Of the many (many!) things yours truly underestimated about becoming a parent was the importance of the “village”. I, knowing everything there was to know about parenting (despite never having had an actual child myself), would effortlessly raise my two perfectly behaved, organically fed, Ralph Lauren-ad style children with the help of my spouse and perhaps the very occasional babysitter.
The parents here know how this story ends . . . one colicky newborn later, I quickly realized just how important having a supportive network of helpers is. Out went the Perfect Pinterest Parent fantasies, and in came my wonderful friends and family of supporters (and caffeine). So when our photographer-in-chief Ziem announced her Mommy & Me sessions, I booked my shoot not just with the usual solo mother-child image in mind but with my village too.
I have to be candid for a moment and admit something huge : as an austin lifestyle photographer, I’ve never actually seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
If you’ve been following my work for some time, you’d know that, yes, this is my third
session inspired by this classic film. How is this possible? There is something about televisions – as soon as I get comfortable and watch a movie or show, I fall asleep.
Our modern-day Austin adaptation, however, has me bright-eyed this morning. Little Stella was magic come to life in an outfit planned to perfection by her sweet Aunt Ally. I can’t think of anything more aesthetically significant than a black dress, satin gloves and tiara. Shooting in our downtown condo against the exposed brick helped create a timeless and chic feel.
Nature’s beauty does a soul good and, yep, happiest birthday girls do too.

Families are the heartbeat of my business so when I get the chance to go beyond chasing butterflies and children, I jump on the opportunity! Picture a glamorous mommy-daughter duo, kick it up a few thousand notches, and you get Elizabeth and Isabella. The ladies brought their finest and fancy and they made my heart do a few leaps.
