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 little jack is growing up

He still has a super high voice that cracks me up, but man is he growing up. What?!

A conversation between our neighbor and jack this afternoon:

neighbor - Remind me what your name is again...

jack - j - a - c - k.... jack. I'm jack. C - A - T spells cat.

neighbor - Wow, can you spell dog?

jack - Dog, dog, da, d - o - g spells dog.

neighbor - Where did you learn to spell?

jack - Well, my Hooked on Phonics and stuff like that.

I guess he could say, "Hooked on Phonics worked for me."

Before bed now, sometimes he'll read us a story. :) What a nice switch.

And he's starting to figure out how to write (I wrote the "jack" on the left, he wrote the one on the right). Not too shabby.

He he! Guess that big head does have a lot of brains. :)

SHUT UP!! No risk of that happening here - we'd still rather play ball and go to the park. Oh, or watch TV. Yikes, when did that happen?! Better pull out that Phonics workbook!!
