Leyla was born in Los Angeles, California. She spent part of her childhood in El Salvador where she acquired a passionate free spirit. She graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara where she pursued a Film Studies degree.  Simultaneously, she developed a deep interest in photography and began capturing her world through a lens.

Leyla currently lives in the Bay Area. She lives happily ever now with her husband, sweet baby boy and crazy dog Sadie. They spend as much time with their toes in the sand and enjoying the ocean. She continues to photograph life as it unfolds to treasure the little moments!
