Meet the lovely and kind hearted Heather Schumacher! We met and instantly felt like kindred spirits, like we were little children meeting up for a play date. We wandered along the streets of Mar Vista, stopping to take jump photos along the way. We were in awe and wonder of the beautiful spring gardens and the powerful presence of the trees arching over the streets. We ended our fun little jump for joy photo adventure with this beautiful image of Heather, radiating joy in the warmth of the sunshine.
