Hi, I'm Candace and I'm the woman behind the lens here at PhotoStory Collections. Thank you so much for stopping by my space! I am a contemporary portrait photographer based in Brooklyn, NY.

Most days you can catch me playing tourist in my hometown of New York City with a coffee in one hand, camera in the other, and my dinosaur loving son in tow on the hunt for the best slice of pizza.

I believe a portrait is a tangible gift for generations to love for years to come and the most ideal way to capture your life's story every step of the way. One day your children will look for images of you, what will they find? I'm here to help you create a beautiful legacy of portraits that tells the story of you, chapter by chapter.



All sessions are tailored to suit your needs and tell your story in the best light. My style is magazine styled portraits for the everyday man, woman, child, and family curated to make you feel your very best. We will design a photoshoot complete with professional makeup, wardrobe consultation, styled set, and gallery reveal session in the location of your choice. 

Whether you are building your business branding or celebrating milestone, gathering the family together for an heirloom portrait we will work together to create a session that captures your current chapter in a way you will cherish forever. I invite you to a personal session with me, you will love the way you look and feel.


I am a natural light photographer specializing in contemporary portraits. Don't wait for the "perfect" time to have your photos taken, the best time to love on each other is today! All portrait sessions include professional grade matted prints in a keepsake folio box giving you the choice to immediately frame and display in your home or store in a chic coffee table display along with the digital image. Event coverage is also a passion of mine and I enjoy capturing all the details and special moments you can enjoy long after the cake is cut!


Client Reviews

Hear from some of my recent clients about their experience:

Candace is an artist. She was able to capture the true essence of my child. Now the shoot itself took over an hour because babies aren’t always cooperative. But you would not know that by the pictures she was able to capture. The photos brought tears to everyone’s eyes. My little one looked like a model. Its safe to say that Candace is now the family photographer for my whole family.
— Crystal Schloss-Allen
My portraits were unequivocally the most beautiful photos taken of me in the last 20 years!
— Lady Chassagne
She showed up on very short notice to the hospital after I give birth and was able to capture the first moments my children met beautifully! She was a perfect balance of caring, considerate, warm and professional. Her end product was amazing...
— Dominique Parris
