“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind

After the birth of my second child, my passion for photography and videography was rekindled, wanting to document my children as they were quickly growing up. I strive to create art that captures real life, emotions, and feelings- the things you'll look back on years from now with a smile. Whether it's the birth of your child, a Sunday morning family routine, or the homecoming of a loved one, you'll treasure these moments forever.

I specialize in Birth, Newborn and Family photographs and films but I am available for other sessions as well.


So nice to see you here!

My name is Candice, and I'm a serial storyteller. I began photographing my own children with a desire to have beautiful, everyday memories to cherish for years to come. More about me HERE

My clients love seeing their REAL, imperfectly-perfect lives captured honestly and artistically. No say cheese, no matching outfits, and hopefully no bribery to cooperate. I watch and document emotions and interactions, and you end up with beautiful photographs that tell YOUR story, not the story of a hot summer evening where you had to bribe the kids and cried on the way home because no one wanted to cooperate.

No stress, husband approved sessions can take place in your home, or at a meaningful location.

What the heck is Documentary Photogarphy (aka Story-telling Photography) Anyways??

Documentary photography is exactly what it sounds like - a way to document a season of your life or event. Very similar to photojournalism, documentary photography focuses on genuine emotions, connections, and what is happening. The best part? You aren't stuck behind a camera. As an artist, I step back and look at what is going on and find ways to creatively capture it. You'll be so surprised at how much you LOVE seeing your family, birth, or event told as a story. 

What story do you want to tell?
