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 beachside reunion || manhattan beach family photographer

Two years ago I met Kristin online at (an online forum for photographers trying to learn more about family portrait photography). She was coming out from Minnesota and was looking for someone to take photos of her family on the beach during their trip to Los Angeles. This was my first stranger photo session as a photographer!

Well, Kristin and I have stayed in contact though facebook and late night instant messaging (she stays up even later than me). Since our session in Malibu, she and her husband Eric have welcomed a son into their family. Yay! They wanted to do pictures on the beach again, but get this... little Brody does not like sand. Hmmm. Well, you'll see what we got... lol.

Great to see you all again! Have a great ride back home Supermom! And if you're looking for more fun stops along the way check out Road Trip USA...awesome road trip book. And I can't wait to see some before/after shots of your kitchen too!

introducing: the boy who does not like sand.
It's okay Brody, my camera doesn't like sand either.
