He looked particularly smart as earlier that day the 41-year-old had taken him to the barbers, before cooking his favourite pasta dinner.
However, unbeknownst to her at the time, this would be the last time she'd ever see her eldest son alive.
Just minutes after she'd taken the photo, Liam was killed by a hit-and-run driver.
Now heartbroken Vicky is speaking out in memory of her beloved son – after the man behind the wheel, Daniel Beck, now 34, was let out of prison after only serving half his sentence.
Vicky, a support worker from Holywell in Flintshire, North-East Wales, says: "Liam was the kindest soul and loved by everyone.
“We had the best day before he went out – I cooked his favourite tea, Spaghetti Bolognese, to make sure he'd lined his stomach.
“I made sure to get his hair cut and picked out some clothes for him as he mainly had sports clothes.
"Before he left I made him stand for some pictures because he looked so lovely.
"Little did I know that it would be the last picture of him. As soon as I uploaded them to Facebook, he was already gone."
