Underwater Pregnancy Photos: Ga Ga or Gag?

We've recently become converts when it comes to pregnancy photo shoots, but when San Francisco-area photographer Erena Shimoda told us about her maternity specialty — underwater photography — we didn't quite know what to think of it. Your baby spends nine months surrounded by fluid, so we can kind of see the connection, and yes, Erena's photography (shown above) is pretty amazing, but even she admits it can be a struggle to get moms-to-be to relax in the water. "It is a huge challenge to make them feel comfortable, look natural, show their beauty, and do all fun poses all at once!" the photographer says. "My goal is to see all my clients gain confidence and smile as they hold their final image in their hands."

As you can see, the results are lovely, but would you hop in the water for a pregnancy shoot? Weigh in below!
