Underwater Photo Shoots

Photo Shoot Policies
  • Sitting Fee must be paid at the time appointment is made.
  • Sitting Fee is non-refundable.
  • The sitting time is 20 minutes for up to 2 children, and 40 minutes for 3 or more children from the same family.  Shoots with siblings will receive a combination of both individual and group photos.
  • Please take time to practice before the shoot so you may have the best possible photots to choose from.
  • Approximately 1-2 weeks after the photo shoot, you will receive an email with a link to view your photo session.
Tips to Remember for Picture Day!
  • Child must be comfortable making a minimum of 6-8 underwater submersions.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your sitting time and be ready to go.
  • One adult must be in the water to help with the child; however does not need to be in the photo.  Some children find strangers wearing a diving mask and holding a big camera intimidating.  Come to the photoshoot prepareted to get in the water.  Our experience shows that this is extremely helpful to get the best photos possible.  We reccomend that if your child is in lessons with a parent that the parent who usually brings them is the one in the water with them for the shoot.
  • For parents in the photos, please remove your contact lenses.
  • Hair looks best loose so it can flow freely in the water.
  • Don't forget your waterproof mascara!
  • Remove temporary tattoos and/or chipped nail polish.
  • Practice with your child a few days before the shoot. For the best picture, practice eyes open underwater (as goggles will not look as good in photos) and practice not blowing bubbles; beginning of bath time is a good way to practice now that backyard pools are cold. Do have eyes open, look natural, relax and SMILE.
  • Be creative and have fun!  Feel free to bring costumes and multiple outift options for your children.
