Laila is a midwestern photographer and graphic designer based in Milwaukee Wisconsin, who seeks to combine the two elements throughout her commercial works. She started her creative journey drawing and painting, and pulls inspiration from those mediums into her current work with photography. In her more commercialized pieces she takes a bold approach and allows color to play an important role in the stories she tells. There is also a great pride and joy that Laila takes in conceptualized portraiture. Her approach here is softer compared to her commercial pieces, nonetheless, she still uses color to help analyze the stories behind the portrait.
