Happy camper (Elijah Phoenix turns 1) / by Julie Cruz

It seems like just yesterday I was taking this little guy's newborn photos. Yep, our nephew is officially 1 now (as of September 17th) and is one of the most quiet, cute and mellow babies ever! Since they were late to the shoot, and we were losing light quickly (and they had a dinner party to go to), I only had about 30 minutes to work with....but luckily Elijah is a super easy going baby (especially considering he was asleep when they got there - most babies would freak out), so all went awesome for what turned out to be a mini session. Oh and the teepee was made for his birthday party (which was on Saturday) so it was perfect for the shoot as well. Check this cutie out. Soon he'll be walking and talking.....and before they blink he'll be 2!
