Charleston, SC Photo Session: Brookes Family

Most of the sessions you’ll find on here are younger children so it’s fun to do something a little different once in awhile!  I have worked with the Brookes family before and find some satisfaction in making John and Wilson feel awkward, ha!  I know a family photo shoot is on every 15 year old boy’s favorite thing to do on a fall evening 🙂

Their serious model faces…

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Guthrie Family

Are Townes and Bitsy not the cutest? (No, not twins – I thought they might be at first!)  I met them for the first time as part of my spring mini sessions.  It was such a joy to take their photos.  They had the sweetest, shyest smiles and it took a little time to get them to come out of their shells but after some jumping and tickling and twirling it did the trick 🙂


Thanks for visiting!  To book a session or ask me anything please email me at info@melissagriffinphotography.com.  I’d love to chat!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Petrino Family

The Petrino family signed up for one of my spring mini photo sessions.  After having to reschedule due to weather we got a perfect evening on Daniel Island.  I’ve been working with them since Roman’s first birthday!  My life is flashing before my eyes 😉

One of my favorites – after mom and dad asked them to smooch and they immediately wiped their mouths, ha!

When mommy and daddy say, “give each other a kiss!”…
Here’s their immediate reaction 🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Fox Family

Okay, can we just talk for a minute about how this image of William and Nora is one of my favorites ever??  Fast forward four years and look how big they are now!

We took these images while Grandma and Grandpa were visiting and it was such a joy to watch them all interact.  The love they all have for each other is so apparent (so is the silliness)!  I won’t tell you what was happening behind my back to get some of these genuine smiles.  Although, I’m not even 100% sure what was going on back there….  🙂

Bonus: Bella the bulldog made an appearance!


I’d love to work with you and your family!  If you’d like to book a photo session with me please email me at info@melissagriffinphotography.com so we can chat!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Braun Family

I just love photographing these pretty girls!  I have taken their photos 4 times now and they are so polite and kind and give me ideas for poses 🙂  We had some perfect morning light for our session at Smythe Park on Daniel Island.


Please email me to book a photo session for your family or children!

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.

October Mini Session Highlights!

Here are some photos from my second round of mini sessions this fall!  We met at Smythe Park on Daniel Island.  This spot is a little hidden gem!  Beautiful light in the morning and not as busy as some of the downtown locations.  I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a good spot for family photos!  (Just watch out for the gators) 🙂

Mini sessions are sold out for this fall but email me at info@melissagriffinphotography.com if you’d like to schedule a maternity, newborn or family session!

If you want to be the first to know when my spring minis are please feel free to join my email list!  I promise I won’t spam you 🙂  I’ll send about 3-4 emails per year.
