ORANGE, Texas - 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.

"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.
