Fine Art Motherhood Portraiture 




Isn’t it time you start making the work that lights you up? 

Imagine creating images that make you proud, elevating your portfolio, having the confidence to raise your rates and working with dream clients who are excited to collaborate with you. 

i want to work together

You are capable of running a business that serves your life goals. One that is full of creativity and also profitable. Your dream clients are out there, looking for you, waiting for you to speak to them and solve their problems. They love the unique way you see them and they want you to tell their story. 

I took the long way. I spent years learning on my own, perfecting my craft. I think of all those years I felt isolated out of fear. How quickly I could have improved had I invested in myself. Searching inward to enhance my creativity and the unique experiences I am able to provide was eye opening.

Are you ready to take your photography business to the next level?

You don’t have to do this alone. This is your shortcut and I am here to guide you. 

Welcome to CULTIVATE

Do you feel like you work so hard... yet you don’t have the time or money to invest in yourself… 

You chose photography so you could spend more time with your family and yet your nights and weekends are spent on shoots or at your computer.

You are trying to refine your style, but not quite sure what that should look like.

You are constantly worried when someone asks you for pricing

You may even feel overwhelmed and on the verge of burnout. It’s so much, but it’s terrifying to say no! 

"She is consistently patient and encouraging and serves as creative inspiration."

I started off with very little knowledge of photography concepts and camera use. Cassy has such an easy way of explaining how to adjust settings and how to frame the subject that just make sense! I went from being very nervous having a camera in hand, to a confident photographer!

I was busy, photographing sessions most days of the week, having my photography work featured and writing articles that were published. It was everything I thought I wanted, but I felt tired, overwhelmed and guilty about all the hours I was not spending with my family. I figured out how to work smarter and not harder and got my time back. I want the same for you! 

Whether you are just starting out and need technical help, are an established photographer building your brand, or are on the verge of burnout and want your life back, I will meet you where you are and get you to where you want to be! 

Guess what? I experienced those feelings not too long ago.
