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!

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: 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!

Kiawah Island, SC Photo Session: Hark Family

I love the vibe of an extended family session when everyone is relaxed on vacation and the cousins get to play with one another.  Everyone’s happy to be together and my job is to convince the guys that family photos is exactly how they want to spend a couple of hours on their week off, ha!  Love that this family brought beach balls to play with – in 7 years of business that’s, surprisingly, the first time a family has done that!  So your thoughts – does the family photo with the beach balls look like an Old Navy ad??  🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Cowles Family

I’m thankful when early morning sessions force me to get out of bed to enjoy the beautiful beach sunrises!  I can’t think of a better way to start the day.  Arden was not so sure about the strange lady with the camera but by the end of our session we got some sweet smiles!
