My Story

I’m passionate about many things; but most importantly, I believe in living life with intention. First, I am a child of God. Without my faith, I would not be here. I’ve been saved many times by believing in Him, and my favorite verse is…

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13

I am married to Chip, a United States Marine and we’ve been married twenty five years. I am truly blessed to have such a strong man by my side. He encourages and supports my creative and business endeavors. Together we have four amazing children – Roan, Tate, Connor and Carys. I am in awe of how quickly my children are growing into young adults with their own aspirations and creative dreams. They inspire me daily with their actions, words and choices.

One of my favorite quotes is by the amazing Maya Angelou, and I live my life with these words in mind…

“My mission in life is not merely to survive; but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

When I’m not behind the camera, I love everything about creating a home from interior design to making the kitchen come alive with homemade meals. We’ve moved many times with my husband’s career, and with each move, it has been my goal to create a stylish and comfortable home for our family while sticking to a budget. We collect and display things we love! This is so important as your home is your story. Our home is quite eclectic as I like to collect antiques, thrift store and flea market finds and display photographs and art from our travels.

I’d love to work with you! I enjoy styling and photographing people, food and home decor. Please see my portfolio at www.candicemcleanphotography.com and you can contact me at candicemcleanphoto@gmail.com.

I’m not a health specialist, but I love everything about wellness and living a healthy, intentional lifestyle. With wellness a priority, I became a Young Living Independent Distributor over two years ago. It’s my goal and passion to share Young Living products to help educate and inspire others to live a healthier lifestyle. I’d love to help you! Feel free to learn more here –  www.goo.gl/Yx9KaA
