My name is Emily, I am the person behind the camera at Candid Smiles Photography. I am here to guide you through all components of your session, and create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. I have been in the industry professionally for five years. My passion for photography started as a young teen and has developed into a wonderful business years later. I want to share a little bit about myself so you have an idea of who you will be working with. When I am not photographing, I am busy running around with my 3 wonderful children. Candid Smiles photography began in Bluffton, SC 5 years ago and in February of 2017 I have relocated it to Olive Branch, MS. I also travel frequently for work around the United States.




You can expect a boutique experience when working with me. My client's happiness is always my first priority. The first step to scheduling a session with me is having an in person or over the phone consultation where we will go over things such as what to wear, location choice, and products available for purchase. During the consultation we will set a time for your session and you will leave being prepared for and confident about your session. Approximately two weeks after your session we will have an in person purchasing session where you will get to see all of the professionally edited images from your session (approximately 30 for a portrait session) and purchase your wall art, albums, and prints. I hand deliver all products to my local clients and ship to all of my out of town clients. I love to add personal touches to all of my sessions to make them special.
