Charleston, SC Photo Session: Weldon Family

The Weldon crew is a fun bunch!  They’re a tight-knit family who live near each other in upstate SC and were vacationing together on IOP.  We all piled into their van they rented and drove around the Isle of Palms searching out a pretty spot to take some photos. I think we found it!  Their true colors show up in the last few images 🙂

Will you be visiting Charleston in the near future? Or are you a local?  Either way I’d love to chat with you about booking a photo session!  Visit my website or email me at info@melissagriffinphotography.com!

Charleston Photo Session: Issakainen Family

Most of my summer photo sessions are extended families out at the beach.  I always enjoy watching the cousins play and interact together.  When I was little my favorite week of the summer was when my cousins visited us in Syracuse!  I was so sad to see them go every time.  We took these images out by the Isle of Palms pier!  The mornings are perfect when there aren’t too many people out yet (and I may have edited some out of the background….)

Charleston Photo Session: Thomas Family

2018 has been off to a slow start with the crazy snow storm and a case of strep throat for me (boo).  But I’m back and wanted to show you some photos I took in the fall before heading to New York for Christmas.  You want snow??  You should have come home with me 🙂

Meet the Thomas family!  Such a genuine and joyful family.  And little Miss Eliya is just the sweetest thing!  This was my last shoot of 2017 and a great note to end on.

Whitacre Family Beach Session

I’ve worked for Susan for about 3 years now, assisting her with her business.  I jumped at the chance to photograph her extended family while they were all visiting Charleston.  I laughed a lot with this fun bunch!  Aren’t they a good lookin’ group?? 🙂

Charleston Photo Session: Robben Family

I usually have sessions with little ones that I’m chasing around but here’s a recent shoot I did with some big kids!  They were very good listeners and I didn’t have to chase them to get a good pic 🙂  I hadn’t been out to this place on Folly Beach in awhile, how beautiful are these trees on the beach!?

Charleston Photo Session: Raley Family

I enjoyed spending some time with the Raley family for our Isle of Palms photo shoot!  I can’t help but smile when I look through these fun, playful photos!  How stinkin’ cute are these kiddos?  And the LIGHT… sunset photos are the best 🙂
