Couple Session: Kelli and Phillip

"We do love each other, I swear," Kelli playfully reassured me about half way through our session Sunday at the beautiful Blacklick Woods Metro Park in Reynoldsburg. But she didn't have to tell me. I could tell. They teased each other non-stop and as far as I'm concerned, love is the only thing that could have convinced Phillip that a two hour photo shoot (complete with two outfit changes) was a good idea. But he was a great sport and Kelli was born to be in front of a camera. She was always ready with a killer smile and her amazing red hair was always shinning in the sunlight. Things like that make my job easy.

Sunday was absolutely beautiful weather. Even Kelli and Phillip's dogs loved it. The beautiful Darcy and Dippy had matching blinged out collars that just pulled their little family together so well. I've never worked with dogs before and I have to admit, I was a little nervous. But these two lovely ladies were literally smiling in the pictures. Couldn't ask for anything more.

I cannot get over how cute these two are together. Although, Kelli laughs when I use the word cute. But it's my favorite way of describing these two. I like to talk to my subjects when we're shooting to keep everyone loose and happy. And the look they gave each other when I asked about how they met was nothing less than hilarious. The answer I got was just as unique and incredible as the two of them. I'm so glad that these two chose to spend such a wonderful Sunday afternoon with me and share their story and their love with me. I'll never get tired of listening to love stories.

Fall Frenzy

What a week it has been! The gorgeous, unexpected, Summer-like weather is the only thing that has kept me sane. I had two amazing shoots this past weekend. One on Saturday with the always amazing Foltz family and a Sunday afternoon shoot with Ms. Kelli Carroll and her lovely boyfriend, Phillip Case. Both shoots were such a treat and the sun never seemed to stop shining all weekend. I apologize that I don't have more time to blog lately but we're heading into week 9 at OSU and things are really starting to pile up. So here's a sneak peak at the Kelli and Phillip shoot, stay tuned for a full post coming later in the week. Also, I have another wedding this weekend and will be keeping you up to date on that. Thanks for everyone's support and love. Things are really picking up for me and I cannot express my gratitude enough!

Keep smiling!

Lessons and Thanksgivings

It's my dream to be a successful wedding photographer (I don't know if you could notice by the blog or anything). And the month of October was such a great month for my budding business. I got to shoot a beautiful wedding and some amazing family pictures. But most importantly, I learned a lot. Through  every conversation with potential clients and every photo shoot- I was given the opportunity to succeed and to fail. And no matter what the outcome, I got to take a step away from the situation and start to analyze. I guess it's just the college student in me, but I'm always preparing for that next test, the next conversation, the next shoot. So I can do better. I want to improve. I want to find new amazing ways to suprise my clients and my self.  I want to offer them everything they've dreamed of and give them so much more. Lofty goals, I know. But you have to aim for the stars.

And I've got some crazy day dreams. The wish list of photography equipment I have compiled is too long and about $100,000 too crazy to think about without making me drool. The schedule I dream about having in a few years after I 'make it big' requires a few additional months on the calendar and at least 8 more daylight hours. Now of course I do have the regular kinds of day dreams too- an ice cream truck tips over in front of my house, I find an inexpensive high heel that's just as comfortable as my flip flops, and all of the rude drivers in the world are abducted by aliens. Those are normal day dreams, right?

Until the day of to-die-for camera lenses and unlimited ice cream, I'm okay with having my feet on the ground. Because I have an amazing  family and friends who couldn't be more supportive. Thank you so much to the clients who have already taken a chance on me. And a huge thanks to anyone reading this blog. It means more than you could ever know.

It's November now. The month of amazing fall colors and thankfulness. The month is already starting out pretty well- I have a family shoot Saturday and a 'just for fun' shoot Sunday with a couple, so new pictures will be arriving shortly. Both of these were scheduled completely last minute. So if you still want to squeeze in some last minute family pictures or get a great fall photo shoot before the weather turns terrible- please, contact me. Like always- it's Kaylina Norton Photography on Facebook or you can email kaylinanorton@gmail.com. And expect a lot more of my bubbly, happy rants throughout this month leading up to Turkey Day. Until then I'll be dreaming and learning from everything. Because life's tests are always cumulative.

And because everything is better with a picture attached... Meet Weezy, my hedgehog. She makes me pretty happy.

Love you guys and keep smiling!
