Scarlett Lillian Workshops: Meet Kayla Mercedes

As part of the continue showcase of attendees for my 1st group workshop coming up next month, I'm excited to introduce you to Kayla Mercedes! A few months ago, Kayla's mom emailed me in secret wanting to give her daughter a surprise gift for Christmas. She said Kayla has been following my blog for a while and how she dreamed of being a photographer too and wanted to help her daughter turn her dreams into a reality. It was such an honor to record a surprise message for Kayla that her mom filmed of me and showed Kayla on Christmas morning!  I love seeing moms that support their daughters because my mom played such a big part of in helping me to turn my dreams into reality too!  I'm thrilled to also help give Kayla this great start to her career!  :-)

Will you grab one of the last seats available in the workshop?

1. Name:

5. Where are you coming from?
Jacksonville, Florida

6. What 3 words describe your photography?
Experimental, Bright, and Fun

7. What do you love most to photograph?
Love. I’m absolutely in love with love.

8. If you could photography anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
I think I would have to photograph Taylor Swift because I think she would be willing to try anything to get an amazing picture, no matter how crazy my idea might be.

9. What does fabulous mean to you?
Fabulous is having the courage to take risks, being your own person, having your own style, and trusting God to lead you through absolutely every aspect of life.

10. If you were on a deserted island, what three things would you want with you?
Why do I always have so much trouble answering this question???
My boyfriend (Chris), sweet-tea, and my pillow (I don’t travel anywhere without it!)

11. Who is your hero and why?
My parents because I think they did a pretty great job as parents and I hope that one day I’ll be able to do just as good with my own children as they did with me. Always supportive of my dreams. (Attending the workshop was a surprise Christmas present from them!)

12. If they made a movie of your life, what actress would you want to play you, and what would the title of your movie be?
I think I would want Rachel McAdams to play me because I love her in “The Notebook” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. (And I think I’ll have to make a request that my love interest be played by Ryan Gosling and we’ll pretend it’s a remake of “The Notebook”)
For the movie title, I’ll go with “Pink Dreamer” because practically everything I own is pink and I’m reaching for my goals and dreams about where I want to be with my photography and life.


13. What’s your favorite flavor of cupcakes?
Classic yellow cake

14. When you give thanks, what is on top of your list?
My parents. They are the ones who I persuaded to buy my Canon 50D (and all the other photography stuff to go with it) for my Christmas present last year.

15. What is one valuable thing you have learned as a photographer that you can pay forward to those reading this?
As tempting as it is to blog-stalk other photographers, if you’re just trying to copy what other people do exactly then you aren’t getting anywhere yourself. Browse other people’s blogs, there’s nothing wrong with that, but figure out how you can make things your own. Make your pictures unique. There is no right or wrong in photography. It’s what your clients think is right for them.
