I am so excited to get to feature Sierra, a Senior in the Class of 2021 at Louisville High School. Our senior portrait session at Zoar Historic Village had faced some obstacles including weather, but was so worth the wait! Sierra had some distinct visions for her portrait session, and I was totally on board. One of our objectives was to pay tribute to her grandfather whom she had lost to suicide. Her sweatshirt that she designed and the very special picture help to tell the story, but it is her expression and the pain in her eyes that bring the emotion to this portrait.
After focusing on such a meaningful purpose, we lightened things up a bit and found this great rustic setting to perfectly match Sierra's great sense of style. Sierra is a kind of "no nonsense" kind of girl, and can make a statement with very little fuss. I love that. Her friends would describe her as outgoing and intelligent. Both of these features make her so endearing.
I can't get enough of those eyes and those dimples. So, we decided to capture a few in the garden before we made a wardrobe change.
Sierra's next outfit really made those beautiful eyes pop. Those eyes are tuned in to see things in a clear, yet different way, as Sierra is into art. She also likes fishing and Texas Roadhouse.
Sierra has a level of maturity and innate caring that stems from her close relationship with her mom. These two are practically twins, and getting a lovely portrait of them together was priceless.
After one more outfit change, we made our way to the covered bridge. I purposely timed our location change so that we could take advantage of the warm glow of sunlight. Sierra said that these are among her favorite portraits, and I must agree. Not to mention, this outfit is my favorite!
Sierra plans to use her talents to go to college to become a radiology technician. Sierra, any direction that life takes you will be rewarding as long as you bring your deep compassion and positive spirit. I wish you all good things and will be cheering you on with pride.
Love and Smiles,
What did Sierra have to say about her senior portrait session?
"I chose Laura Esposito Photography because she is amazing at what she does and made me feel very comfortable. I knew she would capture the best portraits. I loved all of the fun poses and beautiful scenery."
