Y’all! How cool is this?!? I finally have my own pool!! Eeek! It’s all coming together. My three loves ~ water, children, photography ~ in one big fat amazing explosion of creative juiciness! And I couldn’t be more excited!! Like, ‘these are the first four images I grabbed to edit and I am writing a blog post before I edit any more because I can’t stand it’ kind of excited! I have loved using my GoPro Hero5 Session for my Underwater Photography, but putting my DSLR in my new Ewa-Marine bag has taken this to a whole new level. This was my first time in the water with the new bag. It definitely took some getting used to – but wow! So so so FUN!! And my boys were amazing models. In fact they had so much fun they were asking when we can do it again! (Please believe me when I tell you – photographer’s children never REQUEST to be in photos! HA!) So that tells you how fun it was for them too. I will definitely need another adult in the pool to help me shoot with my little guy – safety first! With the bigger gear I just don’t have a hand free to catch him. But with the older boys it was fantastic. I can’t wait to get back in with a helper and capture some of my littlest fishy.
And don’t worry ~ there will most definitely be more of these coming quite soon…
Which one is your favorite?? I would love to hear from you!
Thank you to the amazing photographers at Underwater Kids for featuring this image on Instagram @UnderwaterKids. Such an honor to be included among such beautiful photography! (and Benjamin was pretty proud of himself for making it as a “feature” 😉
Are you on Instagram?? Come on over to join me! I went live to test out my Ewa Marine bag for the first time this weekend. I’ll be sharing more pool adventures and UW Photography Tips in the next few weeks ~ because it got HOT fast here in Charlotte, so we are moving IN!! @ReneeStengelPhotography
You captured some amazing images underwater! How fun!!!
Thanks Jessica! My boys are having so much fun ~ they are actually requesting to do another session this weekend! Now you know that is a first from Photographer’s Kids!! Haha!
My favorite are the 1st and 3rd photo!! I love all the bubbles!
The bubbles are so fun Cristy!! The boys loved jumping in over and over helping me learn how to time it just right. We are really going to have fun with this over the summer!!
I love all of these pictures!!! You have such an amazing talent and I am so glad you are sharing it with everyone!!
Oh Kelly! Your kind words mean so much to me! Thank you for taking the time to look at my work! I am having so much fun being back behind the lens full time!!
