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.

Every spokesMODEL will get a FREE “model” session.  It most likely will be at a location of my choosing.  I am always looking for new locations to photograph.  I also am always looking for different opportunities here at the studio.  We also have another favorite location to photograph at and that is “The Bluffs”.  Morgan Medelberg from MICDS chose “The Bluffs” location for her FREE Senior Session.  Morgan sent us one Class of 2015 spokesMODEL so far.

I love it when our spokesMODELS love their model session images and their senior session images.  Carina Marino was a Rising Star model for us.  She came to us right after her Sophomore year and I did a mini model shoot with her.  Our Rising Stars get to try us out with no commitment and get FREE social media images. Carina then became a Class of 2014 spokesMODEL.  Carina always talked about us to her friends and sent us 3 senior clients.  Carina chose some amazing images from her Rising Star Session, Model Session and Senior Session for her final products.
