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


my 2nd and 3rd maternity shoot (at the same time!)

How am I so lucky? I was planning to do some belly photos of a friend of a friend on Saturday. Well, on Friday I talked with Amy (the mom-to-be), and she asked if her pregnant friend Lucy could join us. Well, of course! We spent three hours together chatting (I love listening to British accents), photographing and doing wardrobe changes. There were definitely some funny moments, but I'll leave those for their outtake photos. ;)

Here are a few shots Amy and Lucy... I'll have the rest for you soon!

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancies and call me if you ever want to get together with the kids!
