Our Philosophy

Marla’s love for photography prospered after returning home from Iraq in 2005. The camera was her shield she used to help transfer from a life in a war zone to life back at the home front. Throughout that transformation, Marla’s love for truly seeing people and life around her grew as her understanding of photography developed. With lens in hand, Marla hopes to share the beauty she sees around her. Never to take life for granted, she hopes to capture its essence one moment at a time.


“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
— Marc Riboud

“We are often taught to look for the beauty in all things, so in finding it, the layman asks the philosopher while the philosopher asks the photographer.”
