I am Kandice, a professional portrait photographer and the owner of Beautiful Soul Portraits in Lexington, SC. I recently stepped out on a grand adventure and left my storefront studio at the Cinnamon Hill historic house to build a home right in the heart of Lexington with my sweet family. We built a new studio in our home just waiting for you to walk through its doors. If you love a good Farmhouse feel and a breath of fresh air, I invite you to join me for a consultation so we can plan your ideal portrait session.

I value family very much and that is a huge part of why I am so drawn to mother and child portraits. Being a mom of three children, I relate to and encourage other mothers. I have created a space for you where being yourself is encouraged. There are never enough hours in the day and no time at all for women to do for themselves. I offer a place of grace and flexibility for girl-time, cups of coffee, or a cup of tea so we can sit and talk. I know your life is rich with laundry, dishes, dirty precious hands and footprints but you are exhausted. Mothers need to be reminded that they are invaluable, loved and still gorgeous. Lets work together and design a one of a kind session for you and celebrate your beauty. You are priceless to your loved ones and they will look for images of you some day. Want them in your photos too? I would be delighted to have them in the studio too. Sweet little newborns are a favorite around here. After all, they are truly our greatest blessings. Mother and child sessions are some of my most requested ones.

Beautiful Soul Portraits is a studio where you can both relax and have a luxury experience. With fresh Eucalyptus and peonies on every surface, you can expect a sweet southern charm and elegance.

My artistic style

My artistic style has an ethereal light and airy feel. I will bring forward your emotion through subtle posing and guidance, usage of light and movement to create a stunning portrait.

Beautiful details are important to me so I combine this with a dream-like quality to create a one of kind style. My goal is to make my clients comfortable and confident during a session, it makes all the difference in creating beautiful shots.

I really love options so I offer my clients several types of sessions and I love shooting them all. 1. journalistic lifestyle feel with minimal posing. These are offered to families as Fresh 48 primarily and it's all about you and your family doing life and having an amazing time. 2. Posed in studio with lots of wardrobe options, hair and makeup for the women, looking gorgeous, lots of wraps for babies etc. and 3. Personal Branding Headshots where we fully customize the feel of your business through you, your style, and how you want to be viewed in your business or social media presence. Simple headshots are also done here.

Newborn sessions are offered two different ways. In studio full sessions OR Fresh 48 Lifestyle. During full sessions in studio, I use a lot of earthy elements and neutral colors and whites in combination with natural light so that each portrait is clean, fresh and simple. The baby is always the focus. I will try to incorporate special requested items and props that you choose to bring. My goal is always for you to have an incredible experience creating photographs of you and/or your loved ones that will bring you joy for a lifetime.

If you choose the luxury hair and makeup session, you will be blown away by my professional artist who can make you look and feel stunning. We guarantee you beautiful images that you will want to keep and pass down for years to come.
