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


happy bday grandma!

Now here's a girl who's thinking. What do moms and grandmas love most? Right! How did you know? You're so smart! Moms and grandmas LOVE professional photos of their kids and grandkids! ;) Lauren emailed me a few weeks ago knowing all her siblings would be in town for Thanksgiving. So we booked a session during sunset and low tide and thankfully we didn't get fogged out (I haven't seen blue sky at my house for the past 2 days). Then Lauren remembered she was supposed to be going to the USC football game with her mom. Doh! She had to make up a quick story about some cough- baby shower - cough - sorry mom can't make it. So no football game (subliminal message: go bruins!! ) but grandma/mom will be getting some nice photos for her upcoming birthday!

I think this is my first official shoot with this many adults and I have to say, adults can be better listeners... but these kids were great and totally surprised me with their attention spans. Of course we had some sand throwing and some silly faces, but we also got some great cuteness!

drumroll please.....think grandma/mom will like this one? :)
