Hey! Layra here.
I'm a proud Dominican Republic native that relocated to Brooklyn when I was 8 years old. That should tell you a lot about me already...
My favorite part of photography is having a great time together. We dance, we laugh, we sing - it doesn't feel like work for either of us! It's playtime that happens to be captured in fly photos. It's important to me that your photos show the real you. The "you" that I see that is thebomb.com and ready to change the world. I love taking photos of colorful and creative people because I know that when I was younger, I didn't see a lot of that in the media. I wanted to see people just like me represented in their best light.
When I'm not photographing amazing people, you'll still find me exploring all parts of NYC to take more photos or curled up at home in the corner with a juicy novel.
WHAT MY ROCKSTAR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I’ve never had so much fun taking photos before. Working with Layra is more like playing with Layra. We explored different locations and there was this vibe of experimentation and creativity that allowed me to show the best parts of myself. Layra is one of those high vibing individuals that awaken that high vibing part of you. I can’t wait to work/play with her again.
