You spend time making lists of female and male names, you find out the gender and you stick with one list. Then you select your favourites and you try to imagine how the names will fit the new addition to your family. This little one got the beautiful name Maxime. Isn't it so cute?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you guess, if this is a boy or girl? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks to @_the_party for making this cute sign for this maternity session with Masha & Didier. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babynames
The kiss! And this is the golden hour, just perfect light just before the sun sets. And when its done on film, we can get some beautiful sun streaks too. Golden hour at Yas Links is the best 😍 #yaslinks #goldenhour
The details we ought to always include in a wedding shoot. A wedding is such a fast paced environment and you can't always capture everything. So many things are out of your control. What are you must have snaps at a wedding? I love all the details but also couple photos are so important, and not to forget family and friends. Without them there is nothing. And the set-up! Grrrr there is too much, I love it all! #musthaves #weddingsnaps Photo on Fuji400h with Contax645 / Scanned and processed by @carmencitalab
Royal wedding of the year, congratulations Prince Harry & Meghan Markle (and @alexilubomirski who was the chosen wedding photographer).
Celebrating the start of Ramadam with a blue wave on marble, and a trip to Europe. Let's make this a special month. Whatever you are taking on this month, be it fasting, good deeds, supporting people in need, making healthier choices, turning to spirituality, mindfulness or just re-focusing yourself and staying closer to family, I wish you well in your endeavours. I hope this month brings you peace, love and kindness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's try to use this month to spend more time with the people close to us and less time on our phones. Real conversations gets priority over whatsapp conversations. Can you do it? #ramadanmovement ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ramadan Kareem! ⭐🌙
Where do dream of getting your engagement photos taken? Engagement at the Louvre in Abu dhabi with Naeim and his stunning Thuraya 😍 #thelouvreabudhabi #engagementabudhabi
Desert colours are my swag. I love the colour tones and all the muted shades of beige, clay tones, blueish shadows, the soft pink hues of walls, the greige of the palm tree stems and the light greens. The funny thing is that I inherently hate pink. And still I'm moving more towards it, whaaaaat? What colours are your swag? #getyourcolourswagon
Exciting project coming soon. Love doing these brand shoots for clients and I love how these turned out. Green for the win. Stay tuned to find out what this new brand is?! 🧘🏼♀️ We offer creative brand sessions for any brand that needs to revamp their imagery and get a look that's truly reflective of the brand.

Always experimenting in camera with double exposures. I just love interlacing 2 images or even 3 sometimes. I'm going to try this more in my everyday life soon but first focusing on light so join me to #explorelightwithmaria this summer! i'm just goin to explore available light and experiment so who's excited?! #allaboutlight #doublexposure #film Shot on Contax645, fuji400h / processed by @carmencitalab
Wedding day happy tears after father daughter dance. Most weddings I also shed a tear. I would have been fine before kids but now... 😭😭 the moment someone breakes out in tears on the wedding day, I'm joining BUT I've got a camera to cover my face 😉 so you wouldn't even know. Please tell me I'm not alone. Who else cries at weddings? @carlisens I know you would 😂 // Captured on digital Canon 5D.
It's all about the details. This beautiful ring that Naeim gave to Thuraya 😍💍 What do they say, that a girl's best friend is diamonds...? my best friends are my cameras 🤣📷📽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although I can't argue with this ring. It is unreal! #ringgoals💍💎 Anyway, how do you like darker images? I love how this turned out on film, and this light seeking experience fits well into my #explorelightwithmaria journey this summer. Here I exposed for the light and took a reading on the ring itself to expose correctly. Have you tried something similar? I want to see! Post your pics and tag me and #explorelightwithmaria
Sweden bound. To bicycle in the summer wind, to scour the forests for blueberries, to bring the deal of a lifetime home, to spend quality time with family, to run in the grass with my son, and of course to attend and photograph 2 weddings! Who else is escaping the heat? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #swedenbound #travel
