366 Hit List: July | Long Island, NY Family Photographer & Filmmaker

Another month of summer has zoomed on by! I cannot believe that it is August already! We have been having such a great time exploring our favorite places on Long Island, spending time in our yard with the sprinkler, as well as taking advantage of central air and embracing good old art projects indoors! Summer is such a great time for family photography - the light, the energy, the adventures. So many fantastic opportunities for capturing moments. And video, too! We went to Norman Levy Park and Preserve in Merrick a couple of weeks ago, and I had no intention of shooting any video there, but it was such a gorgeous day, I walked away with a film's worth of footage

So with that, here are some of my favorite moments in July!

And my mood board for July. I love the juxtaposition of the black and whites and the vibrant greens and blues of the color images.

And finally, one second every day in July! I continue to ADORE this project every month!

Okay August - you're up!

Follow the blog circle around to see what the rest of the ladies were up to in July. First up is the ultra-talented Sarah!
