Columbia Lake Family Session

Lauren reached out to me from Gilbert, SC and wanted a family session somewhere in between Columbia, SC and Charleston.  She wanted the Cypress tree/moss and lake look and I immediately knew the perfect location!  I love the look of this location in the fall and winter because I do love the brown tones so much!

I could see the love in this sweet family immediately and the boys cooperated and were so good!  Also before their session Lauren reached out to me and asked if she could wear my Reclamation dress from my client closet.  It’s one of my favorites!

Here are a few of my favorites from her session…

If you are in the Columbia, SC area and you need a family or maternity photographer, feel free to reach out and set something up with me.  While I will travel for photo sessions, we can also possibly find somewhere to meet that isn’t as far as Charleston.




Hello! Thank you for visiting! I’m Melissa, a lifestyle family and maternity photographer servicing Charleston, SC and surrounding areas. To me a photo session is more than just smiling at the camera. I want to capture the personalities and playfulness of each member of your family. The way that your daughter grabs her daddy’s pinkie while walking. The way your son plays with your necklace when you hold him close. The way you and your husband giggle at each other when your child does that goofy toothless smile. Those are the timeless moments I want to capture! One day those memories will fade but the photos will carry on.
