About Candice

Hello my name is Candice McLean and I am a lifestyle portrait photographer.

I'm located in Woodbridge VA and photograph in the Northern VA area and as far south as Richmond VA. I love to explore, and I am available for travel.

My approach to portraiture is photojournalistic as I focus on story telling and capturing real life interactions with a creative twist. I'm a Gemini and love being around others so meeting new people and working with them to tell a visual story is a true passion and a great honor.

When I'm not behind the camera, I'm with the people I love the most – my family. I am the wife to an active duty Marine and a mother to four amazing children who inspire me daily.

My formal background includes studying painting, illustration, graphic design and photography at VCU, Mira Costa College, Palomar College and Laguna College of Art & Design. I graduated from LCAD with a BFA in Graphic Design.
