Mache and Mickey Solares
Bellani Art Photography
We are Mickey and Mache, husband and wife, and we love getting to know the people we photograph because their beauty comes from inside their hearts, and as we get to know them we can capture who they are. We love what we do! We get to meet wonderful people who share their life’s special moments with us. Mom, dad, and little M welcomed us in one bright Saturday morning and put on full display the miracle of adoption.
It wasn’t long before we would experience the warmth that radiated from mom and dad’s love and affection, and as we toured the home and chatted about family life we were touched by every detail that went into the decorating their home and nursery. Family heirlooms and thoughtful gifts from loving friends brought meaning to rooms and walls.
We had the privilege to hold little M’s great grandmother’s baby booties! And by their side was dad’s baby booties, too. Dad’s dresser, now in M’s room, painted by grandma, still had a roller skate wheel put-in to replace a broken knob from back when he was a young boy. The blankets: you guessed it, knit by grandma. The pictures on the wall and on M’s dresser, gifts from friends, friends who knew how long mom and dad had waited for their miracle, and much, much more.
So as you look through these pictures, we hope you enjoy and we hope you are inspired by every detail.
