let's get to know each other
My name is Cassandra Barbara aka Cassie
Hi I am Cassie, the heart behind the lens and your go-to maternity, newborn, and family photographer in Bergen County, NJ. I am a mom to three incredible kids, Maddox, Ellie, and Cole, and a wife to my husband, Derek. We live in the wonderful town of Ramsey, NJ and first and foremost I understand the essence of family and the fleeting beauty of life.
I graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2006 with Bachelor Degrees in Business Management and Public Relations, and later pursued my passion for children and education, earning my Master’s in Childhood Education from William Paterson University. I went on to teach first and second grade in Paterson and River Edge for 8 years.
I have always been the designated family photographer, but it was the birth of my first son in 2013 that ignited the spark to turn my hobby into a passionate career. Photography, for me, is not just about capturing images; it's about weaving the stories of my clients, fostering genuine relationships, and freezing moments that resonate with emotion and timelessness.
Balancing the chaos of life with kids' sports and being a dedicated PTO mom, photography serves as my creative haven and personal outlook. It inspires me to find beauty in the everyday, providing a unique perspective that shines through in every photograph. For me, it's not just a career; it's a journey of connection, inspiration, and preserving the extraordinary moments that make life truly remarkable.
Life is all about people, moments & emotions that we want to hold on to.
Love Notes From My Clients
Rosemarie & Rob
Cassie has been capturing my family since before my son was born at my baby shower, and over 11 years later my walls are filled with the most beautiful photographs from her! Cassie is patient and caring, and she has become part of our family and is always around to capture our biggest milestones and life events. From event photography, to our outdoor, indoor, holiday and fresh 48 sessions, our experience is always organic, fun, and comfortable.
Through the camera, we freeze the fleeting moments of childhood, preserving the magic that slips away too quickly. In a world that never stops moving, photography allows us to hit pause and savor the joy, innocence, and growth that define our children's journey.
