2015 Senior Team!

2015-03-13_0030Oh have mercy…where do I even begin?!

I’d like to introduce you all to my amazing 2015 Senior Team…they rock my socks off. You’ve seen a few of them, and I have several more to blog…but it’s time to get this video out, I can’t keep these photos hidden anymore!

This was my second year doing a Senior Program and I have loved every second of it! Bonus…I think they all had a pretty great time too. ;) Double bonus, we aren’t done yet!! We still have another shoot planned to wrap up the year…can’t wait for that!

This year, I did things a little different in a few ways…some good, some harder, but I am learning each year what works best and how to build such a fun program for everyone involved. The hardest part about this year…I did interviews. Yep. I had to meet all the juniors that applied before…and it was even more difficult to choose than I expected. So much so that I called in my 2014 crew to help with the decision. We had such a talented, smart, sweet, impressive (large) group of applicants and I almost chucked all my ideas out the window just so I could choose them all. It was so hard to narrow them down, and while I wish I could have picked everyone, I am confident that this group was meant to be. Everyone meshed and connected so well, and in the end, they’ve bonded…and that means more to me than anything.

Enough jabbering…you know how I have a tendency to do that. On to the video…then some photos (not all, I have way too many to share)…then a little info for all upcoming seniors!!! Yep, it’s time to start on the next crew!!

So without further ado…here is the Cassidy Dawn Senior Team of 2015!!! (*tip, click that little ‘HD’ button below ;)

And now for some images!

Sooo, current Juniors, look like a good time? Well, it’s your turn!! Applications for this year’s team is now live!

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!

The School Sessions – Let’s do this!

The School SessionsA fellow photographer and online friend, Jamie Delanie and her husband Randy, had an inspired idea to something amazing. In one day, with photographers all over the world will raise $200,000 to build a school in Mellier, Haiti. Jamie        reached out to me to get involved and I didn’t even blink before I was signing up! What a wonderful thing they are doing…I am honored to be involved!

So here’s where I need you. I need at least 1 session on April 12th. 100% of your session fee ($200 – full) or ($100 – mini) will be donated to The School Sessions to help build this school for these amazing kids. Please, please consider booking this weekend…isn’t it such a wonderful event to be involved in?!

I have decided to open up that entire weekend and book as many sessions as we can…so, if you were hoping for a spring session, that’s a perfect weekend :)  ECCASchool_Small05

Think you missed your chance…you didn’t!

It’s true, September & October are fully booked and have been for sometime. Sorry, I told you they book up fast! However, for those families that still want a shoot for that Christmas card or the Senior that wants a shoot before the snow hits…you are in luck! We still have a handful of November shoots open. Now, I know what you are thinking…the trees are bare, it’s cold, and it’s ugly…well, you are wrong! Just wanted to pop on and let you know that November is actually one of my favorite months to shoot in! It’s cool (sometimes chilly…which I like) and we get a great early evening light. Plus, it’s easier to get in because everyone wanted October ;) Also, depending on the year, there are trees with those golden leaves still hanging on.

Here’s a handful of images from last November…so if they make you realize you can still get that fall shoot you wanted, contact me soon…cause they will go quick ;)

**November shoots need to be scheduled for 3pm on weekdays to ensure we have plenty of light. Only 1 weekend date left for that month!2014-09-08_0011

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 :)
