Mermaiding Maternity Session | North Shore of Oahu Underwater Photographer

This session was very special to me and my client because her husband had been deployed for most of her pregnancy, and would only return a couple of weeks before her due date. 

Afraid that her husband might not make it back on time even for maternity pictures, we decided to do a mommy and me maternity session to document the pregnancy and we also jumped in the water for some amazing underwater shots of mom.

This story has a happy ending though, because dad ended up coming home much sooner than expected! And we also did another shoot with the whole family but that will have its own story and post here.

Make sure to scroll all the way down to see one of the most graceful moms to be I've ever photographer underwater. It was like she was an underwater ballerina and we made some pretty amazing art together!
