Our intention at Barefoot has always been to help you capture beautiful images, unguarded moments, but not with high prices or in a stuffy studio environment.

Maternity

We will come to your home or meet you at an agreed location, beach or park and create some beautiful and creative images, that you can cherish forever. We create elegant and creative images of this special time. It is truly an honor to be able to preserve memories for you at this exceptional moment. This is the time a woman is at her most beautiful. Her body in a sense becomes more hers and less hers. As pregnancy/maternity photographers we see the pregnant body as a blossoming sculptural form, perfect for the camera lens.

Newborn

Newborn shoots have become quite popular – there’s a lot of photographers doing them! But, after having done many of them, we feel we do them a little better, do them a little different. Other photographers make you come to their studio, other photographers don’t like mum and dad in the room. The Barefoot way: We come to your home and we insist on at least mum being very close, new babies need regular snuggles. Other photographers insist on only photographing the baby. The Barefoot way: we have no concerns with doing some shots of the family with the new baby. Living in Dubai – this is often one of the only chances to photograph family that has flown in to help with the new arrival. Other photographers will squish and push your new baby into uncomfortable positions. The Barefoot way: we take a more natural and gentle approach to the images.
