Adorable Photos of Children in the Nebraskan Countryside

Warm golden light, sweet smiles, endless country roads, and pure adorableness are words that come to mind when looking at Jake Olson’s photographs of young children. The Blair, Nebaska-based photographer, who owns his own photography business called Jake Olson Studios, takes portraits that can best be described as “aww”-worthy in their depiction of the warmth and joy that kids radiate.

Olson shoots portraits for a variety of clients, but he really shines when focusing his lens on young subjects. Primarily using natural, outdoor lighting and the vast beauty of the Nebraskan countryside, Olson captures images of children happily playing on dirt roads, running through golden fields, posing with their beloved pets, and showing their love and affection for friends and siblings. The results are stunning, sweet photographs of innocence, youth, and happiness.

Amazingly, Olson is a self-taught photographer who only first picked up a camera at the age of 38 in 2011. After posting his photos on his Facebook and receiving positive feedback, Olson decided to start shooting portraits professionally and was suddenly swamped with requests, which led to his thriving business today. According to the photographer, his “belief that everything in the world is beautiful as long as we take the time to look at it allows him to take normal, everyday subjects and transform them into enchanting images focused on breathtaking light and color.”
