A man whose pregnant wife tragically died in a car crash recreated the maternity pictures he took with their daughter.
James Alvarez’s wife, Yesenia Aguilar, was 35 weeks pregnant when she was hit by an alleged drunk driver last August. Their child Adalyn Rose Alvarez-Aguilar was delivered via c-section after the accident.
For their daughter’s first birthday, James decided to recreate the maternity photos he took while Yesenia was pregnant with Adalyn.
“Adalyn’s birthday was coming up and unfortunately her birthday is the same day I lost my wife,” James said.
“I wanted to do something meaningful and special to celebrate her birthday and honor my wife.”
Dressed in a baby pink dress like her late mother, little Adalyn and her father James posed for the birthday photoshoot.
“I had someone make a pink dress for my daughter to wear and we went to the same exact location, around the same time that we did the maternity shoot,” James shared.
“We tried to reenact it to make the pictures identical and it was truly amazing.”
The father of one said he became emotional when he saw the photos side-by-side.
“It reminded me of the day we took those pictures and how beautiful my wife looked,” he expressed.
“Looking at Adalyn dressed up like her mom, it was very emotional and touching. It reminded me how proud and how happy my wife would be seeing how gorgeous she is.”
“I love the idea. It’s going to be something memorable,” he added.
“My daughter will never know my wife like I did, but I hope I can one day show her all these beautiful moments and explain to her exactly how her mommy was and commemorate my wife.”
