“My experience getting new headshots was wonderful! You were the perfect blend of professional and personable. Working with me at length to make sure I had the shots I needed with different looks and moods for my website and my portfolio. My agent and all my friends have been complimenting me on my new shots. I couldn’t be happier with how they all turned out, thanks!”

We really appreciate the time you gave our daughter Amber and the work you put into her photo shoot. We know it’s not easy to work with young kids. You have an amazing personality and I think you should definitely continue to work with young actors. We highly recommend you!”

“Candace did my head shots for my acting website and held my hand throughout the entire process. She was transparent with pricing, agenda and timing of when I would get the finished product. She coached me and made me feel comfortable before and during the shoot. Her work is fantastic and she is such a lovely person. I highly recommend going to her for head shots!”

Actress Juliana Bergstrom

“We brought our son to get his headshots done by Candace — what an incredible experience! She was warm, professional and incredibly creative; made for a relaxing shoot with incredible photos to reflect it. Aiden left the shoot telling us how much fun he had during the session and  we were really pleased with the variety of looks/ poses/ expressions in the gallery afterwards. It makes it really hard to choose our favorites, because they were all fabulous. Thank you again!”

From the moment I walked in Candace made me feel comfortable, cracked some jokes and really helped me settle in. She provided a great atmosphere in her studio. Be it the genuine conversations, great directions, and acting advice she gave from her experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional headshots, she is amazing!!”

“Candace was a joy to work with. My children really took to her and she really knew how to pull out their little personalities into the shots. She always responded within a timely fashion and was quick to put any of this Mama’s concerns to rest. Let’s not forget the finished products! Stunning perfection! Myself and our agent were so happy with the outcome. Candace really knows the details that go into a headshot. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks!”
