As we have explored Springfield, my family and I have loved playing in the woods at Lincoln Memorial Garden and Nature Center. Between the fairyland scenery of tree-covered trails, the wildflower fields, the views of the lake, and the little beach just calling for small toes to wiggle in its sand, it’s been an experience of wonder and beauty. So, I was excited to set one of my first Springfield family sessions in these very gardens and woods. Even though their drive to the session was apparently spent trying to scrub magic marker off tiny faces, they arrived ready to explore and play. And you know what? We did exactly that! Following are my favorites from our time together: enjoy!
