This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Dr. Tara of Gill Family Chiropractic and her precious little family!!! We met at the apple orchard at The Elegant Farmer in Mukwonago. What a gorgeous setting and OH MY!! What CUTE OVERLOAD!!! We had fun climbing trees, eating some delish apples and just running and playing despite it being slightly chilly and quite windy. It was so fun to getting to know the kiddos and see each of their personalities. Tara thank you for allowing me to capture you sweet family!!!

I love it when I get a call from a family that I have worked with before!! I received a call a few months back from this family letting me know that they were expecting again!! I was so very excited. Did I mention that I LOVE calls like this!!! Just 21 months ago I had the pleasure of capturing their first born son’s newborn photos.
Come to find out, their due date was only a few weeks prior to my very own due date. I decided that their session would be my last before the birth of my own sweet baby #3. Both of these little guys really made me work hard, but man are they ever precious and so worth every minute of it! I feel like the luckiest girl alive to get to do what I love and what I’m passionate about!!! I love watching families grow, getting to hold their babies in my arms and capture these precious moments for them. Thank you once again, Kym and Ross for welcoming me into your home to snuggle and love on your sweet babies!!

It was such an honor to get to photograph this sweet little family. A family of little princesses.
Whew they made me work for it, but it was well worth it. Those big beautiful brown eyes, that deep rich dark hair. Little dolls.

“A life so brief,
A child so small,
You had the power to touch us all.”
To My Dearest Tracy, Luke and Baby Liam,
I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be a part of your love and your story. Your story of amazing courage, faith, love and strength. You have blessed my heart beyond belief. To see you holding on to the strength and love you have for each other. Thank you for allowing me to capture your precious little angel, to hold him, to love him & to kiss him. Liam will forever be a part of my heart.
Please, if there is EVER anything I can do….know that you have my love and support & I will always be here for your family.
SOOOO much love,
♥ Julie MayRee
For those of you who have been praying for Tracy, Luke and Liam, THANK YOU. Thank you from them, thank you from their family and thank you from me. Your outpouring of love has been amazing.
Last night around 8pm I received a call from Luke. Tracy’s water had broke and they had gone to the nearest hospital to them (a 2 hour drive from me.) I grabbed my gear, hopped in the car and drove as quickly as I could. There was a tranquil sunset of pink, purples…just breathtaking. It was Liam’s sunset…a sunset I will remember for the rest of my life.
I continued on my journey & called when I was about 30 minutes out & got voicemail….I was so worried I wouldn’t make it in time. As I was approaching the hospital I received a call from a family member letting me know that baby Liam had been born and they were holding him. By the time I made it up to their room, the sweet little man had gone to be with our Lord. Tracy and Luke received the blessing & the answer to prayer they had been asking for. They were elated that they were able to spend an hour and seven mintues with their precious little angel. I arrived to a room full of family. There were tears, there were smiles…..and there was a beautiful mama cradling her darling angel baby in her arms. Daddy’s face was lit up. I have never seen a daddy doting on their little one the way Luke was with Liam. He was so excited to be Daddy. He was so excited to be holding, touching, feeling his little boy in his arms. He was amazed by his hair, his eyelashes….his little nose, he went on and on . Daddy gave him a bath, fixed his hair and kissed all over him. We spent time photographing Liam, capturing the family loving on him. Soaking up all of the lovin’. As I was photographing the new little family, the way they embraced each other, the way the looked each other and their little man. I fell apart when Luke ran his fingers through Tracy’s hair and said, “you did wonderful baby.” The love and bond these two share is so inspirational. What amazing parents little Liam was blessed with. As I was leaving Tracy’s mom told me to take care of myself and my sweet little baby & to know that my baby has a friend, an angel watching over it……. Today I celebrate two amazing parents & the very short life of a beautiful little boy who will forever and ever be in my heart. Big kisses little Liam Anthony. xo

What a fun bunch this was!!! They traveled up from the Chicago burbs to their lake house where we enjoyed the evening!! There was a total of 7 adults, 8 children and 3 doggies!! OH MY!!! It was kind of a toasty evening, but we made the best of it…we played, we ran, we even finished the evening at the beach. It was 2 hours of pure joy for my heart!!! I really enjoyed every minute of it and I hope they did too!!!
