These Extraordinary Underwater Maternity Photos Redefine Pregnancy Pictures
There's no shortage of options when it comes to maternity photos, but in the end, they all pretty much look the same — pregnant woman cradling her burgeoning belly (sometimes clothed, often not) with a knowing look in her eye. But sometimes a photographer and his subject take it one step further — and one step wetter.
We've seen underwater maternity photos before — Beyoncé just released her maternity photos, which include a few underwater snaps — but nothing prepared us for the beauty and artistry of Adam Opris's portraits. The Palm Beach, FL-based photographer told us:
"I grew up in South Florida in the ocean, and being in the water has always been second nature for me. As my wedding photography business progressed, I always loved how the brides that I captured came to me for their maternity pictures after they got pregnant. I am always looking to push the envelope with my photography, and when I saw underwater photos from around the world, I realized that I could bring clients into this underwater world. After a few test shoots, I realized that the options underwater are limitless."
Opris went on to test those limits with some of the most stunning maternity photos we've ever seen. Read on to see them, and get the story behind the process.
