From the moment I walked in the door and got a warm welcome from the family dog Jackson, I knew that he’d make a great model especially juxtaposed with tiny Stella. Stella felt like a feather in my arms compared to my now 9 month old son. It wasn’t so long ago, but it’s already hard to believe he was ever that little. Having grown up without pets, I was amazed by Stella’s insouciance when Jackson gave her a “bath.” When the initial excitement of my arrival wore off, he chilled out on the couch and remained completely unfazed as I took these shots. It was so sweet to see them together.

I don’t think Rachel was expecting to be in any of the photos, but I’m glad she joined in because this is just one of the many lovely mother-daughter shots that made the final cut.
