20 Reasons Why Summer Day in the Life Sessions are the Coolest

It’s summer and that’s a big relief to me because I couldn’t keep my daughter inside any longer! I’m so happy to spend time outside with her enjoying the pool, bubble machine and going on walks. The summer is absolutely made for Day in the Life sessions. There are so many fun things to do with your family and evening light after dinner is just really, really beautiful.

I believe every family needs a Day in the Life session. We are having ours done in July. I’m really looking forward to having pictures that are proof that I’m doing a good job. That’s another blog post. This one is suppose to be fun and funny, so let’s move along with that!
