About Candy Kennedy

Commercial Advertising Photographer based in New York.

I’m a South African born photographer raised in a little town called Cape Town on the southern tip of Africa. Yes, Africa, and I can assure you i never came across lions and elephants on the way to school :D

5 years ago I made the big move to New York with my family, a place that I now call home.

My images are alive and packed with expression and emotion. I relate to my subjects really well and am always able to capture beautiful  real moments with them. As my dad says if you gonna do something, make sure you’re the best at it, and that is what i live by. I stay professional and humble, and this work etiquette is appreciated by all that I work with

When I do get time off I love to explore new neighborhoods and discover new cool coffee shops around the city. I live uptown in Harlem with my son and my husband. My son Cash,  has taught me a lot about kids, and through him I have learnt how to photograph them in a natural, real way that brings out each and everyone of their personality’s  and quirks. I am patient and down to earth and that is my most important assets while photographing kids.
