Barefoot Birth Shoot
“Of all the photos of my son following his birth, my favourite is a grainy iphone snap capturing the moment I first saw him. It’s hard to make out and I wish I had more.”
At Barefoot Dubai, we’ve heard comments like this many times on our newborn shoots. According to a poll by parenting website BabyCentre UK, one fifth of all mothers would consider, or have already booked a professional birth photographer.
So the Barefoot Birth Shoot is born, give us a call to talk it through, or contact us to book and we can talk through timings with you.
We document the birth quietly and unobtrusively. Capturing the raw strength and emotion of labor, delivery, and the first few beautiful moments of your little one’s life.
Even bigger than your wedding day, the birth of a child evokes unbelievable emotions and it’s only
natural to want the memories preserved forever.
We will capture the intensity of feeling in the room; the touches, the encouragement and the small details which get forgotten. The front page of the newspaper, the time on the clock when the baby was born, that first look on a fathers face when he sees his daughter, the glances between parents in those first few moments. These are not stomach churning or gory, they are tear jerking in their intimacy: babies
placed on their mother’s chest, a father’s clumsy first embrace with his infant.
Our whole Barefoot ethos is epitomised in this lovely shoot, we will create beautiful, elegant and creative images, and you won’t even know we are there.
Many mothers don’t remember much about their births – it’s an overwhelming experience and women naturally draw into themselves. Our images help women to understand and feel proud of the experience, documenting the wonder of birth.
“I can’t put into words what a difference it made having pictures. It changed my outlook on the whole birthing experience and I love looking back on those first moments to see how far we have come as a family. From all the images we have since our miracle was born, it’s the images from that day that mean so so much to me!”
A professional photographer takes the pressure off partners who are emotionally caught up in the moment and medical staff who have a job to do. Even with the advancement of mobile phones and DSLR
cameras, the images are never the same as those taken by a professional.

We will spend a precious hour with you, capturing those amazing first special moments.
Barefoot presence – Calm and quiet by nature, we will work very discreetly so as not to disturb the intimacy between you and your partner, nor the process of birth itself. Unobtrusive, we will quietly disappear into the background. We do not use flash photography.
Your images – We will tell your story with respect and integrity. We capture the mood in the room, the supportive and caring relationship between you and your partner, your strength as a birthing mother, all the emotions and wonderful first moments after your baby is born, as well as the small details that help to tell your unique birth story. Please be assured that we use discretion when taking and processing your images to ensure that the images you receive are heartfelt and tasteful.
Confidentiality and Privacy – We appreciate that labour and birth is a very private moment between you and your partner. Your images will be only seen and processed by our female Barefoot team and will not be shared with anybody.
