There are a lot of new mothers who gave birth during and after Hurricane Harvey, and one photographer captured a beautiful moment as a result of such a devastating time for Texas.

Emily Chisholm Chimen welcomed a baby girl named Hope 10 days before they had to be rescued from their home in Orange during Harvey.

She had photographer, Noelle Guidry Mills, do a newborn photo shoot of baby Hope, sharing how she survived the hurricane.

"We thought it would be fitting to do some of her newborn photos in that boat," Mills wrote on Facebook.

Hope is pictured wearing a white onesie with the words, "I survived Hurricane Harvey" on the back.

The photos show her laying peacefully on top of a life jacket in a boat.
