You haven't said what version of org you are using.  Assuming you are up
to date, i.e. version 8, you can export a subtree to PDF by

   M-x org-export-dispatch RET C-s l p

you can then send the PDF to yourself however you wish.

Alternatively, if you use Emacs to send your emails, i.e. with
message-mode, the following two commands will do the job nicely, sending
an HTML message (not my choice normally):

M-x org-mime-subtree RET
M-x org-mime-htmlize RET
C-c C-c
