Nathan + Katie
| Abraham Lincoln Memorial Garden Nature Center |
| Engagement + Family Session |
| Springfield, IL |
Meet Nathan, Katie, and Aedan… One of the sweetest little families you will ever meet!
Nathan popped the question after kayaking on Lake Springfield and then blindfolded Katie and drove her to a family surprise party! What a sweetheart. 💚💜
Katie and Nathan wanted to do their engagement session near the lake where Nathan proposed and where they enjoy spending time. We thought this was super sweet! It’s refreshing seeing others honor the special times in our lives. Too often we get caught up with life and forget to appreciate the special memories, like when God blesses us with the missing puzzle pieces. 🧩
And Aedan. Oh, what an adorable little man. 👀 Aedan kept us on our toes and had more energy than we knew what to do with!! But we’re glad he did, because we did a lot of walking during our photography session. There seemed to be many trails sprawling throughout Abraham Lincoln Memorial Garden Nature Center and along Lake Springfield. Aedan had no issue with it, but might have preferred spending his entire time swinging between Nathan and Katie!
Our walk through the park was rather eventful! We saw a ton of bugs. Ton of spiders 🕷… and spider webs 🕸. And I (Chris) got bit up by mosquitos 🦟 (per usual 🤷🏻♂️). But Aedan won the day by making friends with a couple fawns 🦌, who were NOT shy at all! It’s possible they would have eaten out of his hand had he had something tasty for them. 😂😂😂
In November, this little family will be uniting, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of their special day!
Thank you, Nathan, Katie, and Aedan for trusting us with your engagement and wedding photography! CONGRATULATIONS!
