Emelia’s Christmas Gift to Sean

This year I wanted to do something unique and meaningful for Christmas to give Sean. It will be our 4th Christmas together, the 3rd one I will be spending inside the visit room on Christmas Eve & Christmas day. I am only allowed to send him pictures, letters, or books so I decided to do a special photo shoot with the chihuahua we adopted from Front Street Shelter in June. My friend Elyse Smith with Beautiful Disaster Photography took these photos and I am sending them to Sean for  Christmas.




Sean designed and drew the artwork for the ink on my wrist and the tattoo artist, Terri at Sacramento Capitol Tattoo, did an exact copy of his original design so it’s like Sean literally drew intertwining infinity symbols on my skin. It is symbolic of our love and a celebration of our shared Irish heritage.




Thank you to Elyse for working with our family to help create something that we will always treasure!

About Sean & Emelia

In 2003 Sean O'Brien was wrongfully convicted in El Dorado County, CA and sentenced to Life Without Parole at the age of 16. We have been friends since grade school and are now married. Sean and I move forward together with the knowledge of his innocence, our faith in God, and hope that he will rightfully regain his freedom. Until then we embrace our journey wherever it may take us, cherishing each moment we have together and staying true to ourselves. This blog is about the past we share, our fight for freedom, life as it exists for us, and our path toward the future, whatever that may hold. Thank you for allowing us to be heard. God bless.
