Hi!  My name is Cassandra and I'm "who's behind the camera" of Inspired Studios:)  I've been married to my husband, Aaron,  since 2004 and we have 2 fiercely independent, smart, and funny daughters, Mara and Celia.  My love of photography started with the birth of my oldest, Mara, and I have been pursuing this passion ever since.  I have been lucky enough to make it my full time "job," though I hesitate to call it a "job" because I truly feel like it's my calling.  I feel so incredibly blessed to get to share in the most special moments of my client's lives.  I don't use the word "blessed" lightly.  That is truly how I feel each and every day to get to have this profession. If you follow me on Facebook, you'll hear me (unapologetically)  gush about my love for my "job" and clients often ;)  In a world filled with so many negative messages, I share my praise and thanksgiving as often as possible.  My friends are my clients, and my clients are my friends... and I love sharing about both!  


In 2013, I opened a newly renovated loft studio space in downtown Brazil, IN and I adore shooting there,  though I still enjoy shooting on-location too!  There's nothing better than an on-location sunset :)  


I have 2 assistants that work with me, as needed, for photo sessions and weddings.  I'm so lucky to have Kelsey and Ashley as part of my business (and my day-to-day life).  Kelsey is a mother of triplet girls (yes, triplets!!) and has a true love for photography herself.  She's a creative and skillful asset to my team, especially during newborn sessions.  Ashley is a mom of two and works full time at Indiana University.  Her weekday availability is limited, but Ashley is my "right hand" at weddings.  She's the coordinator of the days' photography events, making sure we stick to my planned schedule, and she jumps in to help with anything I (or the bride) may need.  Both Kelsey and Ashley are great at reading my mind and anticipating the needs of clients too.  I'm sure you will love them as much as I do!


Now for some random fun facts about me...I love fixing my girls' hair (even though they rarely let me!)   I'm obsessed with lattes, especially holiday flavored lattes.   I have had the same best friend since I was 2 years old.  I have the most amazing "tribe" of friends and family that a girl could ever ask for.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart.   My favorite thing to do is watch my girls dance...at home, at dance contests, in stores (haha!), dance recitals, etc.   Last but not least, I try to schedule a family photo session for my family (with another professional photographer) at least once a year so that I can enjoy being on the other side of the camera and making moments with my family too.  Every photo session, wether it's mine or yours, holds a special place in my heart.  


Now that you know a little about me, it's your turn!   I can't wait to meet you!

Hi! I’m Megan and I’m the second photographer “behind the camera” at Inspired Studios. Much like Cassandra’s story, I bought my first camera after the birth of my first child in 2010. I wanted my daughter’s life to be beautifully documented. I started photography with the intention of just capturing my family but eventually others started asking me to photograph their families as well. I started photographing weddings with Inspired Studios in the fall of 2019 and officially “joined the team” as the Eastern Indiana photographer for Inspired Studios, based out of Greenfield, IN in 2020. In addition to portrait photography, I am also the lead photographer at my church. I love capturing candid shots that show interaction / emotion rather than posed.


A bit about my family, I started dating my husband my senior year of high school. He proposed a year later, but instead of a traditional wedding, I surprised him with a beach wedding when he thought we were just going on vacation! We have two beautiful daughters, Jaleigh 10 and Briella 6... Jaleigh is my sassy one.. Briella is the complete opposite and is super sweet.


Here are some fun facts about me that will help you get to know me better: I loveee cats, but cats don’t love me (All 3 I’ve had escaped and ran away). I’m a German Shepherd mom! I love to read self-development books— But sometimes I get bored before finishing, so I’m usually reading like 3 at a time and I switch back and forth. I also have to read with a pen and highlighter in hand! I’m obsessed with Escape Rooms and do them every chance I get! I hate wearing tennis shoes and would prefer to be barefoot at all times. I LOVE the beach and warm weather — I’m always cold.


I can’t wait to meet you and learn some fun facts about you!


~Megan
