the cook family // bucyrus, ks

When we were asked to do our first newborn shoot we were like, heck ya! And when it was for a long-time high school friend… we were like, HECK YA! How special it is to see sweet friends in the midst of such meaningful life changes, especially when we’re able to document it for them to have forever?! CRYING for days.

We met Lauren and her family at her mom’s country house in rural Bucyrus, KS which is a little south of KC. The best part wasn’t even that it was magic hour when we arrived or that there were 35(??!!) farm cats running around their property OR that little Cara never cried until the very, very end of our time with her…. nope, the best part was that this new, little family adored each other so so much and it was beautiful. Lauren and Austin are killing the parent game. Their “Cara bean” is very loved.

Take a peek at how our shoot went down below. Blog includes some shots with Cara’s great grandparents who happened to be in town that day. This little fam was so much fun to shoot and we’re SO happy with how these pictures came out! Thanks for letting us into your home and document your family <3
