A little About Candice….


After years of photographing seniors, Candice exudes confidence, creativity, & compassion. Our clients have told us again and again that these qualities make for a completely fun and relaxing session!


Confidence means she knows how to help teens look their best, even when they're nervous at first.


Creativity means she can find the best light, knows the best poses, and makes any location look fabulous.


Compassion has developed from her own life experiences - and she is ready to extend that to you!

Step 01. Answer your questions


Avoid the mistakes that other families have made! I have summarized my 15 years of experience into one helpful page to make this process simple and stress free. Feel free to print this helpful pdf!

Step 02. Choose your location


Choose a location that speaks to you! West Michigan offers so many gorgeous natural backdrops - nature trails, beaches, parks, or urban landscapes. Email us for our favorite spots if you need some inspiration! (We travel within one hour of Fennville.)

Step 03. pick your package


We offer three simple packages that all include some digital images and a print credit, which can go toward wallet prints, wall displays, or even grad cards in our online store.


Know that your investment is safe. We stand by our work and promise you will love your images or we will re-shoot for free.

I absolutely love surrounding myself with people whose gifts outshine my own. I am joined by 5 strong women who I admire and depend on - and specializing in this way, we each have the joy of doing the work that we are most gifted for & passionate about.


All West Michigan sessions are photographed by Candice. After many years of photographing families Candice exudes confidence, patience, & creativity! She has learned compassion from her own life experiences, and is ready to extend that to you at every level. You can trust she will help you enjoy a relaxed, fun session!
