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


the most delightful little buddha boy

Today I finally got to meet my pen pal's crew of boys. Well, Mina isn't exactly my pen pal, but it sure seems like it since we've been exchanging friendly emails a lot in the last few weeks. So it was so great finally meeting her, her husband and their 3 very handsome hapa (half Japanese - just like me) boys. Today was all about the youngest son, Derek. He's such a happy, smiley, chubby guy - all while he had his front teething coming through.

I know Mina's subscribed to this blog, so she'll get an email with this post first thing in the morning. Hope you love them!

See you in November at the mini session!

Yep, they just redid their house and it's gorgeous! Right along the entry way there are those rocks along the wall. She said the kids have never played with the rocks (there are plenty more outside apparently)... but I know if we had those at our house, that we would be finding them all over the place. ;)
(ps. so jealous over your anniversary present!!!! woohoo!!!!)
