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


family of 3 or make that 4 || malibu family and maternity photography

Yesterday it was dreary and overcast out - looks like June Gloom has arrived early in Pacific Palisades. But for family photos scheduled at noon, I was actually happy to see the cloud cover as bright full noon sun doesn't always make for the most flattering images (unless you like to have dark raccoon eyes). The overcast skies help keep the images soft which is a perfect look for maternity.

We started off at Danielle and John's house... tested out the dining room table... I just couldn't resist the hard wood table and delicate chandelier.

then one in the yard... Danielle insists she's only having grapefruit cravings but I'm not so sure...

on the way to their house I found this cool green wall.
mason leading the way.

then we headed down to the beach.
how gorgeous is she?

my new shot for little kids when they're too busy to stop and take pictures. A slow shutter speed shows Mason's fast movement (and his tongue sticking out)...

more to come!
