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


drumroll please.....

I think the site may be ready! I just have to submit it and have the website guru's launch it. Wahoo! Fingers crossed.

Okay, once the website launches, the first person to comment here will recieve a free 8x10 of any image I've taken of you or your kids. Or you can have one free 8x10 from your next session.

The website might be up later tonight, or it may take a couple or days...

thanks for hanging in there with me!
