I'm Cassandra !
I'm your fun and quirky Chicago-based photographer; ready to travel anywhere my camera takes me. I aspire to capture serene and joyous moments in the lives of all people and animals. With each new interaction, genuine amity and goodwill take shape through the bond of laughter; creating a delightfully authentic experience.
Once only a hobby, photography has inspired me to warm the hearts of others and so began my professional journey. I have been professionally documenting love and raw emotion since March of 2020.
I value a well-crafted approach with a refined finishing touch to bring forth emotional presence and adoration to your memorial keepsakes.
you love what you do".
Since I absolutely love what I do, it barely ever feels like "work".
Which reminds me...
what's that saying? Oh, yeah!
"When you do what you love,
Outside of photography,
I enjoy watercolor painting, gardening and movie nights. I have an eye for interior design and an ever growing collection of in-door plants.
I must admit, nothing else compares to quality time spent with those I love most in this world, especially time spent with my three rambunctious little floofsters.
Fur Mom? Most definitely.
Through my photography journey, I have met such wonderful souls. I am forever grateful to have the continued privilege to cross paths with those who inspire me daily.
Life is full of monumental occasions and special moments. I will joyously capture any love story or milestone, no matter how big or small.
Let's create beautiful
In my heart, love is love. Every love story deserves to be authentically preserved. I promise to create and nurture an inclusive environment for all.
Whether it be traditionally posed, or a raw-in-the-moment candid, a portrait is meant to capture the essence of its subject(s). The portrait sessions I offer are of families, motherhood, new born, couples, engagements, elopements/weddings and self love.
My style of work consists of photojournalistic candids crossed with traditional posing to elegantly showcase your intimately precious moments.

When I say this woman is an amazing photographer, she is amazing! She did our engagement shoot and captured our love so beautifully. I'm in love with every image. The location she found was stunning. Thank you again, Cassie! I got my photos back to me in a timely fashion and kept in touch. I'll definitely be booking again and I can't wait.
The moment I met Cassandra, we were speaking as if we were already great friends. Her energy is so kinda and loving; it was my first time being in front of a camera and I didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable at all! She was open to hearing my suggestions and did a wonderful job at shooting exactly what I imagined. Not only did she accommodate my schedule, but she literally got to work on my pictures the same day. I would absolutely recommend her!
