Wild & Free Family Photos at Oregon Ridge Park

Oregon Ridge Park Nature Center is one of my favorite locations for family photo sessions because it has SO much variety- there's the nature center itself, full of fish, birds, snakes, bugs, giant taxidermied animals, and outside is full of fun adventures. There's a playground with cool log structures and a music garden, the chicken coop, the forest itself, winding trails, water, and dilapidated stone buildings. It's a hidden gem! I met the Bruno family there in October and it was a warm, Maryland fall evening and everyone was in high spirits. The kids ran through the trails until we reached the creek, where they splashed around and climbed over the log bridge until the sun went down.
