I recently had the pleasure of meeting Elijah and his parents. Elijah brought his favorite Elmo toy to his session. At the beginning of his session, he was very quite. His parents brought his favorite Elmo stuffed animal, which helped us in the beginning. After Elmo broke the ice, I had Elijah take a few pictures with his mom and dad to help him get comfortable. After that he was all smiles!
Before their session Elijah's mom told me that he was a joy to be around and she could have been more right. He is a sweet and fun little guy. She also told me that Elijah loves to play music (the drums), playing with his dog and running in circles. I think my favorite part of our session was when Elijah began running to the set, stoping, smiling and then running back to us. He did it in such a controlled fashion, but the smile on his face and in his eyes told me that he was having fun!
Since Elijah was curious, but cautious at the beginning of his session, I decided to have him take some pictures with mom and dad first. Once he saw how this whole photo thing worked, he did a great job! I mean, look at that sweet smile!
