Welcome! My name is Cassandra, in 2012 during my freshmen year at college I decided that I wanted to pursue photography part-time. Growing up in 4H and FFA I realized the hard work that was ahead of me and how rewarding being an entrepreneur can be.

All of my sessions are held on weeknights or weekends. I offer a flexible schedule. I can travel to sessions as well. Please note that mileage charges may apply.

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my boyfriend, family, and friends. My boyfriend (Sam) serves as my manager, together we have two four-legged office assistants (Sunshine & Cooper). I love when you bring your four-legged friends to your sessions! Up to three dogs are welcome to accompany any session as long as the location allows (fees apply).

During each session, you can expect a relaxed and fun environment! I want to capture you and your personality. My top priority is customer satisfaction, nothing is better than repeat clients and referrals!

Please use the booking session to ask any questions you may have. I am happy to help and if you don't see a session you are specifically looking for please send me a message. I am always up for trying a new session! Can't wait to see you in front of my camera!

"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made."
