Fall Photography Fun in the Park

A few days ago the weather was disrespectful giving us 30-something degrees in NYC. I was extremely happy the sun came out on Sunday because I’m not mentally ready for parka season.

Photo Diary of Incredible Doors in Morocco

Incredible Doors in Morocco

Since I stayed home all summer, my only vacation of Q3 was spent on a girls trip to Morocco.
