The 2009 Pixar movie, Up, is a favourite to children of all ages. And baby Eli is also a fan. His family says he is fascinated by the story of Carl Fredricksen, and what better way to celebrate the little man than to do a shoot inspired by this sweet tale. Photographer Carleigh from Sweet Poppy Studios managed to find a real life- tree atop a hill- like the place where the film characters, Carl and Ellie, would pass time watching clouds. It captured the whole essence of the movie, turning it from fiction to reality, and made the shoot even much more special! The theme perfectly complements Eli’s humorous and adventurous spirit. His mom says, “He is a fearless explorer, and is very interested in what the world around him has to offer.”
Every morning, I wake up to find Eli smiling at me. If I say “Good morning little one”, he finds it hilarious and giggles- a true, heartfelt giggle. It simply makes my day. His cheerful face, reminds me every single day, that he is sincerely the new and greatest adventure in my life!
