I’m Rashmi Pappu and I am a portrait and family photographer based in Alexandria, Virginia.

For years I have focused my lens on expecting mothers, sleepy newborns, cranky babies, rambunctious children, reticent teens and reluctant spouses to turn everyday moments into lifetime memories. I design my portrait sessions to be low-key and efficient. You will laugh, your smiles will be easy – and you’ll see me capture in precious photos the nuances and the love that define your family story.

“Rashmi has been photographing our family for over six years now and her photos are some of my most prized possessions. She has an amazing ability to capture the personality and character of all of us and always makes the sessions fun and efficient so everyone has a great time. We laugh, we have real smiles on our face, and she always picks a fabulous back drop.”

“Particularly in this digital age when so many of our photos never make it off our phones, I absolutely cherish her prints and photos. She has an incredible gift and I have never been disappointed with the photos. Family photos with Rashmi have become a tradition in our family and I am forever grateful we have her to capture our growing family.”
