Underwater Maternity Photography with an Underwater Fashion Photography flare (Jennifer Erickson)

It has been  a year and a half, but I am finally revealing Jennifer’s first Underwater Maternity Photography shoot to the world! Amazingly she was due to deliver the week of the shoot. Everything worked out perfectly and we were able to do two Underwater Maternity sessions before she had her baby.  I can not tell you how hard it is to pull of these poses. I put Jennifer (and baby)through the paces on this session. Through it all Jennifer was just brilliant.  Jennifer is also a Photographer (click here to see her work) and I think that helped.  She was willing to push herself to the limit to get the shot and it paid off huge as you will see!
