Maternity Session and Gender Reveal

I was so thrilled to see this family again for a maternity session and gender reveal! This couple are both physicians in Houston whom I met when I did their son’s lifestyle newborn pictures at their home. As you can see, it’s been a while! Their little man has gotten so big. He’s adorable, and I loved that he still had that full head of gorgeous dark hair.

Outdoor maternity session with family

For this maternity session, we met at a beautiful park in Spring, Texas. Outdoor maternity photography can be just as much of a luxury experience as doing it in the studio or at home. There is nothing to rival the beauty of the outdoors. And of course, you can still have the full experience of choosing outfits from the studio wardrobe, getting your hair and makeup professionally done, and having gorgeous finished artwork. (More on all of that at the end of this post!)

We had decided to make this both a maternity session and gender reveal, so that added an extra element of fun! Mom was convinced this little one was a boy, so she was so excited (and surprised) that it was a girl! She said, “I have to get out the papers and check. I don’t believe it!”

It was definitely a girl though, and…

Newborn Sneak Peek

I can’t resist sharing a couple of sneak peeks from baby girl’s newborn photo session! I welcomed her to the studio just last week, along with all the family. Isn’t she the sweetest?

Their nanny is also a special part of this family’s life, and she joined us for pictures as well. I loved that she was included! It’s so hard finding someone to love on your kids the way you do–someone you can truly trust with them. When you find the right fit they really do become part of the family.

More pictures coming–including a special 8-person portrait with Mom, Dad, baby, big brother, and all the grandparents!

The Luxury Experience

As a mother and a professional photographer, I know how important it is for mamas to have beautiful pictures of their babies. And I know that life is so incredibly busy! That’s why, at Shannon Reece Jones Photography, I specialize in creating a luxury photo experience that combines ease and comfort with unparalleled artistry. I will guide you through every step of your portrait experience so that all you have to do is enjoy!

Hair and Makeup

A luxury portrait photography experience starts with feeling beautiful. I partner with Analisa Hastings to provide you with professional hair and makeup services that are both natural and glamorous. This can be done at the studio, or, if we’re doing your session at home, they will come to you.

Client Wardrobe

You will also have access to my client wardrobe: a curated collection of dresses and gowns designed with elegance and comfort in mind. I can also help you with shopping suggestions if you prefer to purchase your own outfits.


And the best part. There’s no worrying about what to do with your photos or where to have them printed. Once you’ve chosen what you want, I take care of all the details. Your finished artwork is custom made just for you and designed with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
