HS Senior

Marisa - HS Senior Model - HHS

I am thrilled to introduce Marisa, my first HS Senior Model for the 2016 campaign. Marisa currently attends Highland High School in Gilbert (HHS), Arizona, and will graduate in Spring of 2016. Marisa is a beautiful, young lady; smart and easy to get along with. Marisa's goal is to study Physiology at the University of Arizona. I am certain that Marisa will archive her goal. She is part of the National Honor Society, an Athletic Training Student Aid, and enjoys volunteering her time at various projects. On weekends, Marisa enjoys spending time with family and friends.

Marisa and I decided to meet up in downtown Phoenix for the photo shoot. I always wanted to photograph there, and I was thankful that Marisa agreed. We had a great time, and here are some of my/our favorite images:


To see all of Maria's photographs from the session, please check out her Animoto video.

If you would like to book your own HS Senior session, please email me so that I can send you the pricing guide for HS Seniors 2016. HS Senior sessions start at $250.

Thank you for stopping by - until next time, keep smiling.

Class of 2016 - Model Call

Are you currently a HS Junior, graduating in 2016? Do you feel comfortable in front of a camera? Are you outgoing and like to have fun? Then maybe we can work together. I am looking for 3 HS Juniors in the East Valley of Metro Phoenix to get the word out about Iris Nelson Portraits’ High School Senior program. What's in it for you? A free session, on-line photo gallery, a fab phone-APP, profile pic for FB/Instagram (or any other social network), blog post featuring you, rep-card, and earning toward your own HS Senior session in spring of 2016. So what do I gain? Working with you and hopefully photographing other HS Seniors that are just as awesome as you are. Check out this short video to see my work:

How do you apply? Very simple! Shoot me an email by February 15th. I will send you a short questionnaire so that I can find out a little about you. Once I narrow down my selection, I will meet with you in person to go over the details.

Since I am asking you to share about yourself, here are a few things about me: I enjoy life and take every obstacle as an opportunity to grow. I live life loved, because I am. I sometimes laugh so hard, I cry. I have a grown son who I am proud of. I like to spend time with my husband, our two dogs…a good book or great movie. Photography is my passion and I love telling the story of interesting/fun people.

The legal stuff: In order to work with me, I need you or your parents (if you are under 18) to sign a model release form. The photographs that are taken during the free session will be part of my ad-campaign for the 2015/2016 HS Senior season.

I am looking forward hearing from you!
