"I've always wanted to re-create it," Pirrotta-Rivera told BuzzFeed News.

"It’s a photo that she always showed me when I was little. I would look at it when I was little and think, Oh my gosh, she’s so pretty."

Pirrotta-Rivera's mom, Lyndsay, died when she was a freshman. Her dad died two years later.
