Underwater Photography Texas

Being part of the underwater photography Texas community, for which there are very few of us so I’m learning, has been such a fun adventure the last couple of years.  What is likely one of my favorite parts of underwater kids photography is possibly a curse for the masses.  So much of the outcome of underwater images relies on a variety of things.  Lighting being one of the largest variables.  What I realized this last season was how different light is in the summer months compare to the Spring and Fall months.  Huge variations in the look and feel of the images. It’s still such a learning process for me. Even though I’ve shot so many underwater photo sessions than I can count, with each and every one, I feel like I learn something new.  One thing that will surprise most is that 99% of my images are shot in ONE, that is right, ONE pool.  Yet in that one pool, I have gotten a huge gamete of different light and color. This would drive many photographers crazy, not being fully able to control the outcome of every image, but for me, I love the bit of unknown and celebrate it. This offers my clients a very nice variety in their gallery, but nothing too wonky of course.  🙂

I have soooo many underwater images still waiting to be blogged, but hopefully I will be caught up soon….maybe by next year…but don’t hold your breath. hahaha.

I’m a wee bit late posting so many sessions.  What’s new? ha!  It’s actually pretty fun when I get to look at sessions from the not to distant past.  I get to experience them like they are new again.  It’s likely similar to how my clients feel when they see their images over the course of time.  It makes me think of our son and now I can put certain toys away for a while, then bring them back out months later and how excited he is for them as if they are brand new.  You have likely experienced this with your kids too.  <3

This is one of my favorite clients.  Maybe it’s because I’ve know her and her wonderful parents since she was only a couple weeks old. How the time flies.  She is so big now and full of so much personality and sweetness! She’s also a little fish in the water.  It was so exciting to see her underwater.  She is so cute!! Love this gal!

Our little guy finally put his head under…I ran inside to grab my camera…which contrary to what you may think I really don’t get my camera out often enough outside of work. Maybe because by the time I was a mom…my business was pretty established and ‘work’ and ‘play’ we’re so very separate things. Like my cousin who was a pro chef for years who had said he never cooked at home…yep, I get it now. But anyways…occasionally will go against my laziness and grab my big camera…and so glad I did because this was over a week ago and in perfect two year old form…he’s not done it again. So happy I caught him going under a couple of times on this particular day…for these few minutes that it lasted.

Bumps and Bubbles | Underwater Maternity Photos

It has been awhile since I’ve spotlighted some gorgeous underwater maternity photos!  With (hopefully) beautiful weather here and Spring Break starting pretty much NOW, I figured this was the perfect time to break out some incredible images from an awesome session.  In most of my posts, I use a collage to display session photos, but these are so unique that I want to showcase them individually.  You won’t find many photographers in our area doing underwater maternity photos, but I absolutely LOVE them!  There are just so many interesting angles and ways of capturing light, colors and the maternal form underwater!  See for yourself!

Immersed | Woodlands Underwater Photographer

Although it is officially fall now (though you wouldn’t know it by the temperatures that still get into the 90s some days!), I just had to share some of these amazing underwater maternity shots!  If you know much (or even a little) about me, you’re probably aware that I adore maternity photos as well as underwater photography.  The combination of the two is just perfection!  There aren’t sufficient words for me to describe how beautiful I think an expectant mamma looks being photographed underwater.  There’s something about one who is giving life being surrounded by life-giving water…it’s like poetic photography.  To think of her child inside her being completely surrounded and sustained by her body’s water while she is immersed in water as well…it’s just so gorgeous and symbolic!

This lovely mamma was the perfect model for underwater maternity photography!  She looks so effortless, weightless and graceful in all of her shots…a feat not so easily accomplished when so very pregnant (or even when not pregnant for many!).  I loved this photo shoot and the resulting pictures so much!
