Wisconsin Badgers vs. Michigan State - Big 10 Tournament [Chicago, IL]

My home state Badgers are playing Michigan State today in the Big 10 Tournament and I couldn’t help but reminisce on these past newborn sessions that incorporated both teams. I LOVE March basketball season and excitement is in the air, especially with the tournament being here in Chicago. Both of these babes come from a house divided and though it pained me to include Spartan things in their photos(!) I now love that little E is a Spartan fan like his mom and little H is a Badger girl like her dad! The fun competition in this family makes me smile! May the best team win but… Let’s Go Bucky! #gored

Reese Turns ONE! {Madison, WI First Birthday}

My sweet niece Reese turned one this past weekend and we celebrated her in style! You know I had to take some photos to document her big milestone and she was one of the easiest one-year olds I’ve ever photographed!! (I think it helped that her big sister was assisting me!) Usually it’s the other way around when it comes to my nieces :) Reesie a March 1st baby so we did a spring theme for her photo shoot - tulips and tutus. She’s going to grow up to love tulips like her Auntie Coney, I just know it. I even got to be in a photo with her and her big sister. Thanks so much to my sister for grabbing a quick photo of us all.

I love you, baby girl!

Dominican Republic Destination Wedding - Jellyfish Restaurant Punta Cana

Is it weird to start a blog post with an apology?! I would like to start by saying I apologize for the sheer volume of photos in this post. I tried SO hard to narrow down Emma & Tito’s sneak peek but this is the best I could do. I’m in love with this wedding and if I could marry Emma & Tito myself, I would! This day was P-E-R-F-E-C-T and I am obsessed. I LOVE how radiant Emma is and I LOVE how Tito looks at her. It makes my heart melt into a giant puddle of goo. Just from the venue and the details alone, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite weddings of all time, but I did not expect it to make me tear up the most I’ve ever done while editing these. (Is it weird that I get teary-eyed while editing my own photos?!) Their first dance/performance was one for the books and the love and support from every single family member and friend was so heartfelt.

Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana was incredible in all ways possible and the food was the best I’ve ever had at any wedding. And I’ve photographed a lot of weddings! If you’re getting married in Punta Cana, you absolutely must add it to your list of places to check out.

Thank you Emma & Tito for having me document your special day and for making me feel like part of your family! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek. Much love, friends!
