your Questions about
Underwater Photoshoots

My purpose-built private underwater studio is near the Noosa River in Queensland (Australia). My clients come here from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and even from interstate. Noosa is a world famous seaside/beach resort, and well-worth the journey.

I’m not the cheapest photographer. My pricing reflects a commitment to delivering a premium experience and unparalleled quality, giving you a transformational journey that surpasses what’s offered by lower-priced options.

Pricing is in two parts:

A) Your Photoshoot Experience. The journey starts with an unforgettable underwater photoshoot day, a memory-making extraordinary adventure for you and those you love. The day is custom designed for you, and the team take care of every last detail. Your photoshoot experience is priced at $790 (+$200 surcharge April-October).

B) Your Images and Artwork. A true beginning-to-end journey, your experience doesn’t stop on photoshoot day. The next step is choosing which images you’d like to purchase. As a guideline, clients typically start their investment at around $2600. See my Products & Price Guide to get an overview of image pricing.

As long as you’re not terrified of the water, you’ll be absolutely fine! I’ve worked with adults who can’t swim, and you’d never know it when looking at their beautiful underwater portraits. (I didn’t learn to swim until I was 22, so I know how it feels to not be a natural water baby.)

Children need to have solid water skills and be under the supervision of a parent.

Toddlers need to have done some infant swim lessons, be comfortable in the water, and be held by a parent at all times.

Only a few seconds at a time, with plenty of rest in between.

I coach you with breathing techniques, and work with you at your own pace. The aim is to have you as relaxed as possible, and to have fun along the waythis is how your portraits end up looking so effortless.

What often happens, as you become more comfortable during your photoshoot, is that you’ll be able to stay underwater for longer and longer… you’ll probably surprise yourself!

Not at all. Keeping your eyes closed is perfectly fine and can even add to the dreamy, ethereal quality of your portraits.

All ages! From the boundless enthusiasm of an 18-month-old toddler girl, to the vitality of an 80-year-old gentleman, and pretty much every age in between, I’ve had the privilege of working with remarkable clients of all ages. So, whether you’re just starting life’s adventures or well into your journey, you’re never too old or too young to dive into the magic of creating captivating underwater portraits.

Some parents do feel a bit apprehensive, and I completely understand. But please don’t worry. My goal is to create a calm, enjoyable environment for everyone. We’ll pace the shoot to suit your little ones, using playful techniques and gentle encouragement to help them feel at ease. Plus, my pool area includes a comfy veranda and a lush lawn where kids can take a time out if needed. And remember, there’s no rushing or clock-watching on your photoshoot day—we’ll take all the time your family needs to create those gorgeous images.

The pool has three flat levels: 0.4m, 1.2m, 2.4m. This offers endless creative freedom. It also means you always have the option to safely stand on the bottom, which is nice and safe for kids and non-swimmers.

Let me show you that you are. I’ll make sure your light shines in front of the camera. I know how to highlight and capture your most flattering angles and features. And I see the beauty in you that you don’t yet see yourself. So don’t worry about looking perfect, let me take care of that.

As a woman, I totally get it. But here’s the thing: underwater photography is perfect for every body. The water provides a supportive and flattering environment, naturally enhancing your best features and gently masking what you might feel are imperfections. Plus, the way light dances through the water gives your skin a smooth, glowing look.

I’ll be there to personally fine-tune poses, offer encouragement, and adjust settings to match your style and comfort. My hands-on approach and personal attention really bring out the best in you, transforming your photoshoot into a truly empowering and beautiful experience.

And don’t forget—the wonderful women in my portfolio? They’re women just like you, everyday heroes. With me guiding the lens, we’re set to showcase the most beautiful you.

While every woman deserves to have stunning portraits of herself, the underwater experience is about more than the photos; it’s also about experiencing a moment of liberation and seeing your inherent beauty through a new lens.

The best part? It’s when my clients see their photos and gasp, “I can’t believe that’s me!” This moment of awe and self-recognition is the true magic of what we’ll create together.

The photoshoots are on weekdays.

As long as needed, but generally your photoshoot experience begins first thing in the morning and you’ll be with me until early afternoon, or so. I limit my schedule to one photoshoot per day, and I don’t set any fixed session duration. Why? So you get the attention you deserve, and you never feel rushed. We all have nerves in front of the camera, that’s natural. And none of my new clients have ever done an underwater shoot before. Feeling comfortable and confident while becoming familiar with the underwater process might come quickly to you… or it might take a bit of time. I give you that time, and the results are worth it.

I sure do! You’ll have unlimited access to my studio’s vast wardrobe of ladies dresses, skirts, wraps… in endless colours to mix and match. All the fabrics were chosen for the dreamy way they move underwater.

Let me take care of that for you. My on-site professional makeup artist will get you camera-ready with natural-looking makeup that will stay put in the water. This service is included with your session fee 🙂

Want to combine a self-love session with a family shoot? Or a sisters shoot with individual self-love photos? Or any other combo you can dream up? Absolutely, I encourage it 🙂

Yes, I photograph nudes, implied nudes, and boudoir/lingerie. The studio team is all female.

It’s completely private and shielded from any outside view. My luxurious pool is surrounded by fences and tall native trees for a peaceful, secluded photoshoot experience.

It’s a friendly all-female team: photographer, makeup artist and pool assistant. We understand women because we are women. You’ll feel safe and comfortable.

Hell yeah! I’m a shameless sissy when it comes to cold water… and I suspect you might be, too. I keep my pool water at a cosy 34C throughout the year, which helps keep you relaxed and comfortable for hours… and because goosebumps are simply not photogenic 😉

Side note: It’s more important than ever to support our environment, so you’ll be happy to know that the pool runs entirely on renewable energy.

Most definitely. As a professional photographer, I am fully insured.

If this photoshoot is to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or pregnancy, please get in touch well in advance so that there’s a better chance I book you in for your preferred date. In any case, you should schedule your shoot no later than 10 weeks prior to needing your final artwork in hand. Note that my calendar fills quickly, and I’m usually booked out 2 months in advance.

It starts with a phone chat so I can get to know you a little bit and learn what outcomes you have in mind. I’ll also answer any questions you may have for me, and I can talk you through my process. Ultimately, the chat is to find out whether we are the perfect fit for each other. If you’re happy with everything, then we’ll choose a shoot date and start planning your tailor-made underwater experience.

Get in touch, I’m here to help 🙂

The experience was just amazing! I highly recommend Liz, she is so talented, professional, empowering and kind.
