Emma | Mermaid

On a not-so-sunny morning, Emma kindly and so bravely donned a fabric tail and modelled like a true mermaid for my SAWP Instagram Takeover earlier this year. I wanted to do a shoot in the morning, while uploading photos to Instagram, and then upload photos from this shoot in the evening as the grande finale. It was a lot tougher than I’d imagined, but so worth it!

Of course, Emma made my job of photographing a lot easier – she is just such a natural underwater! We had such fun with this shoot, and I’d hoped to get some amazing video but my little Muvi decided not to record 80% of the shoot! Sigh! Either way, these shots are some of my favourite mermaid shots so far – and I couldn’t have asked for better lighting underwater!
