Meet Carla

My eyes are my greatest asset to see you, but my heart experiences your life in tangible form, captured and printed into photographs. I love to get to know you, to hear your reasons for loving and caring so deeply about your loved ones I am about to photograph. My gift, as a photographer, is to see your beauty. Photography is the avenue through which I will show you how absolutely incredible you are, how your loved ones see you. I have found much happiness in watching families experience love when holding their photographs. My talents, combined with your real love for each other, preserved forever in print.

A session with Studio Carla is not just a way to share for one day on Facebook, but a more long term investment in your family heirlooms. I am here to create your lasting memories.

I am a people watcher… I love to know others and I am fascinated by those around me.
I am a mother of four children and a lover of babies.
I married my high school sweetheart who is my greatest friend and support.
I wish I lived on a tropical island. I love the island breeze and the smell of flowers.
I could shop for vintage items for days. I love that someone else loved it first.
I love the Lord and I’m always growing and stretching into more of who I am created to be.
I genuinely care about and love others, I want everyone to succeed in healthy ways.
I love quiet walks on the beach and loud extended family gatherings.
