Coffee Morning with UAE Mom Bloggers + A Family Photoshoot with Picture People

This is my favorite photo among the five photos Picture People gave us

and this is my second favorite, as Picture people said on their comment on Instagram when I posted it, "two peas in a pod", yes they are! They are a mixed of me and my husband's features and it was greatly captured here.

and third, this is Ferald's favorite, now both our iPhone's screen saver

and fourth, this one is for our wall

and fifth. Actually, I love them all. It was really hard to choose.

There were probably more than 20 shots taken, all of them captured beautifully, during our complimentary 20-minute photo session with photographer Erika of Picture People. There were so many beautiful photos but those five are the ones we really liked the most.

Here we are with our photographer at the viewing station checking our pictures, that one on the screen, I like that too. Special thanks to Mommy Abi for capturing this one.

This was our first professional family photoshoot and I said I'd like to keep it classic. The night before, we all agreed to wear white which came out really nice in our pictures.

Erika, our photographer was very professional and yet fun to work with. I'm glad that my kids were both in good mood that morning and were both having fun too during the shoot.

It was a great experience for us and we are happy to work with them and will definitely recommend to friends. They were all very professional and at the same time warm and patient especially with small kids.

The studio, located at Al Wasl Vita is very inviting.

The interior is minimalist with clean white walls, wooden floors and glass facade. There is a play area for the kids and a comfortable lounge.

There are three studios and four viewing stations. The walls were adorned with samples of their work, all looking fantastic.

This photo session with Picture People is part of UAE Mom Bloggers coffee morning which wouldn't be possible without the organizers behind it, Tarana of Sand In My Toes and Abigail of Cuddles and Crumbs. Thank you for bringing us all moms together and our families and giving us an opportunity to meet each other in a wonderful event like this. It was lovely to meet all of you.
