    Personally I like 1 and 4. No real reason I just like them. She's a cute baby.

    A really close shot of just the face seems to work nice... and sleeping babies always make cute pics :)

    I'd lose the pink outfit too- just a plain white diaper would be more timeless (or wrapped up in a blanket).

    Did you try any black and whites?

    She's adorable. :thumbup:

    I find babies really ugly.... probably a reason why I will most likely not have kids... But anyway good pictures otherwise, some seem a bit out of focus.
