ABOUT NAILA

Moments are fleeting, photos are not.

Hello! My name is Naila ("Ny-la") and I am so happy to meet you!

 

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!) and relocated to Melbourne, Florida in 2012. In 2020, I decided to make a massive change and relocate to Orlando, where my husband Reuben and I are raising our 2 meowing fur-babies, Katara and Toph. As fair bit of warning, I am very sarcastic, and a perpetual overexplainer (probably self-explanatory considering how much text is on this "about" page...).

My passion in photography started when I would look through my parents' old photo albums and listen to their stories. Being a child of immigrants, I was always intrigued by my parents' childhood experiences in Bangladesh, and found myself lucky that they held on to a decent number of photographs to as mementos of their time there.

 

Once I was old enough to pick up a camera, I carried a disposable camera around me wherever I went to capture candid moments of my family and friends. Though at the time they found it unnecessary and a little annoying (and probably still do!), now they are the only tangible way for us to fondly remember that moment in time, just like my parents' childhood photos that I would peruse.

I'm a firm believer that the best moments are captured when you are least expecting it. While I do capture some classic posed photos, my favorites tend to be the ones where you're naturally interacting with your partner and/or family. My editing style is vibrant and warm -- I love to enhance the colors that are already in your photos, and really make it pop!

Let's be honest, getting out for an hour or two just to have a stranger follow you around to take photos might feel uncomfortable at first, but it's my job to make sure you can (at minimum) tolerate camera-wielding me. It can be daunting and a little silly, but I welcome you to be my partner on this photography journey so we can be silly, together!
