Summer coming to an end is the most bittersweet part of the year for me. I love spending the summer months with my kids, but let’s be real. By the end middle of August, I am itching for them to go back so that I have a little time to myself. Before they head back there is one thing I have to make sure to do, though… capture an adorable back-to-school photo!
This is my way of capturing exactly who they were at that moment and it’s so fun to look back at the end of the year and see how much they have grown!
