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?

Austin Bluebonnet Mini Session Weekend Recap – Bluebonnets + Sunshine + Two Baby Chicks

– Austin Bluebonnet Mini Session Video –

Special thanks to all of my clients and a rockin’ assistant for making 17 Austin bluebonnet mini sessions in one weekend possible. A majority of these were repeat clients so it was one big love fest which included hills of bluebonnets, challenging winds at one point, and ended up two adorable chicks.  I have so much love for these families and especially their children.

I’m excited to share more details about an two upcoming events in planning stages for my clients, past, present and future. The first is a client appreciation celebration and mommy-and-me mini’s. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it!
