Meet Genevieve | Jackson HS | Class of 2021

My session with Genevieve, a senior in the Class of 2021 at Jackson High School, was held at Varian Orchards in East Canton which offered the perfect variety of settings to complement this dynamic young lady.  Just as the orchards are full of life and vibrance, so is Genevieve.  The weather wasn't exactly cooperative when we first arrived, so we improvised and made some inside spaces work.  These are some results of that situation, and it was most definitely a blessing.



Fortunately, the conditions improved and we made our way outside.  True to Genevieve's adventurous style, we incorporated her hat for some of my favorites.  Oh, those gorgeous eyes!

I absolutely love it when my Senior comes with a vision, and that is what Genevieve did as her family found and brought this great chair to incorporate into the session.  As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly where I wanted to use it.  Add the hat, and we have something really special!  These are among Genevieve's favorite portraits, and I have to agree.





And, you can't go to an orchard without playing in the trees.


So, let's share a little more about Genevieve and then we will see why these next portraits are so appropriate.  She runs track, but loves to hang out with her friends and is always up for trying something new.  She loves hiking, taking pictures, boating, and anything else that might be exciting.  She is quite the country music fan and especially loves attending concerts at Blossom and going to Country Fest in the summer.  Her friends describe her as upbeat, always in a good mood, open-minded, and down for anything.  So..... when I suggest that she sit in the weeds and get in the water for some of her portraits, she didn't hesitate one minute.  And, yes, the results were fabulous!





Sadly, we were losing daylight, but we still had one more outfit to go.  I just loved the variety that Genevieve brought to the session.  She loves to shop at Dry Goods along with Lululemon and Levi's jeans.  Fortunately, we found some settings to make this work, and even took advantage of the evening sky for a dramatic look.  





Genevieve plans to attend Akron University or Kent State University for the first two years to complete her associates degree.  Then, she will be going to the Salem branch of Kent State University to become a radiologist or X-ray technician.  Genevieve, you are going to bring so much life and energy wherever you go. I am so thrilled that I got to capture you at this stage in your life because you are obviously going places.  I will be cheering you on every step of the way.  Best wishes to you!

Love and Smiles,



What did Genevieve have to say about her senior portrait session?

I chose Laura Esposito Photography because my brother got his done by her and I really liked the way they turned out which was a great decision because she is so nice, upbeat, comforting, and overall just made the experience great and made me feel comfortable.  She knew exactly what angles to get to make me glow and look the way I did.  All the pictures came out great and she always had a good eye for placement and light.  Everything went great and overall was a really fun time.  I couldn't imagine it going any better than it did.
