Charleston, SC Photo Session: Rains and Reagan Families

Each year I photograph the Rains and Reagan families back to back which allows for some overlap time to get images of the whole crew and allll of the kids together!  Last year one of them ran away from the kiddo shot in tears so I think this year was a step in the right direction!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Esoldo Family

Ben has always been a super joyful, energetic kiddo who keeps me on my toes at every session!  He did great at this shoot – I LOVE the ones with him and his parents individually.  Their fun and silly sides came out!

Greenville, SC: Audrey’s Newborn Session

This was an extra special newborn session for me!  I met Kelly about 10 years ago when I moved to Charleston.  I appreciate her friendship so much – she’s thoughtful, intentional, laid back and fun.  We now live three hours away but that really makes no difference.  A couple of months go by and she says, “Let’s get a date on the calendar for our next visit!”  She and Kevin welcomed sweet Audrey to the world this month so I took a trip to Greenville do photograph their best girl!  What a sweet little peanut she is!  I look forward to many more photo sessions with this family (even if Kevin continues to cheese it up with his poses!)  I love that the grandparents stopped by so we could grab some quick shots with them, too.

Yours truly snuck a shot in for this special session! (I was just praying Kevin didn’t drop my camera) 🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Collins’ Cake Smash!

Collins is ONE!  And to celebrate we photographed her smashing a cake.  Although “smashing” is a strong word for her.  She was very dainty about it!  Collins was one of my most expressive little newborns and not much has changed!  And that last photo of her in a cake coma…!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Norvez Family

Anna wanted some backgrounds that were different than where she lives in Brooklyn.  I think we accomplished that here!  We had our session at two of my favorite places in Charleston – the spanish moss covered trees at Hampton Park and Folly Beach.  Maxine did an amazing job hamming it up for me!  Side note: it’s the first session I’ve ever seen a dolphin (swimming) AND a shark (caught by someone on the beach, yikes!)


I’d love to work with you and your family!  Email me at info@melissagriffinphotography.com to book!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Seth

I took photos of Seth one year ago for his newborn session.  He has two big sisters but this one year old photo shoot was all about HIM!  We met at Riverfront Park in North Charleston and Seth did awesome!  Until he was over the heat 🙂  Then I busted out my trusty bubbles that I buy in bulk from Amazon and they saved the day!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Serago Family

The Serago clan has a new member of the family since I’ve seen them last!  I got to meet Alexander for the first time on this early morning session at the Isle of Palms pier.  I love this location and time of the day to get that pretty, glowy, yellow light!
