Summer Personal work | Oregon film photographer

August 30, 2013

I’m Marla
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.

One of my favorite things is photographing my sweet daughter on film in our everyday life. The color, gasp–so vibrant and full of life. Here is a sampling of our awesome summer together. Film stocks: Fuji 400H and Kodak Gold 200


Marla Cyree of Simply Splendid specializes in film photography in Portland, Oregon as a newborn, family, and wedding photographer.
