FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (FOX 13) - A newborn was posed for her first photo shoot with items of her father’s, who she never got to meet.
Christopher Michael Harris was never able to hold his daughter. The 25-year-old was killed in Afghanistan last summer, just after learning his wife was pregnant.
Christian Michelle Harris was born March 17 to mother Brittany Harris.
In tribute, she arranged a photo shoot of her baby girl with her husband's military uniform, boots, and the American flag she was given.
Brittany says the shoot was to "capture as much of Chris’ spirit" as she could.
Spc. Harris was killed in August 2017 when an IED hit his vehicle. Harris was born in St. Petersburg, Florida before moving to Sanford, North Carolina, where he graduated in 2010.
