Prodigies in any field serve as fascinating case studies of talent and drive, and 19-year-old Cassoday Harder of Newton, Kansas is no exception. Cassoday Harder only began taking photographs just a few years ago and has quickly garnered attention for her candid, beautiful and melancholic style of shooting.

Looking through Cassoday Harder’s selected portfolio evokes a sense of longing, with many of her photographs highlighting beautiful young women in moments of solemn reflection or blissful relaxation. One of Cassoday Harder’s biggest skills as a shutterbug is her ability to rouse multiple (often conflicting) emotions in each snap, forcing the viewer to create a story or project their own feelings onto the subject.

Bigwigs are starting to take notice. Just last year, Cassoday Harder was featured on Vogue’s photoblog Photo Vogue. With a strong and assured portfolio in her back pocket and buzz already developing around her skills, Cassoday Harder’s future in commercial and fashion photography looks bright.
