We've seen plenty of pregnancy portraits in our time, but none quite like these!

Photographer Adam Opris, who shoots beautiful pictures of pregnant women underwater, was initially inspired by his South Florida childhood, saying he's always looking to push the envelope.

After a pregnant client inquired about his process, Opris did some research and learned the underwater shoot would not only be safe for the individual, but time spent in water is recommended as a way for pregnant women to relieve joint and back pain.

Opris emphasizes that safety has always been his number one concern and shares that no client is underwater for more than a few seconds. His mission is to keep each mother-to-be's experience calm and stress-free.
