Family Photography in Dubai: Exploring the Captivating Charm of Bastakiya and Al Fahidi

As a family photographer in Dubai dedicated to providing a unique experience to you and your family, I’m so excited to guide you through the hidden gems of Al Fahidi and Bastakiya! This is where the beautiful architecture will transport you to the past and will definitely provide you with beautiful backdrops for your family photos. Dubai is famous for its futuristic, modern skyscrapers so when you step out into the courtyards of this old neighborhood, that’s when you will feel the magic all around you!

With its narrow alleys, traditional architecture, and wind towers, Bastakiya and Al Fahidi take you on a time travel adventure. With the restored houses, charming wooden doors, and elaborate walls all around you, a sense of nostalgia will take root. Imagine capturing moments of love, connection, and just pure joy in the quiet courtyards. It really truly is an escape from the modern world and the perfect setting for memorable family photos!

Don’t just take my word for it though! I’ve picked out a bunch of client galleries that have been taken in these neighborhoods, so you can get a glimpse of the fantastic spots they’ve been to. Just click the links and you’ll be transported to Old Dubai:

Scheherazade Photography

Hey, I'm Scheherazade Shahid and I am a licensed family, maternity and newborn photographer based in Dubai. I love adventure, scary rides and taking photos of little humans. My lifelong wish is to jump out of an airplane with a parachute on my back but alas I still need to loose a couple of pounds to be able to qualify for that ride 😭
