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

Boston Family Photographer | Tess & Co.
Andy, Asher, and I spent last weekend on a blink of a trip to Boston to spend time with Andy’s relatives for a Passover-ish get together.  We drove on Friday night and arrived just after midnight and left again early Sunday.  It wasn’t nearly enough time but we made the most of it. Of course I brought my camera to capture pictures of the tiny cousins.  Tess is 9 months old; Asher is 18 months old.  Asher has had plenty of time in front of my lens and I found that I just couldn’t get enough of the super-cheeked, huge blue-eyed creature with the crazy hair.  Little Tess. I think I witnessed her first experience with maracas.  Sh ...
