Family photos at the Mesa Arts Center

One of the best aspects of doing this Zeffler Photo thing for seven years was being able to see kids grow year after year – that’s why I started photographing my own kids.

This family has come back the last four years with this sweet little boy who’s a fun kind of crazy.

Zeffler Photo Ballet
This photo came from a larger family photo session. The lovebirds had a chance for some photos together and the touch of ballet made it that much sweeter. I always look back at older photos and cringe at some of my editing choices and tendency to push it. But it felt right at the time.

This season is our last doing family photo sessions

IMG_5243Hello fans and friends!

Lady Zeffler here with some news: We have decided to make this fall our last doing family photo sessions.

That’s right: We’re retiring.

It’s been wonderful meeting and working with so many of you terrific people. The support and encouragement we’ve always received has been genuinely life changing. You are all amazing. But it’s time to move on.

We’ll be deleting the Facebook page, but the website will still be active and you can also find Zane over on Instagram.

If you won a photo shoot with us through a charity auction, have a credit with us or we’ve traded services with you – we will definitely still honor these commitments, just email me when you’re ready (any time through 2016).

If you’re interested in a shoot with us this fall you can also email me at We have nine spots left.

Again, thank you for making the last few years of this nonsense a genuine delight.


A violinist and a ballerina

After a long weekend cooped up in the house, I felt like a drive to hunt some potential photo shoot locations.

I admit to being less than inspired by brown and light tan houses and municipal parks.

We didn’t have much luck uncovering a magic new location, but we had some fun, burned some gas and learned when my daughter is hungry nothing annoys her more than classic rock radio.

“My tummy is sad,” she said. That’s the cue to head home.
