What makes our underwater photography the best?

There's nothing quite like seeing your baby swimming underwater. And we know time with them is precious, so having a snapshot of a skill that you and your little one have learnt together is something you'll want to keep for a lifetime. 

Our underwater photography captures that special moment where your little one shows off everything they've learnt so far in their lessons.

Our photographers and equipment are world-class, so you can feel confident that you'll be taking home a beautifully crisp, high-resolution shot of your baby, striking their best pose. And we take up to 9 images of your baby on our photo shoots, so you'll have plenty to choose from. 

So take home a unique keepsake. It's a chance to share your little one's progress with your friends and family too. 

Take a peek at some of our amazing shots!

"Our photoshoot experience was amazing from start to finish. The staff were so helpful and warm from the moment we arrived. We were blown away with the quality of our photo and our friends and family are amazed at our little lady’s show-stopping picture on our sitting room wall! Thank you to all the staff, we will cherish these photos that celebrate our baby’s achievement in the water. We would absolutely recommend this if you want a really special photo of your baby. - Lorna & Ayla, Dublin

How does it work?

Being a part of the Water Babies family means you’ll be automatically placed onto a photo shoot as you book on with us. Your session in the pool is complimentary and completely optional, but we think it's a super way to finish your first term and record your little one's achievement. You'll be able to view your photos after your session and have the chance to buy them.

We set up a state-of-the-art studio in the pool to create that iconic 'Nirvana' shot of your baby. The shoot is based on the activities that you'll learn from your lessons, so you and your baby can feel completely at ease. And don't worry. We assess every baby individually so you don't need to be anxious about whether they're ready. We're only ready when they are.

Award-winning photographers

Award-winning photographers
It's not as easy to take underwater shots of babies swimming as you might think! It's not just a case of point and click. Our photographers need to be able to hold their breath underwater, lower their heart rate, use heavy equipment and keep their hands steady...and that's just the start. They've also got to deal with tricky lighting conditions, and wriggly babies, with only a split-second to get the perfect snap. That's why many of our photographers started out as scuba divers and then took up under water photography professionally. And they've won loads of awards too. Some of then have even worked for the BBC and National Geographic. Impressive stuff.
