Elliott's parents, Elizabeth and Victor, warned us that he was a real ladies' man. They said he was a total flirt. It was hard to believe any one year old could have game that strong until he got in front of our cameras.
He's not yet walking (but oh, so close) but Mom told us he loves to pull up on things and do big stands. And, she was not kidding! Thank goodness for us keeping this crate on hand where ever we go, because he had a blast with it!
Seriously! If there was a "Baby of the Month" calendar, I am pretty sure Elliott would win for September! I just love how the blue in his plaid shirt brings out his gorgeous eyes.
I love that you can sense how small he still is in this photo. The way he's grasping onto Mom & Dad's fingers so tightly - taking those tentative baby steps. It won't be long before he's walking and running around. We're so glad they have these precious photos to remind them of this special time in all of their lives.
Elliott also brought along one of his favorite friends to celebrate his birthday - The one and only Pooh Bear. We were fortunate to get to shoot this session on a gorgeously breezy day. The sun going down behind Elliott makes this photo whimsical and timeless.
I don't think we could've asked for an easier first birthday photo shoot. Elliott and his parents were an absolute dream to photograph and we cannot wait to keep making magic as he grows up.
