We started out in the studio with the traditional oriental red outfit that was gifted to Mathilda by her mom’s boss. I loved the colour combination of the red on my new “vintage teal” background. Mathilda, however, could not be contained – so we headed outdoors! My backyard is bit like a magical forest, with all kids of perennials and different trees in a seemlingly random but beautiful collection. Everytime I go out there I see something I never noticed before. Mathilda loved exploring everything, running up and down the hill, and by the end of it I think we were all ready for a nap! But, dang, are the photos ever cute – this kid is seriously adorable.
