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


he wooed me! || santa monica newborn photographer

Here's little duke at 5 weeks. I wasn't sure what to expect with a little 5 week old since the newborns I've been photographing have all been less than 14 days old. Well Duke did not disappoint! He peed on us once and even fell asleep for a few photos. He also stayed awake a long time and gave us lots of alert blue steel faces (and I think maybe even one smile).

Duke's mama is friend and fashion designer staci woo. I'm sure you've all seen me sporting her "carefree stylish living" clothes (if it's not than jeans and a tshirt, most likely it's something she's designed)!

I couldn't be happier to welcome little Duke to the world. Congratulations staci and mike!

wooing his mama

For this shot, we put him on the kitchen counter and had someone hold up a white blanket to block out the rest(including the kitchen sink). Oh and I guess when you've got great style, that also means you've got great little vase combos casually sitting on your counter. ;) And a side note... aren't these borders around the photos cute? Check out my post on albums...then envision and album with page after page with these little borders around your little simple, yet so darling!


staci...thinking he's looking like you here! gas or smile? SMILE!

Lovely work, Heather. Just beautiful!
Hard to pick a fave, but I really love the vase and green pillow pix. Nice job!
