Your life is full of moments.

You and your family laughing together


I’m Candice C. Cusic. I am a photojournalist by training and visual storyteller at heart. I specialize in Moment-Driven Photography™ and believe moments make the best memories!


Candice was named The Best Pet Photographer in Illinois and her fun style is highly sought after from those who want the absolute best. The best moments of their fur child; the smiles and head tilts captured that touch your heart; and the best bond in the world (yours) brought to life in photographs printed on museum-quality Italian artwork for your home.


Your family deserves the best! Contact me for more information about my Chicago pet and family photography!

"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!"
