Who is your inspiration in life Kayla? How do you keep inspired?

I get inspired by anyone who has the same emotions into photography as I do or anyone who supports me fully which is my family. Someone who inspires me emotionally into photography is Jessica Kobeissi, and Andrew Kearns.

We all make mistakes Kayla; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
My biggest mistake with photography is how to deal with making money and figuring out how to rate with the clients.

Kayla , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

Being patient is key and learning more about them.

Please tell us, Kayla, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

Where to meet and the time is probably the best mind trick as a photographer.

Kayla, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I like to make them see my work a different way rather than what they see, so it has their mind think. 

Kayla, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest accomplished moment is when I got out of my shell to contact a model agency because I have a shy personality and having that trait makes it difficult to take my work and put it out there. So I'm glad it happened. 

Kayla, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The exciting part was finding that inspiration and getting prepared to do it. The difficult part is finding the space to do it. 

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

If you want to be a successful photographer, don't give up and think that nobody likes your art because there is someone out the really that does. So don't give up on your dreams.
