There’s power in pregnancy, ladies and gentlemen!

Maternity photos are rarely packaged like something luxurious and enviable, but one photographer sought to give this special time in a woman’s life all the bells and whistles of a fashion shoot. These death-defying underwater maternity photos feature women in brightly colored, beautiful gowns and wraps.

One mama-to-be even dons stiletto heels, that quite frankly, look too expensive to be in a swimming pool.

Adam Oris is the genius behind these photos, and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the effect of putting maternity in a spotlight similar to the one we typically shine on models and fashion only. After all, isn’t being a mother (or a parent, for that matter) one of the most important jobs there is? Please SHARE this powerful perspective on the power of pregnancy with all of your friends!

"I’ve practically lived in the ocean my whole life. With that great love for water, I am bringing mermaids out of my maternity clients," said the photographer in an interview with BoredPanda.
