Boy Creates Heartwarming 'Up' Photoshoot With 90-Year-Old Great-Grandparents

A boy named Elijah was given a special gift for his fifth birthday. His mother, Rachel Perman, is a part-time photographer, so she told her son he could do any fun, fantasy photoshoot he wanted.

The boy chose to do an Up-themed shoot. The Disney Pixar classic is his favorite film.


But it went well beyond Elijah just dressing up as Russell, the boy from the film. He had the ideas to incoprorate his 90-year-old great-grandparents to portray the characters Carl and Ellie. Richard and Caroline Bain -- their real names -- were happy to participate.

The results, which Perman posted to Facebook, were amazing.


Perman told CBS that the shoot was "a celebration for me and them!"

Soon after Elijah and his twin sister were born five years aho, Perman was diagnosed with cancer.

"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. 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."

She picked an incredible way to celebrate the occasion.
