My name is Erena Shimoda.
I've been a scuba diver and an underwater portrait photographer for more than 10 years.
I love underwater maternity shoots! There is something special about seeing the joy, love and excitement on the mother-to-be’s face. A new baby is the most exciting moment in a family’s history, and it be part of the celebration and documentation is an honor. I’m lucky to see firsthand a very special connection being made under the water - a feeling of floating that reflects what the bundle of joy is experiencing within the womb.
Not only is it a very unique experience, but proceeds of the portrait session go towards sponsoring the underwater shoot of a cancer survivors, domestic violence survivors, people with PTSD and physical disability! It’s an experience that will last a lifetime, and also make a difference in another family’s life.
If this resonates with you, please reach out and book an incredible unique memory - an underwater photography shoot! I would love to be a part of your precious memory making!
