Hi, I am Cassandra

I am a film and digital family photographer based in Northern California.

As a mom and wife that is head over heels for her three little girls and husband, I am just not satisfied with a traditional portrait (the kind where everyone stands side by side and says "cheese") It is nice, but it doesn't make my heart melt or bring joy to my soul.  I want portraits that make me feel and remember today. Just minus the dirt and spit up stains from everyday life. I want it to be authentic, but also look beautiful.

So I come to your session as a mom with a deep longing within her to remember all the best moments of your family.

And I come as an artist with an eye that seeks to make everything look stunning. I might rearrange your living room or adjust someones hair or outfit.  I am not a fly on the wall coming to simply document. I direct and insert myself into your already beautiful love story to make it that much more stunning.

I can't wait to meet you and your family!


Why Film

I am a film and digital photographer. Most of the pictures you see here throughout my site are film and taken on a medium format film camera. I mainly shoot film because of the way it captures color and beautifully softens skin tones giving your images an elegant and timelessly artistic feel. What does that mean for you? The film from your session will be developed and available via an online gallery within two weeks of your session. All images are delivered to you as digital files ready for download and printing.
