Elijah's First Birthday!

Oh this little man! He's so incredibly sweet! I've loved watching him grow up over the past year- from being a teeny little squish, to sitting up on his own, and now he's a year old! He was teething pretty badly the day of our session but I seriously would never have guessed. He was so smiley and happy! Nicho and Alanah are completely smitten with their boy and are wrapped around his adorable fingers. Elijah twists his tongue like crazy and babbles the most adorable baby talk! He's got a lot to say and it'll be fun over the next couple of years to see his personality grow as he can tell everyone what's going on in that cute head of his! It was so fun to be at the Santa Barbara Courthouse for the session- the architecture, grass, and trees create a stunning backdrop no matter which side of the courthouse you're on. 

I'm so grateful to have been able to capture Eli's first birthday and look forward to seeing him grow! Happy Birthday little man <3
