Out at the Fossil Rocks

I think it’s no surprise to anyone how much I love exploring around Abu Dhabi and the UAE and capturing photographs in some of our more diverse landscapes. So one afternoon some we headed off with some friends for a picnic out at the fossil rocks. The 5 kids loved clambering over them and playing/exploring/fighting/hiding together as kids tend to do and I was delighted by just capturing them as they passed by in the beautiful sunset that was cast over them. Abu Dhabi desert photographyAbu Dhabi desert photo shootI’m not a big fan of asking my kids to smile for the camera, but anyone who has read “Photography on the Fly” will know that I’m not afraid to prompt or encourage them into moving in a certain direction if the light is pretty and the compositions work for me. Sometimes just calling their name gets them to turn around for that split second in the right place and enables you to capture just that right picture.Abu Dhabi desert photographyAbu Dhabi desert photo shootAbu Dhabi desert photo shoot

I LOVE this one of all 5 kids together – I’ve told them this will be their album cover when they make a record!! Haha!!

Until next time, Kirsty xx

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,

Kirsty xx
