A Tribute to Leaves: Baby K Photoshoot


I grew up in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates where we had summers all year long. I was amazed upon moving to Georgia as a 13 year old to see the seasons in action. Every colour of autumn is truly magnificent, and I hope I never get immune to its beauty. Z and Baby K loved the leaves, its colours, its textures.

Baby K and his mom A were beautiful to photograph and Baby K was calm and composed throughout, mesmerized by the aforementioned leaves. The only time Baby K did cry was when he was being put into an orange sweater. I included that photo inside the slideshow because babies cry: it’s what they do, so there wouldn’t be a true photoshoot of Baby K without the crying photo.

Below is one of my favourite photos. It’s where K is almost ready to topple over into the leaves, but it almost looks like he’s dancing or talking to the tree.

My favourite Mommy-Baby photo is below:

Slideshow begin….(FYI, these were taken at Piedmont Park, Atlanta. Check out the leaves plus the skyline!)

“And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record” (Quran 6:59).


About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
