Your life is full of moments.

You and your family laughing together


Hello there! My name is Candice C. Cusic, and I'm a visual storyteller and photojournalist with a passion for capturing and preserving precious moments. My specialty is Moment-Driven Photography™, where I focus on capturing the essence of a moment to create lasting memories that you will cherish forever.

I'm proud to have been named The Best Pet Photographer in Illinois, and I'm known for my fun and engaging style that captures the unique personalities of your furry friends. My photographs are designed to touch your heart and bring out the best in your pet, creating a lasting bond that you will treasure forever.


I believe that your family deserves the very best, which is why I offer both pet and family photography services in Chicago. Whether you're looking to capture the special moments with your loved ones or want to showcase your furry friend in all their glory, I can help bring your vision to life.


All of my photographs are printed on museum-quality Italian artwork, ensuring that your memories will last a lifetime. So why wait? Contact me today to learn more about how I can help you create stunning, one-of-a-kind photographs that you will cherish for years to come.







"I can't say enough good things about Candice and her wonderful team. From booking our session, to the photo shoot, to our museum-quality artwork, our expectations were constantly exceeded! Everything about our experience was fantastic. The studio is warm and welcoming. The team is easy to work with and professional. Candice is such a fabulous talent. She directed our shoot and made us—and our fuzzy puppy!—feel comfortable and confident. When it came to selecting our photos and artwork, she was patient and gave us great advice. It really felt like a terrific collaboration to work with her.


When we got our final product, we were blown away. The portraits are phenomenal and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives. You will not find a better photographer in Chicago!"
