Hi, I am Charla.
I am a Newborn, Maternity, Family & Boudoir photographer located in the beautiful Okanagan in little town called Penticton BC. I took a leap of faith and left my successful photography studio, Charla Marie Photography, that was located in Prince George BC. We moved our entire family to warmer climates in hopes of trading cold long winters for sunny wine country.
I'm very passionate about photographing little wee ones to everything beautiful! I have specialized in newborn and maternity photography for over eight years and have trained with some of the best photographers in the world such as Angie from Myrtle & Moss Photography and Alli from Glow Portraits. I have been obsessed with photography since I first put my hands on a camera at five years old. I remember how much I loved making a camera out of a coffee can in elementary school. I loved shooting pictures in high-school and I couldn't wait to get into the darkroom to develop my film. I really miss film and watching your image appear before your eyes. I have worked in many photography labs but find my true passion is behind the lens.
If I had to pick another profession it would definitely be interior design, I have a very strong desire to pretty much redo every space when I walk in it. As I've entered my forties I realize I'm pretty introverted, I love drinking coffee, I'm addicted to HGTV, and I'm pretty much happy going for a drive exploring the beautiful outdoors and spending time with my family. I live with my three crazy dogs, two daughters, stepson and my fiance. Thats me summed up in a few paragraphs.
“Charla is so easy to work with, I felt confident in everything she asked me to do. I have never felt more beautiful having my maternity photos taken. Charla is lovely and professional. Will be using her services again in the future!”
