Thank you for visiting this page to find out more about our business! Beachfront Baby was founded in 2011 by a mom of four children who needed a way to hold her youngest baby in the water and still have her hands free to tend to and play with her older children in the pool during the hot summer days in Texas. Each employee and independent contractor we work with are parents who believe that babywearing is an important part of parenting. Our business model allows us to give our employees the freedom to work hours that work for their families. When you purchase a Beachfront Baby Carrier, you’ll know that much love & attention to detail has gone into its creation and that you are supporting a small business and families, just like yours.

Meet Team Beachfront Baby!


Diane Turner is our Founder & President. Diane is a mother to four amazing kids, 2 girls and 2 boys, and wife to an amazing firefighter. The Turner clan lives in the country of South Texas on nearly 6 acres. They raise miniature donkeys, chickens & bees along with cats & a dog. In her spare time, Diane enjoys sitting down with a good book & a hot cup of tea, hiking with her family, and trying out new vegetarian recipes in an attempt to get her family to eat healthier. 

Diane has a hand in nearly every part of Beachfront Baby operations- processing orders, sharing in social media duties, ordering supplies, and all the behind-the-scenes boring things business owners need to do to stay current and operate legally. She can be reached at Diane{@}




Tara Dirks is our Vice President of Customer Relations. Tara lives in the country with her fire fighter husband and their 5 children. They raise chickens, quail, bunnies, & a calf along with their dogs on land that has been in her husband’s family for decades.

She also enjoys going for walks with her husband in their dry creek bed near their house and tending their garden together.
