Underwater Photography plays a major part of the ilovebabyswimming program and over 1 million images have been taken and given away for free to all of our lovely families.
Not only is it a lovely keepsake of your time swimming with us, but it also shows the development of your little own as they grow through our amazing warm water classes.
Our Award Winning photographers take some stunning photos of your little one underwater and then we send these to you for free. You get a free underwater photo session and free images each and every term, something other swim schools charge £300+ for !
Our photographers use ultra modern digital equipment with specialist lights to create you those stunning images which you can share with friends and family.
So how does it work?
If your a STArfish 1 or 2 baby then its likely the photographer will attend your class at some point over the term. For later levels you'll be given a voucher to book into a free photo session at our pool in Lewes. This ensures for the later levels we don't disturb your learning with a photo session.
After your session photos are uploaded to a digital password protected gallery where they can be viewed and downloaded.
Images will be in the RAW state which can sometimes mean they don't look their best, but we offer an editing service or you can follow the instructions after downloading to self edit.
In saying that most people LOVE their RAW images and send them to us so we can share them on our Facebook page.
If you have recently attended a session and we have got you some spectacular images please do let us know and if we can share them too. This helps to keep our sessions free for everyone.
Important note regarding photography.
If you are planning to sign up to an ilovebabyswimming course JUST FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, we recommend you don't. We are primarily a Baby Swimming school and in some cases photography simply may not work, or our FREE sessions may not run for that term (please see our terms). This is very rare but we like to be honest from the start.
For the later levels (STArfish 6 - STAnley 3) we recommend that you DO NOT attend a photography session during this learning period. Little ones become more self aware and have strong wills and may not enjoy underwater photography sessions and as such attending a photography session may be detrimental to their swimming progress. Don't worry - as they start to move forwards past this period they tend to REALLY love photos and you get some spectacular images, usually with them smiling underwater !
Please also be aware that none of your fee goes towards our photography sessions and as such we do not provide refunds, make up classes or carry over sessions in relation to our free underwater photography.
