I took up underwater photography about 6 years ago as I wanted a way to share what I see when your baby/child is swimming under water, with their eyes wide open and looking as natural and beautiful as we know they already are.
These photos are very unique and precious and captures a magical time of your baby/child’s swimming memories.
You as a parent know how hard it is to get that “fantastic” photograph of your special person and it’s not that easy. Then add in a 70kg weight belt (as I can’t stay at the bottom of the pool) a camera and casing with 2 external flash units that weighs a ton, hold my breath, get my heart rate calm, steady hands and then wait for a little person to swim by my lens in a split second and, hopefully the water clarity is good too, this is all a little tricky, but so worth it for that PHOTOGRAPH.
If we are lucky, we may have the perfect shots during the first submersion, otherwise we shall try a few more times or depending on the little swimmer.
At this stage I may have taken anywhere up to 250 photographs of your swimmers, I then cypher through them, pick out the 5 best ones and edit them if required.
Your photos are then put onto a USB for your use.
Costs vary but start at £ 50.00, however you can request sibling shots, family shots, a kiss under water, as long as everyone is happy and contented, we can try different angles, the cost for these increase a little.
The Under Water Photography shoots are on a dedicated day and payment is made at the time of booking.
Both of my girls started swimming lessons with Kim at the age of 5 months. Both are able to swim without any aid, thanks to her patience and skill. Kim knows when to support them, and when to push them, because they need it! They always leave swimming lessons with a smile.
After 5 years and 2 children I regard Kim as part of the family! She has encouraged and supported my little ones through the highs and lows of learning to swim. She has made me feel happy and welcome as both a frightened new mum and as a old time regular. Her techniques are caring yet firm and she has been the major factor in creating two confident little aqua-babes who just adore the water. I can not thank or recommend Kim enough.
