A bit about Matilda Jane Clothing & pictures from previous events:
Matilda Jane Clothing’s designs are youthful. Playful. And expressive. Our whimsical approach to texture, pattern and color results in designs that capture the spirit and imagination of childhood. Remember when your grandpa let you pick your own flavor of ice cream for the first time? That’s what being a Matilda Jane girl is all about. Lucky for you, gals of all ages and sizes can join the fun! Matilda Jane Clothing is available in girls, tweens and adults. Flavors for all!
About Trades of Hope and a sneak peek of their gorgeous items:

So many women live in poverty, not because they lack abilities, but because they lack opportunity. We started Trades of Hope to give women that opportunity for a better life. Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope’s help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of hope!

We work with the artisans themselves and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. Some women have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have HIV/AIDS and leprosy. These women have never had the chances we’ve had, yet they are just like us in so many ways. They love their families and hope and dream of a better life for them.

We are helping by marketing their products through the home party model, so they can put food on their table, a roof over their head, get medical care and an education for their children. We want to tell their stories to the world! We have a heart for ministry and business, and through this we have started separate successful non-profit organizations and businesses.


Congratulations to our two winners for the giveaway Monica Johnson (@monicaannejohnson) and Brit Lanier (@brit_lanier) I can’t wait to photograph you beautiful ladies! Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter, be sure to check out my previous blog post about our annual Halloween mini sessions for autism!

Our most exciting event of the year is right around the corner! Our sixth annual Halloween Minis for Autism fundraiser will be October 15th and 22nd! Jacquilyn can also accommodate dates during the week if weekends are unavailable for some families.

This year were creating a super fun 3D background for all of the little princess and superheroes alike. Each session includes two high-resolution digital images of your child in their costume (plus one sibling/group shot, if applicable). After your child finishes their pictures, make sure to stick around for free refreshments, trick-or-treating, a bake sale, and more fun!

A $25 minimum donation will be collected for each child photographed and Jacquilyn will donate all of the money collected to The Autism Academy! Cash or check will be accepted the day of the event. Clients are also welcome to send payment through Paypal to jacquilyn@jacquilynavery.com

Any additional donations are also welcome and for each additional $20 donation you make, you will get a raffle ticket to be entered to win a prize pack including a free mini session and other goodies! If you cant make it, or just prefer to donate online you can do so here on our donation page!

Sessions will take place both Saturdays beginning at 10 am, to book contact Jacquilyn at info@jacquilyn avery.com.
