Here's a better way to celebrate an incoming baby and Halloween together. Step one: get a photographer. Step two: find a pumpkin patch. Step three: stage the chestburster scene from Alien. Step four: take lots of disturbing photos. Content warning! The photos in this article are not for the faint-hearted.
According to PetaPixel's Michael Zhang, Todd and Nicole Cameron (pictured) decided they "didn't want a 'serious' maternity photo shoot" and came up with something entirely their own... and horrifying:
It all started after Todd Cameron found an Alien Chestburster model at a garage sale ... Todd had the idea of using the xenomorph model for a lighthearted series of maternity photos.
The Nanaimo, British Columbia-based couple created their own costumes and props and enlisted the help of friend and local photographer Li Carter, who photographed them over the course of an hour in a pumpkin patch.
It all starts innocently enough.
Before descending into Alien territory.
All pretty horrible, right? Then... it gets weird.
