greetings from sunny (and foggy) los angeles, ca

Hi, I'm heather. I like taking pictures. I take a lot of them. I stay up way too late. I wake up with my kids way too early (for me). Though slowly I'm learning that sleep is good.

I love photographing newborns, toddlers, kids (I've got two of my own), families, name it! Large groups and weddings make me way too nervous, but I'd be happy to refer you to other photographers in the area.

I love to hear your comments, so feel free to add to my blog by posting. Having a hard time remembering "umami?" Well, I wanted a name that would be easy to remember, spell and find, but apparently I did none of that, so if you'd like to get emails when I post, just add your email to the "subscribe here" box... you'll be the first to find out when I'll be offering mini sessions and other specials!

have a happy day... heather


underwood farms

Last weekend Matt and I took the kids out to Underwood Farms so they could experience the whole animal-plants-tractor thing. Well apparently the rest of LA decided to come too - that dirt parking lot was PACKED! We braved the sun and wind and came home with some hay in our pants (how the hay managed to get inside my cords I have no idea).

Notice the wind blowing through Kaylie's 3 inch long hair.

trying to find our way out of the corn maze...

I set the camera up and handed it over to Matt. I think he probably took the best pic of the day!

Might have to head back out to the farm during the week...

Hey Heather,
I just stumbled on your blog from ILP, small world! Your photography just keeps getting better and better. So inspiring! If you want to add a somewhat cranky spazzy but completely adorable little mama to your portfolio, I'd love for you to take some pics.
