Underwater Mermaid Photos | Denver Photographer
These magical underwater mermaid photos from our shoot in Denver were so much fun to create.
I had a wonderful time working with Elizabeth Worth and makeup artist Marisa Garcia on this underwater mermaid photoshoot. Marisa achieved a beautiful, natural makeup look that stayed on through all of our pool adventures, and Elizabeth brought her custom made mermaid tail for a few shots. I have no actual use for a mermaid tail myself, and am not sure where I would ever wear it – but now I really want one! They are so beautiful and realistic looking, and watching Elizabeth swim in her tail was actually magical. (See video at the end of this post!)
I love shooting in the pool because for me it’s the perfect combination of gentle and rebellious. The simple fact that we are going underwater and creating photos that probably would be easier to do on dry land is so fun for me. I am dreaming up all sorts of props and items I can add to the pool and see what they do. There is a big part of me that loves the challenge. However, when I’m floating in the water there is something really calm and relaxing about. When we duck under the surface, I don’t have the ability to talk or do much other than observe and capture. Of course I’ll give direction and make a game plan with my subjects when we both re-surface, but I like that moment when I can just see what happens underwater. I have a few more underwater shoots coming up soon, and I can’t wait to share more!
