There is something very special about photographing a cenote maternity session. The little life about to burst into the world is the epitome of how amazing nature is.

Here in the Riviera Maya, we have many many beautiful cenotes. The lush, jungle foliage is an incredible backdrop for pictures but the cool, freshwater is what really makes them special. Pregnant bellies become weightless in the water and remind us that baby is floating right now inside mom. There is nothing more powerful than the connection with a couples love for each other while execting a new life to come into this world.

Underwater photography in cenotes is magical. The locations are always a reminder of how precious life is in so many ways. Here in the Riviera Maya, the cenotes are aquifers that give life to the 2nd largest reef system in the world, the Mesoamerican Reef.  The natural spring water is full of life and energy.   Usually, we are surrounded by sounds of insects and animals and birds chirping.
