Friday Round-up | Long Island Photographer

Happy Friday, everyone! Anyone have anything festive planned for the weekend? I am filming my last client film for the season on Sunday, which includes going Christmas tree shopping - I'm looking forward to it! We will probably go and get our own tree next weekend. We went to the local nursery this past Wednesday and saw Santa and the reindeer. My kids are getting are starting to get really excited for Christmas, which means I had better start shopping! Isn't it crazy how fast this year flew by?
