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


i got a haircut! ...well, not really that dramatic, just very over due

If you've read the about me page on my website, or if you've seen me in person any time in the past 8 months, you know that I pretty much have been in dire need of a haircut. 99% of the time it's pulled back in a bun/pony because it just won't do anything else.

So one of my friends always has cute hair (short, long, different colors, it's always cute)... guess it helps that she's super cute too. Anyway, I decided to try our her hair stylist this weekend. Kate at Aya Salon in Santa Monica. She just listened to me ramble about how I've been jumping around to different hair people for the past 10 years...blah blah blah... and what do you know... I left with some good hair. Yay! I'll be going back in 3-4 months for either a big whack (try something different) or just a trim...we'll see.

So here's the hair.

not bad... now let's see what I looks like after I wash it.
