Candace's Profile

About

We are a quiet, laid back sort that believes in love, passion, empathy, and endurance. We believe in Family. We believe in Faith. We believe we can change the world, one child at a time. We believe in the simple things. We believe in hard work, strength, determination. We believe in wide open spaces. We believe in mountain air. We believe in the sound of "peeper" frogs bringing in Spring. We believe in beautiful mountain views, the lovely sounds and smells of the woods. We believe in sitting on the porch barefoot on breezy humid summer nights with a tall glass of iced tea and watching the lightning bugs hovering atop the grass and illuminating the lanky limbs of the trees, hearing a dog bark in the distance, a child's innocent giggle from across the way, the smell of fresh cut grass, and coyote's starting to howl at twilight.

It is both a privilege and a blessing to grow up in the South.

There's a magnificent simpleness in the mountains that is hard to describe to one who hasn't grown up surrounded by their comforting shadows and looming strength.

I am a mama of two wonderfully fantastical teenage boys - 16 and 17. I've been a mama since I graduated high school. I have devoted my entire life to my boys, as it should be. At 33 years old, I finally met and fell in love with my Prince Charming - the one all of us gals kiss a lot of toads in search of. I was lucky enough to marry him in 2015 and now I get to call him my husband and best friend. We drove out to Montana from Virginia for our honeymoon. Fell in love with Montana, but fell in deeper love with Wyoming. (You realllly have to like your road trip partner if you're going on a 4000+ mile round trip road trip, whee!) I love adventure, and spontaneous road trips.

I have been passionate about taking photos since I was a kid. Black and white 35mm film was my favorite. I've always wanted a dark room and have always wanted to learn how to develop my own pictures. Most photos displayed in my shop were taken while walking, believe it or not. Some have had to be straightened in photo editing software, haha, but organic and authentic to the moment as much as possible. I am an ex-govt employee, as is my husband. We own a garage and towing service in our hometown, and now that I am no longer a gov't employee bound to employer's demands and time schedules, I've decided it's finally time to pursue my ultimate passion and maybe supplement our income, if possible. My sons also have the photography bug. They take absolutely fantastic pictures - some are better than mama's, haha I will showcase their photos, as well. If purchased, the proceeds will be given to whichever lucky son snapped the photo :)

By purchasing prints from this shop, like most others here on Etsy, you are supporting a small family owned business - which I believe is the backbone of our great country. We appreciate you taking the time to read, look, purchase, and share, if you feel it is worthy of being shared :)

Come join us in the mountains - from wherever you may be.

We treat everyone with the infamous Southern friendliness that makes you feel like family.
