Family, Summer, & Skaneateles Lake

We don't get to see our extended family enough but we were lucky this year when almost all of the Colorado Buttolphs' vacationed on Skaneateles lake (we missed you Ed, Andrew, and the twins)! Here are a few of my favorites from a perfect summer evening, keep me in mind to photograph your next family gathering...I love capturing all the little moments that make up life.
