It’s finally feeling like your standard fall day here in New York. Chilly and wet. The leaves in Central Park are even starting to show their fall colors ever so slightly. I’m looking forward to a cozy night in with my husband this evening (hopefully with a fire).
On Sunday, Julia Dags and I will be shooting lots of new content for you all. Get excited because there is LOADS of great content coming your way!
