Kellyn | Underwater Mermaid

When the need to be a mermaid is so strong, things will fall into place no matter what! That’s absolutely what happened for Kellyn’s mermaid shoot and I’m so glad all those things fell into place so beautifully! At the beginning of the year, I had planned a week in Durban for mermaid shoots. Suddenly, things went wonky and I was no longer able to make it. To top it all off, there was the most insane storm and flooding on the dates I would have been there, so who knows if I would have even been made to do any shoots! When I broke the unfortunate news to Kellyn that I wasn’t able to make it, she said she’d be in Joburg just a few days after her shoot date. Well, more like a 2 hour drive from the pool, but she was more than determined to get her mermaid shoot! Wow! So things came together and boom, suddenly I was able to photograph her as a mermaid! I was absolutely ecstatic! And the shoot went absolutely brilliantly, Kellyn was simply stunning under the water, and had the most amazing mermaid hair! I loved every minute of it!

Thank you Kellyn for your amazing determination, driving all the way to me, and making things happen – you proved it was totally worth it and you were fabulous! ♥ Thank you to Angie from Composure Hair & Makeup Artistry for her simply stunning makeup!
