The first step to booking a session with me is to message me here on my contact tab of my website. I check my e-mail daily and respond pretty quickly. If you don't hear back from me, please be sure to check your spam folder.
Via e-mail or phone (whatever you prefer), we will get to know one another and talk about your photography needs. I will answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other. 


Once you've decided to book me for your session, the real excitement begins.

First, we will choose a date together that coordinates with both of our schedules. If you are booking a newborn session, we will use baby's due date for now. To reserve your session, I will have you fill out my contract and pay your creative fee.

Then we will go over locations (if doing an outdoor session) or set design and prop setup (if doing a studio session).

One thing I love about Cassie vs other photographers is that her work is vibrant and SO diverse. You'll see people of color, mixed families, and LGBTQIA families photographed by her often. As a black man with an interracial family, it was important to me to find someone with a diverse portfolio who knew how to properly expose the camera for my family. Our experience with her was a dream. Cassie is nothing short of incredible and an asset to the community of San Diego. She is kind, caring, and treats you like family. A true master of her trade."

"Cassandra is truly one of a kind! Her professionalism and expertise are unmatched and she only uses some of the best photography gear in the business. She made my wife feel very comfortable and even incorporated a few small requests that we had when we began the session. I myself am a photographer in San Diego, and there is no one else I would trust capturing me or my family! We have now had well over ten photo shoots with her including our son's newborn and milestones. She's THE BEST!"

After a few months of diligently searching for a photographer to take first birthday photos, I stumbled upon Cassema Photography. She was incredible!! So easy to book with, easy to work with. Beautiful, clean studio!!! She was so sweet to my little one year old and to my fiancé and myself for family photos. She let my little babe make a mess during the cake smash and had the most beautiful background set up!!! She got the most perfect pictures!!! I have so many hanging up around the house and sent to relatives who adore them!! The quality is unmatched!!!! If you want a photographer who is truly a gem to work with I highly recommend Cassema Photography!!! The photos truly do speak for themselves!!
