I started my photography career in 2011 working as a photo editor, but working with images on a computer screen seemed too lifeless for me. I wanted to stand behind the lens and create magic, and that's how photography won me over. 

I love capturing the best in people: the laughter, the tears, the dreams, and the affection. I'm honored when people allow me to portray the beauty of their soul through the portal of a single glance. 

In 2015 I opened my own studio in Brazil. Photographing children has always been what makes my eyes shine. As a mother of 3 children, I know how time flies. I know the immeasurable value of having photos of our children's important moments. 

In recent years I moved to the United States and took a break from my career to dedicate myself 100% to my little ones and to improve my photographer's eye. This journey has gifted me with greater perspective on who I am and what I like to do. Cake smash sessions combine the things I love the most: like all Brazilians, I love a good party, and photography has always been my passion.

She was so loving and gentle

Couldn't have asked for a better experience for our newborn pics ! I was nervous until I walked through the door and met Paloma , Leandro and Deborah. They made the experience so comfortable and calm for everyone. Their studio is so cozy and I was able to relax while Paloma photographed my son. She was so loving and gentle.
The pictures are something we will cherish for ever - absolutely beautiful!



Photographic Studio Houston

Technology has brought us many conveniences, but we've lost the habit of having photos scattered around the house or in family albums.


Technology evolves and, unfortunately, technology can become obsolete or fail outright.  Printed photography remains a tangible incarnation of your memories.

That's why printed products are so precious.  When we invest time and treasure in a photoshoot and keep it only in a digital format, it's like buying a gorgeous painting that is never put on display.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for considering us to be a part of your special moment!
