Hi! My name is Lais (La-ees), and I’m a Chicago-based photographer.
I mostly photograph families, children and couples. Stylistically, I try to keep it real; that is, I aim to capture people and interactions between people in as natural and relaxed a state as possible.
I’ve enjoyed photography since my teenage years. I started to take it seriously 5 years ago and began to shoot professionally in 2015.
I moved from Brazil to Chicago in 2012, after marrying my husband, Greg. We have a four year-old girl, who, without a doubt, is the subject I photograph most (as evidenced by my Instagram account: @laisbowman). I also enjoy cooking, reading about, and - of course - eating food!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would just like to connect. I love making new friends and would be happy to hear from you!
