Welcome to Estelle Thompson Photography


My family is one of the most important things in my life. I love being part of a large family and I equally love being a family photographer in Kent and photographing other people’s families – the dynamics, the personalities, the generations. As a family photographer in Sevenoaks, Kent, and I have been photographing families in Kent, Surrey & Sussex for many years. Often it becomes an annual tradition and I love to see the family change over the years. If you would like a family photoshoot the information below will help you to get a feel for how a family shoot with me will work but if you have any questions please do get in touch. You can also take a look through the galleries



“Estelle is lovely!
A brilliant, professional family photographer, with the patience of a saint!! The kids absolutely loved her – she knows exactly what to say and do to get those smiles. We have some gorgeous family shots!”

Family Photographer Sevenoaks – Estelle Thompson Photography

Shoots will take up to 2 hours, depending on which package you choose. We will ensure we have time to capture all the images that encapsulate your family whilst making sure we have lots of fun at the same time.

Your family photoshoot includes:

  • Your choice of location, studio or outdoor & time of the shoot
  • Up to thirty images to choose from
  • Telephone consultation to discuss locations and styling including the best colours to wear to work with the seasons

At the end of your session, we will make an appointment for you to come back for your viewing and ordering appointment, which will normally take place two weeks after the date of your photoshoot.

Here, you will view your beautiful gallery of professionally edited images and have an opportunity to choose which product or packages suit you best.

Image collections start at £299 (inclusive of VAT) for 5 digital images and matching prints.

“We booked Estelle for a family shoot. My youngest daughter said she didn’t want her photo taken before we went and we always get unnatural photos of her – fake smiles! She got on so well with Estelle, in fact, both my children loved her and felt so comfortable during the shoot. The result is that the photos came out beautifully! Way lovelier than I could ever have hoped, so natural- I am absolutely over the moon with them and I hate myself in photos!! They brought tears to my eyes. I would recommend Estelle for any family that has children and I have already enquired about our next shoot. Thank you so much!”



I am so lucky to have the my beautiful Sevenoaks Photography studio to photograph in when the weather is not kind, however I love photographing families outdoors and my family shoots are often in beautiful outdoor spaces. This allows the children space to run and play, not to mention the stunning backdrops we can find.

We will always discuss the possible locations in advance and I will ensure that wherever we choose to shoot you will be comfortable, the kids will not be confined and it will be a suitable and accessible location.



“Estelle did such an amazing job photographing my twins who have very different personalities. Her photos capture this fantastically. I would recommend Estelle to anyone and would 100% book to use her again!”



Is outdoor or studio best?

That really is totally down to you. Some people have places in mind that have sentimental memories for the family, some people just love the outdoors and some people prefer the comfort of the studio. The best thing to do is to give me a call or send a message and we can work out what would be best for you.

What should we wear?

This really depends on whether you are having a studio, or an outdoor shoot, what season we are in and what time of day. Again, I will guide you on styles and colours prior to the shoot to ensure that your images work beautifully with the background.

How many people can be in the shoot?

Immediate family works best. All the pricing options are based on one family, however If there is a particular shot you would like of extended family please let me know and we can ensure we include it.

When can I view my images?

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