Seaside Beach Photographers | Tankersley Family

As we approach the end of summer, we’re trading in our bear feet for bare feet. From Alaska, to Canada, to Florida, our three-week escape is drawing to a close with family and extended relatives in Florida. We’re meeting new babies, visiting great-grandmothers, catching up with old high school friends, lounging around in our pajamas and playing board games with cousins well past bedtime. I wish we could bottle up these precious moments forever. Seaside Beach Photographers

Speaking of family, I had the great pleasure of meeting the Tankersley family. They are the sweetest and they also enjoy and appreciate family quality time as much as we do. Their destination family session was everything it should be – all love and all smiles start to end! Despite the strong winds, threat of rain, a toddler falling asleep on the walk over to the beach, and a sunset session dangerously close to an infant’s bedtime, everyone rallied for the occasion. I must have used every trick in my photographer’s hat including my sub-par drawing (and secret un-talent) skills. I left the session feeling so grateful for the opportunity to meet this lovely family and for the privilege to be a part of their tradition.

Hope you enjoy every ounce of this pretty and be sure to check back for more. Because we’re on beach time, I’ll have to postpone my Fall mini session announcement until next week. Stay tuned and send a note to be added to the list.

Tutu Cute

I am coming off of a week and a half in Alaska and almost a week in Vancouver. You can say I’m experiencing record-breaking summer weather. So much, that I’m already thinking about my Fall sessions, including what to wear (Tutu Du Monde, anyone?), Fall fashion, and my upcoming mini session announcement. This session couldn’t have come at a better time; it’s pretty, chic and leaves you wanting every single piece from the latest Tutu Du Monde line.

Cake Smash Cuteness in Austin

Not all cake smash sessions are created equal. Mia’s, I would say, was down right fabulous and the payoff was major. From her amazing outfits, to the darling cake, gorgeous props, and the perfect photography setting, Mia nailed it. Any child photography session that includes a lake and a destroyed cake is fine in my book. These modern birthday portraits are about as cute as it gets.

Milk Bath Photos Austin | Ziem Photography | Lifestyle Newborn Baby

Take a cue from this gorgeous duo who found a dreamy (while lacking sleep) way of soaking in new baby bliss and beating the heat in Austin, TX. I’ve shared many intimate moments with my families over the years, but these milk bath photos are the very definition of delight. It gives off a spa-like, luxe feel with a few pretty details. I love the feminine lace dress, simple hair, the colorful flowers, and that satiny tub which I swear was made for milk-bathing.

Family Photography Austin | Chicago Love and Mermaid Tails

I got to work with this family last year when Philip and Desiree announced her pregnancy with Baby #5. It was a privilege to be a part of a very special time in their new life in Austin. You can check out that story here: Family Photography Austin.

When the Lynches’ last child and 4th daughter (!!!) was born, she was nicknamed “Fin” for Finale. I’ll never forget the girls’ incredible reactions to the news. You can bet those trumpets were blaring for “Encore” when he arrived in April. He is now Ellis Bond, 3 months, and just as cute as a Chicago Cub.
