2018 Wrap Up!

2018 was a big year for Melissa Griffin Photography!  Before I begin thinking about resolutions and goals for 2019 (I’m a type A and love January!) I wanted to look back on personal and professional highlights from the last 12 months.  I’m so grateful!

Me in my element leading a Photo 101 class in January.  I really enjoy teaching so more to come in 2019!  IMG_0832IMG_0831

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Kirby Family

Emily and I met in 2008, a year after I moved to Charleston.  We became quick friends and have been through lots together!  We were roomies for a few years, started our businesses around the same time and it’s been a joy to watch her and Martin raise sweet Camille!  I mean come onnnnn…. just look at that face.  She turns me into a puddle.

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Ogden Family

Lindsey and Meredith gifted this photo session to their family and I’m so glad they did!  We had a blast out at Mt Pleasant Waterfront Park (or at least I did!)  Please take note of a few things…
1.  The grands are ALL boys!
2.  The littlest guy gave me the stink eye for the duration of the session 🙂
3.  Uncle and nephew were unintentionally twinning
4.  I got to capture a LOT of fun and love happening in this family

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Toscano Family

I first met the Toscano family in 2015 and have been photographing them each fall since!  I’ve loved watching the interactions between this brother-sister duo, Julian and Marley.  They always crack each other up!  Which I’m thankful for because it results in some awesome pics!
