FAQ

  • 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 (Luxe 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Where will the session take place?
    Sessions are held in my fully-equipped studio in Downtown Houston, specifically designed to provide comfort for both babies and expectant mothers. For your convenience, we offer free valet parking so you won't have to worry about finding a place to park your car.
  • What is the experience of the professional handling my baby?
    With over 15 years of career and more than 1000 newborns photographed, my journey is based on prioritizing safety above any beautiful photo. I have participated in renowned courses with nurses and pediatricians who provided the foundation of my knowledge about newborn safety and care. The baby's comfort will always come first.
  • What is the ideal age for photography?
    We recommend scheduling the session within the first 2 weeks of the baby's life, a period when they still sleep a lot and are more flexible for poses.
  • My child is more than 2 weeks old. Can I still have a newborn session?
    Yes, it is possible to photograph babies up to 40 days old. However, some more complex poses may not be feasible. During the session, we will assess the baby's flexibility and cooperation to decide which poses are possible, always respecting the limits of their delicate body. If there are any restrictions, we will perform simpler poses, ensuring that the session is as beautiful and enchanting as those done with younger babies.
  • When should I schedule the newborn session?
    It is recommended to schedule the session during pregnancy, preferably in the second trimester. After the baby is born, we will confirm the exact date of the session.
  • I don't know the exact date the baby will be born. Can I schedule without being sure of the date?
    We schedule according to your expected due date, just to guarantee a date on my calendar. Once the baby is born, you will contact us to inform and confirm the session date.
  • How long does a newborn session last?
    A newborn session can last between 1 to 4 hours, including time for feeding, changing, and calming the baby.
  • Can I include siblings and parents in the newborn photos?
    Yes, you have two options. The first is to choose the most complete package (Luxe), which already includes photos with the baby's parents and siblings. The other option is to book the Petit or Jolie package and add family photos for an additional $50 per person. We recommend that only parents and siblings be present in the studio, as the presence of additional people may disrupt the session.
  • What do I need to bring to the session?
    You only need to bring the baby's essential items, such as diapers, pacifiers, and bottles. We provide all the accessories and clothes the baby will wear during the session. If you have booked family photos, please bring an outfit for each participating member. After booking, we will send a detailed guide to help you choose clothes that ensure a harmonious and cohesive look for the session.

Paloma's style of photography perfectly

I recently had the pleasure of working with Paloma for my maternity photoshoot, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Paloma's style of photography perfectly captured the beauty and emotion of this special time in my life. I felt comfortable and relaxed during the shoot, which I believe is reflected in the stunning final images. I highly recommend Paloma to anyone looking for a talented and dedicated photographer in Houston, Texas.

PROFESSIONAL PRINTS

YOUR MEMORIES WITH QUALITY AND ELEGANCE
maternity studio photoshoot 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!
