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


third time's a charm

One of the best things about jack being in preschool has been all the new mom friends I've met this year. Okay, I won't lie, I do like having a 3 hour break while my little guy is at school painting, running (though he says it hurts his leggies), building, singing... but all the kids in his class are great kids and I've really enjoyed spending time with the parents as well. Did that sentence make sense? hmm... I think I need to start getting more sleep. ;)

Wow, I can't believe this year has gone so fast, we only have a couple more weeks left of school. Before I start freaking about about summer (I haven't signed the kids up for any programs other than 4 swim lessons), let me move on to the point of this post. A new baby!!!

One of my mom friends from jack's class just had a baby boy, yep, her 3rd baby under 5. Yep, she's got her hands full, but she's doing an amazing job. Already I've run into her at the firestation open house, at school and last week she had the 3 boys on her own at the park . Here's the little guy, weighing in at 9lbs, 30z on his bithday less than 2 weeks ago!

I was messing around with different black and white conversions... so that's why some are brownish and others are more traditional looking. You can't believe how many ways there are to make a black and white picture (and none of them involve pressing a magic b/w button). How I wish!
