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

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful...
(Thanks Stevie!)

Well, she's smart too! And a character!

Yes, this little girl has got a unique look - she's a Heinz 57, kind of like my kids. Only unlike my kids, she actually listened to me and posed for some photos. We hung around my yard one morning, made a few outfit changes and the rest is history! Don't you just love that red hat?
And that blue backdrop? Well, that would be our plastic swimming pool from the summer that was still propped up against the bbq.

Beautiful! What does Heinz 57 mean other than Catsup?

Heinz 57 is a slang for having a mix of different nationalities or ethnic backgrounds. :)
