In the past we have hired our interns by season, but this year we decided that it would be more efficient for us to hire both a spring and fall intern in the same round of interviews. We had so many wonderful applicants and felt confident that we could choose two great interns from one pool, instead of doing another call and round of interviews in the summer for our fall internship. With that being said, we hired Cassie at the beginning of this year, and she (and us) have been waiting many months to be together in the studio! Now that the time is finally here, we are so excited for y’all to get to know her! Take it away Cassie!

What do you love about photography?
Storytelling— I believe our lives are best spent celebrating and cherishing our unique story. I love the way photography captures the sweet moments, the everyday, the big milestones, and tells our beautiful stories.

Jesus. His love and grace and mercy.
What is your favorite food?
My dad is Italian, and I will always crave his homemade spaghetti and meatballs.

I drink tea at home, and order coffee if we are out.
What are you grateful for right now?
