What they’re saying

Rachel Testi Circle

The shoot was fantastic! Sapphire is incredible – she has such patience and gentle energy that puts the kids at ease and allows us to relax and express ourselves as a family. We honestly enjoy spending time with her.Sapphire even recommended a restaurant for dinner, where we ended our night happily as a family. It all felt more like a family outing with a friend than a photo shoot. Maybe that’s how photo shoots should feel! WOW – the images are incredible!!! My goodness these are fantastic. Rachel

Abeer Testi Circle

We had an AMAZING experience with Barefoot Dubai. We wanted to have some great memories captured with our children. They gave us great images. Our session was so fun and easy, such patience with Latifa and Saud. Barefoot gave us the best images i ever had for my kids. I just regret i never knew about them before. Abeer

We wanted to do something really special for our daughter’s first birthday and contacted numerous agencies and photographers as part of our research. Barefoot Dubai’s information, professionalism, experience and reasonable price, meant that we chose the cake smash package at their studio. The photographer and her assistant were great: well prepared and organised and very professional. Above all, and most importantly, they were very patient, very engaging and very comfortable working with babies which immediately put us at ease. The shoot went well, with good use of props and changes in scenarios to ensure enough images were captured for the final ‘story’ album. A day after the shoot we received 1 teaser photo which was an exciting prelude to receiving the final product. Although we were told it would take 2 weeks for the final images to be ready, we actually received them 4 working days later! Barefoot sends a link with a password so unless you’re living in the 70’s without internet connection, you can download your photos without ever leaving your house. The images were beautiful and as promised, we were given multiple versions: low res, high res, vibrant colour, monochrome and vintage, all without those annoying watermarks that other companies seem to insist on inserting. The after-sales and after-shoot care was great and they were really helpful with our questions even after the shoot had been delivered. I have no hesitation in recommending Barefoot Dubai to capture your little one’s special day. Kaiser and Yung

Tarnim Testi Circle

OH MY GOD!!!! The pictures are so so amazing. Thank you so much to all of you for giving us these beautiful memories, especially Sapphire who was absolutely amazing in getting Aayan comfortable and getting the right shots from him. She and Ruth were very patient and understanding not only with him but also with both of us as well. I am so glad we chose you to capture this special occasion for us. I love the fact that all the pics are so natural and in the moment and Sapphire has managed to capture my sons innocence and mischief beautifully well. My only regret is that I didn’t find you guys earlier. But you will definitely be seeing much more of us in the future. Thanks once again. Tarnim

Yvonne Testi Circle

A photo shoot with the Barefoot team should be on every woman’s bucket list! The team are SO professional and so good at what they do.

Nida Testi Circle

We had an amazing experience with Barefoot Dubai. We were leaving Dubai and wanted to have some memories captured. And they gave us exactly what we wanted. Sapphire made our session fun and relaxed and she was so patient with our son. So if you are hiring Barefoot Dubai then just relax as they are going to take care of your pictures well, something you will cherish for years to come. Nida

Rana Testi Circle

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

The pictures turned out amazing and we can’t wait to have the cake smash shoot with you when she turns one. Rana

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! Vivek

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! Ana

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. Mashael
