“My wife and I have been together for almost 5 years. Well, you won’t believe what happened yesterday during our maternity shoot! Our chests are bursting with love for our new addition! (Full story at end of photos).
My wife and I met on Halloween (she was an amazing zombie and I was Ace Ventura Pet Detective). We bonded over our love of Halloween, crafting, laughter, and silliness and haven’t looked back! This particular idea came about when I was at a garage sale and found a model of an Aliens Chestburster. I brought it home, of course, and as I was putting it together and painting it, the idea of a maternity shoot came to me. Nicole wasn’t interested in a traditional maternity shoot so our planning began.
I took care of the general storyline and props (including the hand carved pumpkin ‘alien pod’ and Nicole took care of finding our wardrobe. Li Carter is a local amazing photographer and a dear friend of ours and has been a part of many fun photo shoots for our family. She was definitely excited from the first message and found our idea hilarious but not surprising (having known us for years)!
The one thing that we would want people to take away would be something that my wife has said in the past about relationships. ‘If you’re not laughing on a regular basis, it’s just not worth it.’ We just like to have fun and bring out the silly in each other and it works for us!”
