Looking for a newborn photoshoot in the Kent and 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.

Because – let’s be honest – a Newborn Session is serious business.

A Newborn Session is special – like all once-in-a-lifetime moments in your life.

There is no going back in time to get these pictures again, no magic software, iPhone camera or wish that will ever take you back to those magical, incredible first few days.

That’s why I take it seriously.

A Newborn Session is not just about having a fancy camera and all the training – it’s about being the one you trust.

To work with your newborn baby…

To create the perfect balance of technical perfection and authentic, pure cuteness…

To make this an experience you will love – no forced poses, no pushy sales, no “I wish I had gone somewhere else”…

“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.”

Newborn Photographer Sevenoaks – Estelle Thompson Photography

Tiny babies perceive the world around them in such an instinctive way – so choosing an experienced photographer for your Newborn Session means they’ll feel safe, held by confident hands.

Experience and training also mean we will use the perfect angles and equipment that captures every last lash – those first rolls, those windy smiles, those perfect cupid bow lips and tiny toes.

When do i need to book?
It is always best to book during your pregnancy, and as early as after your 20 week scan.
When is it best time 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.
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.
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.
