A couple of weeks ago, Millie got the chance to take part in a photoshoot by Simon from GB Swimstars. Simon specialises in photographing water sports activities so synchronised swimming is just up his street. I thought I’d share a couple of the pictures that we got from the session plus a couple of behind the scenes shots that Dermot managed to get taken.
There were wind machines, backdrops, waterproof lights and Dermot throwing 150 buckets of water over all of the swimmers! He couldn’t move his back for days.
The girls had really good fun – they were encouraged to come up with some ideas for positions and shots beforehand. We were a bit sad that the diving pit at the Aquatics centre was stuck at a height that meant the girls couldn’t be photographed actually in the water, but they still managed to get some brilliant shots and have tons of fun!
At one point, Dermot got a little over excited throwing water over a little one and knocked her over! Its ok .. she laughed!
More examples of Simon’s work can be found over on his website – I wasn’t paid for this review, Millie had such a good time and we are so pleased with the pictures that I wanted to share them.
I’m joining this post in with Michelle from Mummy From The Heart’s #GivethanksThursday blog hop – Because, quite frankly< I'm am amazed and ever so grateful that I've got a daughter that gorgeous and that talented! Why not hope over to some of the other posts in the linky and see what lovely news people are feeling happy about.
