I am so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your family! I believe in capturing true authentic moments and telling your story the best way I can.

I believe in bold vibrant images that you will print and hang on your walls to admire for many years to come. I want you to feel the cheerfulness and excitement that we had during the session, many years later. 

With my ten years of photographing experience, we will plan the photo session of your dreams filled with laughs and love. Be sure to scroll below for my pricing information as well as the photography process. I can't wait to welcome you to the Cassema Photography family!

The first step to booking a session with me is to drop me a note 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 *cue happy dance*, 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 session retainer.

Next, we will talk about what you are picturing in a location. I have an arsenal of locations up my sleeve all over San Diego that I can show you for your choosing.

Now comes the most difficult part of all for any family, dressing everyone. But don't worry, I am here for you! I will send you my style guide to help you select colors that work well together. If you are booking a maternity session, I will send you a link to view my 70+ maternity gowns for you to select from. You are always welcome to send me photos of outfits for my opinion as well. I am here to help.

A few days before your session, we will connect to make sure the weather looks good. I will give you tips on where to park and meet me. We'll exchange numbers and finalize our meeting location. If coming to my studio, I will send over my studio infomation.

The day is done and now you can BREATHE knowing we captured pure magic together. Fully edited digitals from our session are typically delivered within about two weeks of the shoot date via an online gallery. This gallery will allow you to share your favorites with family, order prints and even download images to share on social media. Your gallery will remain active for three weeks.

Perfect for those who value legacy. These heirloom albums are a great way to house a large number of images in a beautiful way. Leave them on display as coffee table books or protect them with a legacy box. 

Albums

My beautiful prints are the perfect way to fill your walls with memories.  I offer several different sizes.


Prints & Wall Art

Easy to hang and easy to change out. Canvases are one of my favorite ways to decorate a space. They also work great on little easels placed around the home. 

Canvases

I am a big believe that images need to be preserved. With technology constantly changing, it is even more important to have images that you can physically hold in your hand. 

Think about all the things you still have on random floppy disks or CDs that you can't access. With how quickly everything is progressing, who knows if Instagram or Facebook of digital galleries will be a thing in the future.

But tangible products you can touch, and smell and hug?
Those will still be there. Just like all the beautiful portraits you saw of your grandparents growing up. Or the portraits you may have still on the walls of your home.

I have carefully hand selected and tested some of the best professional print companies in the world to give my clients the absolute best products on the market.

wall art and albums

A: As soon as possible! I usually book out months in advance. I can sometimes accommodate last minute bookings but not always. Don't hesitate to reach out to see my current availability.

Q: WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK WITH YOU?

A: A session retainer holds your spot on my calendar so that nobody else can take that slot.  The retainer is non refundable. 

Q: What's a retainer?

A: Absolutely! I have over 70 maternity gowns available from XXS- plus size.

Q: Do you have maternity gowns?

A: Ideally, while you are still pregnant. I only take a few newborns a month and like to have time to create and organize beautiful setups in themes that you love. When we book your newborn session, it holds a newborn slot for you and we set the official date once baby makes their arrival.

Q: When should i book my newborn session?

A: Yes, you are welcome to print the images on your own. However, I am not responsible for any print quality not ordered through me directly. While cheap prints sound great in theory, you just invested into so much a beautiful session where I spent hours creating your art. I have my computer monitor calibrated to the labs I use so that colors and texture print exactly as I intended them too. This is one of the many reasons I offer prints to my clients.

Q: can i print the images on my own?
