Rachieda | Mermaid

There is something incredibly humbling and amazing when someone is happy to drive a great distance just for you to turn them into a mermaid! Honestly, it blows my mind! Rachieda contacted me a while ago asking for a mermaid portrait session – and then I had such awful technology and email issues that I lost her emails and email address! Thankfully, she found me again and sent me a message, and we got her mermaid shoot on track! She drove many hundreds of km’s for her shoot! However, the first big rain of the summer season hit the day before, adding about 40mm of cold water to the pool, making it a lot fresher than it had been in the week. Rachieda bravely pushed through and totally owned her shoot and looked amazing.

Thank you so much for travelling so far for this shoot, for being such an amazing sport and for braving that rather chilly water! You are an absolute champion! 🙂 Thank you once more to the best mermaid makeup artist around, the talented Sigi – I’d be lost without you! The tail Rachieda is wearing is from Two Oceans Mermaid Tails – check them out!
