The Mugica Family

The moment Gladys contacted me to photograph her family I knew we were going to make magic. She had her own vision of what she wanted for her family session so we discussed locations in length, clothing, and the overall feel she wanted. One thing I learned working as a hair stylist for 5 years, is that the consultation is the most important part of your appointment and a photo session is the same!

Gladys used Style and Select to choose her outfits for her family session, which is a styling website that makes choosing your outfits so much easier for your session. I offer this option to all my clients when they book a session with me. I also send them my What to Wear Guide and a link to Pinterest board that has lots of options and gives you examples of what looks great for sessions. And I am always there to help if you need any help at all. What you wear to your session really has such an impact on the overall look and feel of your session. I can’t stress enough how important that is!

Here are a few of my favorites from their session in Summerville so you can see for yourself!


Do you see how the clothes set the tone of the entire session? Yes the light and location are part of the equation also, but the colors they chose for their outfits, complimented each other so beautifully.

Contact me today for your beautiful session in Charleston, SC and we will tell your families story together.

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.
