"Best Pet Photographer in Chicago!"



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!


Why pose for family portraits when we can document you together, as a family? As a Chicago pet & family photographer, I capture all of the genuine moments that happen on your ordinary day. Bath time, snack time, nap time! We don’t have to line up together in a park and pose for the camera, let’s focus on capturing moments between you and your family in locations that are meaningful to you as a family.


Let’s go do something together! We can also shoot in my beautiful studio without distractions, you can focus on each other and the ones you love. When you look at your photos over your fireplace, or flip through your family album, your photographs will be even more special to you, since they show who you are, not just what you look like. Contact me for more information about my Chicago 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!"
