Deployed Dad Participates in Wife's Maternity Shoot in the Best Way

Since Nicole's husband Wesley is deployed, the expectant mom hired Traci of Traci Lynn Photography to capture maternity, birth, and hospital sessions during her pregnancy and delivery. Understanding what a bittersweet time this was for the couple, Traci came up with a way to include Wesley — despite the 7,000 mile distance — since he wasn't able to physically be there with his wife for the birth.

In order to achieve their military-inspired vision, Nicole utilized his photo and dog tags but Wesley also had someone take a photo of him overseas posing in the perfect position. Traci later photoshopped the photos together and created a breathtaking maternity portrait unlike any other. The final result left Nicole, Wesley, both of their families, and countless strangers who have since seen them overcome with emotion!
