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


more maternity madness! skates, classic car, harley, grass fields, pipes

Here's a quick sneak peek! I just love my gorgeous model/mom/mom-to-be/teacher! At 8am this morning she sent out a blast text to all her friends asking if anyone had any old-school roller skates. She found some cool green shorts and thought skates would complete the look for our classic cadillac shoot we were going to do at 9am. Lucky for Amy I had the exact skates we needed (and I even found them in the garage), but no way was I letting her actually skate in them. We did some seated shots and then I helped her over to the back of the car (not that she wanted my help).

fierce. can you tell someone has been watching studying America's Next Top Model?

This shot was inspired by another I've seen... thanks for jumping for me Amy!

back with more soon!
