The Main Character.
Hi, I'm Kaylista, and trying to explain who you are to others is such a ridiculous ask but I'll do my best, and yes, my red flag is that I totally have main character energy.
As a 25-year-old multi-passionate creative, I wear a lot of hats and do a lot of things because I honestly still just don't know what I want to be or do when I grow up.
So while I'm navigating my purpose and calling, I'm creating. I write blogs because I'm passionate about the power of words and stories. I cultivate community while designing and creating for my clients. I document important moments in other people's lives through wedding and portrait photography. And I immerse myself in culture and diversity through adventure and travel.
I grew up in a farm town in the most northwestern corner of Ohio. My hometown has less than 2,000 people in it's population. I'm not kidding.
After a whirlwind of events, I found myself 23, lost in the sauce of life, and in desperation to spread my wings. I sold everything I owned, packed up what only fit in my 2012 Jeep Liberty and in February 2022 I moved to Denver, Colorado with no job lined up, enough money for 1 month's rent, and a whole lot of faith!
In Denver, I found myself despite finding my footing. Life was inexplicably difficult. I hit rock bottom, but on the rise up, I met my person and shortly after moved to Copenhagen, Denmark to live abroad together for a bit! We're finishing our time living as Dane's and headed back to Colorado come late April where I'm starting a new career path, and focused on building a life that this next version of me is excited about.
In the meantime, I'm renovating. I'm reconstructing my approach to life; logging off earlier, exercising more, calling my loved ones, getting uncomfortable, setting boundaries, and of course - diving real deep into what's next for me.
Above all, I'm human and a friend. Follow me on socials, ask me out to coffee or to zoom, book me for a shoot, or let's collaborate!
If you read this far, I hope you feel like you've found a new friend. Thanks for being here, and I hope to hear from you soon.
Kiss Kiss Caio,
