What they’re saying


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! Nilufar

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


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. Diana

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! Claudia


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. Sophia

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! Areej


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! Priscilla


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!! S.A. and J.K.


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! Wendy

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


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. Noor & Ali


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. Gabrielle


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! Thushara


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. Kathie


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. Ahmed
