Welcome to Estelle Thompson Photography


Well, firstly congratulations!

This is such an incredibly special time and one that should be photographed for your memories. So many people come to me for me to photograph their newborn babies and say how much they wished they had had a maternity shoot, so please don’t miss out. As a maternity photographer in Sevenoaks, I want to make you feel amazing and ensure once that glorious bump is gone and the baby is in your arms, you have stunning photographs to look back on.

My maternity photography sessions can take place on location in Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex or London (travel may apply) or in my warm and private photography studio in Fawkham, Sevenoaks, Kent. I have a professional make up artist available on request to really make you have a wonderful experience.

They really are a lot of fun and everyone says what a lovely experience it is. Take a look at the galleries and then contact me to book

Maternity Photo Sessions Sevenoaks – Estelle Thompson Photography

Your maternity photography shoot is best done between 30 – 35 weeks to make the most of that lovely bump.

For location sessions, we will discuss and agree the location during your booking process – I have done many beautiful maternity shoots on the beaches in Kent, in woodlands, in orchards and in lavender fields. If you have a particular idea of a location please let me know. If you prefer to come to the studio, I have a selection of maternity gowns and outfits and I will guide you on what to bring with you, what underwear to wear and anything you need to bring. If you wish to have your make up done, please let me know when booking as this is booked and paid separately.

Approximately 2 weeks after your session, I will welcome you back to the studio for your viewing appointment where you can view your final gallery and choose which package suit you best. 


Your maternity session at my studio in Sevenoaks, Kent, only costs £65.

This covers the entire process and my work in the studio but does not include products and images.

After all, why would you pay in advance for images you have not seen yet?

Your final gallery of edited images will be waiting for you when you come to the studio for your viewing appointment.

Image collections and products start from £199 (inclusive of VAT) for 5 digital images and matching prints.



“I had my maternity and newborn baby pictures done with Estelle and I couldn’t recommend her more. She made me feel so comfortable when having my pictures taken as it’s not something I would usually do. She was absolutely brilliant with my baby girl and I felt so comfortable leaving her to it and giving me a rest! So much patience with her and her passion to get the best results is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much!!!”



I am so lucky to have my beautiful photography studio in Kent to photograph in when the weather is not kind, however, I love being outdoors and my maternity shoots are often in beautiful outdoor spaces with some stunning backgrounds we can use.

We will always discuss the possible locations in advance and I will ensure that wherever we choose to shoot you will be comfortable.



“I recently had a maternity shoot and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Estelle was professional and made my partner and I feel very relaxed and at ease with the camera. She had fab ideas and I am really pleased with our pictures. Wonderful memories to keep forever. Thank you Estelle!”



When should I book my shoot?

As early as possible! The shoots are best done between 30 & 35 weeks. Once you have had your 12 week scan and you are happy with your due dates, send me a message to book.

What should I wear?

Short answer is, anything you like. I do have some stunning maternity gowns that you can wear, but if you want to bring your own clothes that is great.

Can my partner come?

Absolutely! Getting your partner involved in your maternity shoot is always recommended and I would love to welcome you both.

Can my children come?

It is lovely for you all to have memories of this time, so yes – of course. It can get a little boring for them, so I would always recommend that we do the family shots first, then ask your partner to take any other children off for a walk to occupy them while I photograph you.

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.
