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


a belated happy halloween!

We had a great Halloween this year. Some friends invited us over to their place (our street has no street lights and no sidewalks... when we got home all our candy was still sitting on our front steps in the bowl just as we had left sad). Anyway, the neighborhood we went too was awesome for trick or treating...lots of decorations, tons of kids running, crying, being pushed in strollers, pushing strollers... and Jack and Kaylie were both totally into it. Kaylie tried to talk to everyone giving out the candy (like full on conversations about how she needed a red wig to be Ariel...). The kids seemed happy enough to eat their Halloween pretzels on the drive back home. Get this... Jack asked for some peanut m&m's but then spit it out when I gave him one! He said I could have them all. lol.

Last night while they were sleeping, The Great Pumpkin came and took away all their candy and left them presents instead (Kaylie was candy crazy yesterday). Only problem is now The Great Pumpkin is eating all the candy.
