Jackson, Mississippi (March 5, 2016) – A woman is honoring the life of the father of her children by including him in her maternity photo shoot.

Nicole Bennett is due to give birth to her second child later this month. But according to KSWO, Deonte Bennett, the father of her two children and her ex-husband, unexpectedly died January 5.

Before Deonte’s death, Nicole contacted photographer Sidney Conley about doing a maternity photo shoot. “We discussed the photo shoot prior to his death, being the fact out first son was born at 32 weeks, he was early so we didn’t have that opportunity,” Nicole told KSWO.

She decided to move forward with the photo shoot after Deonte’s death. In an effort to help her children remember their father, Nicole asked Conley to digitally add Deonte to the photos.

“Honestly I just wanted to make Nicole happy, I wanted her to look at the images and drop her jaw,” Conley said. He used Adobe Photoshop to add Deonte to the pictures.

Bennett shared the photos with her friends and family on Facebook, and the pictures have since gone viral.

Bennett told KSWO that her son asked how his dad got in the photos, and she told him, “Well he’s an angel now, so we had an angel added to our photos.”
