(June recap #2)

She called it a “huge favor” for coming so far to photograph her sweet new Eliot. I called it an adventure- It was a calm, peaceful, slow paced get-away from the fast lane of summer 2011. After our move, a family wedding, and a four week stay in Salt Lake, it was refreshing. Celebrating and photographing little Eliot was one of the highlights of my summer thus far. And Ruby’s too!

And heaven for Miranda, who got to sleep the whole time I was at it!
