Welcome to Estelle Thompson Photography


One moment you are booking your newborn photoshoot and holding that squishy baby in your arms for the first time, then you blink and they are sitting up and giggling.

They grow so fast! Sitter photoshoots are really one of my favourite things to do. Once your baby is sitting unaided you can book this magical session that freezes time and helps you remember that giggle and the first signs of their personality.

All sitter photoshoots take place in my private photography studio in Fawkham, near Sevenoaks in Kent. You will have a range of outfits to choose from or you can bring your own. You can see some of the outfits and shoots here

“Estelle was fantastic with my 8-month-old son, now on the move, it isn’t easy to take photos of him! She is calm with lots of patience, so the perfect choice to photograph children. The photos are amazing, they really capture his cheeky personality. I don’t have lots of photos of myself with my son, as I’m always the one taking them, so it was lovely to have some photos of us together. I’m thrilled with all the photos, and can’t recommend Estelle enough. Book a session with her – you won’t be disappointed”



All baby photography session are done in my private, warm, comfortable photography studio in Longfield, Sevenoaks in Kent.

Sitter sessions are perfect for babies who are able to sit up unaided to ensure the photoshoot can create some beautiful portraits that perfectly capture your little one’s personality.

“Hi Estelle just wanted to say thank you so much the album it’s absolutely amazing and I love all the photos so much. You were amazing with James as he didn’t always want to play ball but you persevered and captured the most amazing pictures that we will treasure forever! I will be recommending you to all my friends and family”



This photoshoot is all about the baby and their smiles so I like to keep the styling simple but we will have a telephone consultation to discuss what you would like and what will go nicely to fit with the décor in your home. The whole photoshoot is taken at the baby’s pace, with lots of breaks for cuddles and changes. These shoots are a lot of fun and give you beautiful photographs of your baby at this sensational stage



“Estelle was recommended to me by one of the mum’s in a baby group I attend. I had been looking for someone who could capture some magical photos of my baby’s first Christmas photoshoot. I was definitely not disappointed. Estelle is extremely professional she made both my baby and I feel very at ease, managing to keep up a friendly conversation, entertaining baby, and all the while taking the most amazing photos. Thank-you Estelle for capturing some truly magical shots. Highly recommend”

When is it best to photograph my baby?

As soon as the baby is sitting unaided, message me to book. It is usually between 6 & 9 months but some babies are sooner, some are later. The best time is sitting but not yet crawling.

What should my baby wear?

When you book, please let me know if you have any specific outfits you would like the baby to wear. If not, I have lots of outfits to choose from.

I have a theme in mind, could you help with that?

Yes – just let me know when you book what your aspirations for the shoot are and we can work on it together.

What if my baby doesn’t cooperate on the day?

Babies will be babies but we will ensure that we book sufficient time for the shoot to ensure we get some lovely images. I will give you a prep guide in advance to ensure we book at a good time of day and that you know what to do on the day of the shoot to help us have a cooperative baby.

When can I view my images?

Usually within 2 weeks of your session, we will arrange a mutually convenient time for you to come back and view your gallery.
