Milwaukee Children’s Commercial Photography | Matilda Jane Clothing Company | Girls Being Girls

When Matilda Jane Clothing contacted me for an encore review of their Paint By Numbers collection I just was thrilled!
They are my favorite-favorite for little girls clothes… their products are whimsical, colorful and funky, and my daughter LOVES wearing them.

This time around I teamed up with my good friend Robyn Vining of  Ticklebugs Photography to photograph our girls together.
To get some different looks, Robyn shot with studio lighting while I shot available light (in studio).  Then we even took the girls out
in the snow!  And though our Wisconsin winter temps left us somewhat limited, the girls had  a blast twirling in the snow in their gorgeous new duds.

What we got was, well… Girls being girls.  But that is actually a keen representation of both our girls and the collection.

~beautiful, playful, a little bit silly, and absolutely perfect~

What little girl doesn’t love a cute, feminine, ruffly little outfit?
Mine certainly does.

So when I was contacted by Matilda Jane Clothing Company recently to photograph and review an ensemble from the new release of their 
Paint By Numbers collection, I jumped for joy.  The collection as a whole is colorful, sophisticated and full of whimsy.
The line features modern colors and trendy styles, super sweet and perfect details, and a funky and fun functionality.
(there’s even a ton to choose from for the grown up little girl in Mom).

My daughter found the super soft and stretchy fabrics so very comfortable… and it’s rare to not hear a complaint when she’s trying on new clothes.

She’s a girly-girl who likes to roll in the dirt, and this outfit let her play like usual, and be adorable too.
This outfit suits her personality so perfectly, I think she’d wear it everyday if I let her.

My Adeline is wearing:

Turtledove Knot Top
Sky View Puffer Tee
Gleam Leggings (my favorite)

Milwaukee Baby Photographer | Olive at Lake Park ~ 6 months

Life is an unpredictable mystery.
People come and people go, some return… and bring with them  sweet, adorable baby girls.

I was thrilled to photograph and catch up with my old friend Dan and his wife Stacey while they visited Milwaukee recently.
And look who they brought with them… sweet, adorable baby Olive!

I really want to keep her (she’s so cute!), but I think her parents might miss her.

It’s so wonderful to see so much happiness between them.
Nice work guys, she’s absolutely precious.

Milwaukee Children’s Photographer | Lucy ~ 2 years

A back yard tea party, a strawberry picnic, and rainbows at the park…
I don’t think it gets any sweeter than this.

I wonder if this is what every day is like with Lucy.

Milwaukee Wisconsin Baby Photographer | Pippa {7 months}

I watched her come into this world, and now I get to watch her grow into this beautiful, smiling little sweet girl.

I know how much joy Pippa brings to her parents each day, and I adored the time I spent with her for our session last week.
She was “throwing a fit” when I arrived, but gave me nothing but smiles through my entire visit.

I might snatch her up and keep her for my own!

Milwaukee Children’s Lifestyle Photographer | Photogs and Trainiacs at the Mitchell Park Domes


Milwaukee has pretty great county parks system, with tons to experience in terms of education, numerous wedding and event venues
that are beautiful and affordable, and plenty of fun to be had by the little ones.
One of the best stops though, is the Mitchell Park Domes.  I vividly remember my Dad taking me there as little girl, and it’s just as awesome for my kids now.

When my colleague and friend Maggie (of Something Blue Images) told me of a special train exhibit taking place there, we packed up our little trainiacs 
(we both have 3 year old boys who LOVE trains),  and escaped the Wisconsin winter day in the warm weather climates of the Domes.

The exhibit was amazing, with realistic model trains weaving through a huge circus themed track.  And the controllers were so kind to the boys… 
letting them watch as they fixed different engines and engaging them in friendly conversation.  And they even let the boys each hold a Thomas
car that had broken down (which is a big deal).

We had such a great time, we might go back next week!

Ezra’s always excited and surprised.

Declan’s adorable face.

We managed to visit and explore the other 2 domes for a few minutes, before we headed right back to the trains.

his “i love trains” dance.

And Maggie was nice enough to snap a few pics of me and my Ezra..
