Meet Your Photographer
It’s been a while since I introduced myself, my name is Cassondre and I’m the owner here at CMP. You can call me Cassondre, Cass, Cassie, Cassie Mae - or any incorrect pronunciation of my full name and I’ll still answer to it!
I was born and raised in the beautiful Hudson Valley and I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. When I saw this first photo, it immediately reminded me of a favorite photo from when I was 4.
I was always outside as a kid. I grew up exploring the woods, climbing trees, playing in rivers, catching bugs and frogs and being fearless! I had a favorite tree I would climb up and with a canvas bag strapped to my back and once up there I would color and read for hours. I’ve always been an introvert, so being outside just surround by nature was a dream and it let my creativity soar.
It was a childhood that I wish every kid was lucky enough to have experienced and it developed a love of nature in me that has really influenced my personal photography style now.
I often find myself at shoots hiking, climbing over rocks and in the mud and brush, going out of my way to get the perfect shot - and I love it so much!
Some days it is so still crazy to me that I am lucky enough to say that I actually have my dream job, but it’s something I am endlessly grateful for.
I’d like to think that I have made my 4 year old self proud, and that makes me so happy. 🌼
