I first met J in the school playground, a few days after the start of the new school year. She introduced herself and it turned out that we were both newbies to the school and to Perth. She and her beautiful family had recently traded America’s gorgeous state of Texas for Australia’s West Coast and I’m so glad they did. My heart melts every time young G calls me ‘Miss Rachael’ in his syrupy southern accent. Oh, and don’t get me started on the ‘Yes Ma’am’. It’s possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. They are such an awesome family and have thrown themselves into the Aussie lifestyle, so where better to do a photo shoot than down by the beach?
