Senior Photo Sessions
You have nearly 12 years of cookie-cutter ‘school photos’, but you’ve spent your entire school career becoming the person you are today. How many dance recitals, football games, band practices, soccer or baseball games have there been? Your senior pictures should reflect, in an artistic way, all you’ve accomplished in the past 12 years. You deserve senior photos that reflect the unique and amazing person that you’ve become, and it should be an experience that you never forget.
I have been photographing High School Senior Pictures on the beaches of Cape Cod for over 20 years. I have lots of experience helping girls and guys feel comfortable in front of the camera, and pose them so they look great and don’t feel awkward. I’ll make the entire process comfortable, easy and memorable.
Along with local high school seniors, many high school seniors from towns away from the beach, such as Hopkinton, Milford, and Taunton, come to Cape Cod for beach pictures. I have also photographed many high school seniors visiting Cape Cod on their summer vacation with their family, for truly unique senior pictures.
4 Easy Steps to Amazing Senior Pictures
1. Select Your Experience
Beach or not? How many photos do you need? Can’t decide? Let’s chat via phone, video, or in person at my home office in Wareham. I’ll help you decide on the perfect senior photo session for you, and learn more about your senior, the location, what to wear, and any special requests, as well as get an idea of what you want to do with your photos. When we’re done you’ll feel confident and prepared for your photo session.
2. The Photo Shoot
We’ll meet at the beach, park, or whatever location we decide upon. Together we’ll make a ‘game plan’ for the photo shoot, such as what outfit to wear in what part of the location, how to incorporate any props you brought, and any ideas you have. I’ll take it from there! All you need is a good attitude and to be up for anything!
3. View & Order Appointment
About a week later, you’ll come to my home office (or online via Zoom) to view your photos and place your order. Using state-of-the-art software and a large-screen TV, I’ll help you select your favorite photos for the yearbook, for photo albums, and products to display in your home.
Actually holding the photos in your hands and deciding where to display them, and sharing with friends and relatives, is what it’s all about. You can pick up your order, or I can ship it to you. I will also take care of sending the yearbook photo to the senior’s school yearbook advisor for you.
I have worked with Cassandra twice for my girls’ Senior photos. She took amazing pictures and made the entire “photoshoot” experience fun for both my daughters and I. She knew how to make them feel at ease and less self-conscious, and had amazing suggestions for poses. The viewing experience was awesome as well. Cassandra presented the pictures in video form, set to the perfect music compliment. Needless to say, I cried and had a most difficult time picking out THE photo because they all were amazing. Behind the lens Cassandra takes pride in her work and truly cares about capturing the spirit and beauty of each person she photographs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Choose the High School Senior Portrait Experience that’s right for you
Sunrise/Sunset Photo Session
Most popular! The ultimate beach photo session experience. A sunset photo shoot (or sunrise!) on your favorite beach within 25 miles of the Cape Cod canal (further locations may incur an additional fee). You can change outfits as many times as you want. If you love to have your picture taken, or want to incorporate lots of different outfits and props (such as sports apparel, or a pet) this session is for you! We’ll schedule your shoot about 1 hour before sunset (or 1/2 hour before sunrise) for the best and most flattering light (and less-crowded beaches). I schedule just one Sunrise/Sunset session per day, so you get my full attention! This is the session you want for lots of photos and products (albums are super popular!) because you’re going to have so many photos to choose from and you’re going to love and want them ALL! Creation fee is $200 to reserve your date, which does not include prints, products, or digital files (Purchased separately).
Mini Beach Session
2nd Most Popular Session – 1/2 hour at the beach with one outfit change. Your session will take place about 1/2 to 1 hour before sunset at a beach that I choose. This beach senior portrait experience is designed for smaller budgets and smaller senior picture needs. Creation fee is $125 to reserve your date, and does not include prints, products, or digital files (purchased separately).
Backyard Photo Session
Your own home is the ultimate location for senior pictures. I guarantee I'll find stunning locations in even the most modest of yards. Easy to change outfits, incorporate pets, and your senior will feel most comfortable in their own space. This is a one hour session; travel fee may be required for locations more than 25 miles from Wareham, MA.

Cassandra is a wonderful photographer. She did my daughter’s senior yearbook pictures at a lovely beach at the Cape. We were all so happy with the session at the beach and the variety and quality of pictures that she took. We shopped around quite a bit and Cassandra’s prices were very reasonable. I have recommended her to other families who have been equally thrilled with her work. I highly recommend Cassandra’s Photography!
Walk in the Park
Not a beach person? That’s OK! There’s plenty of alternatives! You can schedule a 1 hour session with 3 outfit changes at a local park or one of my ‘secret’ locations. This session is usually scheduled between 8AM and 4PM. Most popular locations are public parks in Bourne and Plymouth, but I do have some cool “alternative” places in the Wareham area, too. Creation fee is $150 to reserve your date, and does not include prints, products, or digital files (purchased separately).
Mini Walk in the Park
Perhaps you just want to change into 1 different outfit, and don’t need a lot of photos, so a 1/2 hour photo session is all you need. Plus you can choose one of my ‘secret’ locations. Creation fee is $85 to reserve your date, and does not include prints, products, or digital files (purchased separately).
