6 Month Old Miss B | Illinois Baby Photographer

Remember this little sweetie? Well she is growing fast!  Now at 6 months, she’s still quite the cutie, and such a doll baby!  She wasn’t handing out the smiles much at her session, but those eyes, that thick hair.. <sigh>  still makes your heart melt, doesn’t it?  Good to see you again, M family! =)
