Photographer Brings Military Couple Together To Celebrate Pregnancy

A military couple who are apart due to the husband being deployed overseas were reunited to celebrate the fact that they are expecting their first child together. Except this was a meeting with a difference – as it was all done with the help of a photographer!

Veronica and Brandon Phillips wanted to celebrate the moment with a maternity shoot, but with Brandon being overseas with the Air Force they came up with a smart solution.

Jennifer McMahon of Jennifer Ariel photography was called on for the shoot and was asked to somehow include Brandon in one of the shots. Using some photoshop trickery, McMahon managed to pull off the shot – as she revealed:

“I had seen many photos where people were Photoshopped in, and I have Photoshopped siblings together before to look like one seamless photo. After playing around with several edits for a few days and many hours of editing, I posted the one I thought told the best story and would evoke emotion in all who saw it.”

The picture quickly went viral online, with McMahon saying:

“I know it’s not even the best photo, but it’s the story that it tells that means so much to people.”
