A little more about the photographer behind the lens!
Hi, I’m Candace of CDM Photography! Some people ask why I chose CDM Photography as my business name, and it is actually just my initials, Candace D. Macdonald = CDM
I am a Wedding, Family, and Children's photographer from beautiful Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.
I invite you to explore my work and to learn more about me.
I am a Wife, and Mother to two, and moved back to beautiful Cape Breton Island just 3 year ago after living away for a while.
My photography journey began after my first visit to Banff, Alberta. There was so much beauty surrounding me and I wanted to capture as much as I could! I wanted to remember the beauty of such an amazing place for years to come.
After that trip to Banff, I started taking photography courses, and learning the fundamentals about my camera. I played around with some landscape photography for a little while, but once I became a mother I honestly just realized just how fast children grow up and wanted to capture these milestones and learned pretty quickly that to me, people are SO much more interesting and exciting to photograph!
When my daughter was born, I started buying studio lighting and playing around with all of it, along with taking a few more courses and learning from youtube and other online resources. Though I do have a small studio space and use studio lighting, I definitely prefer natural light photography.
Not too long after moving home to Cape Breton, I decided it was time to see where my photography would take me and opened up this little business. I am so thankful to all of my clients who trust me with capturing a little glimpse of their lives.
I love to try to capture personalities in my images.. I love to capture authentic laughter and the little in between moments.
Take a moment, look around and contact me directly to learn more.
