How Can I Say...

When I saw pics of someone's newly born baby, I wanted to say she looked like the younger version of my sister. So can I say she looks like my sister when she's little? Otherwise how can I say that correctly?

"She looks just like my sister when she was little"

You can also use the idiomatic "She takes after my sister"

What about :

"She is the spitting image of my sister when she was little".

You can't say "She takes after my sister" if she and your sister aren't related. Otherwise it sounds a bit dodgy.
