Laura welcomed sweet Liam into the world on December 5, 2017 weighing 9lbs 7oz. You see little Liam was diagnosed with a mass on his lung at their 20 week ultrasound.
You can learn more about baby Liam’s condition on their Go Fund Me page Their medial team made a plan for Laura and her family to relocate to Seattle for care. A few weeks before they moved we planned this beautiful styled maternity shoot. Laura brought her best friend Rachelle who has been with her from the beginning. Everyone deserves a best friend in life and Rachelle is that to Laura!
“This girl has suffered through hours of driving over passes to appointments, sometimes after working a 12 hour shift the night before without complaint. She’s been there at my side and cried with me when we received terrible news and also hugged and cried with me during encouraging news-remember we’re both pregnant, super emotional! She’s reminded me how strong I am and encouraged me when needed. So thankful for this beautiful soul that has become such a huge part of my family and I’s lives”
