When police officer Allen Jacobs died in the line of duty in March, he left behind two sons and a grieving, pregnant widow. Meghan Jacobs was carrying their little girl, Lennox, due in July, and was now faced with raising their children on her own as she dealt with her own grief.
She asked one of her close friends, Jessie Ellex of J. Ellex Photography, to capture the emotional photographs for her. They incorporated the flag laid on Allen’s casket into a number of the photos, and many of Allen’s fellow officers participated in the shoot, showing their support for the grieving widow and letting her know that they will always be there to protect and defend her and her growing family.
The images Jessie captured are nothing short of stunning, and they will serve not only as a special reminder for Meghan of her husband’s love, but also as a keepsake for Allen and Meghan’s soon-to-be-born little girl. Even though Lennox will never know her dad here on earth, she will be able to look at these pictures and know what a wonderful and beloved man her father truly was.
