Women Tried Underwater Photography And It Came Out So Freakin' Beautiful

    Goddesses, unite!

    Hey hey! We're Sheridan and Jazzmyne, two women who prefer to take photos on dry land.

    This is probably because we had no idea that underwater photography was even a thing. But guess what? It totally is, and boy, is it GORGEOUS.

    So when we had the chance to have a professional photo shoot underwater, we of course had to say yes. Here's what happened:

    Going in, we didn't really know what to expect. Like, how were we going to hold our breath AND pose AND look graceful doing it?

    Luckily, photographer Brenda Stumpf and Virginia Hankins of Sheroes Entertainment do this for a living and were able to walk us through every step of the process.

    We first had to choose which gorgeous dresses we were going to wear to get soaked in a pool.

    Then we got mermaid makeovers, complete with gems and vibrant colors.

    Yeah, we definitely felt like actual goddesses.

    Before we could model, however, we needed a water safety rundown.

    Then we took the plunge!

    Truth be told, it was hard AF.

    But when we saw our final photos, our jaws pretty much dropped.

    Sheridan: I don't usually describe myself as graceful — my shin has never met a table corner it doesn't like — but this is such a delicate, ethereal photo of me. I'm kind of speechless. I look so at peace and serene. I'm sure my husband would like to see this Sheridan more often (ba-dum-tshh). For someone who has seriously considered canceling plans because they would involve putting on a bra, it was so nice to feel like a goddess for a day.

    Jazzmyne: DDDDAMN. Like, what?! This looks crazy to me. Seeing this picture makes me want to go back and try it out again (without being sick for literally a week after). I feel like this picture shows me as strong but still ethereal, which is something I would never say about myself. I feel like I could definitely be Ursula’s badass significant other in this picture!

    So go on with your badass underwater goddess 'self!
