From mermaid tails to shark infested waters, Lucy uses an array of props to capture a number of mesmerising expressions.

Sheffield-based Lucy, of Starfish Underwater Photography, said: “I really like being underwater as it’s so peaceful.

“Now I have a child of my own it’s really the only peace I get.

“People often ask if the photos are actually underwater.

“Although the babies look like they’re free swimming, they are only underwater for a few seconds.

“All the babies and children practice submersion in lesson before they attend a photo shoot.
