I'm Shannon, and I'm so glad you're here! As a Houston, Texas family photographer and busy mom of 3, I know how fast time goes by; I know that those tiny toes and sweet smiles grow up faster than we want them to.

I also know you are busy with work, life, and everything in between — so I am here to help with all of the tiny details. From a studio wardrobe to hair and makeup, at Shannon Reece Jones Photography, we make the entire photography experience simple, fun, and stress-free — so you can focus on creating meaningful and lasting memories with your family.

My sweet families have described my work as "delicate and subtle," "sentimental" and "timeless." I try to make every session special, beautiful, and a real glimpse into this special time in your life.

My goal is to create precious keepsake portraits that you can pass down to your babies... and their babies. I can't wait for your session!

If you are on this page, and are expecting, or if you just had your baby, I want to personally say congratulations! As a mommy to three, I know that there is nothing more beautiful than when your baby is born, that sweet cry that you hear for the very first time, and when you lay your sweet baby on your chest and feel their heart beat right on yours. It's a great love that you can never explain, and one that you will always have for them, no matter how old they are. 

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 and 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 a new 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 below will guide you through helpful ideas including what to wear, when to schedule your session, and tips about newborn photography.

As always, you are welcome to email me with any questions along the way. Your session will be customized just for you.

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

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

About Newborn Photography

— Alexandra

Shannon recently took the most stunning newborn & family photos we have had in over 10 years! Her work draws you in. She has a fantastic calm demeanor and her work is truly art.

"Her work draws you in."

— Randi

Shannon was amazing to work with! The experience for both my maternity and newborn sessions was seamless! She has everything you need, literally show and go! So important especially for a tired new momma! Her bedside manners can’t be matched either, a calm and relaxing atmosphere she presents. And lastly the attention to detail for her pictures is priceless. Thank you Shannon for capturing memories to last.

"The tears instantly fell when she sent this to me"

— Bianca

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

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


I believe seeing your portraits in print is truly the best part of the entire photography session experience. We will also plan your next session at this time if you are part of the First Year Baby Plan. I am truly so honored and overjoyed to play a role in capturing your newborn photography; it's my joy to capture your growing family.

Your viewing and ordering appointment is when you get to see your images at the studio for the first time and order what you love! Bring the tissue; those hormones are real, and there are always happy tears. Most maternity and newborn clients choose the baby plan, and order images to go into their first year.

Studio or at home lifestyle; a typical newborn portrait session can range anywhere from 1 hours to 3 hours. Your session will be completely baby led, so we will just take our time with feedings, diaper changes, and mommy snuggles. I recommend planning about an hour for hair and makeup before your session as well. This is a special experience!

From hair and makeup, to what to wear, we will customize and design the perfect style for your newborn portraits. I have gowns and newborn accessories 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 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. What about adding a maternity session?

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 should I schedule my newborn session?

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