Marissa is a musician. She plays guitar, marimba, piano, uke, and drums as well as writes lyrics. She is in the jazz band, drum line and marching band. She sings to her steering wheel and makes music all the time.
Marissa is a friend. She enjoys hanging out with her friends more than most things and has four best friends who know everything about her that she would do anything for anytime.
Marissa is a giver. She is involved in her church’s youth group. She loves openly. She laughs freely. And she donates her time to those that need her more often than even she’s able to comprehend.
She enters her senior year of high school with confidence and drive. She looks to the future with faith and frugality. She has ideas. Hopes. Desires. Though she knows not what is to be, she’s happily enjoying the ride.
It was my pleasure and honor to ride with her through Laguna for a few hours one morning…
of course, had to grab a few with Dad…
Thanks so much for the opportunity, Marissa, Steve and Carolyn…it was such a joy to work with your beautiful family on this shoot. : ]
