We haven’t featured a maternity session in ages, but when I came across this submission, I just new I had to share it! The talented Ilse Moore was responsible for Natalie’s lovilee underwater maternity shoot. She creatively entitled the shoot ‘Do you feel what I feel’.
‘As a fellow lover of the ethereal and surreal underwater world, Natalie embraced the quietness of the water and permitted herself to get lost in surroundings so closely resembling the surroundings of her unborn child. With that in mind we went with a gorgeous, but moody and surreal really feel. We were hoping for one thing that might describe a metaphorical understanding among Natalie and her unborn daughter, an ethereal water cocoon perhaps…
Watching Natalie move gradually and gracefully beneath the water was not only incredible to witness, but I was excited by her peaceful, goddess-like expressions. I have often loved doing maternity shoots, there’s a beautiful tenderness and warmth that surrounds the mother that is hard to describe… This was just like it.’ – Ilse Moore
