Looking for a newborn photoshoot in the Sevenoaks area?

If you love the idea of beautiful images created in a warm, welcoming and relaxing specialist studio that feels like home… you are in the right place!

I am Estelle, and my idea of heaven includes a calm, safe, nest-like studio and my favourite camera.

I have been specifically trained in the art of newborn posing and safety, and I believe that safety should always come first when working with babies. Everyone has access to a camera nowadays – be it on your phone or a camera you use for holidays – but a professional photoshoot for your newborn baby, by a specialist newborn photographer is so much more than that and is an investment in your families memories.

Being a newborn photographer in Longfield means I am ideally placed for clients from the surrounding Kent towns of Sevenoaks, New Ash Green, Dartford, Gravesend and Swanley.

Your Newborn Photography Experience

A newborn photoshoot is not to be missed – your baby grows so fast in front of your eyes, it is such a precious time. During your newborn photoshoot, I will be using all my training and specialist experience in my newborn photography studio in Longfield to use angles and equipment that captures every last lash – those first rolls, those windy smiles, those perfect cupid bow lips and tiny toes – I will take beautiful photographs of your baby that capture all of that and more.  I encourage photos with siblings and with parents – these photographs are an investment in your childs memories and you will love them for years to come.



“We went to Estelle for our son’s newborn photography in Longfield and we are so in love with the photos taken. The day was so enjoyable, Estelle made us feel very welcome and simply let us sit back while she worked her magic. Estelle is extremely professional and can tell she has a passion for what she does. We will definitely be going back to her for more photos in the future.”

“We had the most wonderful newborn shoot with Estelle who made us feel immediately at home. It was clear from the start of the session that she took huge pride in her work as she had so much patience ensuring she got the right shot every time. I can’t wait to go back for a sitter session, thank you for having us xx”



All newborn photoshoots are done in my private, warm, comfortable photography studio in Longfield, Sevenoaks in Kent.

Clients that have been to me often return with their baby to capture their full first year and then with baby no2; 3; and sometimes no4! I love to welcome siblings in to the studio too to ensure you get wonderful shots of them together.

The best time to photograph your baby is when they are under 3 weeks of age.

Getting in touch during your pregnancy, as early as your 20 weeks scan, ensures we have plenty of time to plan the styling of your session and to help you prepare.

If you are reading this and you have had your baby already, get in touch! I am sure I will still be able to help you.



“Estelle was recommended to me by a friend and I’m so glad I used her for my newborn shoot! She was really accommodating and managed to fit me in last minute. She was AMAZING with my little man and you can tell she loves her job. She was calming patient and really knowledgable. I’m so so happy with the images and I can’t wait to see the rest! Nothing was pushed or rushed and I cannot recommend her enough. The snack box for parents was also a winning touch! Thank you so much for capturing Frasers first photos”

When do i need to book?

It is always best to book around the time of your 20 week scan. I limit the number of sessions I book each month to ensure I can fit everyone it, and I would hate for you to be disappointed

When will i book the session for?

I will always book for your due date – then I simply ask that you contact me once the baby is born so we can get your session booked in

When is it best to photography my baby?

I always suggest getting your session in within the first 14 days. We want baby to still be all sleepy and curly so we can pose them beautifully

My baby is older than 14 days - is it too late?

No, not at all, it just might be a slightly different session. Contact me and we can have a chat about various options

What if my baby doesn't sleep?

Nothing is guaranteed with babies, but what I can guarantee is that you will get some beautiful images. The studio is heated to a temperature that makes baby really comfortable and you will be provided with a prep sheet before you come so you can ensure you know exactly what to do to help ensure baby sleeps for their session.

How many people can come with me to the studio?

The studio has been designed in every way to make baby comfortable. I would suggest parents only so we have minimal noise and enough space to work.

Can my other children come too?

Of course you will want all your children photographed together. I welcome siblings to the studio but make sure you let me know how many and what ages in advance so we can make a plan to ensure they can be photographed and then go off for a walk with Dad or grandparents to they don’t get too bored.

What training have you had to ensure my baby is in safe hands?

I am proud of the training I have invested in to ensure your baby is totally safe in my studio. Safety is my biggest concern and as such I have trained in the art of newborn safety and posing with some of the UK’s leading newborn photographers. I am also trained in child first aid (but I hope we wouldn’t need that!).

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.
