I get SOOOOO excited when I get a request to photograph a newborn baby. I just can't hardly stand it!! I tell the moms that the suggested timeframe is 3-10 days after delivery, mainly because the babies lose their fetal position pretty quickly. This is true, but it's also because there is NOTHING like the feel of a newborn baby's skin...with that precious little peach fuzz, and those completely awesome little noises they make. Even the cry doesn't bother me. It gives me a reason to nestle and cuddle more. LOL. This precious little doll's mother was in our youth group over 13 years ago. Wow, time sure does fly! Precious little Gracen is blessed with an awesome mom and dad, as well as a PRECIOUS, proud big brother, Coleman!! ENJOY!
