Friday Round-up | Long Island Photographer

A little housekeeping! In the new year, I will be making a few changes around the blog because I want to keep fresh and new and helpful content for you. I am also trying to dial back on my own screen time, so in order to do that, I am going to be moving these Round-up posts to a monthly rotation instead of weekly. Hopefully this way I can curate the best quality links for you and give myself the time to write posts on other topics.

But for now, a few reads for this Friday morning.
