A Mermaid's Tale by photographer Kim Porter offers a new look into an emerging underwater fashion trend, especially in South Florida. Clients are lining up in mermaid costumes, for sure, but also are showing off street styles, according to Fort Lauderdale's Porter.

"Over the last couple of years, underwater fashion has become extremely popular on photography’s social media and electronic magazines that have to do with water," Porter told videographer and filmmaker Dawn Dubriel.

"Underwater portraits are a unique way to capture people and ideas. One doesn’t need to be a supermodel — only willing to have fun. Some of my best photos are kids simply having fun underwater in a pool."
