I am going to guess who you are thinking is a generational thing….my first thought when Marisa posed for me in this shot was, WOW…she looks just like Vanessa Marcil (a little Beverly Hills 90210 flashback!). So I say, “Has anyone told you that you look like Vanessa…” and both Marisa and her mom interrupted and said, “Vanessa Hudgens, yeah, all the time.”

So I thought for a second, and said, “Well, yes you do look like her too….but I was thinking Vanessa Marcil!”

So it is up to you…who do YOU think she looks like???

Anyway….get to know Marisa a bit better…this gorgeous, sweet senior from Carmel Catholic High School was a pleasure to photograph…you would never know it was freezing the day we took these!

What has been your proudest moment in high school so far?

My proudest moment in high school so far has been being inducted into the National Honor Society. I feel so honored that I have been able to represent my school in such a positive way. It has challenged me academically to keep my grades up and to provide extra hours of service to and outside the school.

Do you have a favorite quote?

“Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” -Marilyn Monroe

What is your dream job?

My dream job is doing what I love and what makes me happy. I want to wake up every morning and smile because I have a job that I enjoy.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I’ve always dreamed of traveling to Italy because it’s such a beautiful country with so much history and amazing food. I would love to see Verona, especially Juliet’s wall of love letters, and the Colossuem.

What are your plans after high school?

After high school, I plan to go to college and study physical therapy specifically to work with athletes. I hope to work with a professional sports team.

Name a favorite memory from attending Carmel Catholic High School.

One of my best memories from high school so far is my Junior year prom! I had so much fun with all of my friends and the pictures, courtesy of Britt Anderson Photography, turned out amazing. I’ve had a lot of fun at all of the dances at Carmel but prom, by far, has been the best.

What did you do like most about doing your senior portraits with Britt Anderson Seniors?

My senior photo shoot was a blast! It was really cold outside but I was able to forget about the cold and feel like a super model. Britt was easy to get along with and had grest ideas. I can’t thank you enough Britt you did an amazing job with my photos, I love them!
