There are times in the year that shooting underwater proves almost impossible, especially when you're dealing with late third trimester pregnancies and you're on a time crunch.

The waves grew big on the week of our scheduled shoot, so I found myself driving around the island in search of a clear spot to shoot this mama's session at. Not one single spot had great visibility that day.

We decided to wait for a break in the large swells coming in that week. Our patience paid off! There was literally a 5 hour break in between swells and we met early morning before the next big swell rolled in. The water was as clear as glass and this mama ROCKED her sessions with graceful dives.
