Pool Jumping , My Captured Moments

I love this photo, as you can see it is of Joe and was taken on our last cruise. He had totally lost his confidence with water and had spent the whole holiday round the edges of the pool happily splashing about but not daring to venture in.

Then a couple of days before we came home he got his mojo back thank goodness. He spent the rest of his time pool jumping and had me perched on the edge of the pool to get action shots, and do you know what? He had a fantastic time, I love this  photo in particular as he looks so relaxed, happy and confident. A moment in time I am so glad I have captured.

    That is a fab picture! It’s funny how they lose their confidence isn’t it? I am so glad it got it back before the end of the holiday. This is a great action, captured moment, he will love looking back on it when he is older xx

    Great memory. It’s great that Joe has regained his confidence with water. There’s far too much fun to be had at the pool and beach #MyCapturedMoment

    Great shot! My eldest has lost her confidence with water too! We taught my youngest daughter to swim in Thailand. She had no confidence to start with but her confidence grew every day and she even started to ‘swim/paddle’ on her own!

      Its great to see them confident with water isn’t it, I know you should never fully relax around water, but the knowledge they are feeling confident is lovely x

    That’s such a great shot, it’s wonderful when they get their confidence, or regain it after being nervous. Wonderful to watch x #mycapturedmoment

    Great picture! But why is he jumping in the pool with all his clothes on?? I’m guessing he was just being sun conscious… Anyway, great shot and glad he had such a good time!

    A great action shot with a great memory! It’s horrible when they lose their confidence to do something but it’s lovely that you captured it returning! 🙂 x
