Dreamy Orlando Underwater Maternity Session
I absolutely love maternity sessions! There is something so magical about a growing child and the newness of life. All the endless opportunities on the horizon. It's just so beautiful to me. Through my lens, I see such beauty in the mother preparing for the arrival of their new bundle of joy.
I was asked to do a lifestyle maternity session when my expectant momma was going to be in Orlando. She asked if I would consider doing an underwater maternity session. Would I consider? I nearly jumped! Absolutely!!! This idea made my heart sing. I could not wait. I counted the days.
The day of the shoot I could not be more excited! Preparation for these types of shoots takes time, specialty gear, and planning. I was prepared. I had everything set up, she changed and we got in the water. We laughed and created. Laughed and created. We were having so much fun! And the glorious light??? Well, the light was cascading all around her and truly, she looked like an angel. After we captured several gorgeous images of her, I thought we should get soon-to-be big sis in the water. So many precious quiet moments. What a special memory we were creating.
After we wrapped, I couldn't get the pictures loaded on my computer fast enough. The pictures were magic! With underwater lifestyle maternity sessions the post process editing is labor intensive. Water casts so much blue color that it takes about 40 minutes per image to bring the colors back to where they need to be. After I, Erika Reiner Photography, finished each image I was over the moon excited to share the images with her. We had created timeless art.
She was self conscious about how she may look. However, one of my goals is to show women who I see them to be. In this case, angelic, strong, loving, hopeful, and nurturing. She saw this in herself through the art we created.
She was blown away! We are both in love with the art we made. I am so IN LOVE with shooting underwater maternity sessions!
At Erika Reiner Photography, I invest in who you are first and then what we will create second. I spend the time it takes to be educated so that I can execute my artistic vision for you. I will guide and coach you along the way. And...we may laugh a good bit along the way.
