This Maternity Shoot Took An Unexpected Turn

It started just like any other maternity shoot.

There's a nicely dressed couple, Todd Cameron and his pregnant wife Nicole in a green field posing.

How nice.

But without warning things took a turn.

She fell to the ground, the tension growing.

Slowly her belly grew pointy, and out came a very red, very bloody, snake-like being. The animals splattered both its 'parents' with its blood as it made its debut into the world.

“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,” Cameron, told Bored Panda.

The couple are massive fans of elaborate dress-ups, first meeting on Halloween. How fitting.

Todd shared the photo-shoot on his Facebook and it quickly went viral.

"Well, you won't believe what happened yesterday DURING OUR MATERNITY SHOOT!!! Our chests are bursting with love for our new addition!" Todd  wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.

The new family seem very happy together and in just a few months they will grow from three members to four.
