Friday Round-up | New York Photographer

Happy Friday everyone! We are headed off Long Island in a few hours for a weekend away. Headed upstate to the woods for some fun with the family. I'm looking forward to some new scenery to photograph! Taking pictures of my kids jumping on our living room couch gets a little boring after you've done it 8000 times! 

But before I head out, I wanted to share all my favorite links from this week around the web with you - so grab a cup and coffee, and let's go!
