AquaSafe Swim School Underwater Portrait

AquaSafe Swim School is hosting All Wet Portraits and international award winning professional underwater photographer Ron Watkins for a special group portrait session on November 1, 2009 from 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM. This event will be held at their Scottsdale location at 9380 E. Bahia Drive Suite A104 (just NE of the 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright).

This is a great opportunity to get a truly unique portrait taken of your children in the pure joy and freedom of water. These portraits will be a family treasure and admired by everyone. In addition to a traditional image of your children underwater with a blue background, colorful backdrops and props will be used to add a bit of artistic flair. Feel free to bring in a costume for your child to pose in. There will also be some props available the day of the shoot that you may use.

A limited number of spaces are available for these sessions, so sign up today by visiting the AquaSafe Swim Center front desk or call 480-425-SWIM (7946) for more information.

Session Fee: $65 per Family

Underwater Photo Sessions: Sessions will be 15 minutes and will be shared between two families. Each family will have a minimum of three different sittings and the photographer will rotate between families in order to allow the children to rest in between and get ready for the next pose. If a family will have more than 4 members that will be in the photo, it is recommended that they book both spaces in the session to increase the quality of both individual and family shots. Families should plan to be there and ready to get in the pool at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled session time. Parents are required to be in the pool even if they are not planning to be in the picture to help the child prepare for the each sitting.

Session images will be uploaded 5-10 days after the shoot to the All Wet Portraits’ password protected secure website for viewing. The session fee covers only the ‘sitting fee’ and photographers time, but you will have the opportunity to purchase both printed and digital images online from the site. Product price lists are available at AquaSafe. For more information about All Wet Portraits, to view their portfolio or to learn more about the products offered, visit their website at
