A Photographer & Designer

Hello! My name is Candice. I’m s0 glad you are here!

I am a lifestyle photographer and designer residing in Northern Virginia with my husband and four children. I love to style and photograph people, food and home decor. My design and photography education began early following in the footsteps of my grandfather and father – both amazing self taught artists. I graduated from Laguna College of Art & Design with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. I’ve studied and practiced photography since high school and now offer stylized lifestyle sessions in Virginia, Maryland and DC.

We’ve moved often with my husband’s career and with each move, I’ve learned to create an aesthetic that is stylish and comfortable for our family while sticking to a budget. I hope to provide inspiration for you here on my blog through my images, design ideas and family stories.

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, exploring and eating my way through a city, entertaining family and friends, whipping up something in the kitchen, buying fresh veggies and fruits at roadside farmer’s markets and treasure hunting at flea markets, thrift stores and antique malls.

If you are interested in working with me, please send all inquiries to candicemcleanphoto@gmail.com and you can view my portfolio at www.candicemcleanphotography.com.
