Serina Cardoni is an artist and studies visual communications in Los Angeles. She is 20 years old but has a mature and serious disposition. It took a little doing, but I was able to get her to crack a smile. Every now and then, I run into a girl who believes that a 'Blue Steel' stare has to be given in order to be an ideal subject for photos. When Serina let her guard down and relaxed her striking features, I was completely smitten, however, it happened less frequently than desired. Eventually, I sorta let her do her thing and simply felt grateful to photograph such a beauty. This is Serina's actual artwork and the smoke is her actual medication. Although I find weed generally makes a shithead of myself and others, I could not resist Serina's invitation to sample her 'girl scout cookies'. Intense.
