Maternity sessions are a personal moment in a mother life. I respect the fact that most of my clients do not want there images plastered all over the internet for advertising my photography. However, once in a blue moon I get the okay to use an image like this. Underwater Maternity photos are a tad bit tricky like most captures in the water. Underwater maternity photos take a significant amount of time for preparation of the mother to pose in the optimal positions. Like most underwater modeling, getting and staying in position is a challenge. By adding a 18 foot long underwater drape adds to the dimension of the images but usually requires a few extra helping hand for the underwater maternity photograph . These photographs of the pregnant mother are unique and will be cherished for a lifetime.
Finlay getting around to testing the parachute dress out in the water. It needs a few tweaks for open water but it will flow well at Stuarts Cove next spring. Sharks, Underwater models, and long flowing gowns will make for a dramatic capture. I’m guessing it will take a team of 6 divers to pull this off safely in open water and a skilled underwater model.
When I was first asked to do KaiLee’s underwater maternity photos I was a bit concerned about how the water might affect the unborn child. The big one was the pressure of the water going to induce labor in a 36 week pregnancy? The other was would the mother holding her breath have a negative affect on the baby? So I set up a few meetings with a couple of OB physicians in town to see what they had to say. They pretty much told me the baby would extract oxygen form the mother no matter what. It might affect the mothers ability to holding her breath but the baby would be fine. If it did induce labor, unlikely, the baby was going to be coming out very soon anyway. So with that information in hand, I ventured into the realm of underwater maternity photos. A little tricky but defiantly worth the energy and time. Interesting question here, would a pregnant woman underwater be considered a submarine?
