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.
