Why choose the CHP experience?


~the STUDIO~

We are a boutique studio. What this means for you, my valued client, is that I've taken the time to create a specialized session experience just for you. I am not a high volume studio and I want to keep it that way. This allows for more personalized attention for you, my client. From the moment you walk in for your complimentary pre-session consultation, your happiness and satisfaction is my number one priority.

The CHP Studio is located in Historic Downtown Brunswick.


~Exclusive Services~

Complimentary Consultation

I wholeheartedly believe that I have something unique to offer in our area. That is why I invite every prospective client to visit the studio before booking. I want to meet you and take the time to discover what it is you're looking for in a maternity, newborn, baby or family photographer.  I want you to have a chance to look through our beautiful product offerings and also get to know me so that we are like old friends on the day of your portrait session.

Professional Hair and Makeup (available as an add-on)

I have hand selected a hair and make-up artist for her professionalism, body of work and ability to gauge client's wishes and execute them perfectly.  She's also located conveniently *almost* next door to the studio!  CHP clients also receive an exclusive discount when booking her.  I highly recommend hair and makeup application for your maternity and family sessions as well as newborn and/or baby sessions - if you're feeling up to it.  It's nice to feel special and pampered, if even for just a day!

Studio Wardrobe

I hear it all the time - "I hate having to shop for clothing for my family for my session".  Selecting coordinating outfits for an entire family can be a daunting task, especially when you are expecting.  When you book a session with CHP, I make choosing a wardrobe super simple.  My style is beautifully simple.  I offer an ever-expanding wardrobe for Mamas, babies children that is carefully curated and has beautiful options from places such as Free People, Anthropologie and Rachel Pally, to name a few.  Clothing comes in beautiful neutral and pastel tones as well as rich textures and fabrics.  Each session comes with a complimentary wardrobe consultation where I spend the time to go over it with you to find the right looks for your session.  For Dads, I am available to shop for you or to make clothing suggestions from what Dad already has in his closet.


~The Products~

I believe in tangible artwork that tells your story.

I want my clients to walk away from their experience with the highest quality products to display proudly in their home.  Products that can be handed down and cherished for generations without the fear of digital media becoming superceeded.

While all your digital images are included in every collection, I believe the best way to ensure you can enjoy your images for years to come is to print them using archival quality materials.  That is why each of my collections offer both the edited digital images for safekeeping AND tangible pieces of art.

This is your story.

Let me be your storyteller,


About Me

candace hires photographer st simons island

You will usually always see me dressed for comfort - jeans and a tshirt are what make me happy!  Oh!  And sunglasses.  Always sunglasses.  Even on a rainy day, just up on my head.  I admit that I have a sunglasses problem.  I bet I own probably 15-18 pairs easily.  It's such a crazy thing, I know, but I can't help it.  It's just me.  On my tenth birthday, my mom was too busy lighting my birthday candles to notice me sneaking the Kodak out of her purse and proceeding to waste $20 worth of film taking pictures of my friends.  Needless to say, my composition skills have improved since then!.  On weekends you’ll find me snuggled up on the couch with any combination of my hubby, my cats, and my children catching up on the latest movies.
