Our Story

A puzzle is a magnificent work of art, built from pieces that fit perfectly together to create something whole and beautiful. This is the same magic that happened when Deborah Koch and Paloma Schell met backstage in 2019 at a workshop Paloma was teaching in Houston. They chatted and very soon realized their specialties were a complement to one another, creating a strong personal connection that convinced Paloma to leave her renowned newborn photography studio in Brazil, in search of new challenges alongside Deborah. Together, they bring art, beauty, and grace to their work, creating beautiful memories that last a lifetime. Photography is truly the closest thing we have to a time machine, and Deborah and Paloma will help you relive those special moments through their beautiful photos.

Hey there! My name is Deborah Koch and I am originally from Brazil. However, I have been living in the US for almost two decades now and it feels like home to me. I am a proud wife of an amazing man and a mom of two fantastic kids, who sometimes drive me up the wall but also bring me so much joy and laughter! 

I discovered my love for photography when my little ones were growing up too fast and I wanted to capture every single moment of their childhood. So, I bought myself a camera and started clicking away. But soon I realized that taking a good photo was more than just pressing a button, it was an art. That's when I decided to study photography in-depth. I was fascinated by the idea of creating unique memories and capturing moments that people could cherish forever. 

Eventually, I turned my passion into a career and started my own business - Deborah Koch Photography. Each client is special and unique to me, and it's an absolute joy to be able to freeze magical moments and turn them into art. I would love to have the opportunity to photograph your family and create life-lasting memories for you.

Hey there! My name is Paloma, and I'm a photographer who loves capturing beautiful moments. I specialize in newborn photography, and I consider myself very lucky to have had the chance to travel, teach, and speak at over 30 photography conferences around the world.

In 2019, I decided to take a step back from the big conference stage and focus on my clients. As a married mom of three kiddos, family moments and the simple things in life mean a lot to me. Photography lets me be present and involved in my children's lives as they grow, which is an incredible privilege.

These days, I love spending time with my family and creating beautiful memories for other families in my studio.
