I met Megan in July while I was working Kayla and Kelli's wedding. Such a beautiful bridesmaid with a growing baby bump. We talked a little about maternity photos and I gave her my information to contact me when she was ready.
In August the unthinkable happened and Megan's boyfriend, the father of her sweet baby girl, passed away from the injuries he had received in an accident. There was no way I could imagine the pain and grief that she was going through but a few days later I reached out to her because I knew her maternity photos had to be special. I knew that it was going to be an emotional session because she had planned on having him with her. Even though he wasn't there with us in person he was there holding her hand in spirit, helping her be strong.
The night after our session at the Japanese Gardens in Mobile, AL , Megan send me a message with a note to Justin. So many things are left unsaid when someone leaves the world unexpectedly and way too soon. Megan wanted to include the letter in the blog post and this story so that Justin is as much a part of the maternity session as he can be, and so that anyone reading knows their story and sees the symbolic meaning of the weeping willows and photos of Justin through out the gallery.
