Every time I photograph this boy I fall deeper and deeper in love with him. At a mere 4 years old he is quite possibly the most charming, eloquent, delightful, polite, funny, joyful little human being I have ever had the pleasure to get to know. I am always humbled by his "old soul" tendencies but this last visit just blew me away. He speaks like a grown up with an expansive vocabulary but with the sensibilities of a little boy. I just couldn't get enough of him. Fortunately, I think the feelings were mutual seeing as he wouldn't let go of my hand to which I playfully joked to his sweet mom something about being "second fiddle" for a change! HA! Nicole is my birthday twin (same day, same year) and we get along beautifully so it's always a pleasure getting to hang out with the whole family. (Not to be forgotten, thank you to David for chauffeuring us around and carrying gear!) I just absolutely adore this family and they are always well worth the drive down to Pacific Grove! I can't wait to see what Elliott becomes as he grows up, I imagine great things are on the horizon for this incredibly bright, charming, and soulful child.
