Well hello! Thanks for visiting my website and if you are pregnant...congratulations! What an amazing and exciting time of your life. Have a look around in here and feel free to flick me a message if you have any questions. But first, here's just a wee bit about me, Cassie.
I'm a mum of 3 bigger kids (17, 14 and 9) and wife to a very supportive hubby Shane. Stumbling across birth photography by chance on Facebook in 2012, it was like light bulb flicked on! I love Birth and I love Photography and from that moment I knew just what I needed to be.
I have now photographed over 190 births, making me the most experienced birth photographer in New Zealand! I've been present for all different kinds of births...home, hospital, birth centre, unassisted, natural breech, twins, cesarean sections, even a baby born in a car!
For me personally, being a birth photographer is not only about capturing all the emotion, the incredible moments and the enormous joy surrounding the arrival of a new life, but to also create social change by showing women worldwide what birth can look like, that birth is normal, that it is empowering and beautiful. Positive images of birth can only have a positive influence on society.
I feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of the most important day in a child's life, their birth day. And to be able to capture those amazing moments for the parents and their family to look back over for years to come, really is such an honour.
I would love to chat with you about being your photographer, please send me a message or give me a call :)
