Underwater Maternity

A Maternity Shoot with a difference: This is Underwater Maternity.

Unlike on land, you will be able to move into positions and float freely, capturing unique images of this special time in your life.

The best time during your pregnancy to attend an underwater maternity shoot is 26-34 weeks when your tummy is nice and round. Ideally your tummy should be big enough to make an impact in the pictures but not so big that you are uncomfortable or at risk of a water birth in the pool.

Some props and costumes are provided, as well as chiffon in various colours to drape around yourself. We have a selection of beautiful flowing dresses that can be used during your photo shoot, or you are welcome to bring your own.

We have underwater backgrounds in black and blue to achieve different looks in the photographs. 

For the best results you should be confident in water and be a good swimmer. You should also practice before the photo shoot as you will be more buoyant in the water than before you were pregnant. Practice your facial expressions underwater and practice opening your eyes too.

A professional make-up artist can be arranged at an additional cost.
