Reviews from clients and what exactly makes Rooted Love special.

"Worth every penny."

Cassy has photographed my maternity photos, my daughter’s newborn photos, 6 month photos, and 1 year photos so far, we plan to use her annually. Our images look natural and not "staged". She gives plenty of good direction and the final images are nothing short of amazing. I would recommend her without hesitation, worth every penny!

Each milestone in your life is one worth documenting. The details fade and will leave you grasping for the memories. 

During your maternity session, you are glowing with new life growing inside of you. You and your partner are beyond excited and full of wonder. This is such a special time for the two of you to become a family of your own. No two pregnancies are the same, but each experience is truly such a miracle! 

When you bring your newborn baby home, your heart will be full of more love than you ever imagined possible. You might feel exhausted and overwhelmed, but that squishy little newborn will only be this tiny for a few short weeks. They change so quickly and in about 12 months, that baby you cradle will be walking! 

Annual family photos do not have to be stressful! Allow me to help you create your dream session. We will coordinate outfits together and learn how to make our time together memorable and fun. We want this to be a great experience with dad leaving and saying “that wasn’t so bad”. 

You can make one decision and be ready to capture all of your family’s special moments. From your baby bump to chasing your one year old, family photos at the beach, and everything in between, I want to be there. Together we will document your family's most sacred moments authentically, while you and your family enjoy your time together.

"I feel the love and energy of my family"

Our yearly photo sessions are so important to me and Cassandra is the photographer that finally felt like home. Her style is the perfect mix of candid and posed and her calm energy is so helpful with the kids. From wardrobe styling to final image selection - she helps every step of the way. Most of all, when I look back at my photos - I feel the love and energy of my family that she manages to capture. These images are treasures I will hold close to my heart forever and it’s an irreplaceable feeling as a mother.”

Let’s make magic together! Simply complete the contact form and provide a few details about your dream session. I will send over all of the information about collection options and share some recent galleries of my work. 

You may choose to book one session or enroll in my Motherhood Membership to have each milestone documented, from your baby bump to your baby’s first birthday.



Once we select a date for your session, I will be your guide, holding your hand through your session experience. We will decide on the perfect location and you will be sent a client questionnaire so I can get to know you better. Together, we will come up with the ideal look and feel of your session and start styling your family! I will send you a detailed session guide so you know exactly what to expect and can start dreaming of the beautiful ways you will display your favorite images. You will also have access to my favorite hair and makeup artists, recommended stores and my mama & baby wardrobe.



On the day of your session, we will meet at the location agreed upon. You can relax and enjoy this time with your family! I will provide plenty of direction to make sure you look your best. 

Newborn sessions are 60-90 minutes which gives us time for additional feedings, changes and soothing your newborn. Maternity and family sessions can be photographed in your home or at an outdoor location of your choice. The softest and most flattering light is 1-2 hours after sunrise or before sunset. Family and maternity sessions are usually about 45-60 minutes, enough time to get what we need but short enough so no one gets bored!



Approximately 3-4 weeks after your session, you will receive your online slideshow where you can view all your photos in the comfort of your home. I recommend gathering everyone together, putting this on the largest screen in your home and grabbing a glass of wine or cup of tea to enjoy with your family! Your slideshow is available for 24 hours, after which, you will choose your collection. Each collection includes a generous gift credit to use in the store to get you started with displaying your new favorite images!
Once you have selected your collection, you will have access to your gallery. You may download your favorite images and spend your gift credit on beautiful artwork to display your photographs!

""She put us at ease and captured such authenticity and connection."."

 The photos are such a gift and I'm so glad we have them to help remember this special time with our babies.

Frequently asked questions

How many images do you deliver in a gallery?

Great question! I usually deliver approximately 30-40 images in a full gallery for single photography sessions. You can expect your slideshow preview approximately 3-4 weeks after your session. Once you view your images, you will select the collection that works best for you. Membership clients will receive all digital files after each session.

Do you offer digital files? 

Yes! Each collection has a set number of digital files and a gift credit that may be used towards products such as custom designed albums, wall art galleries, print boxes, loose and framed prints. Collections start at $750. 

Do you only shoot film?

I shoot both film and digital. I love the look and feel of film but I also like the convenience and dependability of digital! You will have a mixture of film and digital images in your gallery.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! A payment plan may be started as soon as you book your session. That way, everything is paid for before your session and you can earn bonus credits!

Post session payment plans are not available. 

what should we wear? 

Together we will find the perfect look for you and your family. We will put together a mood board to bring your location and the style of your family together for a cohesive and timeless look. My favorite recommendations are to mix neutral colors, subtle patterns and lots of beautiful textures like knits and linen. 

what products should we get?

I have done so much research on photo products and only offer ones I have or want myself. I have albums of each child as a newborn, boxes of gorgeous prints, wall art and annual family albums. I would recommend an album for each baby and prints to share with your family. Each year, I would save your memories in an album or as beautifully framed prints so you can enjoy them every day! 

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes! I do offer gift certificates starting at the full amount for the Petite Collection. I ask that you are certain that the recipient wants my style of photography. I would feel terrible for the receiver to be disappointed in your gift if they have a different style in mind for their images. 

do you travel?

Yes, I actually travel for a lot of my sessions! I am based in Orlando, FL and spend a lot of time in Buffalo, NY. I also travel to Tampa, Naples, and the East Coast of FL beaches for sessions. A travel fee may apply. 

Please get in touch to discuss more in detail!

When should I book?

My schedule books up quickly. Expecting mamas typically book their due dates early in their second trimester. Maternity sessions are scheduled any time after 28 weeks, once your belly has popped, but you are able to walk and move comfortably. Newborn sessions are scheduled by your due date. Once your baby has arrived, we will decide on a session date during the first few weeks of life. To reserve your preferred dates, please book as soon as possible so I can keep dates available for you.
