Remember when summer felt like it would last forever? Lifestyle photographer Summer Murdock (no pun intended) captures the joys of childhood when school is over and world is full of wonder. The Salt Lake City-based artist believes that kids should be allowed to be themselves and shies away from posed, forced photos of children. At an age when even the smallest everyday things can be a source of rapture, Murdock’s young subjects are bursting with energy and fascination. Whether you spent your summers crashing with the ocean waves or screaming through a backyard sprinkler, we hope these images remind you of all those idle summer days from long ago.
