The unique chain of events that have taken place in the past eighteen months has made many reluctant to move forward with their anticipated photo shoots. Social distancing, mask mandates, and fear of becoming ill have delayed plans for many families to have their portraits made. The circumstances we are all faced with have made capturing your family memories on film challenging to say the least. This is especially the case for clients having to schedule and be cognizant of photographers who only offer “on location” photoshoot capabilities. Many of these venues are public places that offer no structure or safety procedures. In essence, models go into their session with many unknowns and the photographer has no control over the surroundings. Below are some of the most frequent questions we are asked in preparation for upcoming sessions:
How crowded will the location be?
Should I wear a mask?
Will the studio be clean?
Will social distancing be implemented?
Can my family have privacy during their session?
Is parking going to be an issue?
Do your schedule back-to-back sessions in the studio?
Will my family have to sit in the waiting room before the session begins?
Do you offer makeup and hair services as an additional option for my session?
The best things in life are all about having choices! Unlike other professional photographers in the Charlotte area, I-Candee Photography offers both on-location and in-studio sessions. We give you and your family the choice of an off-site photoshoot in the location of your choice or the option of having your family portraits shot in a controlled environment.
I-Candee Photography makes it easy and most of all, safe, to capture your family memories through pictures. We have a full-service private studio where families, just like yours, can feel confident in knowing all reluctance and fear can be set aside. You and your family can feel relaxed and feeling your best during your family photo session.
We schedule your family photo session at a time that is most convenient for your party. We also take extra precautions to not overbook sessions. Say goodbye to crowded waiting areas and standing-room-only studio conditions because we care about your comfort and safety.
Owner, Candee Seabolt, cleans and sanitizes the studio personally before and after each session, so you can rest easy in knowing you are in safe surroundings. I-Candee cares about you and your family, and it shows!
Our studio is located in beautiful historic Matthews, NC, just minutes from downtown. Convenient whether you are traveling from Charlotte, Lake Norman, Huntersville, and even the Fort Mill/Indian land/Lancaster area. Our facility has plenty of parking for your family and our studio is situated in a quiet, natural setting with little to no traffic.
Any seasoned photographer knows that one of the best tips for taking amazing portraits is to help the model(s) relax. One of the trickiest parts of doing a family portrait photoshoot has nothing to do with operating the camera or controlling the lighting, it’s getting the clients to relax. Taking it easy, and enjoying yourself during your session is just as important as making sure all the technical aspects of the moment are mastered. I-Candee strives to not only make your portraits memorable, but also the portrait event.
Your privacy is assured at our studio, as well as your comfort. Our photographer will discuss the “feel” you have in mind, and suggest the best poses to achieve the look you want. The photographer will offer you something cold (or warm) when you arrive. We also have a myriad of backdrops and props to choose from to help you achieve the perfect portraits for your family. Your photographer can even schedule one of our in-house hair and/or makeup artists in order to help you achieve a picture-perfect look.
I-Candee knows that we are doing more than just taking pictures – much more! You are inviting us to record a point in your family’s lives that you will hold dear for decades to come. When you order a cup of coffee, or stop by the deli to grab a sandwich it doesn’t matter who you are, what hobbies you enjoy, what professional goals you have, or whether you woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. You hand them some cash, get what you ordered, and go about your day. However, taking portraits is almost the polar opposite because everything matters. As your professional family and lifestyle photographer, we aim to capture the essence of the people we are working with. Getting to know you and your family is a key element of making this happen.
As your local, premier family and lifestyle photographer I specialize in on-location, in-studio, and lifestyle-oriented photography. Throughout my career, my biggest inspiration has been helping families preserve the important moments of life. I make sure each photo session is a fun and stress-free experience.
