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!
