Who Doesn't Love A Newborn!

I know I love a newborn. I love one that will sleep through most of the photo shoot and let me prop her, move her and position her in all different ways and stay asleep or barley fuss at all.

This little baby Rachel is only 3 weeks old and I had the opportunity to do her newborn shots on Saturday morning. We had a great time and her mom, auntie and grandma oohed and awed at every different prop and position I put her in.

Go back up top and take a look at that 1st picture. The picture with that little bear in it. This little bear is in memory of Rachel's big sister. Her sister passed away from SIDS a few years back. Rachel's grandma has her own company ( just something she does on the side ) making bears. She takes clothing from someone that has passed away ( it can be a new born, a teenager, a grandma, mom or dad, anyone ) and makes the bear ( the entire thing ) out of clothing that people have sent her. So that little Pooh Outfit was once worn on her big sister.

They asked me to place the wings on the bear because they know that her big sister is watching over her. It brought tears to my eyes to hear the story.

I was just pleased and happy to be able to take this little newborns pictures. I was glad that we where able to incorporate her sister into some of her pictures. I know this was important and special to them. So it meant a lot to me.

The pictures turned out amazing. What a perfect little baby she was!

Oh that is such a sad story. No one should ever have to loose a child. On a happier note...those pictures are adorable. What a hard sleeper she was! I love that last one.
