Little girls all over the world (myself included) have had dreams of being a mermaid at some point or another.

Apparently, and not so surprisingly, this universal obsession has given birth (pun intended) to some gorgeous underwater maternity photography.

Florida-based photographer Adam Opris is taking underwater maternity photos that are so beautiful they might make you consider having a child just for the purpose of being in one of these shoots.

Adam began shooting underwater for weddings, but told LittleThings, “Once I captured my first underwater maternity shoot and realized what a great experience she had, I knew this was something that would be great to offer my new moms!”

See the incredible beauty captured in the photos below and be sure to SHARE with your friends on Facebook!

Opris has taken hundreds of underwater photos for pregnant clients.
