I love photographing children underwater; the ripples, the colors, the happiness children exude. This is my new series. Last year I photographed many children as super heroes and athletes – this year I wanted to do something a bit more graceful. Ballet and modern dancing fit the bill.

Coming up with themes that describe the children’s personalities is fun for me, but also fun for them. Its a wonderful challenge taking these photographs and creating fine art with them. These prints can go up to 5 feet- and are an incredible wow factor on any wall.

Thank you for having a look, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did taking the photographs. All children are under the age of 15.
