This Adorable “Up” Photoshoot With a 5 Year Old and His Great Grandparents Is Everything
This “UP”-inspired photoshoot featuring Elijah on his 5th birthday has completely won the internet and it’s easy to understand why! According to a recent post on CBS News, when Rachel Perman (Elijah’s mom) told her son he could celebrate his birthday with a photoshoot he was quick to pick his favorite movie – “UP.” In fact he loves the movie so much that he wanted to dress up like the characters from the film even enlisting the help of his great grandparents!
As you can see from the images, Elijah dressed up as Russel with his 90-year-old great grandparents in the roles of Carl and Ellie! It’s incredible how much the real-life Richard and Caroline Bain look like the loveable animated couple!
Elijah’s mom Rachel is a part-time photographer and took the photos, posting them on Facebook, where they quickly went viral.
She had this to say about the driving force behind the photoshoot, “Five years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer right after my twins were born, and had fears if I would even get to see their fifth birthday,” Perman told CBS News. “My oldest was 5 at the time and I hated not knowing if I would get the same time with them that I got with her.”
Rachel was sick for about a year and is now in remission making it to her twins’ fifth birthday — something she was unsure of. So, she wanted to celebrate in a big way. “It’s a celebration for me and them!” she said.
I hope these images put a smile on your face just like they did ours! Have a wonderful weekend Disney friends!
