I can’t recall the last time I had my picture taken by a professional photographer. But I think it was around 15 years ago at my last year of high school for the graduation ceremony 🙂 Fast forward a decade and five years later, I got the opportunity to have my pictures taken again by a professional photographer: Yasir Saeed Photography. Only this time, the setting was different…I was residing in Dubai, doing the photo shoot mainly for my blog and online profiles, and most importantly; I didn’t have to worry about the veil messing up my hair as I wore it to get to my photo shoot location when I was in Saudi in the late ’90s 🙂
Another significant variation between the two shoots that I must mention is the fact that I had my pictures taken by a male photographer. I found it so incredibly easy to connect with Yasir Saeed. As he too grew up in Saudi; more specifically in my hometown. He even lived in the neighborhood that I’m mostly familiar with. Indeed, it’s a small world after all 🙂
I had some ideas for the poses for the shoot, which I jotted down on a piece of paper to show to Yasir. However, since the photographer had the right skills and experience, we didn’t really need to refer to my notes for some inspiration. Instead, the ideas and poses came naturally as we moved from one session to another. All while playing dress up with three of my favorite dresses and with the use of a lovely bright eye mask for some added funky and mysterious style.
The photo shoot session was a lot of fun, especially when I laughed out loud at myself and my failed attempts in replicating the poses that Yasir was suggesting to me 😀
If you are reading this and thinking any of the following:
- I’m not photogenic.
- I’m not a natural poser.
- I feel camera shy.
- I always look bad in pictures.
Rest assured, that you won’t have anything to worry about with Yasir Saeed Photography. As he won’t put any pressure on you to pose or act in a certain way in front of the camera. On the contrary, he will allow you to just be your natural self and do whatever poses you like. The whole photo session atmosphere was so relaxed and chilled, that anyone would quickly get used to the camera lens and start creating their own photo portraits using their imagination 🙂
Whether you are looking to take some spontaneous and fun shots of yourself for personal use to frame in your home, or you would like to update your LinkedIn, web site, or social network profile photos for business use and self-branding purposes, look no further than Yasir Saeed Photography. His great talent, unmatched skills, and immense passion for what he does are widely evident in the photos he produces.
