Lifestyle Blog Photoshoot in Dubai: As a lifestyle blogger, a photoshoot at least once a year, can be a super handy tool in your toolbox…
We ask to our Founder Simona Briggiotta aka Samira Cooper: “Why in the heck do you have a photoshoot of yourself?”
She replied as: ” Even if, spending a day in front of the camera, (when you are FAR from being a model), can be quite awkward, as a blogger, images can be a crucial aspect of engagement. Social media, blog posts, marketing material… the list goes on. People love to see pictures, and now days, I believe people would rather “read” stories with images, than with a lot of text. So having a “bank” of images to use throughout the year can be incredibly handy. So for me, when planning a photoshoot day, I think it like a trip in my daily routine as blogger through the lens of a camera”.
First of all, a HUGE “thank you,” goes out to Amanda, https://www.amandagril.com/ She followed me around all day, snagging these images, and coming up with brilliant ideas and angles to capture exactly what I was looking for. This girl can make you as a Star, all while making you look like you’re a natural. Love.Her.
I was very glad to wear the beautiful dresses designed by The Italian Fashion Stylist and Image Consultant Laura https://www.laurallievi.com
Feeling very comfy and confident with the blue jumpsuit and look like “Gilda-Rita Hayworth” (let me dream about it) wearing such a super cocktail black dress.
A day of being in front of the camera SURE starts off a lot better when my favorite makeup stylist, Mariya Semenova @mariyasafirmua, take care of my look.
Let the shoot begin…
We started a trip around the city with my car, as usual I do in the morning, going at the meetings, discovering new locations and looking for new business opportunities. My mobile phone and my car are my best partner in crime 😉
In the afternoon, we had fun shooting in a beautiful park around the lakes, where I used to go during my free time for a walk, breathing the nature and relaxing myself after working on my blog and social media channels. The next destination was the amazing Dubai Marina with the stunning view of Cayan Tower. I was feeling a star wearing a very pretty dress and my favorite high heels shoes.
