Hello and welcome! I'm Cassie, a lifestyle portrait photographer based in Algonquin, Illinois.
My photography journey over nearly the last decade has been an experience of great self discovery filled with many life lessons. After taking a 6-year hiatus from pursuing portrait photography in order to get a "real job" doing marketing and photography for an engineering company in the oil and gas industry, I made the decision to follow my heart and return to pursuing what I love doing most - providing lasting memories for incredible people by documenting their relationships, love, and connection.
Sometimes our lives take us on detours, and while these can be wonderful learning experiences, there is no greater feeling than finding yourself back on your own path.
I feel most alive when I am behind my camera, transfixed by the magic of freezing beautiful moments in time. It is my greatest joy to document your cherished loved ones, and preserve your memories for years to come. You know what your love feels like; I want to provide you with images of what it looks like.
