An Edmonton photographer found a striking way to include a couple's late son in their family photos.
Jodi and Ted Parent lost their son Cole to brain cancer three years ago. His death devastated the family, leaving daughter McKenna as the only child.
"When the mother contacted me about newborn photos I asked her if she would be interested in the concept," photographer Natalie D'Aoust told BuzzFeed Canada. "And she immediately was thrilled by the idea."
The positive reaction to the photos has been overwhelming, D'Aoust said. "It's so nice that people are all so moved by the pictures."
