Sprinkled throughout this journey are the little joys, moments of inspiration, and snippets of life that add color to our human experience. Join me as we embrace the beauty of imperfect perfection, the magic of a beautiful moment, and the endless possibilities of creativity.

    I love the warm colors and the silky textures. How much your girl has grown in the couple months I have been absent! My favorites are of her sitting in front of the glistening water with her dog. Beautiful.

  2. Well, your website is aptly named, once again these images are Simply Splendid. The windblown summer hair is absolutely perfect.

    each picture feels so carefully selected – the bits of sand on her knees, the three seagulls flying over the rooftops, the kite dangling in the wind, and your girl (and dog) in so many stolen private moments. i too like the wind and the feel of salt and sand and sun. they all feel very personal. have missed all your bring!

    super fun. Having beach envy as I write this ;)Image 2 and the last one are summer perfection and timeless!

  6. Beautiful Marla. I love how you captured her on the beach, showing beautiful water and sky. Wind in her hair – amazing. I think the last one is my favorite.

    Marla, these are gorgeous! All your images are lovely, but I especially love the first one and the last one! I’ve missed collaborating with you ladies, but just have not it a priority at this season of my life. But I still check in every once-in-a-while, and posts like this keep me connected and inspired!
    Thank you.
