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


two little blondies

Check out these two little blondies...and can you believe those curls? The mom of these girls and I have been talking about doing a photoshoot for months and today we finally made it happen. We even got Sadie (the first baby) in a couple shots. :)

and my favorite of the ones I've edited so far... baby Shiloh look out... there's a cuter kid in town.

Thanks Jen and cheyenne! My blog must have been on the blogger homepage for a few minutes or something since I got a bunch of hits this afternoon (and a new visitor...Jen). Thanks!

Color... ah yes, nothing a little lightroom and photoshop magic. :) Oh and little miss lila kept trying to eat rocks, so we had a some dirt to clean up around her mouth too. Ha! ;)
