WOW! It’s 2018 guys! And really if you think about it we are almost through January. Seriously, blows my mind how fast time flies.
Jessica reached out to me back in the fall about doing a tribute session for the kids father, Officer Russell Wiegratz, and their grandfather AKA Papa CHPD officer Daniel Wiegratz. Jessica and I tossed around some ideas for months to prep for this session and make it one to remember. Jessica, I think we nailed it! These photos not only show the love these kids had for their father and Papa but this is a part of their life they will look back and treasure forever. Amara and Zane came ready to represent the love and passion they have for these two brave men in their lives. Being a part of the First Responder Community takes a lot of courage and strength. Not only do the first responders themselves sacrifice something but the spouses, children and their families do too. Many of nights Riley and I see Sean run out the door to a call knowing what danger he is putting himself in to help someone else. The media has really put a bad rep on Police officers in the past couple years and it really upsets me. Yes there are some bad apples but we need to also look at all the good ones out there too. We need to hear more of the good stories not just the bad ones who are mixed in the bunch. Please take the time to thank a fellow first responder for all they do. They are putting their lives on hold to help others and miss out on events to keep the community a safer and better place to live. Being able to make document this part of Jessica, Amara, Zane and Riker’s life I thank them for the ultimate sacrifice they have given! Like the saying goes, I got your 6!
