Meet Brandon, a Senior at Louisville High School in the Class of 2022 whose September senior portrait session at Gervasi Vineyard and the Louisville Stadium was so fabulous! We met at Gervasi and came up with a game plan based on his outfits, using his car, and timing to be at the Louisville stadium for the perfect sun angle. We started with this great clean look and I loved the results!
Brandon has such a great look and many expressions to capture, but that smile just lights up a room! Brandon's friends would say that he is hard working, kind, chill, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, and friendly. These are qualities that I see in his portraits and help to explain why I loved spending time with him for his portrait session.
Something that I find so interesting about Brandon is that he likes to trade stocks. He likes to watch entrepreneurs and learn more about business and stocks. He also likes to work to make money by land/hardscaping. As if that isn't enough of a workout, Brandon also enjoys working out for the sake of working out. When Brandon leaves high school, he is going to miss having fun with all of his friends and just being a teenager. He will be happy to no longer worry about his future in the same way that he does now. I hate to break it to you, Brandon, but you will always worry about your future. But, you have every reason to feel confident that yours will be bright! It makes sense that Brandon's future plans include attending college to study business, entrepreneurship, and marketing. You certainly have what it takes to do well in these areas!
After capturing Brandon in several settings in various outfits at Gervasi, it was time to move on to the Louisville Stadium to capture Brandon's love of lacrosse. Getting to shoot at the stadium with the lights on is such a treat for me. I get to use my expertise in lighting to create the desired effect. Brandon even let me spray him down with my "fake sweat" to create a realistic athletic grunge look. The following 3 images were all captured in the same conditions. It's just a matter of some lighting magic. What did Brandon have to say about his senior portrait session?
I chose Laura Esposito Photography because we saw the quality work that she did and decided she would be best for our photos. I liked how creative Laura was and how she took the time to make sure each shot was perfect! It's hard to decide but my top picks were when I was wearing a flannel and Laura got low to capture a low angle. I also really enjoyed the photos with my car. Lastly, it was so cool to end with lacrosse photos at the stadium. Overall, the whole experience was amazing!
Laura made my experience unique because she asked for my input and we both collaborated to come up with some amazing shots! She made sure I liked the photos by showing them to me after each scene.
For others using Laura, be ready for amazing photos and good quality work! Laura is very easy to work with and is very nice. If you have any worries, don't worry. Any problem that arises, Laura will get around it! You will be in a comfortable environment.
