Summer is here in Arizona! It’s supposed to be 118 degrees this weekend…. that means it is time for me to do underwater sessions, because that’s the only place outside us Arizonans can go without vaporizing instantly!

Underwater photography is a challenge for both the photographer and the model, though I think the model has it tougher. Water introduces all sorts of interesting and uncontrollable variables, ones that as a photographer, I can only attempt to control. Those uncontrollable variables is what makes underwater photography so interesting and unique and for me, one of my favorite things to shoot. You just can’t get into the water with a whole lot of expectations of how a certain pose will go because sometimes the water has different ideas.

Ashlee is one of my senior models for the 2014 class of Red Mountain High School and you will certainly see more of her on this blog once it cools down to temperatures that won’t char us on contact 🙂 But in the meantime, enjoy Ashlee’s beauty in her underwater softball senior photos (and a few above water shots).

Ashlee, you rock!

Contact me by emailing me if you are interested in some awesome photos like these for your senior photos!

We can schedule a two part session, one underwater for fun, unique photos I can guarantee no one else will have anything like, and ones above water for a more “traditional” but still cool look. My session fee is $100 for either an above water or underwater session and includes Facebook images to share. Know Ashlee? Mention her to receive something special and help Ashlee out as well 🙂
