Austin Family Portrait Photographers || Happy Birthday, Presley!

Presley is SEVEN!! And total adorableness.  It has been such a pleasure and joy seeing this little wildflower grow. She’s a most kind-hearted, respectful, and adventurous  young lady and I’m so glad she’s great friends with my sweet little T-bear. Wishing this darling child a year full of all the sunshine and delight she gives. Austin Family Portrait Photographers

Presley inherited her parents’ love of Star Wars and, naturally, she was born on May 4th so she’l never be one of those girls who sort of tries to pretend her birthday doesn’t exist!! May the fourth be with you today, Miss Presley Lucille. Your birthday it is, celebrate you must.

Austin Mommy and Me Mini Session


Austin Newborn Photography || The Parents Set the Stage

From mama’s belly to baby’s first birthday, capture every moment of your little one’s first year with our “Belly to Birthday” Austin newborn photography program. Contact Ziem for details!


From baby’s first breath, it’s the parents who set the stage for their children’s approach to life. As it is with parenting, so it is with photography, where the energy parents bring to a shoot truly influences the mood of both the little ones and the photographer.

Ziem first worked with the Sterling family last year for their bluebonnets mini-session. Shortly after that shoot, the Sterlings let Ziem know they were expecting Baby #2 & booked his newborn session. Multiple weather delays later – #realaustinlife – the shoot finally happened just in time for bluebonnet season.

Austin Family Photography || The Nelsons


Mom Morgan found me on social media years ago. Since we live in the same area and share a few common friends, we would run into each other and leave with the intent of scheduling a time for family photos. I’m so glad the stars finally aligned and we got to shoot in the Spring when bluebonnets were in full bloom. Don’t they look ready for Easter?
