Grieving Wife Gets Photographer To Photoshop Images of Her Late Husband Into Her Maternity Photographs

Marriage remembers most of us many good emotions and thoughts. But sometimes there might be undesirable situations or unexpected things in marriage. Stephanie and Stuart Jackson couple was one of those couples who lived an unfortunate accident. Stephanie lost her husband in a fatal motorcycle accident on December 14, 2017, during her second trimester.

She was just 28 years old and had two children, an almost 2-year-old son, Dominic, and her 6-year-old stepson, Maliq. Stephannie writes on her blog ”Our world came to a screeching halt. This was not in our plans, this was supposed to be a normal Thursday just like every other Thursday night.”

At just 28-years-old, Stephanie Maynetto-Jackson tragically lost her husband, Stuart Jackson in a fatal motorcycle accident.

After Stuart’s passing, Stephanie decided to commemorate her husband with a unique family photoshoot. She asked photographer Phoenix Sipin to take the images, and digitally incorporate Stuart into the scenes. During the photoshoot, emotions were understandably running high. Sipin remembers, “It was raining all over the island except at our location…We kept saying Stuart was there helping keep the rain away and luckily all we had were gray clouds.” After the photoshoot, Sipin immediately started editing the photos. She admits, “Adding her late husband, Stuart, into the images was one of the hardest things I had to do in my life so far. I cried through all of them.”

Stephanie gave birth to her son in May 2018 and named him Stuart II “SJ” Jackson, in honor of his father.

Already a mother and pregnant with a second child at the time, the now-widow knew she had to be strong for her family.
