Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ can be found here.

Led by BIPP qualified photographer, author and trainer Alex Jeffries, we are a new professional family photography company. We make beautiful and elegant images and are the very first company in the region to be awarded membership to the NAPCP, The National Association of Professional Child Photographers, they are an association whose mission is to promote and support the artistry and integrity of professional child and family photographers around the world.


Beautiful, elegant and creative family photography for residents and visitors

We all know that wonderful feeling: when you slip off your shoes at the end of a long day, walk through fresh grass or stroll along the beach. We call it 'that Barefoot feeling', a moment when you're relaxed, comfortable and can truly be yourself. We know that everyone wants to capture great photos of their loved ones (with everybody in the shots), but not at great cost, or in a stuffy formal environment. And so BarefootDubai Photography was born: stylish, contemporary and beautiful images captured on relaxed and fun photo shoots. Whether you're a self-conscious pregnant mum to be, a couple in need of some down time, or a family who just can't all smile at the same time, we can help. We can even soothe your beautiful newborn and capture some wonderful images, at a time when we know you are going through a roller coaster of emotions.

BIPP Qualified Photographer

Alex is a British Institute of Professional Photography qualified photographer. BIPP President, Roy Meiklejon FBIPP, states "BIPP qualifications are among the most rigorous in the world."

NAPCP Member

Residents and visitors

The Barefoot Dubai team have built a great reputation, not only for creating great images, but also for giving families and visitors what they really want. A photography service which creates beautiful and affordable couples, maternity, newborn and family portraits for residents and visitors is finally here. Barefoot Dubai takes the stress and expense out of professional family photography and captures memories in a relaxed and unique way, in your home and at some of Dubai's most beautiful locations.

Our approach is quite different from other family photographers in Dubai, we have thought long and hard about our costs and deliverables and we are creating images that are a real step ahead of the rest.

Giving you what you want
We know that a lot of the family photography companies in Dubai prefer to charge for each image, whilst this makes them a lot of money, it doesn't really give you what you want. At Barefoot Dubai, we feel, that after chatting to a lot of you and listening to your experiences with other companies, that the days of charging for each photograph or file have passed... Our deliverables, pricing and packages are not based on what we want, they are based on what you want, your wants and needs, we have thought long and hard about this and are constantly reviewing. We think it's working, we are now very pleased to be shooting with clients from all around the GCC and the rest of the world.

    Thank you so much, the images are amazing! We had a great experience with BarefootDubai.

  • Vivek Testi Circle 3

    The pictures are amazing and we just loved the session. A very special thanks to Sapphire and Ruth who made us feel very comfortable at the studio so we were able to give our best smiles. They were not waiting for the session to finish, but completely focussed on getting the best shots throughout – that is what impressed me the most. Looking forward to booking again as soon as possible!

  • Ana Testi Circle

    Barefoot has been our go-to photography company since our daughter was born. We have had two newborn photoshoots for both our kids and a whole family shoot. Can’t say enough good things about Sapphire and Alex as photographers, the assistants in each shoot, the support team and of course, the final results! We have images that have captured precious moments forever. Thank you Barefoot!

  • Amy Testi Circle

    What an amazing experience from Barefoot! We had a maternity shoot and couldn’t be happier with the pics! Barefoot were absolutely amazing! We can’t wait for our newborn shoot! Thanks Alex and the team.

  • Bethany Testi Circle 2

    We absolutely LOVE the images!! Thank you so much. I was so exhausted on the day and not sure how the photos would turn out but after seeing the photos I am so glad we decided to do the shoot, and will always have these photos to remember our daughter being only a day old! I am sure we will be in touch again to book her next photoshoot!!

    Bethany and Daniel
  • Mashael Testi Circle 1

    I just had the chance to look through the pictures. I really don’t know how to express how much I love them! I tried many photographers in Dubai but honestly speaking Barefoot was the best. For sure I will be one of your loyal customers. Thank you so much to the team – everything from A to Z was just perfect.

  • Samar

    Dear Barefoot family, I can’t thank you enough for the amazing photoshoot and the lovely coffee table book. Thank you so much for everything and for the voucher as well. Hope we will see you soon. Much love from all of us.

  • Leanne Testi Circle

    We had a newborn photo shoot with Barefoot and I can’t say enough nice things about it! The team visited us at home for the shoot, they showed infinite gentleness and patience with our little one, the babies comfort came across as the most important thing! We have just received our images, on the exact day we were told we would get them, and I absolutely love every one of them. The hardest part now will be choosing one or two to print! I can’t recommend Barefoot enough. Thank you for our amazing photographs.

  • Andy Testi Circle

    We visited Dubai over the New Year holiday and the team were able to accommodate us at short notice and worked with us to make sure the shoot was perfect. Sapphire did a great job of engaging our little one and the pictures turned out great!

  • Zeta Testi

    As someone who has never really been photogenic, booking barefoot Dubai’s new Mompreneur Portrait shoot to get some portraits taken for my website was quite daunting. However, from the moment I arrived in the studio both Alex and Sapphire made me feel very comfortable. Within minutes I was laughing and felt very relaxed in front of the camera. The whole shoot was great fun. And what was exceptional was not only the quality of the photographs, but also how actually empowering it is to go through this process, I felt confident, happy and quite relaxed throughout the whole shoot, seeing the images at the end is simply the cherry on the top. There were over 30 shots I loved that were delivered on the web page from the BFD team, with one in particular that I believe truly captured the REAL me and the image I wanted to portray on my website. I don’t think any other photographer would have been able to take such a great shot. If you are looking for a professional photography team, that will truly capture who you are AND make you look great, I would absolutely recommend Barefoot Dubai.

  • Katy Testi Circle

    Our whole experience with Barefoot was amazing, from the friendly service we received when we first scheduled the shoot, to the gentle way that you worked with our little boy and the beautiful images that we received afterwards. We have already started recommending Barefoot to our pregnant friends and will definitely use you again ourselves in the future.

    Katy and Andy
  • Manish Testu Cicrle

    We recently completed a Indian movie (2 States) themed photo shoot, since that is the theme for our wedding as well. We absolutely loved the photos, as they were able to recreate the movie posters and images quite brilliantly. Based on their recommendation, we were able to print and use a map as our background, which was the highlight of the shoot. The whole team at Barefoot was extremely cooperative, responsive and friendly, even when we had to reschedule the shoot. We would definitely recommend them to everyone.

    Manish and Mathu
  • Vanessa Testi Circle

    Thank you so much for our wonderful family beach photos! We did a lot of research choosing a photographer and the Barefoot team has exceeded our expectations. From the first email to Kelly all the way through to receiving our images the process has been flawless and professional. Sapphire was amazing, helping our toddlers relax and have fun on the beach whilst capturing the most beautiful images. We hoped for at least one family image to put on canvas and now we have too many to choose from! They are all simply stunning! We love the different styles of photos and we will be recommending Barefoot to all our friends and family!

  • Amit Juhi Testi Circle 2

    Thank you so much for the lovely pictures. We sat down all together, the whole family to see them. All of us loved it, such a treat. A special thanks to Barefoot for being there to capture such great moments of us to cherish for the rest of our lives. Special Announcement: Our Baby Ahaan arrived soon after the shoot on the 21st Jan. It’s like he was waiting for his parents to do the shoot with Barefoot. A warm hug from the Singh Family and Our Little One to the whole team. You guys are doing a great job. Thank you once again! See ya guys again soon.

    Amit and Juhi
  • Antti Testi Circle 1

    Despite a very short notice, Alex was very accommodating with our photoshoot request and timelines, organised our shoot and gave great advice on practicalities. For the shoot itself, our photographer Sapphire did a great job, was embracing our ideas and captured them very well. As the image processing was also good, the final outcome was great, and we now have tens of great images from our special day. Everything was very well managed by the Barefoot team. Thank you.

  • Layal Testi

    I AM IN LOVE with each photo.. I knew that we were going to have amazing shots, but I am amazed at how natural and beautiful it came out!! Thank you so so much Barefoot… In each photo I see Laila’s soul shining through her eyes and smile! I am sure that when she is older she will be so happy that she had her first birthday shoot done… and done so beautifully… I think I will go over them a thousand times!

  • Suzan

    Thank you and the barefoot family for an amazing shoot, you have exceeded our expectations, the team was very patient with us and gave us lots of good ideas for the shoot. We will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Hope to see you guys soon for the next shoot.

    Suzan, Yousef and Saif
  • Ellen Testi Cricle

    My fiancé and I recently did a Barefoot Dubai photo shoot on the beach, for memories of our engagement. We are both thrilled with the photos. They really are amazing. We had so much fun doing them too! Alex made us feel so at ease. Very much recommended. Thanks Barefoot Dubai!

    Ellen and Jamie
  • Rati

    Team Barefoot, first of all many thanks for making our son Ahyan’s first birthday so special. A Cake Smash photo shoot! First, we were a bit anxious seeing Ahyan a bit off-mood just before the event. Thanks to very chirpy Ruth and cool Sapphire from Barefoot to turn the situation into a small pre-cake smash party with Ahyan enjoying every bit of singing and cheering. Then… what great shots! In a very smooth way. For sure it was lots of experience showing up when we saw how Sapphire made Ahyan so comfortable with everything and gave us small tips on the fly to ensure that Ahyan’s tempo continued. The little rockstar was all charged up and was enjoying being a centre of attraction we had to literally take 10 inches tall cake away from him, to bring the event to closure. And when the photographs came we re-lived the moments once again and loved each and every snap. Real smashing experience it was. Thank you Sapphire. We had a great end to end professional experience with Barefoot. Kelly’s coordination was superb. Alex: Your team rocks! Many thanks again. All the best to Barefoot to grow leaps & bounds. We will surely be in touch for more assignments.

  • katie

    I’ve lived in Dubai for seven years and worked with a lot of photographers here, and have to say that working with Alex and the entire Barefoot team was one of the best experiences I’ve had. It was fascinating to watch the Barefoot team work so closely and seamlessly together. They were so kind, creative, helpful and all had a great sense of humour – which is important when working with both a newborn, toddler AND tired parents who are not getting much sleep! I think it also helps that Alex is a father too – so he understands first hand the kind of shots that you want to capture. We were able to view the shots as we were taking them, which was so lovely to see (and also helpful for new Mums still trying to hide the baby weight!) Another reason we booked Barefoot is because they provide so many great photos. I know that some photographers prefer to charge per photo, or only provide 20 or so, with extra fees for additional photos. Barefoot provide 30 – 40 at least which is fantastic, at no additional charge! They also provided all of the digital photos in colour, sepia and black and white so that we could easily decide how we’d like to view them. I simply can’t sing Barefoot Dubai’s praises enough – they were an absolute delight and I’m planning on booking them each year to take some family snaps.

  • Natasha

    We had a great time yesterday and loved every moment of our shoot. We had such a lovely time, Alex was fantastic and really made my 3 year old feel at ease. The pics are great and truly can’t wait to have them framed and put up in the house. Thank you for all your help, you have a lovely team, I will make sure to recommend you to others.

    Natasha, Spencer and Alex
  • Bouchra2

    We had a wonderful photoshoot for my baby’s first birthday , it was such lovely experience. Everyone was very friendly and professional throughout the booking and communication stage. Alex was the photographer, I highly recommend Barefoot.

    Bouchra and Anders
  • Nilufar

    I wanted to thank you and the barefoot team! We had a smash cake shoot, the Barefoot team arrived on time with all their equipment. They were soft, calm and kind, always smiling! Sapphire is a true professional! Always explains her steps in advance, gave ideas on how to calm our son or how to pose to get great pics. Her assistant too, was grabbing my son’s attention when necessary, to sooth him and make him smile, clearly, very friendly, child loving girls. We loved it and really admired the work! Words are not enough to thank BarefootDubai!

  • Anna (Charlie)

    Oh my gosh!! We just love them all! Thanks so much to you and Alex for all your patience on the day and for being so gentle with baby Charlie. We will cherish the photos forever.

    Anna and baby Charlie
  • Diana

    A big big thank you to the Barefoot team for being extremely patient with Darren and of course us. We had an amazing time and enjoyed the shoot thoroughly. Being professional is a great thing however it really does touch a parent when one can see the warmth and love you guys have towards babies and you really did go out of the way to make sure that everything went on smoothly. From the time of setting up to the various parts of the shoot, to the clean up, everything seemed like a walk in the park because you guys made it so comfortable for us. We felt we had friends over doing the shoot for us, that’s how easy it was. So once again thanks a ton for doing a fabulous job and also for quickly sharing a few pictures as promised, just the next day. We are surely going to recommend Barefootdubai in our circle of friends and can’t wait to do an outdoor shoot once the weather gets pleasant.

  • Claudia Testimonial

    The team at Barefoot Dubai are an absolute pleasure to work with! From the first enquiry up until photo delivery – we found ourselves in the most professional hands throughout the entire process. We booked the maternity and newborn bundle. Sapphire made us feel completely at ease for the bump shoot in the comfort of our own home, incorporated our own ideas in the photos and made some great suggestions with regards to setting, poses, light and accessories. We were thrilled to receive an extensive set of stunning images, which we keep looking at over and over and over again! Soon it will be time for the bump to pop, and we can’t wait to add photos of our little one to the already amazing collection. Thank you, Barefoot Dubai!

  • Emma

    I had been searching for a good photographer for my baby girl for a while when I ran into the website of Barefootdubai. I was immediately impressed by the quality of their work as shown in their portfolio. I decided to contact them and they got back to me in no time. They were open and honest about their prices and what was included when you paid for the session, this was very impressive given that other photographers I contacted, didn’t quite disclose this information until 3-4 emails with continuous questions. The Barefoot Dubai team was always responsive and willing to address all my concerns. I really appreciated the fact that they are honest and upfront about their business, costs and packages. When it came time for the shoot two of their team members came to my home. They were excellent at handling my baby and they brought tons of different props for the pictures which I didn’t expect. They were able to capture very special images even though my baby was being quite fuzzy and distracted. They were incredibly patient and took their time to get the images right in between her crying spells. They also agreed to have my dog in the shoot which was very important for me. Overall it is my opinion that the services of Barefoot Dubai are of the highest quality and I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is considering a newborn photo shoot.

  • Areej Testimonial

    Thank you barefoot team for the beautiful lifetime photos taken of my newborn daughter. You have certainly preserved a precious memory. Looking forward to more shoots to come!

  • Prescilla

    Sapphire was an absolute blast to work with! It was our first ever photoshoot and we were wary as to how comfortable we would feel. Sapphire made us feel totally at ease, was very professional and even helped us with posing. You can tell she loves what she does, which is what you want in a photographer. I want to thank Barefoot for everything, we love our photos! We will definitely be booking you again!

  • suad

    From the moment we contacted Barefoot, we knew that we could trust Alex and the team. They were very professional and accommodating to our requests, responding to all my enquiries. We loved all the pictures we received and a big thank you to Sapphire for making it a fun photoshoot session; we had a wonderful time, lots of laughter and smiles. The pictures are just amazing, we both got many favorites ones. Great work Sapphire!!

  • Wendy

    We had a lovely time at the photoshoot and Barefootdubai was perfect with us, making us feel very relaxed. When we got the photos sent through we were thrilled with the results! There were so many beautiful ones to choose from, and all looking so natural. We would thoroughly recommend Barefootdubai – professional from start to finish!

  • Sean n Kirsty Testimonial 2

    We had our photo shoot with Barefoot on Palace Beach so that we could have the great Burj Al Arab building in the background. It was very hot, (June) windy too and our 17 month old son wasn’t being very cooperative. After 20 minutes I was ready to quit and accept that the shoot was a failure. But Barefoot persevered and kept us motivated to try alternative photo set ups, angles and poses. I’m so glad they kept us on the beach because really they have produced a fantastic set of photographs. We’re leaving Dubai after six years and now we have the perfect farewell present.

    Sean and kirsty
  • Pooja Testimonial

    The photoshoot from Barefoot Dubai is probably one of the best gifts I could give to our family. The Barefoot team have helped us preserve special memories in such amazing way, that we cannot help revisiting the pictures again and again and again! I would highly recommend Barefoot services to all those people who want special moments of life to be captured and you will be able to relish them for a lifetime!

    Pooja and Rishi
  • Noor

    We really enjoyed our photo shoot and we loved every single photo. We were so eager to share them with our family. Everything was so smooth from booking the appointment, to the actual session and then receiving the images. We recommend Barefoot to all and we will definitely go for it again.

  • Gabriel

    My daughters are not the easiest of clients: they have a strong concept of what is cool and what is embarrassing, and they don’t take direction easily, particularly since their mother will display the images for perpetuity. They refused beach photos and the Burj Al Arab background. Barefoot were great. They booked their studio at a convenient time, and they were set up and ready to go when we arrived. Alex and Sapphire wasted no time in getting the girls organised and posing like professionals. It was an absolute win/win scenario: the girls relaxed and enjoyed themselves during the session, and the resulting photos reflect that. The pictures were sent to us very quickly afterwards and we were really pleased with them. I would really recommend Alex for any kind of family pictures: it was not just the technical abilities, but the easy-going, pleasant manner that helped to make the most of the situation and get the best out of the difficult models.

  • thushara

    Barefoot delivered in seven days exactly as they promised. Not only did the images come out superb, but also my one year old had an incredible time at his cake smash. Its quite rare to find such fine professionalism in EVERYTHING – liaison, execution and delivery. Barefoot every time, hereafter!

  • kathie

    It was a great experience having my three kids photographed by Barefoot – the team were really relaxed, so pictured my kids in their ‘natural’ state, exactly how I wanted them to be. I also love that you get all the photos delivered so conveniently for sharing in web resolution and printing in high resolution as well. I would most definitely recommend Barefoot.

  • ahmed

    Thank you so soooooo much for the pictures. They are all extremely beautiful. We appreciate the awesome work done by Barefoot and we will spread the word to all our friends and families. Alex is extremely patient and a truly wonderful guy to work with. You guys are a wonderful, professional team and we wish you continued success in your amazing work.

    We would highly recommend Barefoot to anyone looking to have their special little one photographed. At the moment we are watching our gorgeous baby boy changing every day and our stunning Barefoot photographs mean we have a precious snapshot of him how he is right now. It is going to be unbelievably hard choosing which images we want to frame. At the moment we could have a whole wall dedicated to his first photoshoot! Thank you to the Barefoot team.

    Thank you for my first photoshoot, for keeping me safe and sound, i will introduce you to my little brother/sister next time round!
    Baby Pranav, 14 days old.
    If you’ve had a baby you’ll know how chaotic those first few days are, but I’ll remember the photoshoot morning as one of the loveliest, almost spiritual experiences, thanks to the atmosphere Barefoot created for Pranav – I didn’t want them to leave! They are wonderful with babies, patient and happy to accommodate requests even if the official shoot time is over. Professional newborn shoot specialists and also a timely delivery – highly recommend Barefoot without a second thought.

    We had fun doing the photo shoot with Alex. He was very professional the whole time and very patient in picturing our son. We certainly recommend Barefoot Dubai to capture those priceless family instants.

    Love all the images so much – thanks for capturing us so naturally! Also thank you for making us feel so comfortable… I normally hate having my photo taken but was completely comfortable and relaxed on this shoot. You must have sprinkled some magic dust in the air because no other photographer has been able to make me feel relaxed before.

    Thanks so much to Barefoot for the amazing shoot. My parents loved the experience and we are delighted with the results! I have already been talking about Barefoot Photo shoots whenever I get the chance and hope to refer many more people to you.

    We had one of Barefoot’s new Abra-Cadabra old Dubai romantic shoots. The general attention to detail and absolute focus on getting the perfect shot is what makes working with Barefoot so special. They genuinely care about their customers and focus on making you feel comfortable and relaxed also. We absolutely loved the unique pictures we received from our photo shoot and will be using them for our wedding website and save the dates.

    Thanks to Barefoot Dubai, we now have stunning images of our 7 month-old precious girl, Raneem. We opted for the Home Studio Shoot, which resulted in capturing beautiful images of Raneem. ‏Barefoot were very professional in dealing with her and they went the extra mile to ensure that we had a memorable photography experience. We look forward to booking another photoshoot with them very soon.

    We loved our pictures and the entire experience. Barefoot were so relaxed with our toddler and got some great shots in between the wiggling and chasing after him! The presentation of the photos was also really good and a great deal of thought went into the editing which made them just perfect. Highly recommended!

  • Yvonne

    Going through 10 months pregnancy is a beautiful journey and with the superb photographer Sapphire at Barefoot capturing the special moment for us – the pair of ‘parents to be’ is forever memorable… We loved those professionally taken photographs at the beach with the images of us so casual and at ease, enjoying the stunning sunrise. When first time viewing these photos today, I felt so emotional, proud of going to be a mother, excited and happy to welcome our first baby to come. Looking back, it was my husband’s idea to have the special journey captured by a professional photographer for my pregnancy, delivery at hospital and new born and after we did quite a lot research, we are so pleased we chose Barefoot for a full package for these three special occasions and now we are so excited and look forward to the delivery day just around the corner. Thank you Sapphire, Alex and Barefoot.

    We have booked a photo shoot with Barefoot Dubai 2 weeks ago. Even before arriving to Dubai, Alex had contacted us by email and made sure that what is needed to be brought and what is going to be provided by him. The payment method was easy and convenient. We met Alex at the location of the shoot and he was so cooperative especially when dealing with our son (2 years old). Few days later, we have received the images and they were stunning. I would definitely recommend Barefoot Dubai to my family & friends due to the great experience we have enjoyed. We are looking forward for our next photo shoot with them soon.

    We loved the whole service, from booking the shoot to receiving the pictures. Alex & Sapphire were great with dealing with a baby. They gave us time for taking breaks, kept the baby calm, and brought great props to use. The pictures were gorgeous. We would recommend them to anyone!

  • cynthia

    Thank you for our beautiful pictures – what a treasure they are! Sapphire was brilliant to work with. Her calm friendly demeanour was terrific with the kids, so she was able to capture the funny, loving, free-spirited side of them that we know as parents. Our photos are the perfect balance of professional suggestions of a variety of shots, but still fully-capturing the spontaneity that comes with small children being barefoot on the beach – achieving just what we wanted. Also a huge ‘Thank you’ to Alex, for working so hard to get final images to us as per the deadline needed. We look forward to working with you again!

    It was such an amazing photoshoot! We were really tensed about how it would go with our newborn… But Alex and Sapphire made us all extremely comfortable. Thank you Alex for catering to all our requests! The pictures came out amazing and we will cherish them for a lifetime! I highly recommend them!! worth every penny.

  • marie

    Thank you very much for the beautiful pictures! We all really enjoyed the family shoot we had with Alex, it was a special moment. We found him very professional and patient. He always tried to satisfy the best our needs. I would highly recommend Barefoot to anyone who wants to capture maternity or family images.

  • Testimonials

    Thank you to Alex and Sapphire for capturing such amazing photos with such great imagination. They turned out great despite the most humid and windy afternoon ever! Ended up with a beautiful sunset background. Really quite special and over the moon with the results! Thanks guys for keeping my kids interested and capturing shots I had never envisaged. So pleased with the service from start to finish too.

  • ria

    Thank you for our lovely photos we absolutely love them!! We had so much fun taking the pictures on the Beach. Alex made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. We were allowed to bring our creativity to the shoot and Alex captured a very memorable time for us in Dubai. He is very professional, creative and open minded. I highly recommend Barefoot Dubai for capturing those priceless moments. We booked a 1 hour slot and received all our images in Art, Colour, Black & White and Sepia!

  • Testimonials

    If you have a baby then we would highly recommend the package where Barefoot come to your home and set up a studio. Our 7 month old baby James was far more relaxed being at home, which meant more smiles (helped by Alex’s never-ending ability to make James laugh!) and the convenience of being able to give him time out when necessary (a quick feed or nappy change). It meant James was happy throughout the shoot. Alex and Sapphire are also full of ideas for the shots – it’s clear that they have plenty of experience. But, most importantly of all, we loved the final result – the photos. The fact that you’re given the color, b/w and sepia photos is a really nice touch. We plan to do a beach photo shoot when James can walk.

    My family and I were very pleased with the way Alex and Sapphire managed the photoshoot. They were professional at their work, but at the same time very patient and warm towards my 8 day old nephew Aryan. Barefoot is exceptionally good at their work and I would happily recommend them.

    Thanks a lot Alex for the beautiful pictures. They are just amazing!!! Every single moment you have captured is just priceless for us. Highly recommended for everyone!!!! Can’t wait for the weather to get better for another photo shoot on the beach!

    We have been extremely satisfied with both the service and the quality of the photographs that Barefoot shot for us. We are unfamiliar with Dubai and got a little lost on our way to the photo-shoot, but the photographer (Sapphire) happily waited another half an hour and made sure that we got all the shots we wanted. Really good experience!

    Action speaks louder than words and that’s what we experienced during the photo-shoot of our twins with Alex and Sapphire. Amazing clicks are just the end product of how comfortable Alex made our little ones feel during the shoot and hats off to their patience working with twins. Go for Barefoot – Alex. Highly recommend!!!

It was a day to remember and Dato our 4-year-old son keeps pushing us to go for more photo shoots now, thanks to Alex! He was great with him and we are looking forward to meeting him in future!

    Having had a few family shoots in the past, this was by far the most relaxing and easy morning in the park. The kids had a great time, Barefootdubai really captured their personalities without them even realising. A great keepsake of those precious moments all for a very reasonable price. Amazing – one to recommend.

    We had great fun taking our pre-wedding photographs with Alex in Dubai… The slot was only 1 hour but honestly we had the best pictures and great memory, totally worth every penny… Highly recommend!!

  • abby

    Baring all when you are pregnant is a pretty scaring prospect, but Alex just makes you feel so relaxed and comfortable – he captured some really beautiful shots of the bump and my family and I really couldn’t be happier with the outcome.  Memories to really treasure forever.

  • kelly

    I was really self conscious at the start of my maternity shoot but Alex was so enthusiastic and encouraging and had lots of great ideas. It really made me feel amazing and the images he took were absolutely gorgeous.

    I really like the fact that you give the hi-res pictures as a download link as part of the deal I’ve heard that other photographers only give you one print.

  • testmonial-img-03

    A relaxed and casual morning, and the resulting pictures are great!
    They are now huge canvases on our walls and look so good.
