Why hello, hey, hi from Texas! I'm Casey, owner, photographer and creator behind everything RAW. I'm living the dream with my husband and four babes right here in New Braunfels.
A UTSA alumnus, I graduated with a degree in Marketing + Advertising minoring in English. I wanted to be just like Mel Gibson in that amazing movie, "What Women Want." I yearned to be the visionary behind commercials, design logos for big wig companies and own my very own branding firm. After college, I got a job at a Texas-wide construction company and served as Marketing Manager for the Austin branch....because LIFE happens and opportunities don't necessarily arrive when we expect them to. I dabbled in freelance design and branding work for many years thereafter, and rest assured, it's still something I am crazy passionate about. You can find some of my work under my Portfolio.
I leaped into photography years ago when my son, Harper, came into this world with such tenacity. I wanted to capture every single one of his truly genuine moments : belly laughter, crocodile tears, messy bedhead, sticky fingers, all of it. Dusk and dawn came and went for several years and I put down the camera. Not long after my youngest daughter was born, a fire lit in my soul to capture people's very raw and very real moments in your true elements: love, laughter, playfulness, tears, happiness, all of it. I'll give you all your here and now.
So here I am, capturing all of you. The raw, the real you, and everything that pours from your heart and soul.
