Shooting an underwater series with one of my favorite lingerie brands, Agent Provocateur?
It was early in my pregnancy at that stage you're not supposed to tell anyone, so I didn't. But knowing I'd go through a drastic physical change the following months I absolutely wanted to take part in that amazing project.
The result is whimsical.
Ellie Furia from H2O Particles shot the pictures in an outdoor pool creating an enchanting story of underwater images.
Draped in the sultry AP swimwear (check the pieces I wore below) and flowing fabrics I tried to pull my best mermaid impression :) resulting in light-weight poses in a dramatic setting.
Yet, despite the beautiful outcome, the shoot itself was a real challenge.
Holding your breath then letting all the air out of your lungs so you can float, posing & repeating that a hundred times while being pregnant was incredibly difficult. I remember sitting in my car driving home after this with water trapped in my ears, irritated red eyes and already the beginning of a cold, thinking, if only it was worth it.
And it was. The shoot turned out great and was truly an unique experience.
I'd probably never do again :)
