Only a few days left and summer holidays will officially begin around here! Kids will be out of school and I'm feeling really excited to leave behind that morning school routine.

Summer is a magical time and so many memories are made during this season of our children's life. Summer is a reminder of childhood and the spirit of living in the moment. Recording those summertime moments can be a fun and very rewarding project for the whole family.

I've compiled a "Summer Photo Bucket List" with 30 prompts and 16 photography tips to give you a little jump start on recording your summer memories!

Those photography tips were inspired by the questions I'm most frequently asked. Play with these tips, allow yourself make mistakes, but most of all have fun as you are here to make some life long memories with your children!

Your summer bucket list is perfect as an actual checklist. You can print it on to white card stock and stick it on your fridge, or tuck it in your pocket.  Don't forget to share your favorite summer shots from the list and post your photos on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #hellosummerstories.

I will randomly select one winner from the list of all participants sharing their images between now and 11.59PM on August 31, 2017. The winner will receive a photo session of his choice with Anita Perminova Portraits and Films.
