Charleston, SC Photo Session: Fralish Family

I had the privilege of photographing the Fralish family during my spring mini sessions this year.  They hadn’t had family photos done since the youngest was 6 months old – he’s 7 now!  It’s so easy for time to get away from us and we can just put off getting photos done but it’s so important!  Especially for you mamas to be in the photos since you are the ones always taking them!  So glad we connected to update their family album 🙂

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 🙂

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.

Charleston, SC: Christmas 2018 Photo Sessions

Here are a few highlights from my Christmas-y sessions for you!  I just finished my 167th photo session yesterday, my last one for 2018!  I’m headed home to New York for some much needed time with my family.  And of course I’ll be posting photos of my niece and new nephew…



Thank you, thank you to all of my amazing clients who trust me to take their family photos!  I love capturing your babies being cute, your kiddos doing funny stuff and the love your family has for each other.


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.
