All about the Photo Shoot
The sessions are held in the warm waters of Kingsley School Pool with a professional and experienced underwater photographer using highly specialized equipment (see www.underwater-art.co.uk).
In a 30-minute time slot, a small group of parents and babies will experience being photographed above and below the water. You will have a specially trained Bubble Babies instructor submerging the babies with the latest top spec photographic equipment ensuring that 4 to 6 images are captured per second. This means that a substantial gallery of photos builds up with even one submersion and babies can relax and enjoy rests before choosing to be photographed again.
You may also opt to have family photos all together: Baby, Siblings, Mum and Dad as well!
We endeavour to make our photo shoots happy and relaxed occasions in which the well-being of the babies is of the uppermost importance. Try to keep everything as normal and calm as possible with the adult who normally swims with baby coming into the pool for the photo shoot (don’t forget your costume!).
Can my friend bring her baby for a photo?
The underwater photo shoots are open to everybody but we do insist that all babies must have experienced a swimming course involving a gradual and progressive programme of underwater work so that they are physically and mentally ready for the event.
There is a fixed cost of £30 for attending the shoot with £10 extra for siblings. This is unfortunately strictly non-refundable as our costs for pool hire, the photographer etc remain the same regardless of whether or not you are able to attend on the day or how good the resulting photos turn out to be. We can, however, offer a free re-shoot at the next underwater photo session. The booking fee does not cover the cost of photographs.

You may discuss further editing with the photographer and after ordering your images, they will be sent to you within 7 working days.
