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


so happy to be better

Well, I think we're all on the mend. Last week all four of us got the stomach flu. It was ugly. ugly. ugly. Last night I folded about 5 loads of laundry. Today Matt returned to work, I'm back on the computer, Kaylie's loud again and Jack's reading the ToysRUs catalog, so looks like life is returning to normal.

I've got a lot of catching up to do. But for now, here are a few landscape pics. "Hi" to Grandma Suzy and Grandpa Bill who are reading this from vacation in Hawaii. Wish we were with you.

A couple more pics from our fire storm week. Sun setting over the ocean.

Taken from the same location as the first, but with a wood texture applied over it... just experimenting.

After driving both kids to AZ all by myself, I just had to pull over when I saw how cool the moon look as it was rising in the desert. This was only a couple blocks away from our end destination--my brother's house. Departure time: 10:30am. Arrival time: 5:30pm. Number of stops: 4.

Taken out the car window as we drove to the zoo near my brother's house in Arizona. Don't worry, I wasn't driving. :)

Have a fun and healthy week everyone! More updates to come... my nephew Mason, Halloween and funny faces....

Amazing shots, Heather. I would hang any of those up in my home! Very impressive.

Guess I have no excuse for the blank white walls at our house then huh? :)
