Dive Into Underwater Boudoir Photography

Underwater Photography

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve been super active on social media, and I know many of you have been curious about what I’ve been up to. So, today I’m excited to share a personal journey that has deeply impacted not just my life but the services I offer.


So, What Happened?

Back in 2021, I found myself overwhelmed by the demands of constantly creating content for various social media platforms. Each platform with its own set of rules and algorithms felt like a relentless race I just couldn’t keep up with. To add to the stress, frequent content flags and diminishing visibility made the whole process disheartening. It was draining, both mentally and physically. This culminated in me taking a step back, handing over everything to my social media manager, and focusing on what truly mattered to me.

During this reflective period, I also faced health challenges that drained my energy further, leading me to take a much-needed break. I visited my home country, China, and then traveled to Bali for some self-care and recovery. It was in Bali where my life took an unexpected but amazing turn. I enrolled in a freediving course on a whim. Having no prior plans or expectations, I plunged into the experience and, quite literally, into the deep blue.

Discovering The Expanse Of The Sea

What I found beneath the waves was nothing short of transformative. Freediving taught me to master my breathing and to clear my mind. On my final dive of the course, I reached a depth of 12 meters in a single breath. Surrounded by nothing but the calm, vast blue. I experienced a profound sense of peace and presence I had never felt before. It was just me and the water, in a world where time and noise ceased to exist. This incredible sense of liberation and serenity changed my perspective on life and work.

This epiphany led me to incorporate underwater portraits into my photography business upon returning to Australia. I wanted to share the unique feeling of tranquility and liberation I experienced underwater with others. My goal with underwater portraits isn’t just about capturing beautiful images but about allowing people to experience the pure joy of being present in the moment, surrounded by the gentle embrace of water.

There’s Nothing To Worry

When you book an underwater portrait session with me, we’ll start with a conversation about your vision and any concerns you might have. It’s important to me that we build a session around trust and vulnerability. The idea isn’t just to take pretty pictures but to create a safe space where you can let go of your insecurities.

On the day of the shoot, we prepare with special attention to details like hair and waterproof makeup to ensure you feel your best. But it’s not just about the looks; I’ll coach you on breathing techniques and ways to relax in the water, helping you to just ‘be’ in that moment.

Underwater is like a different realm. You feel weightless, unburdened, and disconnected from the world. With each click of my camera, I aim not only to capture your image but to reflect your spirit, resilience, and grace. I’ve been on both sides of the camera for these sessions, and I can personally attest to their power. It’s not just a photography session; it’s a journey to discovering a magical, peaceful place within yourself.


It’s Not Like Any Other Session

Having conducted many boudoir studio sessions, I can assure you that an underwater shoot is an entirely different experience. It’s not just about posing; it’s about embracing a whole new energy and finding peace that isn’t just about being at ease with the world around you but more about internal tranquility and self-acceptance.
