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


hapa baby...she's a beauty, eh? || santa monica newborn photographer

Sorey aboot the "beauty eh" comment.

translation: Sorry about the "beauty eh" comment. ;)

he he... it's after midnight, so maybe I'm not so funny as I think I am right now, so please forgive me. The papa of this beautiful little hapa girl is Canadian, so I have to get in all my Canadian lingo while I have the chance (all learned from watching Degrassi Junior High back when I was a kid growing up without MTV in a home with 6 televisions but no cable, destined to watch pbs all summer). Someone take the keyboard away from me, I don't think I'm even writing proper sentences...

Take 2:
Remember that maternity photo shoot I did a couple weeks ago in my neighbor's bamboo? Well, someone wanted in on the photo action and decided to come a couple weeks early...

When I saw this baby girl all swaddled up -- a tiny bundle peacefully sleeping on her parent's big bed -- I just wanted to put her in my camera bag and sneak her home with me. She has the most perfect little round face and was just sooo good during our photo session. I can't wait to watch her grow up and see what characteristics she inherits from her mom and dad. Congratulations Ann and Jeremy... you've got one beautiful family. I just realized we didn't get any photos with your redheaded child (the dog), so I'm sure you'll be seeing me with my camera again soon!
