MontCo Maternity Photographer | Norristown | Jayme

Family

You can try to say that you are a super-nerd or an uber geek or whatever but I’d have trouble believing you after meeting Jayme and David.  Their maternity session guest starred Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  How many of you can say that?!

I don’t even know where to begin with these two.  How about Dave’s initial inquiry.  It went something like this:

We’re into horror movies (Exorcist is best movie ever), things blowing up (we watch Die Hard each Christmas, cuz it’s a damn good Christmas movie), whiskey (not for my wife right now), listening to loud metal, and falling asleep while getting tattoos because dammit that needle is soothing. We’re looking for something a little nutty and off the beaten path for these baby bump photos, but not quite enough that anyone would get hurt or arrested…much.

So… yeah.  That’s where the fun began and we took off from there.  I showed up at their house and was greeted by some turtles and epic awesomeness.  Check out this nursery!

Please note the “Welcome Little Muggle” banner, the handmade valances starring all of the Mario characters, assorted Batman and Star Wars figurines and, if you look closely, you’ll see Doctor Who’s Daleks on the curtains.  Too many fandoms to pick just one.  These two are not fooling around!

It was important to Dave that we spend some time reading to the baby.  They are not finding out the sex so they refer to it as “Spawn.”  How darling!  His favorite nighty-night books include Preacher and 30 Days of Night comics.  They’re about demons and vampires.  NBD.

They also wanted to images of their normal life, a lot of which is spent as gamers.  They announced their pregnancy to family and friends with a picture of some baby chucks and a note, “Player 3 loading.”

After a quick change (nod to Star Wars), we went out in the drizzly rain for more adventuring.

Speaking of Star Wars, please bask in the genius of the way Jayme told Dave about the pregnancy over the holidays!  (Jayme’s pictures)  As if you couldn’t tell, that’s a DARTH VADER CHRISTMAS TREE! And a sign that says, “David, you will be a father.”

Jayme spent her pregnancy craving chips and salsa and continuing bootcamp classes up til the end.  She’s hardcore but that was already pretty obvious.

David and Jayme met online (duh).  Their first date was to a Tool show and their second was to the Mutter Museum.  It makes sense that their wedding was right around Halloween with costumes encouraged.

These two are something else!  They might not even be human but who am I to judge?  At the end of the session they asked, “is this the weirdest maternity session you’ve ever done?”  “Um, yes,” I replied.  Then they high fived each other.

Chucks for the whole family for Friday the 13th inspired maternity session

Who is 8 months pregnant and still goes to the gym at least three times a week? Deena, that's who. That is why she still fits into her jeans (albeit unbuttoned), still wears her wedding ring, and still looks absolutely amazing. I'm in awe. I was so happy to spend some time with her and Drew at their house in Conshohocken to get maternity pictures and revel in this exciting time for them.This is their first little one.

[what to wear] family sessions
Stumped, huh? How on earth do you reconcile all of those personalities into pleasing pictures? Well, it's not so hard.Sometime in the 90s it was decided that people should all wear white shirts and jeans or khakis for family pictures. Set yourself free from that idea right now! You don't want to dress all in the same exact outfit and look like the Von Trapp family or a soccer team. You're each unique individuals so wouldn't you want that to come out in your pictures? You want to go for complimentary, not mirror, looks.Here are some tips:* Take the location and season into account. That sundress may be cute as can be but it's just not g ...
