A few facts about this shoot:

I had just received my underwater housing kit last Tuesday and posted a status at 2am (Wednesday) saying, "hey who wants to take underwater photos tomorrow!" to my surprise I had a handful of people interested shooting but more importantly I was able to snag an amazing MUAH (Melanie) and a designer (DJ) who were both able to shift there schedules around and come help out.

I was also lucky to have three wonderful models available, Jen, Tasha, and Jessica (check back for Jessica's edits later). It always makes a shoot that much smoother when you have experienced models able to pose themselves and provide there creative spin and personality

So all in all, we put together a shoot 10 hours before call time and I must say, the images are beyond any expectations I had. Since this was a collaborative first time shooting underwater for everyone, I was thinking it would be mostly a test shoot with high hopes of getting some good shots, but once everything started coming together, it quickly turned into a full blown editorial.

I hope you guys like the images!
