Miss L | Bloomington Normal Photographer

This little girl, was a complete joy to photograph.  We were silly, we laughed, and I even learned what “tummy alligator” is.. Miss L’s smile completely lights up the room, as well as your heart.  Hope you have a GREAT birthday, L!  It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely mommy too! =)
