Brooke's vision for her maternity session was lush gardens with beautiful flowers. Since she wasn't a local, I suggested the JMU Arboretum, and she was absolutely thrilled with its scenery. Brooke and Shawn were just naturals in front of the camera. Enjoy!

Oh, December in Virginia - we may end up with a snowstorm or it can also be a beautiful, warm 65 degree day, like it was for this session for the Shanks.
