more about me

I am here to capture your emotions as I document your family in their true, authentic selves. As you browse my past work, you'll see that I love to photograph at sunny, adventurous sites. I hand edit every photograph to ensure those colors are just as bold in the photographs as they were in nature.

No matter your adventure, when you book with me, I will capture your real laughs while you have fun celebrating your love. I specialize in lifestyle photography, as it allows your emotions to shine. While lifestyle photography is less posed that traditional portrait photography, don't worry I am here to help make you feel comfortable behind the camera and direct you on light poses!

Are you engaged? about to become a mother? want to capture your families laughter? OR WANT AN INTIMATE BOUDOIR SESSION TO EXPRESS YOUR SELF LOVE?

The experience

Brittney H.

"Absolutely had a blast shooting family photos. Casey did an amazing job not only posing us but was so patient with our daughter. I have been recommending her to everyone I show our photos too! Thank you so much for capturing these memories"

Christen W.

Casey is so sweet and fun to work with! She made me feel so comfortable and the pictures turned out amazing!! Such a fun experience all around and well worth the money. Could not recommend her more!

Danielle J.

"Casey is such an amazing photographer! She was so great at making me feel comfortable and striking conversations while photographing my baby boy. My baby was too young to set up by himself in a tub for a milk bath shoot and she was so patient and creative with finding a way to help him sit up. The pictures turned out better than I could have imagined!"

Heather M.

"If you want a photographer that will be fun and make you feel super comfortable, Casey is the one! She gives direction where needed and takes such natural photos. Highly recommend!"

Ceara L.

"Casey was absolutely wonderful to work with! Great with my boys and my pictures are exactly how I imagined! 10/10 would recommend to ANYONE!"
