About Me

About header image Poppie Studios 2

hey there!

I'm Emily Chandler

I'm a sunshine-loving furmom who’s passionate about capturing memories on film, creating big brands for small businesses, wedding stationery for creative couples, and helping fellow artists launch their biz!

My business has grown and evolved as I myself have too: the photography, the designs, the coaching… it all started as creative outlets when I was still in high-school in a relatively small town in Indiana. When I look back, so many things lead me to where I am today. But it wasn’t until I started investing my time by networking with fellow creatives that my biz really took off though.

After graduating with dual-degrees (one in fine art film photography, the other in advertising art) I put it out into the universe that Florida was where my heart belongs. I worked for companies large and small as an in-house graphic designer for three years after college before accepting another position as a graphic designer in Tallahassee, Florida.

So my dog Bailee and I loaded up my station wagon, crammed everything else into a uHaul and made the move to the Sunshine State. I realized then that if I could basically start-over in a new town that I could absolutely be a successful entrepreneur too.

Fast forward to today, I’m married to my hunky husband Tim, Bailee was forced to become a big sister when we adopted Frank, our three-legged pit bull, and my business has become the vision I had so many years ago. And it’s still growing - into my new and improved dreams!

Most days you’ll find my in my boho home office, surrounded by all the plants I’m trying to keep alive, with my dogs at my feet. I like a little coffee with my creamer and can’t get enough avocado toast for breakfast. As an Enneagram 9 and ENFJ, I thrive on helping others know their worth and succeed. Whether you’re a nervous bride on your wedding day, or a fellow small biz owner trying to make their mark in this world, I believe in you and want to give you a big hug. And mostly likely will if/when we meet!

So if I can be the one who captures your beauty in a way that makes you feel worthy on your wedding day, or create a logo that perfectly captures your brand, or have a coaching session with you as you launch your biz… then, my heart is full and my mind is happy.

I’m a capital-city Florida photographer, graphic designer and educator with big-city dreams. Passionate about rescue dogs, holistic health and indoor plants. I’ve been on the rise since 1986.
