Leila's Background

Passion for photography and horses have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  I started photographing horses and equestrian events, for friends and for my own personal memories, when I bought my first film camera in 1989.  Experience as a competitor in hunt seat and eventing has been a huge contributor to my success as an equine sports photographer.

When I decided to take steps toward a new career, I enrolled in college and earned my degree in Professional Photography. My education through the years, has given me the experience and know-how to capture extraordinary images of all kinds, from commercial studio, to portraiture, fashion on-location, and sports.


I have been able to compile an impressive portfolio of equine sports, which is constantly being updated as I move through each season with successful days behind my camera. My images are sold not only to competitors but to publications as well. My Dover Saddlery cover is hopefully the first of many nationally published images.

Image retouching, and restoration of old, deteriorated photographs are another specialty of mine. I have extensive knowledge in many Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, and Illustrator. I'm also pretty handy with Dreamweaver for web design!
