Beautiful and Sad Story - Shanna Logan Photography
"She talked about him the entire time we shot.
How she felt he was still there with her.
How she is so happy for this gift, baby Jameson.
That she was going to be the best mom she could.
Let him know how loved he is and how dad will always be there in spirit.
We both cried and hugged during the session."
Shanna Logan took these pictures and said that I could share them.
Here's the rest of what she wrote about the photo shoot.
It's both heartbreaking and beautiful:
We imagined him being there while we got some of the shots where we were adding him in, and you could see her pain while we shot.
Amanda and Jesse were married on March 10th, 2017.
He passed away on May 27th, 2017 around noon.
He was cutting down trees on their family property with his parents.
The tree fell fine, but hit another tree on the way down, struck a limb and killed him instantly.
For the baby, they chose the name Jameson William Snyder.
It's the same initials as his dad.
The blanket was sent to her in the mail by an unknown sender after he died. It said "God knew my heart needed you."
While we shot she talked about how she felt he was still there with her, there are signs and she can see them.
The day after there was a storm, and there was a power outage.
And in the middle of the night while she was walking down the hall a license plate decoration fell.
It said "whatever it takes."
She uses that for strength to know, that 'whatever it takes' she is going to make it through this and he is there with her and Jameson everyday.
She said the baby has the same grin as him.
When he smiles she sees him.
This is an amazing service that we as photographers are able to do for clients going through such pain.
I have seen them done before but when you actually do a shoot like this it is absolutely heartbreaking.
I am happy to announce that little Jameson William Snyder was born on 8/2/2017.
Jameson is a little miracle, and a gift, and his dad would be so so proud.
I wish the best for you and your little one Amanda!
