Abigail (Abby) is a senior in the class of 2021 at Louisville High School and brings with her a multitude of talents and interests to ensure a very engaging portrait session. Add to that her sweet and fun personality, and we are really in for something special. That is exactly what we got! We decided to hold her portrait session in Historic Zoar Village and found a great variety of inspiration. The images below are a testament to how well we hit the ground running.
We even received some encouragement from passersby in vehicles on the street. That hilarious incident inspired this smile (laugh) that you see here.
After such a successful set, we decided that we were ready for an outfit change and a short drive to the bridge. This is where we captured some of Abby's favorite portraits. You see, along with her interests in band and riding horses, Abby also loves playing with her dogs. Abby's dad was kind enough to bring Mya to the session so that she could take part in the fun, too.
Abby's friends would describe her as being caring, a good listener, loyal, friendly and funny. I wanted to be sure that all of these qualities had a chance to shine through in her portraits.
I think that we could have stayed at the bridge all day, but we knew that we wanted to use the beautiful garden as a setting, too. So, we headed back to the Historic Village and made another outfit change. Speaking of outfits, I just love Abby's style. As it turns out, she likes making selections from Shein or American Eagle. She also likes grilled cheese and the movies Titanic and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. She is very active in band, as you will see later in the blog, as well as Hope Squad and National Honors Society. As if that isn't enough, she is dedicated to her projects each year in 4-H.
As you can see, I so often spot another setting that I want to use and we get a little side-tracked. I soooo loved this outfit and knew it would look fabulous on these steps. I look at these and think, "this is just so Abby."
Okay, so now we are really going to the garden. I just love the outfit that we saved for this spot. The sun was hitting that gorgeous glowing angle and everything just kind of fell into place. Well.... we did plan for it to fall into place. We were just happy that it worked!
So, I already mentioned that Abby is dedicated to the Louisville High School Marching Band. Well, I did not mention that she happens to be one of the drum majors. Achieving this position is quite an accomplishment and we absolutely had to capture that!
As you can see, Abby is an absolute pleasure and I so enjoyed our time together. She plans to go to Kent State to study psychology. I know that any direction that life takes Abby, it will be special, indeed. Abby, I wish you all good things and will be your biggest cheerleader as you move on to your next chapters in life.
Love and Smiles,
What did Abby have to say about her portrait session?
"I chose Laura Esposito Photography because I really liked the portraits that Laura had completed before and I heard a lot of great things about others' sessions with her. Normally, I don't like getting my picture taken, but Laura made it very fun and enjoyable. Some of my favorite portraits were the ones I could take with my dog, and ones and in the garden, and the ones on the bridge. I had a great time and love my pictures!"
