My Bliss.

Welcome to my blog. Finding balance between  photography, family and everything in between. 

I "Heart" Matilda Jane! (Giveaway)

I LOVE Matilda Jane clothes. Two years ago I had an event at the studio where I photographed kids in a field wearing Matilda Clothing and I have been hooked ever since.  Its fun, whimsical and GREAT for photos!  Of course outfits are all about the photos for me BUT I love having little Lily dressed all stylish too!  The newest outfit came in the mail and Lily was so excited to get a present. As soon as we had the package open she was stripping her clothes so she could try on her new outfit. She LOVES clothes (despite the many tutu and nothing else on shots I post LOL…I promise she really does love clothes. As I know from owning my own boutique business packaging is a much about the product and branding as the actual product. You want to maintain your brand from start to finish.  So with that being said…I think its just as exciting when you get your clothes in the mail! Here is how they arrived...

Wrapped in tissue paper and then each piece wrapped in its own little bag. It was like Christmas for both me and Lily!  The outfit we got was from the new line "Paint by Numbers" as you see in the photo.  Holy cuteness!  Adorable, whimsical and colorful!  Here is a shot of Lily as soon as we opened everything up...

Little poser!  Lily is wearing the following three pieces:

Turtle Dove Knot Top Stippling Tee Gallery Leggings

All sized 4T.  I normally dress her in a 3T but the 4T seems to work great for her.  The leggings are a bit big around the waist since she is a little skinny but her long legs for sure needed the 4T.  Adorable right?  I really like the rich purple tones on Lily as well.  We received this outfit in December but I really wanted to get a few studio shots of Lily wearing it. Im pretty sure every Matilda Jane outfit we own she has had some pro pics taken wearing them :)  We are a little behind but I wanted to get through the holiday craziness before we ventured out to the studio.  And finally we did it.  Lily was excited to put her new outfit on for photos and go to mommy's work. Yup you read that right…she was actually excited.  Taking photos at home is not nearly as cool. She knows going to mommy's work means photos and treats.  For the first time in awhile she actually cooperated quite well. I might have pulled out a little smarties treat to help get the smiles going…but hey anything for a good photo right? She was seriously adorable and I got more than enough photos of her in her cute outfit.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Here is the direct link to the "Paint By Numbers" line that includes the outfit Lily is wearing.


They are great quality, cozy and colorful. I am a huge fan!  They also now carry a line of women's clothes as well. I know a couple of my clients have them but I need to wait until I get rid of this prego belly first before I get anything :)  I will also see what I can do about hosting another event at the studio this year and having a trunk show! It was a blast a couple years ago.
