I'm Candice! I am the artist behind Old Country Road Photography.
I often get asked how I got my start in photography, and truthfully it just sort of happened.
I guess you can say it found me.
I became a Mother and my focus of preserving memories became very important to me.
I wanted to have photographs to document my children's journey.
I started shooting landscapes, and then quickly was introduced into portraiture.
I still love going out and shooting beautiful scenery, however portrait work is where my heart is.
I feel blessed that I wake up every day and get to call this my job.
I have always been super creative and visual , but honestly could have never dreamed this would be my calling.
The connection with people, and their stories is where it all starts for me.
From day 1, I wanted to photograph real moments. I wanted my work to speak for itself.
I wanted people to look at my images and feel something.
Connection is huge for me. I don't just want to take pretty pictures, I want give you an experience.
I love photography for many reasons, but by far my favourite is just the way it makes you look at everything a little deeper.
I love that a photograph can spark an instant emotion! Taking you back in time and making you feel that moment all over again.
Nothing else in this world has that ability.
My approach is simple. I believe in honest and meaningful photographs. In an industry that is overflowing, I strive to be authentic.
I am married to a wonderful man who makes me laugh and supports my dreams, and together we are raising our three beautiful children.
I love long walks with my dogs, and quiet time with my cats.
I enjoy road trip adventures, and a good cup of coffee.
As a Family we spend allot of time in the back country, surrounded by mountains and nature. That is our paradise.
I am sentimental beyond words, love rustic farmhouse style, and dream of owning a vintage motorhome one day.
I love to garden, birdwatch and bake.
The perfect day? Relaxing on my deck with my Husband watching our children play.
I love living in a place where nature is not far from my backdoor.
I am on a beautiful journey and I look forward to meeting you one day!
