This is a baby close to my heart.

Several years ago I worked as a dorm parent.  Rachelle’s mommy Risa is the first of my students to get hitched and have a little one.  I feel in a way like little Rachelle is part of my family.

And she is oh, so very adorable.  I had the BEST time photographing her, she is such a sweetie and literally was posing for the camera.  The second I pointed the camera at her she would stop in her tracks and make eye contact!  Unheard of.  And she even slept a bit for me, too.

So, so, SO cute.  Just look.newborn girl in white dressnewborn yawning with teddy bearssleeping newbornnewborn feet
