2015 Senior Team!!

Cassidy Dawn Senior TeamI’m so excited, it’s one of my favorite times of the year…it’s time to start talking about our big Senior Shoot!!
I can’t wait to meet the seniors for the 2015 Team. I’ve become close with my 2014 Reps, and I know they have become friends with each other…which is one of the most exciting parts of the entire experience for me!
This year instead of a “Rep Shoot”, we will have the Cassidy Dawn Senior Team…and I am crazy pumped about it.
Instead of being a rep, you’ll be a model! No stressing about referrals & how many people you can give info out to. I want to take out all of the work and make it nothing but fun! Because seriously, that’s what your senior year should be about (well, that and studying..don’t forget to study too ;) If you are going to tell your friends you love Cassidy Dawn Photography, we want you to because it’s true…not because we are paying you to do so ;)
If chosen, you will make friends from different schools, be a part of a full-day editorial photo shoot with complete hair, makeup, wardrobe consultation & yummy food…because, what would a full day shoot be without yummy food! You will also receive discounts for your own personal senior session with Cassidy Dawn & be involved in a few fun activities throughout the year.
Requirements (because we have to have a few)
– must be a 2015 senior
– must book your personal senior session with Cassidy Dawn
– have fun & make friends…
Yep! That simple. It’s pure fun & we are so excited to get started!

It is an application process & we will have interviews too…but don’t let that stop you from applying! Can’t wait to meet all of you!! The application will go live this Friday…so get ready :)

Here’s a look at the fun we had last year…just wait until you see what I have in store for this year :)

Aaron & Jackie – The Wedding!!

In September, one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met were married…and I was honored to be their photographer.

When I first met Jackie, her excitement for her wedding was so contagious. I could tell she had her day planned out for years…maybe since she was a little girl. Anyone would get excited to hear her talk about her ideas. The day was just perfect…of course! Here’s a little look into their special day.        chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography

Always one of my favorite moments of the day! chillicothe ohio wedding photography  chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photographychillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography

Jackie & Aaron didn’t want to see each other before the wedding…but they also didn’t want to break up the flow of the ceremony into the reception…so solution…after the reception! It was so perfect. They had planned on a short reception & it was early enough in the day that we were able to do their portraits together after everything was over. There was no stress & the light was perfect…I was a happy photographer!chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography  chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photographychillicothe ohio wedding photography

Announcement time!!

for blog

(artwork by the talented Newspaper Balloon)

We’ve been keeping a secret since this Fall and I thought it might be time to let it out…Drummond Baby #2 will be here this July!
We are thrilled and can’t wait for our family to grow…and see Hallie become a big sister.
With that being said…there are a few other important things to mention. A July baby isn’t the best for a wedding & senior photographer (but I’ve never been one to plan my family around my business!)…as a maternity leave will be smack dab in the middle of my 2nd busiest season…but no worries! I’ve got a plan ;)

I’ve been saying that summer dates will be booking fast…and yes, they will! My estimated maternity leave will be late June to the end of August…so all you seniors wanting a summer session…we need to get that booked, asap!! They will need to be early June if you want them while you are out of school. Seriously, it’s not too late to call…I’ve already been booking! I will not have another photographer during that time…all clients of Cassidy Dawn Photography, will be photographed by Cassidy Dawn ;)

There will be a few changes in both the Senior division & the Wedding division of the business…no worries, families & portraits will be pretty similar, with only a few minor adjustments.

I’ve put a lot of thought into this decision, and while it’s hard to make, it’s necessary. I love, love, love my weddings…however, my heart is Senior Photography and that’s where my focus will be.  We will be very selective in booking weddings for the rest of 2014. Due to the fact that so many seniors choose the summer because they can avoid conflicts with sports & after school activities, I’ve decided to try to keep several weekends available in the Fall for senior shoots. Thus, making a very limited amount of weddings possible.

Another change that is taking place is a revamp of how we do our shoots…the session fee* will now include a pre-consult meeting to discuss everything from location, to outfits, to products & collections..everything. Now, going into the shoot…we will already know each other a bit &  you (and your parents) will understand the entire process.  We will also have a ordering meeting for every client. This is so helpful for you to really see the products & we can chat about what image is best for what.  I’ve heard time and time again from parents walking out of our ordering meeting, “you made that so easy, I don’t know why I was so stressed”. That’s exactly what we want to hear. No stress allowed, this is such a fun experience for everyone…and I won’t let you worry about a thing! *the session fee will remain the same at $200

I’ve been adjusting the whole Senior Session Experience and will be launching the new pricing & information next week. So if you are or have a 2015 senior, feel free to email now & I will get that out to you as soon as it’s ready!

INFORMATION ON SENIOR REPS! I know this has been a big question for a lot of you 2015 seniors…and it should be! This is such a fun event we do and I can’t wait to get started. The entire program will be changed this year…for the BETTER! So if you’ve heard raves from my Reps this year…imagine what I have in store for the Class of 2015 ;) This information will also be launched next week…so keep an eye out!

That’s enough reading for now…I’ll be back on tomorrow with another session to share.

I am so grateful for all of you & honored to be your photographer in such important events & times in your life. Thank your for allowing me to live my dream.

xoxo, Cassidy
