MABANK, Texas — A photographer created a tribute to one couple’s experience as they await the arrival of their baby.

Nicole and Wesley Bedwell are expecting their daughter, Pyper, this week, FOX10 reported. But Wesley, who is a Navy corpsman, has been stationed overseas since November.

Nicole Bedwell hired Traci Fugitt of Traci Lynn Photography to capture some of the moments Wesley Bedwell was missing while he was serving, FOX10 said.

Fugitt cropped two photos of the expectant parents, who were thousands of miles away, and put the photos together.

According to FOX10, Nicole Bedwell developed hypertension and has to deliver the baby this week. Wesley Bedwell will be able to be there when Pyper arrives.

“With some help from Red Cross, Nicole was able to get Wesley home yesterday,” FOX10 reported.
