Precious Memories of Benét

This is Jacquelyn here. She was 27 weeks pregnant at the time I photographed her. She brought her fiancé & her mom, who was not feeling well, because she wanted to celebrate and cherish this moment. We had such a great time together while doing her maternity photos. I love how this soon-to-be momma specifically wanted a studio shoot because of its timeless & classic look. Nine days after her shoot, I sent Jackie a message saying how excited I was for her reveal session. But I got a message from her saying that the baby passed away due to some complications.

I was surprised, shocked and devastated. In my mind, I asked, How can it be? How is this happening? They are supposed to see their beautiful maternity portraits and now the baby is gone. Benét was supposed to see these photographs while she was in her mommy’s tummy when she was big enough. She’s supposed to see all these photographs of her mom and dad so happy together.

Today, Jacquelyn would have been around 34 weeks pushing so close to Benét’s arrival.

Benét means blessing in French.
