Marissa is a competitive dancer from Surprise. She is fierce both on stage and in front of a camera! Kayla and I were fortunate to have the opportunity to learn more about the art and sport of dance while photographing her a few weeks ago. Dancing requires a lot of self-discipline, flexibility, and physical strength. It is a form of non-verbal expression, a sort of outlet for individuality. Marissa encompasses all of those traits and the confidence she has in herself is evident in these photos. I enjoyed collaborating with Marissa's family on creative posing and editing effects as well. I hope you enjoy this collection!
