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


let me woo you!

Thanks for the nudge Diana! I almost forgot about this!!!

My friend Staci of called me up not too long ago with a little proposition. Remember how I did that photoshoot for her new Little Woo line earlier in the year? Well, Staci called to see if I would shoot her women's clothing line! What?! Knowing that she usually does a studio set up (I've seen the images on her site a few times), I started to spaz since I don't know much about studio lighting. But she said she wanted to try something new... one location, outdoors with maybe a few fun editorial shots thrown in. Now that felt right up my alley. So thanks Staci for giving me another opportunity to hang out with you and some fun models on a beautiful sunny LA afternoon. And get this... the models didn't run away from me, they looked at the camera and stood where they were told. Where's the challenge in that? lol

Ah, here's the challenge... between models, I got to chase little miss piper around while she ran around in (I mean modeled) a few of the new little woo outfits.

per child labor laws, you have to let the kids wear goggles between outfits.
