Darlin’ Deals Review & Giveaway ~ Cassema Photography Photo Shoot!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but to me a picture is priceless. It is the only way to truly freeze a moment in time. Photos capture a memory of special events, people, and journeys of life. I am currently on one of the most precious journeys of my life, my second pregnancy, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity for an amazing photographer to capture images of this special time.

I set up an appointment to have my Maternity Photos taken by Cassie, from Cassema Photography, an on location natural light photographer. She specializes in family photography, engagement photos, maternity, boudoir, bridal portraits and children. Not only does she have beautiful reference photos of her previous photo sessions available on her website, but she also has an array of affordable packages to suit your needs. She currently serves the north San Diego County and Santa Clarita Valley areas.

When scheduling my appointment Cassie was very friendly and thorough with explaining the process of how the Maternity session would go. We chose a beautiful park near my home to take the photos which would allow for a variety of  natural backdrops and gorgeous outdoor lighting. Upon arriving the day of my photos, my usually outgoing son decided he wanted to be shy. This worried me because I had planned on having my husband and son included in many of the photos. This was not a concern or issue for Cassie, prior to becoming a Photographer she was a Pediatric Nurse and used to spend her day easing the fears of worried children. Immediately Cassie’s child-friendly demeanor broke the shy exterior of my son and within minutes he was holding her hand as we walked to the first area to begin taking photographs. Throughout the session Cassie offered unique suggestions for poses and was also receptive to hearing my ideas too (which I loved!) She catered to my son’s needs throughout the shoot.

I was beyond thrilled with the experience of the Photo Shoot and words can’t even describe my elation upon seeing the finished collection of images from my Maternity Shoot. I will be forever grateful to Cassema Photography for capturing this meaningful time for my growing family.
