Summer Projects | Abu Dhabi Photographer

Last summer we only went away for a month – which given when Ramadan fell meant we then had 8 weeks of school holidays summertime in Abu Dhabi. Which meant i needed a number of projects up my sleeve to keep a 4 and a 2 year old occupied when we couldn’t go out cos…

We’re going to China | Abu Dhabi Travel Photographer

There’s an episode of the kids programme Ni Hao Kai Lan where she goes on a trip to visit family in China and she sings “We’re going to China, we’re going to China, I feel so happy!” and that’s all I hear being sung around here these days – the girls are so excited… Saffy’s…

Finally | Abu Dhabi Child Photographer

I’ve dawdled a long time on this… it’s a “pheweeee, finally!!!” moment on two counts – finally I got around to doing Indy’s 3rd birthday shoot – she turned 3 in March – bad Mummy..And finally I got a lensbaby…. it’s been on my wish list for so long (I asked Father Christmas for it…

Princess Spotella of Spotland

There’s a new Princess in town – and she’s not too happy about things….. We’ve been suffering chicken pox here these last 3 weeks and Saffy in particular isn’t a happy camper. I don’t think it’s the itching or the pussy spots that are bothering her as much as not being able to go to…

Rock the Casbah | Abu Dhabi Commercial Photographer

So you know how passionate I am about photography? And travel? And how I have a mild obsession with dressing my girls in gorgeous, unique, handcrafted designs? Well imagine if I got to do all of that? Together? Oh yeah, that’s the kind of stuff that gives me palpitations!!! So, there I am, e-chatting away…

Crazy week!!

Last week was a crazy week – we all have them sometimes… we had 2 birthdays and Chinese New Year celebrations in our home, and all had to be done in style! There was dragon making….. And of course my Chinese girls insist on celebrating Chinese New Year properly… including showing off their awesome chopstick skills!!!…

2010… A review…

I so love what I get to do for a living… meeting the amazing families of Abu Dhabi, and further afield, and reconnecting with former clients who’ve now become friends is just wonderful.  I feel very blessed, and honoured to be able to capture memories and just a little bit emotional when I go back through…

‘Twas the week before Christmas….

The country where we live | Dubai Photographer

Happy 39th National Day! I hope you’re all having a fantastic day and enjoying all the festivities. We don’t get an awful lot of free time in our family, what with me working weekends, but a couple of weeks ago my hubby had exams in Dubai and we all went up and after his exams…

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…

Something Fishy!!!

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).
