Happy Clients!

​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome! Located in beautiful Painesville Township, Ohio. I love to shoot a variety of portraits, including families, seniors, engagements and small, intimate weddings. My style is fun, creative, relaxed and honest. My goal is to capture all those meaningful moments and true personalities.  


In addition to portrait sessions, I also feature a fine art photography collection. My work has been presented at The Cleveland Print Room, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Cleveland Photo Fest, TOMO, Michael Stefan, Stella's Art Gallery, Cain Park Arts Festival, The University of Arizona and Painesville Art in the Park. 

About Me: I attended school at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where I earned a BFA in Visual Communication and Studio Art. I enjoy using Canon products

Candy took amazing portraits of my daughter for her Senior Photos. She captured her personality in all of them. Candy made both of us feel so comfortable, like we have known her for years. It was so much fun watching my daughter laugh with her and making her senior year special. I highly recommend Candy for any occasion!!!

She has photographed many members of my family and never fails to deliver the best photos ever! She is nothing short of amazing!"

"Candy is not only creative, and an amazing artist, she also genuinely loves people, and brings out the best in them. My family, especially my children, have had many opportunities over the years to spend time with Candy, having pictures taken, but more importantly, having fun. She captures their beauty, their moods, and their personalities. The kiddos are only 9 & 10 years old, but we already know that Candy will be shooting many more family occasions for us, as well as their Senior Portraits and weddings!!!!"

Ally A. — 
"Candy really took the time to sit with me and my husband to make sure she got every photo of our oh so special day! She really went above and beyond and got some amazing pictures that we will cherish forever. We will definitely be going back to her in the future for any other photo needs! If you want a truly artistic photographer Candy is your girl!! She made our wedding one that we will be able to remember forever!"

"AMAZING! She did a wonderful job capturing the happiest day of my life."
