The transformation of the female body is an absolute miracle.
That little flutter, those tiny kicks, you are creating a new life inside of you. Has anyone told you how amazing you are? What your body is doing is absolutely magical. This is a gift and a time to be cherished. You and your partner will soon move from a couple to a family. This is a remarkable milestone in your life. What do you want to remember about this special time?
These are the good days.
I want to show you how incredible you are, mama. You are someone’s whole world. Together, we will focus on the beauty in the chaos. The work you are doing each day is the most important work. You deserve to remember all of the goodness.
These moments you are living now are the ones you'll look back on & want to remember.
Life is sometimes wild and chaotic with children. There is so much to do and life is just busy. The years are flying by. How can you freeze time for just a little while, and breathe in that one perfect moment?
I am here to help you preserve the beauty in these days.
Annual family photos do not have to be stressful! We will coordinate outfits together and make our session time memorable and fun. I want this to be a great experience for you and the kids with dad leaving and saying “that wasn’t so bad”.
Believe me, I have been there!
It's not some continuous thing we can ever strive to achieve. Hopefully, we can be present enough to realize when one of these moments is unfolding for us, not merely once it has become a memory.
I believe my experiences as a mother of three help me to truly see the magic in your family. Where you may see chaos, I find beauty. As an Orlando family photographer, I am drawn to the little things you do. A kiss on your baby’s cheek, swiping your hand through your toddler’s hair, kneeling down and making a boo boo all better. It’s these daily occurrences that seem ordinary now, but melt away as our babies continue to grow. It’s time to put down your iPhone and make those memories with your children with YOU in them!

Perfection only lives in little moments.
"she made us feel completely at ease"
We have used Cassandra for maternity, newborn and most recently my daughter's one year old photos. She is amazing to work with and makes you feel completely at ease. My absolute favorite thing about Cassandra and all of our photos is that she captures moments so candidly and naturally which allows you to feel the emotion behind each image. I am continually impressed and look forward to many more sessions together.
HOW IT WORKS
Let’s make art together! Simply complete the contact form and provide a few details about your family. 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 Signature Membership to have each milestone documented with your family.
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, online styling service and client wardrobe for mothers & babies.
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.
Orlando 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 sessions are usually about 45-60 minutes. Sessions are child led, so we will get what we need and when they are done, we are done...there is no reason to drag it out. Use that time to treat everyone to ice cream or something fun together!
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 something delicious 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!

How many images do you deliver in a gallery?
I deliver approximately 40-50 images in a full gallery for single Orlando maternity photography sessions. You can expect your slideshow preview about 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 $1350.
Don’t worry! I will walk you through selecting a beautiful and cohesive wardrobe for your family. After booking, we will schedule a planning call to discuss what to wear. You will have access to my online styling service with shoppable links to make selecting and purchasing outfits simple and fun for the whole family!
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 if my children do not behave?
Sessions with children are child-led. We will have fun with lots of tickles and snuggles, explore and take breaks for snacks as needed. Kids will be kids and your attitude is everything. If the adults smile at whatever your little ones are doing, the images will be great! I recommend bringing along a favorite toy that you won’t mind in your photos and some non-messy snacks. I also encourage a special treat afterwards like going out for ice cream or a favorite family activity so your little ones are excited about the whole experience.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! I offer gift certificates starting at the full amount for the Minimalist 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 travel for many 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.
We are going to have to change that. If you look at images and just critique yourself, you are missing all the joy and beauty reflecting back at you from your family. They love you and need you so much. You are their role model, their guide and their compass. Take a look at yourself through the mirror they are reflecting back at you. They see you as their whole world. You are beautiful, strong and amazing just as you are. I hope you will see that too!
