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


kate's baptism

Today I had the honor of photographing the baptism of one our our little playgroup buddies. Kate is part of the second round of babies in one of my girlfriend circles. Oh, those second kids sure have a mind of their own! Kate was an angel during the long as she was down and going where she wanted to go. ;) I caught her trying a few of those escape moves toddlers all magically learn, but she really was pretty good and she looked so pretty in her delicate white gown that had been passed down for generations (on her daddy's side).

Let me tell you how I was a bit worried about taking pictures in this church. When I went to scope out the location earlier this week, the lights were all off (and that's the way I thought it always was...lucky for me they paid the power bill). So without futher ado, here are a couple of pics from inside this beautiful church.

Aw, she's really cute! Still having troubles posting comments. It says my password is wrong, so I had to go back and open the account again. If I reply to the email of postings, will it come out as a comment so I don't have to come here?

Hi Mom!
If you reply to the subscription email, it's just like replying to an email from me. Hm.. wonder why blogger is being so tricky?
