In September, I had the privilege of attending and photographing the birthday party of one of the sweetest babies alive. Eli's family from both sides gathered in Chapel Hill on a rainy afternoon to celebrate him. Although the weather changed the destination plans, their new home made for a great change of venue. As we talked of Minions, ate delicious barbecue, and watched Eli open gifts, I could not help but reminisce over the wonderful times I had while being Eli's nanny in his first few months. He is the most smiley baby I have ever encountered. I count myself lucky to be able to babysit him and photograph him and his sweet family which truly translated through the photos I captured at his first birthday party.
