CASSIDY CHAPPELL

So a bit about myself.  I love my job, I’m fortunate enough to have found my passion and get to build my career doing what I love. I’m a mum too, so like all mums there are no days off and sometimes its bloody hard work, but I love my little tribe, they inspire me everyday.
I’ve run my business for nearly 8 years now and studied at Photography Studies College part time for 4 years while working full time in the legal industry. I graduated my commercial major in 2015, had my baby and quit my day time job to concentrate on being a mum and practicing my purpose.
I have a 4 year old daughter Cody and 2 year old son Mack, my little muses as you will see in My Family gallery - Cody was born in my final year of study which made it an obvious choice for subject matter. Here is where I discovered my passion and the joy and confidence I felt documenting people and telling stories.
I gravitated toward documentary style images, capturing everyday emotive images, because at the end of the day we all have our own unique stories to tell and images create windows to your memories.  I found love, joy, humour, pain and innocence all could be recorded through the lens of my camera and there grew my love for raw, personal moments and memories.
I found true emotion couldn’t be posed in the studio it had to be lived in real life, captured in the moment.
I run my family and in home newborn sessions in an intimate chilled out way. I’m your very own personal paparazzi following you around grabbing those moments and creating memories, without you wanting to stab me with an umbrella - We're just a bunch of mates hanging out for a day in the life of you.
My Weddings are similar in that it’s so important you are comfortable with your photographer and you can be yourself on your special day. I include an in depth planning session and we work together to create your wedding story full of emotion and raw moments and capture images you love.  My job is to make your wedding day easier knowing I’m there to document all the personal moment for you to look back on and remember for the rest of your life.
I like to run my business and personal branding shoots in the same fashion.  You have a story to tell, unique to you.  How better to elicit emotion in your audience than to show them real and relatable imagery of you doing and being your business. I love to help people passionate about what they do, be able to communicate their business by connecting with their customers
