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…so 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.

What to Expect During Your Session

During our consultation, we will discuss your vision for your session. I will get an idea of your story, we will determine what looks will make you look your best and the wardrobe you want to be photographed in. We will talk about dates for your session once you pay your retainer fee and book your luxury hair and makeup appointment with my professional makeup artist. Samples of my wall portraits will also be available for you to see.

I will begin to create a style board for you and choose colors, research outfits and send you links to any possible looks that I do not carry in studio. We will also communicate during the month leading up to your session making sure we have everything we need to complete your look. You will receive an email pdf from me one week ahead detailing what to do as far as skin care, body care and self-care before your session.

The day of the shoot, you will come in rested and ready for a wonderful day. Feel free to bring a friend with you! This will be a time of laughs pampering and relaxation. I will also have refreshments here for you to enjoy. We will take our time, no rush! I will guide you each step of the way in a laid back atmosphere and we will create some of the most gorgeous images you have ever seen of you and/or your loved ones.

About two weeks after your session, we will schedule a time for you to come back and view your video with all your beautiful images. This is where you select what you love and place your order. It usually takes about a week for your portraits to be shipped. Some special orders will take two to three weeks.

I will never be able to thank Kandice enough for the beautiful portraits of our girls. She was so patient and calm from scheduling the session to the delivering of the portraits.

The location of her studio is easily accessible and very spacious. She had numerous different props and set changes to choose from. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting beautiful images that will last a lifetime.” -Tiffany
