Your Underwater Photography Session

Shoots are carried out in a relaxed, warm environment with the focus being on fun and last for approximately 30 minutes. To make the most of the session a maximum of 4-5 children is recommended.

We all know that children aren't always willing to perform and in this environment they call the shots - if they have had enough then we call it a day. Our aim is to provide you with some stunning photographs to treasure, so if you end up with a child that wont conform on the day or you are not happy with your photographs we will offer you one completely free re-sit*.

Following the photo shoot you will be able to view your pictures online in our Client Area or we can arrange a viewing. You can then purchase your favourite ones via the online shopping cart and have them delivered directly to your door.

Delivery times are approximately 28 days. Collection is available from BN27, East Sussex. Please NOTE that baby handler hands and marks will be left in for viewing, if this is an image you would like it will be finely retouched for printing (bubbles not included).

What better opportunity to turn a family swim in to a memory captured forever!

***IMPORTANT*** Anyone under the age of 8 or any weak or non swimmers MUST have an adult in the water during the session. It is also helpful to have an extra adult per child regardless of the child's age as some shots require the child to swim away from the swim teacher, so please do join your children in the water. ***


* T&C Apply. We do not offer a free re-sit for cancellations and no shows.
