Elm Creek Park and The Bottineau House - Maple Grove, Plymouth Family Photography

This park is a favorite of mine for biking in the summer and snow tubing in the winter.  It’s also a beautiful spot for photos, especially in the summer and fall.  Along with trees, a huge lawn, long grassy areas, and plenty of trails, there is also an old historic house.  I love the wooden steps and the white doors that are an easy way to add a little variety to the backdrops in a session.
