It warms my heart when I get the opportunity to follow families throughout the different seasons of their lives, and photograph their memories for them along the way to treasure forever. It seems like it was yesterday when I took Lakyn + Jacob’s gorgeous maternity photos (view them here!). Now in just the blink of an eye, they have welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world.

After less than a month of being new parents, this sweet family asked me to take photos of them again! This perfect little family welcomed me into their home to take portraits of their new little babe, and to capture the love that they all shared for each other. We opened up all their glorious giant windows to welcome in all the beautiful natural light, and went to work!

Kolson Allen was bright eyed and brand new, and no longer the adorable bump in his momma’s tummy! He is by far one of the cutest little babies I have ever seen, and was so inquisitive about everything. His big gorgeous eyes seemed to be taking in everything they could, and was trying to soak in as much information about the world as possible. He had SO many sweet expressions! He smiled, cooed, smirked, wrinkled his little nose and was sure to let us know exactly how we has feeling the whole time!

I was dying over the darling little socks that he had on, and the different outfits that his momma had picked out for him. He repped K-State + John Deere, sported a cute little onesie, and even had teeny tiny little jeans and suspenders! Baby clothes hit me right in the uterus every time- they are seriously the cutest things you could possibly ever buy.

We wrapped up the session with some gorgeous portraits of the whole family snuggling and holding each other. The overspilling love in their hearts was evident in every photo, and it was impossible to not grin from ear to ear while taking these gorgeous photos. At this point little Kolson was winding down and almost ready for a nap, but he was a complete trooper and let us get some seriously amazing portraits of mom, dad and baby.

I delivered an immense gallery to Lakyn + Jacob, completely full of both full color photos and fine art black and white images. This was one of my largest galleries to date, because I seriously could not imagine not giving them any of these sweet pictures! If you take a good photo with me, I will deliver it. I am not going to toss any photos away just for numbers sake!

It was difficult to narrow it down, but here is a small portion of my absolute favorites from this session! I cannot wait to meet up with this family again and to see how big Kolson is!
