Nicole and Wesley are expecting parents, but they’re separated by 7,000 miles, since he’s serving the country overseas. Nicole wanted to document her pregnancy and birth, so she hired a photographer to handle her maternity photo shoot anyway. The photographer had a great idea though – and was able to include Wesley in the picture despite not even being in the same country.
See one of the pictures here.
There’s a picture of Nicole standing in a field, and a matching photo taken of Wesley, taken by someone he’s deployed with. The pictures were photoshopped together, the positions matching one another. It made for a pretty powerful picture, and a beautiful moment. It’s certainly an interesting story for their child to grow up with, too.
Nicole wound up having to be induced, and Wesley was able to make it home for the birth (yesterday, 4-12-17), but was overseas for most of the pregnancy.
