Friday Round-up | Long Island Family Photographer

I'm getting so excited for fall! We are trying to get in some more "Summer Bucket List" items before the weather turns, but I am definitely looking forward to scarf and boot weather. Apple picking! Rhinebeck! I can't wait.  

In the meantime though, we are enjoying our daily walks and playing in the yard. Our garden is doing so well - we are pretty proud of it, being first time gardeners! It is a tiny bit sad to see it getting dark earlier and earlier - the dark is the only thing I really don't enjoy about the colder months!.

Anyway, on to my favorite reads this week. There were some good ones! 

I am intrigued by this cauliflower crust pizza.  This warm balsamic kale salad looks good, too.

Parenting by looking at the big picture. Good reminder! 

I love this set of photos.  

Ergobaby now makes a swaddle! 

This BBQ Chicken Corn Bread Pie looks amazing! 

Giant Jenga! What a fun idea for a party! 

I have four pairs of chucks - I love them so much! Here are five ways you can style your chucks for fall. 

Um, another amazing-looking recipe: Crispy Buttermilk Baked Chicken and Corn Bread Biscuit Sliders!

Jamie Beck has been one of my favorite photographers for years. I've followed her tumblr since the beginning. I was super star struck when I saw her one time on the UWS. Here she answers 20 questions.  

Good tips on approaching a photo walk. I've started taking photo walks every Saturday between my two shows. I love it.
