Charleston, SC Photo Session: Koelbl Family

Love this family’s contagious smiles!  Wilson felt the ocean waves on his feet for the first time.  I think he’s a bit uncertain!


Thank you for following! If you’d like to book your own photo session with me feel free to email at info@melissagriffinphotography.com.

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Stein Family

We had to work around some nasty weather to get this session done but we made it happen!  I had a blast on this fun and playful session – and those handsome boys stole the show!

Charleston, SC Beach Photo Session

Don’t be jealous that we can still wear shorts at the beach in mid-October!  This family doesn’t get to see each other very often so it’s a privilege to take these photos of their time together on Isle of Palms.  Lindsay might have used some pina coladas to bribe the adults for photos.  And usually the bribing is only needed for the kiddos! 😉

Charleston Photo Session: Kretman Family

This was such a special shoot and a first for me!  Krista emailed me to schedule a photo session on Folly Beach.  At one point during the planning she found out she was pregnant so they decided to wait and tell Izzie at our session to get her reaction!  I was so excited for her to find out!  She’d been wanting a little brother or sister 🙂
The secret is out!…

Email me to schedule your own family shoot!  I’d love to work with you and your family!

Charleston Photo Session: Gentile Family

This extended family came from all over the world (literally, from locations in the US and New Zealand!) to spend some time together at the beach.  Watching the cousins play was so fun and I absolutely loved their colors!  I think combining different neutrals is so pretty, especially on the beach, so this is a personal favorite of mine – a great example of what to wear on your family photo shoot.

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 Maternity Photo Session: Isle of Palms

How absolutely beautiful is this mama-to-be?  We got a perfect evening out at 25th Ave on Isle of Palms.  I love so much about this session – the colors, the light, this couple’s silliness and the fact that pretty soon I get to share photos of their sweet girl!

Beach shoots = WIND!!
