Sadly, Greenville, S.C. Police Officer Allen Jacobs was shot and killed in the line of duty earlier this year. But now his devastated widow, Meghan Murphy Jacobs, has done something to honor her late husband, and it has everyone talking.
See, Meghan is pregnant with the couple's first child: a daughter that she plans to name Lennox. The grieving woman wanted to capture her pregnancy with a maternity photo shoot that also honored her beloved husband. The result, shot by photographer Jessie Ellex, is nothing short of breathtaking.
The most stunning one of all captures Meghan surrounded by several Greenville police officers standing in salute of their fallen comrade.
In others, she's shown holding the folded American flag presented to her at Allen's funeral. She also wears a badge tied on a blue ribbon wrapped around her cute baby bump.
"Meghan had the idea to include the policeman in her photos, since she had to do this without her beloved husband," Ellex said. "They are now her protectors."
"The world lost a police officer, but we lost our dear friend, husband, father, son and brother," Ellex said. "I hope that my photographs can help (Meghan) heal and others who may be going through the same situation."
We're glad baby Lennox will have the precious images to look back at when she's older.
