About Marcela

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 6.33.10 PM


Meet Marcela – an adventure-seeking lover of photography who has some pretty epic life stories to tell!  It’s easy to see how all her experiences enrich her images and why they are so full of emotion!

Marcela has spent countless summers seeing gorgeous views and basically living life right out of a movie. When she was growing up, she spent time with her family in Mexico every summer and rode horses with her father in the wild hills. She’s obsessed with travel and even purchased a 1991 Chevy van (after selling all her belongings!) to take a two month road trip across the western part of America.  Marcela once even lived in Yosemite National Park while working at one of their hotels – it’s her favorite place in the world and favorite summer to date!

When she’s not trekking across the globe, Marcela is usually at the local comic book shop every Wednesday picking up the latest by Neil Gaiman and Brian K. Vaughan. She considers herself a comic book nerd! At the end of the day, her absolute favorite thing is being tackled by her Chihuahua/terrier pup Rupert. Who wouldn’t love that?!
