Hi & Welcome!
I’m Cassandra. I’m a traveling lifestyle photographer for free spirited families, couples and women looking for an artistic, soulful experience. I believe that life moves fast, and that documenting those raw, intimate moments is a surefire way to be able to re-live them forever.
I absolutely love my little pup Jasper, being in the sun, barre classes, a good cup of coffee, traveling the world, writing poetry, and podcasting. I also believe that 8 hours of sleep and a tight hug can fix just about anything.
I’m incredibly passionate about sharing what I know with other photographers, and helping them to streamline their business while remaining authentic to their art. I’m a huge advocate for community over competition, and I feel so lucky to be in this industry.
Whether you’re a potential client or are eager to learn more about photography, you’re in the right place and I’m so happy you’re here.
*Based in Chicago & travels worldwide.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
I actually have a podcast episode about this subject! You can listen right here.
WHERE WILL MY LIFESTYLE SESSION BE HELD? I’m a huge fan of in-home sessions and picking locations that offer up what resonates most with you. If you vibe with the great outdoors, I’ll help find the perfect forest location. The same goes if you’re drawn more to the city. The options are endless and I’m always here to help and brainstorm creative ideas.
DO YOU HAVE A SPACE FOR BOUDOIR SESSIONS? All boudoir sessions are held at my home, unless you request to have it in yours or at a favorite hotel.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS? I do! Those fees aren’t included in the session price, but I’m always up for a good travel story.
WHAT ABOUT WEDDINGS? DO YOU TRAVEL FOR THOSE? All the time. I actually specialize in destination weddings (both international and domestic) and these days, destination weddings, elopements and intimate weddings (under 100 guests) are the only weddings that I take on. You can see some past work right here!
WHEN DO I PAY THE FINAL BALANCE? Not until the day of the session, before we begin. I will send you an electronic invoice for you to take care of, so no need to try and remember! I’ve got it covered :)
HOW LONG DO YOU WAIT AFTER BABY IS BORN FOR NEWBORN PHOTOS? My preference is within the first 2-3 weeks. But I’m absolutely flexible with how mama is feeling and adjusting.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS? I pride myself on a super quick turnaround time. Editing your images is one of my favorite parts of the process, so all images will be delivered within 48 hours of your session date unless started otherwise.
CAN I PRINT PHOTOS THROUGH YOU? Yep! Through your online gallery you have the option and ability to have any and all of your prints printed on high quality paper, where they’ll be delivered straight to your door within 5-7 days.
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS? Very rarely. In order to keep up with mini sessions that become available, your best bet is to sign up for the client newsletter which I send out once a month. This will alert you when/if those sessions become available!
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO GO ABOUT BOOKING? You can click here and pay for your retainer which will automatically put you in the docket. From there, simply send me an email and we’ll get to chatting about what it is you want out of your session and get you in the books! You can also fill out the contact form and book your session via an online invoicing platform that I email you personally.
