A few years ago I wrote a short story about a girl who could communicate with nature. She had a special gift passed down to her because her father was a merman. The story had detailed her adventure of falling in love with an artist and her quest to find her father and become a mermaid again. I really wanted to create a photo series with Ula and back in December 2013 we had shot our first Ula adventure.
Here are some images from her transformation into a beautiful mermaid. It took 4 years to do my next shoot as we just couldn’t find the perfect tail for Ula. Thanks to my dear friend Coral from Epanoir flower studio, we came up with an idea of using leaves to create the tail, which was so fitting since Ula can communicate with all nature. Coral did a phenomenal job and I was in tears when I saw Ula’s tail for the first time. I’m very proud of this shoot and hope you like it too.
