If you spend a day in a pool with 2 lovely models and a talented MUA Kim Gainer, can you call what you do work? YES, it’s harder then you think. Most are not experienced underwater models or free divers, some don’t even swim.
This was my third time working underwater with model Vettriano. We shared a few laughs with “new to underwater” model Che about her first attempt. The allure for these models is to add something unique to their portfolios. So Che wanted to try. Her 5’11” frame made working in the deeper end a cinch. In the beginning, she had difficulty, puffing out her cheeks when holding her breathe. She also forgot that she couldn’t wipe the water from her eyes because of the make-up. Kim was on hand for touch ups. She created tropical fish looks for the eyes. The colors popped because of Che’s beautiful skin tone.
I used a royal-ish blue satin for the backdrop.

Che started to feel more comfortable towards the end of our session. She even slipped in a smile. And is up for another shoot.
Praying for sunny days so I can schedule more models…
