Quirky, Cute & Creative Marissa

I posted a quick sneek peak of Marissa right before we ended out 2011 and now here is the big reveal of some of the other great images of her from her mentoring studio session.  When she wasn't behind the camera capturing images of her best friend Kristine, she was in front of it modeling so I could mentor Kristine as she photographed Marissa.  Both Marissa and Kristine took turns modeling and shooting.  They've been best friends since middle school and their partnership is one that can not be broken.

Of course I couldn't just stand there as Marissa and Kristine modeled.  I was mentoring and guiding each of them, but also had to jump in and capture some images of my own since we were having so much fun.  Both Kristine and Marissa have natural, creative minds so when you put these 2 together, you'll get an eclectic mix of props, expressions and all around fun.  I'm so blessed to have met both of these girls and will be sharing images soon from one of the most ambitious projects I have taken on to date, all with the help of Mariassa and Kristine.  Until then, here's Marissa.  Enjoy her smile, her infectious personality, and boisterous spirit.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
