So, we’re kind of obsessed with Hillsboro-based photographer Sunny Mancuso’s 365 project. Every day, she shares a photo from her family’s life — sweet moments of reality, from hula hoops on a muddy day in the backyard to being goofy at the grocery store. For our June/July cover, she chose a shot of her daughter that, to us, summons summer and all it promises. Follow her amazing work at facebook.com/SunnyMancusoPhotography.
