IMG_3879

In the beginning of this year, In March to be precise, I worked with family photographer Ahlam Raffii to photograph my son, Yousef and I. The photos were amazing, and you can view all of them on Ahlam’s website, here. But the reason I’m writing this post is because Ahlam recently surprised me with these two video edits from our shoot! I just love them! It’s amazing how time goes so fast, Make sure you always enjoy every minute with your loved ones, life is really too short.

The Posh Fairy Goes Under Water

006

For as far as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with underwater photography. Maybe because it reflects a certain type of beauty that you don’t see everyday, and you definitely might not even know exists!

The work on this project was challenging as much as it was very exciting. I put the team together and was stuck looking for the photography equipment that we needed, rented some from a company and scheduled the shoot which had to be between 3 am and 9 am since the pool of Al Hamra Thermae would be open for members after that. The shoot was a while back so add to that, it was freezing! Unfortunately, Jalil and I weren’t happy with the results, and the shots were not a success. We had to stop, go home, and reschedule another early shoot. Meanwhile, look for better equipment.

About 3 weeks later, we were ready. With an excited team and killer equipment, we scheduled the shoot for the second time. Here’s a glimpse of what went on, and of course, the outcome.

A few of you may know that I have been a proud member of The Protégés, 1st Generation that took place in 2010. It was an amazing experience, a journey like no other during which I met wonderful, positive, and powerful people, be it the students, the mentors, and even the organizers. A very enriching exposure that opens the doors of limitless possibilities, self-development, and life improvements. It was truly an inspiring adventure that until this day has its soft spot in my heart.

Zain Telecom Cute Sentimental Gift

001

I’m gonna start by saying that I’m not the type of person who is easily impressed or touched by a present! On the contrary, I’m very picky and I hardly like any gift that I receive! Now, when I gave birth to my first baby 8 weeks ago, I got a whole bunch of baby stuff that I ended up getting rid of most of them, no offense to anyone, but I just have a very specific taste in things, and even more when it comes to my baby!

However, when I received this cute something from Zain Telecom, I was swept away! The most adorable personalized set of blankets, towels, and a little sofa for my little one! Unbelievably thoughtful! And it’s exactly how I like my baby’s stuff to be, blue and plain, no color overdose, silly prints, or a whole bunch of characters! Just classy, elegant, and full of love!
