3 month old | Bloomington Normal Photographer

I had this little sweetheart back in the studio yesterday.. She was such a precious, petite newborn, and now growing leaps & bounds since I saw her last session just 3 short months ago.  Also nice to see her mommy & daddy again too.. Truly a lovely couple & family of 3, so full of love!  Loved your big, gummy smiles, Miss K!

A flashback to Miss K as a newborn:

And now at 3 months:
