"I can't say enough good things about Candice and her wonderful team. From booking our session, to the photoshoot, to our museum-quality artwork, our expectations were constantly exceeded! Everything about our experience was fantastic....
When we got our final product, we were blown away. The portraits are phenomenal and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives. You will not find a better photographer in Chicago!
"Candice really nailed it!
We have 2 pups and they don't always listen the way they're supposed to. She was super patient and captured some amazing moments with them. She has so much talent and so much passion for what she does! I can't recommend her enough!"
WOW.. such an amazing experience and piece of art for our home. We brought our dog in for some family photos and they turned out better than we could have ever expected! Candice was a pleasure to work with and we feel she truly captured our lives in her work. Very professional and most of all FUN to go through the whole process. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking to capture this moment of their lives.
"Hi! I’m Candice, and I’m a Chicago-based photojournalist by training and visual storyteller at heart.
I honestly can’t remember not using a camera to tell a story. I started photographing at age four with a toy camera and at age six I started using my father's old Minolta SLR. Basically, I’ve been a photo geek my whole life!
Photographing families and their fur babies is a natural extension of my photojournalism background, including 10 years as a photojournalist for the Chicago Tribune.
I love documenting real, candid moments that reflect the true expression and personality of a person and/or their fur babies.
Oh! And don't be fooled by the beautiful portraits you see above... While, we will create portrait masterpieces worthy of hanging on your family gallery wall.... rest assured my sessions are never stuffy or too serious!
Be prepared to laugh as you watch me dance, make funny noises, and bend in all kinds of pretzel poses to capture the most perfect shots during the session!
