About Laina

I am a Street Photographer, an activist, a vagabond, a mom, a feminist, a wannabe rockstar and a really big nerd.

I have journeyed to the Grand Cayman Islands, Canada, Mexico, Bali and 48 out of 50 of the United States of America with my camera. In addition to earning a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography, I spent nearly six years shooting women's roller derby in the early 2000's as the staff photographer of the Arizona Roller Derby League, earning myself the derby name, Triggerhappy.

My artwork has appeared in a variety of publications and media outlets such as HBO's original TV series: Enlightened starring Laura Dern, GSNTV's hit show: Skin Wars, featuring Ru Paul, Hawaii 5-0 on CBS TV, The Sun Magazine, Skin and Ink Magazine, The Advocate, Inspired Eye Magazine, Nailed! Magazine, Edge of Humanity Magazine, Electric Mustache, The Phoenix New Times, The East Valley Tribune, Studio Vox, SLAM Magazine, Tempe Starving Artist Magazine and multiple books depicting the growing sport of women's roller derby.
