Welcome! A few things I am passionate about: My husband, our children, my Jesus, and if I’m really honest, delicious hot pizza.
I’m a natural light photojournalistic/lifestyle photographer. It’s a mouth full, I know. It really boils down to this: I always aim to capture a family in their own element and style to capture your personalities. My goal is that your photographs represent you and your family as you are at that point in your life.
My joy for photography began in high school, pre-DSLR days. I learned a lot about how to take (and especially NOT take) beautiful images. Getting my hands dirty in the dark room turned my thoughts of that class from being a simple easy credit into a life passion.
I grew up in the Pensacola area and met my husband here during college. We were married in 2008 and it’s been a blast being married to the funniest guy I know. He not only laughs at my corny sense of humor, but also loves making me laugh. We have 2 daughters, Sarah and Elanor. Having children opened our eyes to all sorts of new things. One of those things, for me, was the beauty of childbirth.
There are few occasions in life that change us. Events that transform us into someone new. One of those instances happens to be when our families grow. When new life enters our world. Whether through pregnancy, adoption or fostering, when our families grow we experience new love. Since the moment that I held each of our own children I discovered a new passion. A passion that allows me to capture moments in our lives that bring a deep and new joy. Joy that brings smiles and tears to not only myself, but also to those whom I can share my passion with.
A few years ago I didn’t even know that birth photography existed. But, after our daughters were born, I discovered this beautiful form of art. I dove in with full force. New life. A baby’s first breath. A mother’s first glimpse of her child. A father’s tears. Each of these moments will never be repeated. They are gone in a second. Capturing these experiences is a beautiful gift. Each image holds more emotion than I knew possible. Specks of time that happen so quickly that the people involved may not have even seen them occur, that is, until they have a chance to look back. That chance is what I want to offer you.
If these moments sound like something you would like to have captured, then you have come to the right place.
My name is Cassie, and I am a birth photographer.
