I know first-hand what a professional photo shoot can do for someone, having grown up being bullied, not feeling beautiful until after I had a shoot in my late 20s. I believe that EVERY woman should feel beautiful at least once in her life, so I created Beautiful You Studios. Helping women feel beautiful through portraits is what I believe God put me on this earth to do, and I would absolutely LOVE to have the honor of photographing beautiful YOU!!
Hey there! I'm Candace, the photographer behind Beautiful You Studios. I’ve loved pouring over fashion magazines since I was a little girl & once I reached my teens, I decided to figure out how to create them. In 2000 I started college as a graphic design major, then eventually switched to communications & worked in advertising once I graduated. Eventually, I figured I might have an eye for photography so around 2011, I purchased a camera off Craigslist on a whim, taught myself how to use it, & the rest is history!
If you're looking for a photographer who not only understands the specific needs of photographing women of all shapes, sizes & colors, but who will also show you exactly how to pose all the way down to your fingertips, you've come to the right place! When I was a model, I taught modeling classes professionally. I also used to be a fashion photographer & shot many gorgeous spreads for magazines. Now, my passion is bringing this same experience to everyday women like you! Whether you want photos to display throughout your home, in your marketing materials, or you're looking for a gift for someone special, I'm here to photograph beautiful YOU.
At Beautiful You Studios, the focus is on making women feel more beautiful than ever. I love that moment when you stop thinking about the camera and your true beauty shines through, and I'm dedicated to creating that magical experience for you. You will love looking back on the art I create for you for the rest of your life!
