Hi! I'm Marlaina, the lady behind the camera! As long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with taking photos. I was the kid that always had one of those disposable cameras on hand, and then replaced those with digital cameras. In 2011 I talked myself into buying a BIG GIRL Camera, and never looked back! Almost a decade later ( Wow, I'm, like, old now...) I'm still in love with capturing your happiest moments and everything in between.

Let's get personal...

I'm a luckiest mama ever, of a two year old girl. She keeps me on my toes, from sleeping in, and my camera out of it's bag! Besides the kiddo, I love road trips, iced lattes, and buying more plants than I have room for in my home! Seriously, ask my husband!

When I'm not capturing other's memories you can find me making my own... Hanging out at the river, up in the mountains, or on the central coast. -- Probably sipping all the wine I can get my hands/lips on! If any of that sounds fun to you, we will probably become best friends!  

If you're already a client, and just stoppin' by to check out how great you look on the World Wide Web, "Hey!" and I can't wait for our next session!
