Amazing! Best word to describe Dayle. She has a natural way with kids where she can make them so comfortable they don't even know they are getting their pictures taken. She has captured so many special moments for us over the last 6 years. Her pictures make me so happy. Can't wait till next time!
Dayle chose a beautiful low country setting and brought just the right props for a wonderful Christmas photo shoot. She captured my daughter and two grandchildren, 2 & 4, with the most natural smiles and expressions. The whole experience was such fun and we had so many fantastic photos that it made choosing our favorites incredibly difficult. We would never use anyone else - we love Smarty Pants Photography!
Smarty Pants Photography is the best! Thank you Dayle for making the photoshoot with our son, Liam such a fun event. We all had a blast! There are so many great photos that it is hard to decide on which to have printed.
Thank you Dayle for taking such AMAZING photographs of our 30th anniversary/wedding renewal in Hilton Head. The photos were breathtaking. You captured our personalities in every picture. You were so fun to work with, thank you for the wonderful memories in your pictures.
In life you need decent wine, good friends, great family, and a FABULOUS photographer. Thank you, Dayle Thomas!
We love Smarty Pants Photography and Dayle!! We use her for our family pictures as well as our business needs. She is simply the best. Dayle does a fantastic job at capturing the raw candid emotion instead of taking traditional super posed pictures. Our kids love having her take their pictures because they know she is going to bring some fun cool props for them to play with while she snaps pictures. You can't go wrong when you chose Dayle!

I couldn’t imagine using anyone else to capture the moment when I proposed to my fiancee. Dayle captured the day beautifully and we will be thanking her every time we look at those pictures.
It was nice to be able to capture our daughter in her comfort zone of our home. The pictures are priceless, she really captured her personality.
Her professionalism is impeccable and she’s fun and wonderful with kids! Everyone who knows Dayle can agree with me! Great pictures, great creativity!
Dayle photographed our wedding and did an amazing job capturing the emotions of the day. Dayle’s style of photographing captures true expressions that make the images so special and allowed us to spend our wedding day enjoying time with all who attended instead of leaving the party to pose for shots for hours.

Dayle has an amazing gift of capturing the most beautiful pictures of my family, especially my children. She has taken our family pictures for several years, and her work never ceases to amaze me.

Great work Dayle, you capture so much personality with your photography.
I LOVE all the pictures of Sawyer. You were wonderful with her. I loved how you just let her do her thing and worked with what she was doing. I am going to have a hard time picking out my favorite shots.
At a five star restaurant, the waiters manage to seamlessly keep your water glass full, all of which is indiscernible to the patron. Dayle, like a pro, captures moments and moods unbeknownst to her subjects-the sign of a true pro.

I just wanted to thank Dayle for the excellent job that she did with our wedding pictures. We have so many to choose from and each one is great, I love them all! I would choose her for any pictures when we are in the area in the future.
This was our first time working with Smarty Pants Photography. My daughter felt very comfortable and had lots of fun, very professional and beautiful pictures.
Not only did Dayle capture my daughter's true essence but the Sparks Session was an experience my daughter and her friends will not forget! This session is exactly what they need at this age when they are questioning their beauty and finding out who they are. I can't recall the last time my daughter was THIS excited about something that was ‘all about her’. Thanks to Dayle for allowing her to have this moment.
Love, love, love Dayle and Smarty Pants Photography! Her warmth and ease with children, combined with her expertise behind the camera, makes for beautiful, authentic, unique (and fun!) photographs each and every time. She magically gets my two girls (one camera-shy, the other a total ham) laughing, smiling, and cooperating, and then weaves their expressions into a story of images that capture the true spirit of who they each are. She is amazing, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
