Woman ‘Gives Birth To Alien’ In Middle Of Pregnancy Photoshoot
If your Facebook feed is anything like mine, you’re probably being inundated daily by glowing couples gazing into each others eyes over a rounded baby bump.
Much like baby showers and gender reveals, the tasteful maternity photo shoot has become something of a modern day milestone among expectant parents.
This is all well and good of course, but it’s always good fun when mamas and papas to be deviate from the norm a bit with something wacky and unexpected.
Expectant parents Todd and Nicole Cameron, from British Columbia, are big fans of the Halloween season, and love an excuse to dress up and have some fun.
So when it came to their maternity shoot, flowers and prettiness just wouldn’t cut it. This unique couple were after a shoot which reflected their love for all things creepy.
The shoot itself was taken in a autumnal pumpkin patch, and starts off in a fairly normal fashion; with the couple posing together under an umbrella and Todd leaning down to lovingly kiss Nicole’s bump.
However, the shoot quickly takes a gory turn. Drawing from that famous scene in Alien, Nicole can be seen lying on the ground as an alien bursts from her stomach in a bloody eruption.
The rest of the photos grow increasingly hilarious. We see Todd chasing the alien ‘baby’ as it scampers away across the pumpkin patch.
The parents can then be seen cradling their gruesome child in a blanket, beaming at each other with pride. The alien even has a dummy in its little mouth, which is weirdly kind of adorable.
Speaking about their alternative maternity shoot, Todd told Bored Panda:
I had recently found an Alien’s Chestburster model at a garage sale and after putting it together and painting it, the idea for this shoot came to me,
I had an idea for the general story and props needed, including carving the alien pod pumpkin and Nicole took care of finding our ‘out there’ wardrobe.
We actually first met at Halloween, we always hand-make elaborate costumes and we go all out on Halloween decorations at our house, so this was really just a fun way to celebrate who we are while passing on a few smiles and laughs in the process!
The photo shoot took about an hour and, though chilly and muddy on the pumpkin patch, it was so much fun. We just kept laughing at the absurdity of it and hoping the employees of the farm wouldn’t drive by to see us covered in blood.
The amazing photographs were taken by Li Carter, a local photographer from Nanaimo, British Columbia, and this isn’t the first time she has captured special moments in the couple’s life in an eccentric manner.
Todd told Bored Panda:
She is also a friend of ours and has shot many of our personal family highlights including my The Big Lebowski 40th Birthday’, my annual personal holiday, ‘Sasquatch Day’ and even our ‘Enchantment Under The Sea’ Back to the Future wedding.
Li is very laid back, easy to work with, and we always make a great team with our collaborations. She, as always, was the perfect choice for this shoot.
The photos quickly went viral, with friends of the couple greatly appreciating their dark sense of humour.
One person chuckled:
Omg this is my highlight of 2018 so far haha! Nicely done Todd Cameron.
You guys always keep us guessing. This is sadistically hilarious!

With a sense of humour like this, I’m positive Todd and Nicole will make fantastic, albeit spooky, parents. I just hope their real baby turns out a bit cuter than this one…
