August was a beast. Period. I am still trying to make sense of all the change and recover from this last month of summer. But we rallied for Annikah’s 12th birthday and headed to one of our happy places- Bibi & Babu’s lake house. Annikah wanted to celebrate her birthday with one of her besties at Lake Geneva! I did a friend lifestyle photography session for them & we did it up right by living our best lake life which included water skiing, tubing, annual fishing derby, grilling out, swimming off the pier, boating, kayaking, & having not much agenda but being together (when the rain did not cramp our style that is). I am very aware as I look at these images that these times with our little people; however exhausting, are fleeting and these memories are precious.
