Adalyn is a year now
On the occasion of Adalyn's one year birthday, James honoured his wife by going to the same spot they took their pregnancy shoot to recreate those memories with the baby's birthday shoot.
Aguilar was dressed in a pink gown, with her baby bump featuring prominently in the photos. In the new shoot, Alvarez dressed Adalyn in a pink dress as well and posed her in the places her mother was in the previous one.
According to Upworthy, the effect is sadly touching and achingly beautiful—a reminder of the gift of life.
