My photographer friends will probably recognize this beautiful lady as Rashmi Pappu a very talented photographer whose work I have always admired. I have wanted to do a family photo shoot for as long as I can remember (since Stella was a baby) but I always had excuses as to why I couldn’t get it done or why I should wait. After reading this post on Deb Schwedhelm’s blog about “the perfect time” I knew I had to stop making excuses and just do it, so of course I contacted Rashmi. I love her clean style, her use of light, and the natural moments she captures. To my surprise she suggested we trade mini-sessions and we arranged for a very quick session the next day. Yikes! Photographing another photographers family AND a mini-session? I didn’t know if I could pull either off, but I really wanted Rashmi to do our photos so I nervously agreed. I’m not sure most non-photographers know how nervous some photographers get before their sessions. It’s like doing that speech in front of your high school class nervous. And then to photograph another photographer’s family? That’s like doing the speech naked in front of you high school class. Rashmi and her family could not have been any cuter though. They were so much fun to photograph. Being a photographer she knows what do to get those great photos… love on your family, cuddle, tickle, laugh, wrestle, and maybe every once in a while take a look at the camera. And, the girls were, of course, adorable. I just love their pointy toes in the family photo and their infectious smiles. And the cherry on top? I have some amazing family photos of my own now that our family will always cherish. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Oh Jody! I will say it again, we LOVE these photos. I love that I am actually in a photo for a change… like you, i had made one too many excuses for not being in a photograph.. but really, there is no time like the present. Thank you so much. You are so full of talent. I can’t wait to see you soar.. and I can say ‘i knew her first!’. :) xoxo
