When contacted by Tracy, the mama in these photos, back almost 3 months ago, I did not have a clue how much I would be touched by the story of her little unborn angel Liam. This couple has so much courage, so much heart and so much love to give their little boy. At only 13 weeks they found out that something was “different” about their little guy. He was diagnosed with Limb Body Wall Complex, a fatal condition. They demonstrate such courage and faith to continue this pregnancy, praying for a miracle for their wee little sweetheart. They continue on, nurturing this baby showing even the unborn child what amazing parents they are. They have taken him to the zoo, Milwaukee Brewers games and to 4th of July fireworks so he too will get a chance to experience all of the amazing things in life. They continue to grow this child with prayers that his heart and lungs will become strong enough to be operated on after birth. They love, cherish and support each other through this journey of not knowing what’s next. They pray for the miracle that Liam will beat ALL odds. They pray that they get to spend an hour or two or even a lifetime with their little angel, that he will take that percent of a percent chance and survive this. Tracy & Luke, I thank you for sharing the journey of little Liam with me. I thank you for being such amazing and encouraging people.
Last night Tracy went into labor at 32 weeks. The doctors were able to stop the labor & think that Liam could possibly continue to grow and get stronger for a couple more days or weeks. I ask that anyone reading this, please pause and take a moment to pray for this precious family. Pray for strength throughout the coming day and years.
Here they are Tracy, Luke and Liam on their 2 year wedding anniversary.

Maybe I’m just a softy or maybe it was just because EVERYTHING was so incredibly beautiful…..but I cried all the way through this ceremony. What an amazingly beautiful and relaxing place for a wedding and what a sweet gorgeous couple! Lynn & Wade, thank you so much for allowing me to be the photographer for your special day. I wish you all the happiness in the world.
Also a special thank you to the Sabor Resort in Cozumel for being so welcoming and accomodating.

It was my absolute pleasure to get to spend some time lovin’ and snugglin’ on this tiny little beauty on Saturday. This was the first opportunity that Wisconsin weather has given me to shoot outdoors with a newborn babe. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect little princess for the “job.” She was just perfect. NOT ONLY is she GORGEOUS….but she was the CHAMP of sleeping! I have never had a newborn so comfortable and sleepy as she was. I had about 5-10 minutes of her with her eyes open, then it was back to dream land for her.
I thank her mommy and daddy for being so welcoming of me into their home and being so trusting of me to photograph their beautiful 8 day old baby girl.
Here she is, precious doll baby Danielle Irene.

Susan contacted me just last week in need of photos super quick for her corporate press release. I was a little nervous when she said she wanted corporate headshots….not that I couldn’t do it or that I couldn’t pull it off, just that it’s not my typical “style.” I knew we would work together just fine when she told me that she wanted “non-traditional, not stuffy” headshots, headshots that captured her personality. She and I completely clicked & I enjoyed every mintue of our session last night in between the thunderstorms. She is one of those people you meet and immediatly know that she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is the outside.
Susan, it was great meeting you and I look forward to working with you more in the future!!!
Life is a journey and it is love that makes that journey worthwhile.
I’ve watched this “little girl” grow up and become a beautiful young lady. It does my heart so much good to see that she has found an amazing love. A love so perfect for her, a love that will last a lifetime. I was so honored to be asked to shoot this gorgeous couple’s wedding in Cozumel, Mexico at the end of June. They are adorable together and I can not wait for that magical day in Cozumel. Lynn & Wade, I wish you all the happiness from here to eternity.
