Underwater Maternity Photography

Absolutely loved my underwater maternity photo shoot. I was a little nervous thinking i might look silly in the photos but they are the opposite, they are stunning and the water and light just adds such beautiful detail to the photos.


One thing is for sure, each and every underwater maternity photoshoot is completely unique. With so many natural elements involved, it’s a wonderful chance to create something special just for you.

Lisa’s Ocean Photoshoot

“Having an underwater maternity photoshoot was Rachel’s idea, and let me tell you, every pregnant woman should have this experience!! I was blown away by her creativity and it was honestly the most fun I’ve had in ages. She captured my son’s first birthday, this pregnancy, and now I can’t wait for her to do our newborn photos in a couple of weeks. We have truly found the perfect person to capture our family milestones. 

At 37 weeks pregnant, the water made me feel wonderfully weightless, and I felt like a kid again. Rachel made me feel comfortable in front of the camera, was patient with my limited lung capacity and let me go at my own pace.

I was right to trust her judgement and vision. The photos speak for themselves – they’re spectacular! She somehow managed to make me look graceful, ethereal and serenely beautiful. They capture my bump and curved so perfectly, I actually started crying halfway through the viewing because I love them so much. And the experience itself – she is such a pleasure to work with. 

If you’re pregnant, do yourself a favour. Book an underwater maternity photoshoot with Rachel.”

Olivia’s Pool Photoshoot

Wondering why these two photos look different? Good question!

In the first one, it was actually raining! Take a closer look at the amazing texture on the water surface. The second one was sunny, which gives boosts to the colours.

Do I have to be able to swim?

Yes. You will need to be able to swim. 🙂

The more, the merrier! I am always happy to personalise your photoshoot. Let’s chat about what you would love to do to make sure it’s safe for everyone involved.

Is Underwater Maternity Photography safe?

Safety is my utmost priority. I am a qualified scuba diver, I have a background in surf lifesaving and understanding the ocean. I have a risk management plan and hold current first aid and CPR certificates. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any and all questions about safety. I would want you to feel comfortable.
