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.
Pricing is in two parts:
A) The Photoshoot. The process starts with an unforgettable underwater photoshoot day, a memory-making once-in-a-lifetime 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 day is priced at $790.
B) The Images. 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, the average investment in images starts at around $2500, and goes up from there; 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.
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 way—this 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!
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.
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.
The photoshoots are on weekdays. I can sometimes do shoots on Sundays by special arrangement.
As long as needed, but generally you’ll be with me from first thing in the morning until mid-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 in-studio 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 🙂
Absolutely, I encourage it 🙂
Yes, I photograph nudes, implied nudes, and boudoir/lingerie. The studio team is all female.
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 😉
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.
The experience was just amazing! I highly recommend Liz, she is so talented, professional, empowering and kind.
