Before she flew in from Florida last week, Kaitlin called me to make sure I could make it down to Lake of the Ozarks for family photos. I jumped at the chance to catch up with her, her family, and that sweet water slide.
I needed to be down there by the 4th to make sure I could get everyone (Kaitlin has two sisters) before they scattered off back into the world.
Lindsay lives in Chicago with her hubs, Alex.
Mickey is currently a flight attendant (maybe she’ll find that plus one while on her travels)! 😉
While Kaitlin, Michael, and Mia live in Florida!
Their parents, Dana & Rob, usually only come to the Lake for a couple weeks a year. They travel around to some of their other properties during the rest of the summer/winter months.
There was a small window of opportunity to capture them all together. Success!
Plus, we got a lot of other shots. Like the obligatory mama and her girls shot (hey, and a 3-generation photo!):
And, of course, while I had all three sisters there — we had to recreate this gem!
Glorious, right? Next time, I will make Lindsay and Kaitlin rock those pony tails again.
Next up, we had to convince 10-month-old Mia that it was a good idea to smile for photos.
She could be swayed. There was a lot of jumping, funny faces, and weird baby toy noises going on in front of her, though. #WorthIt
The blanket you see in this photo below is one that Mia’s Great-Grandma had made for Kaitlin when she was a baby!
But Mia wasn’t all smiles and sunshine. She gave mom and dad a peek of what she’s gonna look like come age 13 or so:
So, adore those smiles while you still can!
Thanks, Dullard clan, for letting me capture your beautiful family! Hope to see you next year!
