My name is Cassandra. Some call me Cassie. And Ever So Sweet Photography is a business I started in 2008. MySpace was still popular (I know, right?!?!) and I was on the bandwagon of people who changed their name to something cute like Sassy Cassie or song names. I chose the latter since I’d fallen in love with a song by a band called The Early November. Thus, Ever So Sweet became my MySpace profile name. As I started realizing this photography passion I had and posted photos on MySpace and Facebook, my friends came to know me as “Ever So Sweet” and when I struggled to come up with a name I could stick with for my business, I realized I already had one!
A little about me: I was born in Puerto Rico, raised in Tampa, FL and have lived in Hot Springs, AR since 2012. I absolutely love it here. My 14 year old cat, Leeloo, is named after the heroine in The Fifth Element. My favorite shows are The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. I love playing video games with my stud of a boyfriend. And most people would tell you I have an unhealthy addiction to Funko Pop characters. Yep, nerd status and proud of it.
I’m a high school technology and yearbook teacher and because of my awesome students, I’ve found that my photography is starting to lean more towards senior and family portraits, but I love it all. My approach to photography comes from a photojournalism background. I like real and candid moments and try not to direct too much, but I do make exceptions for the ones who need a little more help in front of the camera. Believe me, I get it, I’m one of those people!
Lastly, as John Mayer so aptly puts it: I’m just trying to fit the world inside a picture frame.
