“Everyone wants to be a Mermaid, DUH!” – Peyton West, age 8.
Every so often, we spin our wheels of creativity and play with subject matter that is a bit “out of this world” such as underwater fashion photography / cenote trash the dress sessions or in this case mermaids and stand up paddle boards.
The truth is simple, we believe in mermaids. You should too. Let your imagination run and dream big and you may be the next one to have a mermaid sighting. If you come to the magical waters (caribbean or cenotes) of the Mayan Riviera, the sighting may happen to you quicker than you imagined.
For this shoot, Thanks to Paula Layman from Panga Stand Up Paddle boards for your support. Thanks to our mermaids, may there be many more sightings :)
Other MERMAID INSPIRATION
We have incorporated many Mermaid themed shoots for other clients. Seems as though whenever we do, the world really wants a piece of it. Susana’s wedding was featured virally in dozens of countries and has several hundred thousand hits on the video uploaded to youtube. She was BOLD enough to get married in the middle of the ocean in Cozumel Mexico along with her hundreds of guests, they stood on a sandbar and she walked the aisle in epic fashion. Here is her Mermaid Themed Wedding.
Mermaids actually stem from a childhood fantasy that we all have… Every little girl wants to be one… Just ask Del Sol Photography’s co Founder (Matt Adcock’s) niece, Peyton West. At age 8 when asked if she would like to be a mermaid, she stated “Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid, DUH”?
Cammy also dreamed to be a mermaid since she was little, so when her soon to be Fiance Eric contacted us, we decided it was CRUCIAL to plan the underwater proposal session, with a mermaid tail. Check out their story recently viral; This guy proposed to his Mermaid obsessed girlfriend underwater.
Family Mermaid Inspiration
Family travel and family mermaids should always be together. This is our story about family adventure swimming w/ tails in cenotes and playing in the ocean, on the Caribbean coast of Playa del Carmen. Frankly, we’d love to see more family mermaid shoots.
