Candace Castor Photography
I am a Family, Couple, Birth and Lifestyle Newborn Photographer. My goal is to provide you with images that are natural, warm, and beautiful to decorate your home and share with your family. I love being there to document you and your partner adding to your family to share with those who cannot be there. I truly enjoy creating beautiful art with your family/couple/maternity portraits while including the gorgeous island we live on. I also love creating personal connections and unique to you life-style newborn images of your new little addition. I do this by doing the session in your home to include all your personal touches and what you have made a home to really making the images one of a kind. I look forward to hearing your ideas and bringing them to life with you!
