Melissa Bandli

I’m a Palm Springs native with a passion for photographing ordinary things creatively.  My favorite part of being a photographer is bringing back otherwise lost confidence in clients who feel doubtful of the way they look in front of the camera and/or in person.  It’s a beautiful thing to see my clients faces light up with happiness as I show them their raw images as we are shooting, it’s like they suddenly realize how amazing they truly are. While I do pose my clients during my sessions, I enjoy stepping back and allowing them space to interact naturally with one another which I feel looks more fluid and intimate. My whole concept behind my sessions is to capture moments that otherwise would be lost.
