It’s never easy when we lose a loved one. However, when we find clever ways to keep their memory alive, we’ll use the best of our creativity and make something extra special that will honor the ones we’ve lost. A beautiful image that will last forever is always a great idea, but not just any image. For Nicole Bennett, doing a maternity photoshoot with her son and her late husband, is one of the best ideas I’ve read about when it comes to honoring the ones we’ve loved and lost. The Mississippi native lost her husband, Deonata, just two months before her due date. Nicole came up with such a unique way to celebrate Deonta’s life through her maternity shoot with Landon, their four-year-old son.

The images were captured by photographer, Sidney Conley. Conley brilliantly added images of Deonata digitally into the touching and beautiful portraits.

Nicole tells ABC News, “I wanted to do something special because he’s been there for our son since day one. “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.”
