While everyone deals with the loss of a loved one in their own way, one woman has come up with an entirely original manner of preserving her late husband's memory.
After he passed away suddenly two months before her due date, mother-to-be Nicole Bennett decided to incorporate him into her upcoming maternity shoot alongside her four-year-old son Landon.
Speaking on her choice to include her husband Deonta in the photoshoot, she told ABC News, "I wanted to do something special because he's been there for my son since day one," said Bennett. "It's memories for my son of his father and for my daughter who will never meet her father, it's memories for her as well."
She worked on her vision with photographer Sidney Conley, who captured the powerful images in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. From there Conley digitally adding Deonta into the photos, a process that Conley said "beings me to tears."
