YOUR ADVENTURES. YOUR SPECIAL MOMENTS. YOUR SWEETEST MEMORIES
We Hold Our Children's Hands For Only a Little While, We Hold Their Hearts Forever.
Children photography in Santa Cruz, the Bay Area, and the Santa Cruz Mountains. I capture their character either in the studio or on location. We run and play and giggle and laugh. Oh and do not forget to dance.
My style is traditional portrait and studio style, using lights and props. In the studio I can create unique and boutique style portraits or just a simple setup. I have a traveling studio and can come to you or I have a small studio setup for babies and small children within my home. Most of my family portraits are photographed outdoors. I am not just a natural light photographer. I believe you can create more to photographs than just photographing the scene as is. As a professional, I balance natural light and strobes, in order to make images more unique and bold.
Have an event? I also create portrait pop-ups and create stunning scenes designed specifically for your event. Check out my most recent work with Tutu School Scotts Valley Ballet events HERE.
"Candi took portraits of my daughter and I could not be more thrilled how beautiful they turned out!!" - Andrea O. 2017
"Candi did my maternity portraits with my daughter and I and they are my favorite images. She then did my son's newborn and cake smash milestone sessions and they were just as amazing as my maternity portraits" - Nicole G.
"I chose Candy Coated Photography because she has a visual art education background and would be able to professionally provide on-location lighting at the outdoor location for our 10th wedding anniversary Family Photo Session. Candi was great, she worked comfortably with our 3 children with different posing suggestions and was able to capture a dramatic, gorgeous sunset over the ocean as our family celebrated our anniversary. The photographs look stunning and we will treasure them for many decades of these precious moments in our life. I run my own photography studio, and have very high professional standards for photography of my own family, so I was pleasantly surprised to get such fabulous photographs from Candi!" - Alixandra M.
