The Hartling Family – Summerville Family Photographer

When Chantelle reached out to me and she already knew exactly where she wanted her photo session!  She had seen my spring flowering tree sessions in the past and loved the location.  Chantelle and her family were preparing for a move to Virginia and she wanted photos in the Lowcountry Charleston before she moved.

Chantelle’s choice of clothing was a beautiful balance palette of blues, neutrals and rust tones.

Here is this beautiful family and a few of the photos they chose to be in their final gallery.



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.
