We won’t get today back. We need to remember where life happened, who was there, how it felt and why it mattered. It’s important to me, and it’s important to you.

Life is  about celebrating and acknowledging your season. It’s about taking the time to give thanks to your family, your space, yourself and your love. It’s about inviting someone to share these moments with, and to make a way to preserve them in our changing lives.

I'm a teacher, photographer and foster parent in Chicago; I have the good fortune of witnessing all kinds people evolving in an ever-changing city. No two seasons are ever the same, and making photographs out of sacred moments is my constant passion. The moments are so brief. Remembering and celebrating this life is a gift. I'm here to help you remember and treasure the time we have.

“We would not change a thing about our wedding photos. Even more than beautiful photos, I knew I wanted a photographer that I felt confident would capture the most important moments of the day. Cassie did exactly that.”

"Cassie gave us the most personable and accommodating service. She listened to our desires and made our wedding day perfect by capturing it just the way we wanted. We cannot recommend her more highly, both professionally and personally."

"Cassie created an environment where I truly felt like I could be myself. There is no one else who could have captured the important moments so gracefully and beautifully like Cassie. I am forever thankful for the work that Cassie created and for the impact that she made on those memories."

“Cassie photographed our wedding and she was absolutely amazing. So personable and easygoing, she went with the flow of our day and made sure to get all the pictures we wanted. She was great to work with beforehand, helping us create a schedule for our day. And did I mention our fabulous pictures> She has such an artistic and beautiful style. I highly recommend her!”


“Cassie was the best vendor we have the pleasure of working with at our wedding. Calm, cool, collected, and always chic, she worked with our ambiguity and rushed timeline. And that's just her working style. Her eye for an image, her editing, her promptness of delivering the final product -- just book her if you're considering it.”


“I didn't really know what I wanted in a wedding photographer, but turns out that Cassie was better than anyone I could have imagined. She scouted out the greatest spots for our photos, she had a great sense of humor, and made the entire wedding day more enjoyable! She completed our photos ahead of schedule and we were blown away by how beautiful they were!”
