McFarland House Cafe Mini Sessions…

I have never done mini sessions before and was a little hesitant when my wonderful PR/marketing lady Ms. Jennifer Braun suggested it. Needless to say, I had the BEST time with 10 wonderful families! To top it off, since this was also a charity promotion, this means that 10 sessions (by yours truly) have now been donated to the Male Involvement Project of the Dane County Parent Council. I can’t WAIT to meet these wonderful families as well 😉

Since I took a zillion images and I have only so much room, here is a mini sample. If you click on the little hearts to the left, that will direct you to my Facebook Business Page where you can see more!

A few more of baby ella and her awesome family. I have been dying to do an image of a daddy with a tattoo and his baby. This daddy has a rockin’ tattoo and loves his little baby girl to pieces 🙂 I have to give a HUGE shout out to my AWESOME dad’s who have bravely bared their chests for me to photograph them with their wee loves. There is honestly nothing that melts any mama’s heart more than seeing her man loving their baby. 🙂

And just for fun, I will let everyone in on my super top secret photo editing music collection…..

Today’s (LOUD) selections were:

Girlfriend in a Coma — Smiths
Shoplifters of the World — Smiths (I know, both these songs are kinda weird to edit baby images to, eh? LOL!)
Tupelo Honey — Van Morrison
Talkin’ about a Revolution — Tracy Chapman
Shimmer — Fuel
Strangelove — Depeche Mode
Shake the Disease — Depeche Mode (saw them live at the Forum in LA circa 1985 or ’86, I can’t remember!)
Where the Streets Have no Name — U2
Bad — U2 (Saw live in 1988….my bff Heather and I got Bono butt view….don’t know why they played in the round)
Gin and Juice — Snoop Dog (shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Don’t tell anyone…’s a mood piece……lol!)
Love My Way — Psychadelic Furs
Solsbury Hill — Peter Gabriel
You Should be Dancing — Bee Gee’s
Falls on Me — Fuel
Glycerine — Bush (Who I actually got to see live at Woodstock ’99)
Superman — REM
Living for the City — Stevie Wonder
Mountains O’ Things — Tracy Chapman
Superstition — Stevie Wonder

…and it’s official….my kids think I am either totally nuts or high…..

Who was photographed at the perfect time for mid-year baby photos. 6 months! When babies can sit up on their own (or minimally supported) but can’t crawl or walk away yet. I am just in love with his smoochy little happy doll face!!! And those eyes…..I just had to have at least one in color. To show off the gorgeous color of his beautiful eyes. YUMMY! 😉


I just love the connection in this photo!



I think dad was doing some kind of weird dance behind me for this one…. whatever it takes, right? LOL! 😉


peace and much love ♥ anya
