A loving couple, separated by deployment, got the chance to reunite through photography.
Veronica and Brandon Phillips are expecting their first child, but Veronica is currently at home in Florida while Brandon is serving in the Air Force overseas. Because of that, he has missed most of her pregnancy and cannot be there for their baby’s birth.
So when Veronica booked a maternity photo shoot with Jennifer McMahon, a photographer in Miami, Florida, she asked McMahon whether it would be possible to somehow incorporate Brandon into the photos. McMahon said yes and with stunning precision delivered one of the most heartwarming maternity images.
Although many are criticising the glorification of soldiers and war, I find the shot pretty awesome. The subject here is art, and this photo is brilliant.
