I always try to deliver images before the due date (within 14 days). If you have an urgent need for the photos, I do allow a “rush edit” for an additional rate. This will put you at the top of my priority list and guarantee delivery by your deadline!

Absolutely! Additional photos are $8 per image or $32 for every 5.

I generally do not exceed a 20 mile radius for portrait sessions. If you would like to shoot at a location that’s farther, I do allow the option to add a travel fee to cover the extra mileage and time spent driving.

The short answer is no. I prefer a natural editing style and don’t do heavy retouching. If you have a few blemishes or your child has scars, I’m happy to remove those in your photos, however, it is never my desire to alter the appearance of my clients. I want you to feel comfortable showing off who you are at this time in life, no matter what that looks like!

I’m happy to meet with you virtually via phone or video conference before our shoot to go over details, questions, etc! 

I have no plans to host mini sessions in the foreseeable future. Apologies for the inconvenience! 

I do have experience shooting events such as baby showers, birthday parties, bridal showers, company social gathers and retirement parties. Event photography ranges from $150 to $250 per hour. If you are interested in wedding event photography of any kind, please refer the the “weddings” page!

Love how much she pays attention to every detail! There is such a soft timeless look that we appreciate about her work!!!"


"Kandace has been a pleasure to work with and takes amazing photos. She is able to get everyone relaxed and comfortable during pictures. She truly takes the time to make sure you are getting the images you want. I will 100% use her again!"
