Two years ago I joined an L3 Leadership Mastermind for business owners in the South Hills. At my first meeting I met Krista, a friendly realtor with curly red hair. During the meeting the leader asked us to give a number from 1-10 to rate our week. I immediately decided my week was a 10. The group members informed me that it’s not realistic to live at a 10. Krista turned to me and explained that she agreed but realized that although she also had a great week, some weeks could be even better, like if she were on vacation or if it was her birthday!
I’m so glad Krista took the time to explain her thought process and teach me that a nine is a more realistic way to live from week to week. Every encounter that I have with Krista is always full of fun, laughs and high energy.
I was thrilled to hear that her daughter is a senior in high school and they’d ready to schedule a senior portrait session. Kaili requested to have her photos taken in two iconic Pittsburgh locations: Color Park and on the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Kaili is beautiful, friendly and a natural in front of the camera! I hope you enjoy reading her interview and seeing her senior pictures highlighted below.
Best of luck during your senior year, Kaili, I hope it’s as amazing as you are! – Laura
