Yoga Photography: Jacqui

I was so happy when Jacqui said she wanted to do our yoga shoot at the Arnold Arboretum, one of my favorite places since childhood AND just an overall fantastic place to for photos. Jacqui is a yoga and Pilates instructor and she was very interested in a shoot that had a nature element to it. The arbs was the perfect place and we agreed that shooting in the evening was the perfect time: 
Thanks again Jacqui!
