Candy Kennedy is a South African born, New York based lifestyle photographer.

She started her career as a fashion photographer, being very down to earth she realized that she had a great connection with capturing people experiencing life’s beautiful moments

Candy has an incredible amount of energy, (must be all that coffee she drinks) and an overall excitement in the way she approaches projects. Her images are filled with movement and emotion with a bit of grit and character… just like her personality.

She puts her heart into every project, big or small and always over delivers on expectations.

She has recently launched an ongoing project #TheHomeSpace . It has given her the opportunity to get up close and personal with people in their homes.

“It’s very intimate to experience someone else’s life at home, if only for a couple hours. It is very enlightening. Every house, every person is different so every shoot holds a new found excitement. “

“I am raising my son Cash, with my husband in Manhattan. I often use Cash for personal projects, and have learnt how to photograph kids in a natural, real way that brings out the dream-like adventures that is the everyday in a kid’s life. I am patient and playful, and that is my most important asset while photographing kids.”

Since moving to New York, Candy has had the opportunity to work as a director on commercials for a few amazing clients. She works hand in hand with her partner Mark Sherman who is the DP on all her commercials; check out their work on www.TheKennedys.NYC.
