I was contacted a couple of months before Elian was due about some newborn portraits for him. At the time, Annika and Eli had decided not to find out the gender of their baby, so it made it even more exciting anticipating if I would get to photograph a newborn boy or a newborn girl. Elian was born right before Christmas, so I was able to photograph him in his first few days of life before Christmas! It was so sweet to snuggle a newborn again! Elian was a really sweet baby, and his parents were awesome as well. I enjoyed getting to know them as I photographed their precious little boy.
