can’t breastfeed in Abu Dhabi because it’s a Muslim country, or that you need to hide away. My task was simply to photograph lovely ladies feeding beautiful babies in a wide selection of locations around the city, just to show that it can be done.

The next task is for us to see the calendars up in every cafe, nursery, school, gym and doctors waiting room around town to help raise awareness that no matter how little, or how long you feed your baby for, you don’t need to hide away.  If you think you can help out selling half a dozen to some of those places please do let me know!!

The calendar couldn’t have been produced without the help of some wonderful organisations – huge thanks for supporting the mothers of Abu Dhabi goes out to the following:

St Andrews Playgroup

Abu Dhabi Mums

Abu Dhabi Kidz Biz

Jay Davies – personal trainer and nutritionist

Global Printing Press

The calendar will be on sale at LLL meetings, at the events for Breastfeeding Week 2010 – particularly the tea party at the One to One hotel this coming Sunday (7th November), at the Abu Dhabi Kidz Biz launch party (27th November) or direct from Tracy at LLL, or from myself. 

Last but not least, a massive thank you goes to all the ladies and babies who modelled and made this all possible – lets hope it really does help to raise awareness and break down some of the taboos about breastfeeding here in Abu Dhabi,

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,
