If you are on this page and are expecting, I want to personally say congratulations! As a mommy to three babies, I know that there is nothing more magical than hearing your baby's heartbeat for the first time, feeling butterfly kicks in your belly, and knowing that you are their home and safe place for the next 9 months. 

Shannon Reece Jones Photography is a boutique photography studio serving Houston, Texas and surrounding locations including — but not limited to — The Woodlands, Spring, The Heights, Cypress, River Oaks, Conroe, Katy, Kingwood, Memorial & Magnolia. I personally photograph expecting parents, newborn babies, children & families.

The goal of each session is to create family heirlooms that tell your story. Each piece of artwork is created just for you to share with your baby, and their babies, and generations to come. Maternity and newborn favorites include keepsake albums, fine art prints, and custom wall art designed for your home and the baby's nursery. Additional options include museum-quality gallery wrapped canvas, custom framing, and modern acrylics. These are your forever memories and we are so lucky to share this special season of life with you and your family.

As an expecting mother, especially with your first baby, I know that you are overwhelmed with so many emotions. There are feelings of joy, excitement, worry, and even wonder. The unknown is a little scary, but when hiring a professional photographer, there shouldn’t be any concern or worry. This is a time to capture all of the beautiful things happening in your life, to you, your growing family, and your sweet baby.

The information here will guide you through helpful ideas including what to wear, when to schedule  your session, and tips about maternity photography. As always, you are welcome to contact Shannon Reece Jones Photography with any questions you may have. Your maternity photography session will be uniquely-customized just for you.

I'm so happy for you, and I can't wait to work with you and with your growing family!

A once-in-a-lifetime maternity photography session to capture this special season with elegance, grace, and joy.

About Maternity Photography

— Mary

We had such a great experience doing newborn photos with Shannon!! She was so accommodating to changes with some medical issues I had after birth and was so professional. We loved our photos and we ordered framed portraits.

"We had such a great experience"

— Christina

We are amazed at her talent and how well she worked with our precious 2 week old. She had everything displayed in her studio and organized so it was easy to pick out what type of pictures we wanted. We are grateful we found her and have everlasting memories of our newborn because of her. Thank you Shannon our family will never use anyone else!

"She's a natural mother and amazingly skilled photographer."

— Bianca

She is incredibly talented, creative, patient and easy to work with! Shannon did my maternity and newborn shoots and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.

"I can't say enough wonderful things about Shannon and her work"


More than just a photography session, the goal for each session is to create custom artwork for you, your family, and your home.  Following your photography session, attend your design appointment, where you'll choose the portraits that you love and we will turn them into beautiful printed artwork.


How our business is different...

Wall Portraits, Keepsake Albums, Fine Art Prints & More...

I believe seeing and experiencing your portraits in print is truly the best part of your entire maternity photography experience. When viewing your portraits, we will also plan and prepare for your next session if you have chosen to be part of SRJP's First Year Baby Plan. I am so honored to capture these special moments in your life!

Your viewing and ordering appointment is when you get to see your images for the first time and order what you love! Most maternity clients choose the First Year Baby Plan and order images to go into their first year album or wall grouping. You will be presented with all of the options at the studio as well. 

Studio, at home lifestyle, or outdoor; a typical maternity portrait session is about one hour. You can choose a studio session as well as an outdoor session if you would like both. Prepare for a two-hour photography session, allotting about an hour for hair and makeup. Stylists can come to you, or you are welcome to hold your appointment at the studio.

From hair and makeup, to what to wear, we will work together to customize and design the perfect style for your maternity portraits. I have gowns in the studio that you are welcome to borrow, or I can help you choose your own. We will plan your final artwork and when your newborn session will take place.

Q. Where do the sessions take place?

Maternity sessions take place at the Shannon Reece Jones Photography studio in The Woodlands, TX or at a local Nature Preserve. Newborn sessions are also welcome to be at the studio, or we will travel to if you choose an at home lifestyle session. We will chat more when planning your session about the best location for you and your family. 

Most expecting Moms reserve their newborn and maternity session dates and times together. We will pencil in your newborn photography session about 14 days from your expected due date. As we get closer to your due date, we can always move the date back or forward if we need to. 

Q. When do I plan my newborn session? 

Most maternity sessions take place between 28-33 weeks of your pregnancy. We do book maternity sessions as early as 12 weeks, and it is common that Shannon knows that you are expecting before you even tell your friends and family.

Q. When should I schedule my maternity session

With years of expertise, I've designed an elevated, personal, one-of-a-kind experience.
