"7,000 miles between them," a Texas-based photographer wrote in a Facebook post showing a beautifully shot maternity photo. The story behind it is one she will "never forget."
In a blog posted Tuesday, Traci Fugitt -- owner of Traci Lynn Photography -- said she received a "very special request" a few months back. Expecting mom (at the time), Nicole, inquired about maternity and birth portraits.
But she didn't just want simple photos taken -- she wanted them to feature her husband. A rather difficult request being as her husband Wesley, a Navy corpsman, had been deployed since November, according to Inside Edition, and had missed her entire pregnancy.
So Traci turned that "special request" into something special and the now-viral "7,000 Miles To Pyper" photo was born.
