Welcome Friend, I'm so glad you're here. I'm Candice!

Let me capture the beauty I get to see when we're together.

Welcome to my little corner of the world where creativity meets my love for serving. My husband, Maxwell, and I moved here from NYC a few years ago and we have fallen in love with Sarasota's warm-weather charm & being close to these white, quartzy beaches! I am a Mama of two, Ryder + Sunny, and they are my favorite littlest loves.

My goal is to serve you with portraits that you won't only post on your social media profiles, but with portraits that HEARTEN every wall in the place you call home.

let the memory-making begin!
FUN Fact:

Besides smell, Portraits are the closest thing to evoking emotions from the past...transporting you back in time in just a split second.

More about your photographer

  1. I am a REALLY positive person, always looking at everything optimistically. I always want my people to leave me feeling more special, more loved, and more encouraged than before our time together.
  2. I drink hot coffee at home + iced-coffee while out-and-about, usually while running errands with my two little babes! Gimme all the caffeinated goodness, because we ALL know parents need it to be at their prime, am I right?
  3. I'm a hugger. It's just...who I am. :)
  4. I live for quality relationships over quantity -- Quality time is my love language. I'd take a one-on-one hangout sesh with my best friends over a large get-together any day.
  5. I lived in NYC a little over 10 years prior to moving to Sarasota, FL, modeling full-time for luxury brands such as Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Stella McCartney, + Ralph Lauren. I have that extra sense of what looks stunning in-camera.
  6. I am a thrill-seeker! Find me on a roller-coaster, white-water rafting trip, + seeking out the nearest place to paraglide (although paragliding in South Africa takes the cake)! Did I mention I love to travel?
  7. I love seeing the world through the eyes of a child!!! You guys, kids are my jam...all pure and you never have to wonder where you stand with them.

childlike wonder stirs so much love up in my soul.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”


What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?

Let's have a chat before your delivery date, Mama!!! Together we will discuss timeline as to what works best with your schedule (typically between 10-21 days post delivery). I will come to your home within the discussed timeline and we will capture all the little details your heart desires!

What kind of photographer are you?

I am a Lifestyle Photographer with a passion for capturing children, expectant mothers, babies, and the families who love them to pieces. I have ALWAYS felt compelled to create emotional art. They will always tell the story that is written on your heart.

Where will our session be held?

I am a natural light photographer, so getting that pretty sunset glowy light is a must. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session, making the most of this gorgeous area we get to call home. Sessions are held 1-1.5 hours before sunset to capture that warm, golden light. Newborn Sessions will be held in the comfort of your own home or a natural light studio if you choose (only available M-F).

How should we dress for our family session?

After you book our session, I will send you a Style Guide, upon request, which has suggested color palettes that look best with the current season! Earthy tones are always flattering and classic any time of the year. Gold, rusts, sage green, earthy blues, and creams are ideal!

How many pictures will we receive?

You will get to choose 20 of your absolute FAVORITE portraits from the proofing gallery I will deliver to you. You will receive your final edited gallery in 1-2 weeks. (Maximum of 3 weeks during peak/holiday season).

*Petite Personality Portraits include 5 hand-edited fine art portraits of your choice in Black and White. *Option to upgrade to color after gallery is delivered.

When and how will I receive my photo gallery?

You will receive your gallery within 7-14 days after your session date (2-3 weeks during the holidays) in a private online gallery.

Do you offer mini-sessions?

I do offer Petite Personality Portrait sessions for children! I have a limited few Session Dates I release throughout the year specifically for these! They go fast so I recommend following my social media for all updates. They are 10 minutes long and showcase your child's serious, wild, and silly selves!

I currently don't offer family mini sessions. They do not allow me time to capture your real and authentic connections, like I can in a full session.

How do I book a session with you?

You can e-mail me directly at sunnyandcrewphoto@gmail.com
