This is a one of a kind Underwater Photography Maternity Shoot. If you are thinking of doing a creative shoot underwater, the talented Johannesburg based, Ilse Moore is the go to person She creatively entitled the shoot ‘Do you feel what I feel’. The mommy to be’s make-up was done by
Ophelia Paisley Make Up Artistry.
‘As a fellow lover of the ethereal and surreal underwater world, Natalie embraced the quietness of the water and allowed herself to get lost in surroundings so closely resembling the surroundings of her unborn child. With that in mind we went with a beautiful, but moody and surreal feel. We were hoping for something that might describe a metaphorical understanding between Natalie and her unborn daughter, an ethereal water cocoon perhaps…
Watching Natalie move slowly and gracefully under the water was not only incredible to witness, but I was excited by her peaceful, goddess-like expressions. I have always loved doing maternity shoots, there’s a beautiful tenderness and warmth that surrounds the mother that is hard to describe… This was just like it.’
