before and after underwater editing

My poor, sweet children. They already have a camera in their faces 24/7 and now I’ve added picture taking into our pool routine. Oh, well. I let them live in my house. And I give them lots of snacks. :)

I wanted to share this before and after from my GoPro. If you’re into underwater photography and need some help with edits, give me a shout. With a little Photoshop magic, you can turn some good shots into I-need-to-print-these-out-and-hang-them-up images.

Don’t you love his little zen-meditation-look-momma-I-can-sit-on-the-bottom-of-the-pool pose? Such a cool kid. What are the pool tricks your kids have? Our current faves (other than sitting on the bottom) are throw-the-rings-and-watch-me-go-get-them, swim across the pool in one breath, and twisty-turny underwater spinning. DCIM100GOPROGOPR0487.JPG


Do you love this cool overlay of sun rays? If so, hop over to and download it for free from my lovely friend Rita (she offers Photoshop and Photoshop Elements options). You might even spy two little kiddos you recognize. :)

Guys, I hope you’re in the middle of the most fabulous summer ever. Do you have any travelling planned? Up next, I’m doing shoots in Perdido Key, Atlanta, and Steamboat Springs. People ask me–usually once a day–how I manage to book so many of these paid-for-working vacations. Each situation is different, but I have some general tips and secrets I’ll share in another post. If you’re serious about wanting to become a paid travel photographer, get on my schedule and see if we are a good fit for coaching, and I’ll teach you all of my ways. :)

Love, Andrea

PS, I’m already almost fully booked for the rest of the summer for photo shoots. Fall is still wide open, so give me a call now if you want to schedule a family sesh for those dreaded oh-so-lovely Christmas cards. xoxo OR 508.768.5808
