Hi, I am Cassandra Marie.
Hi! I’m Cassandra, and I am absolutely obsessed with the stories told by pictures. When I look at photos, my imagination carries me into their world where I explore every detail and fall in love with the characters. I’ve always known that I wanted to create my own stories through photography, and I’m amazed that it’s exactly what I get to do now!
My second obsession is seeing people who are happy. My goal is to draw out genuine smiles throughout a photo shoot, and then preserve that moment as a precious memory. My clients receive finished images that they never dreamed of, but now can’t live without.
Photography is not just storytelling, but it’s also a dynamic way to preserve history. As we get older and share pictures from our past with the next generation, we give our loved ones a sense of family, belonging, and legacy that they could never get in a social studies class. As a portrait photographer, my goal is to help people record their history in familiar settings that spark nostalgia and amazing memories.
I feel that it’s a great honor to be invited into someone’s life to help tell their story. I love to watch couples and families interact with each other. I encourage them to act naturally while I fade into the background and capture the mood, the love, and the affection. I want every photo session to be stress-free and comfortable so that the happiness I capture is genuine. When people look back at their photos, I want them to remember what a great day that was and how much fun they had.
My hope is that my clients will use me as their official storyteller. As I carefully preserve each milestone – maternity, newborn, birthdays, family, senior portraits, engagements – one family’s journey becomes a beautiful story told in pictures.
“Cassandra not only took photographs, she captured moments. She enabled us to feel completely at ease while giving us gentle direction. The most important thing to us was that our pictures were not only candid, but truly reflected our personalities and our love for each other. We could not have been more happy with the outcome. Cassandra was everything we could’ve wanted in a photographer and we are so grateful to have those emotions and memories to look at forever.”
