  • Profile

    I am a mother of three myself, and have specialized in photographing babies since 2009 (after the birth of my daughter!). This is my work & my passion!

    I love everything about photographing newborns… I love snuggling & posing babies, and creating heirloom art for their families. I love capturing all of the beautiful little details, and freezing these fleeting moments in time. My style is timeless and classic, with baby’s safety and comfort always top priority.

    Now that my own children are growing up, I’ve realized that these portraits that we create are not only for us to enjoy (as parents), but cherished gifts that we will leave to the ones we love the most, our children.

    Melissa Landres is a full service maternity, newborn baby, child and family photographer serving Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes, Indio, Coachella and surrounding southern California areas.

      I’m so glad we made the decision to do newborn pictures with her. She came and set up at my home at 8am and didn’t leave until 2pm in order to get all the shots I wanted. My little guy didn’t want to sleep. Melissa truly cares about her little models, she was so good with my baby. Her pictures are the highest level of quality for a newborn photographer We loved all the pictures so much, we had to get them all. The pictures made awesome gifts for family and grandparents, everyone adored their gifts which ranged from canvases to calendars. I also had Christmas cards done with Melissa, they turned out EPIC! I’ll always have these pictures, a priceless investment. Thanks so much Melissa for everything, your work ethic is superb.

      Melissa photographed my baby girl when she was only 8 days old. She did an AMAZING job! As a new mom, I was completely unsure how to help. Not much was needed from me because Melissa is an expert at gently handling babies and safely positioning them for a great shot. She had many props and accessories available to use that I really didn’t bring anything except props for the special request of a Harry Potter set. The photo shoot never felt rushed. Melissa took her time and worked around my daughter’s “schedule.” Absolutely loved the photos. Already playing on Pinterest finding ideas for a 6 month photo shoot.

      Before hiring Melissa for our first daughter, my biggest fear was that our newborn wouldn’t sleep or pose well. Melissa took the time to listen to all my fears and reassured me that she would be able to get wonderful pictures. True to her word, she is a “baby whisperer”. She gave me ample enough time to care for the newborn and all the pictures and poses came out beautifully. Since then, we have hired Melissa for our second and third daughters’ newborn photos and every birthday since then.

      When I found out I was pregnant I knew the one thing I wanted most was to capture the first weeks of life with our daughter. From the moment I contacted Melissa, she was everything and more that I hoped for in a newborn photographer. She took the time to learn about what I wanted in my photos, and truly cared to get every pose and setting I desired. My baby was fussy that day and didn’t want to corporate. Melissa amazed my husband and I by getting her to sleep and created a photoshoot with pictures we will cherish forever. Melissa is all about the details and is so passionate about what she does. The newborn stage goes by too fast and I am so happy to have photos that we will cherish forever. Thank you Melissa!!
