When to schedule ?

It's only a few days and your baby will change completely. It's an amazing time to create some memories.


We usually recommend taking pictures of newborns up to two weeks, when the baby has enough flexibility for the most beautiful poses. In addition, the baby sleeps more hours in a row, however, we can accommodate babies up to 4 weeks old, with some pose limitations.

We strongly recommend booking your newborn session during pregnancy to guarantee a space on Paloma's agenda.

To avail your discount, you will need to pay 50% of the total cost for both sessions at the time of booking.
Once the maternity session is completed, you will receive a proof gallery containing all the photographs taken during the session. From there, you will be able to select your favorite photos, and once the selection is made, we will send you an invoice for the remaining balance for both sessions.

  • When is the best time to take maternity photos?
    The ideal period for a maternity session is between 28 and 34 weeks, when the belly is well evident, but the mother still feels comfortable.
  • What kind of clothes should I wear for the maternity session?
    I recommend wearing clothes that highlight the belly, such as fitted dresses, tops, and pants. After booking, I will send a detailed guide to help you choose clothes that ensure a harmonious and cohesive look for the session. My style is modern, natural, and minimalist, focused on the mother-to-be. Most likely, all the clothes I recommend you will already have in your wardrobe, avoiding the need to invest in pieces you will never use again.
  • Can I include my partner and children in the maternity photos?
    Yes, you have two options. The first is to choose the most complete package (Full Session), which already includes photos with your partner and children. The other option is to book the Petit package and add family photos for an additional $50 per person.
  • How long does a maternity session last?
    Maternity sessions usually last between 60 and 90 minutes.
  • How do I schedule a session?
    You can book by filling out the form and waiting for our team to contact you to confirm the availability of the chosen date. If it is not available, we will send other options that best fit your schedule.
  • To get a discount of up to $200, do I need to schedule the maternity and newborn sessions together?
    Yes, when filling out the reservation form, select the "Maternity Studio + Newborn Session" option to secure your discount. This special offer is designed to provide a comprehensive and continuous experience of capturing the important moments from your maternity to the first days of your baby.
  • How can I prepare for the session?
    After booking, you will receive a guide with all the necessary information to better prepare for the session, ensuring no doubts remain.
  • What is the delivery time and format of the images?
    Files will be delivered in high resolution, in JPG format, without a logo, in an online gallery. Up to 3 days after the session, you will receive a proof gallery with unedited and watermarked images to choose from. You will have 2 weeks to choose the photos. Within 2 days after the selection, you will receive the invoice for the session balance. The fully edited images will be delivered within 2-3 weeks after the final payment of the invoice. If you purchase albums or frames, the delivery time varies according to the supplier.
  • How will the payments be made?
    At the time of booking, you will pay 50% of the session value to guarantee the date on the calendar. After the session, you will receive a proof gallery with the best photos to choose from. Only after the selection will we send an invoice with the session balance, including the remaining 50%, family additions, extra photos, and products, if you have purchased any.
  • Do you offer photo albums or other products?
    Yes, we offer a variety of products such as photo albums, canvas prints, frames, and more. We can discuss these options during the session or after the photo selection.
  • Where will the session take place?
    Sessions are held at Koch & Schell Studio, in downtown Houston, which is fully equipped for the comfort of the baby and expectant mothers. For your convenience, we offer free valet parking so you don't have to worry about where to park your car.

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!

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!
