5-year old Elijah had high hopes with he chose to celebrate his fifth birthday with an “Up” themed photoshoot. He’s a big fan of all the characters in the Pixar flick, so he was thrilled and perfectly suited to dress up as Russell, the boy from the film. But he also had the idea to cast his grandparents in supporting roles so he popped the question. 90-year-old Richard and Caroline happily agreed and everyone completely nailed it.
The boy’s twin-sister celebrated turning 5 with an epic, unicorn-themed photoshoot.
Their mom, and photographer, Rachel Perman was diagnosed with cancer right after her twins were born and the photoshoot was a chance to celebrate a milestone she thought she might not make.
Well, she’s currently in remission, so, “It’s a celebration for me and them!” she told CBS News.
She’s been floored by the attention the photos received, adding that the kids were excited to be the subject of one of her photoshoots, knowing she provided the service for others.
“I had no clue this would receive recognition,” she told Good Morning America. “It’s been fun to see how many people are touched by it! I keep telling the kids, ‘You are good at bringing happiness to us. Now you are making the nation happy, too!'”
