Gibson | One Year Cake Smash | Champaign, IL

Suzy | Styled Maternity Session | Golden Hour | Champaign County

The glow of an expectant mother is only closely rivaled by the glow of the "golden hour sun."  They are both magical in their own special way.  One glows with the promise and hope of new life, and the other with the hope and promise of a beautiful evening and the promise and hope of a new day to come.
