Cover Model Marisa Nicastro

Every year I run a contest to see who will grace the cover of our Senior Magazine. The contest is run through social media – mainly Facebook and Instagram. This year Marisa Nicastro was our winner with the most “likes” on Facebook and Instagram. Marisa is a senior at Cor Jesu academy. The fun thing is that Marisa’s sister, Francesca, was our cover girl in 2013. And her cousin Carina Marion was the 1st runner up in 2014 and graced the back cover our our magazine. The Nicastro family is just adorable and so much fun to be around. We have a lot in common – especially our Italian heritage.

Marisa was just adorable on her model shoot. She was photographed in my new studio. The image that is on our front cover was photographed with natural light with the main light coming through our warehouse garage door. Her laughter in this images brings so much happiness to me. Her outfit was spot on and the hat added a lot of dimension to the photograph. Here is the link to Marisa’s other images from her model session.

The front cover of our magazine this year has a different look than in the past. I am excited about our new look and very proud of Marisa.
