Family Vacation at Lake Delavan
In August Eli and I headed east to hang out with the Skrypek family for a day of their vacation at Lake Delavan. We'd previously photographed one of the family branches and we'll be shooting a Skrypek wedding this winter so it was an awesome way to get to know them even better. The day was packed with boat rides, cannonballs, runs down the slip n' slide, delicious, frantic family meals, and even liquid stitches--luckily there are a couple doctors in the family so a first aid kit wasn't too hard to come by.
We loved having the entire day to spend with the whole family. There's something incredibly magical about doing family sessions this way--eventually everyone got comfortable and we made honest photos that genuinely reflect their family....and we got to hang out with some pretty rad kids--day made.
Skrypeks, thank you for having us and for making us feel so welcome. We had so much fun! Truth be told, it was a little hard leaving at the end of the day--we'll be seeing you soon...
