Stephanie did a newborn shoot with our daughter Lyra, and to say that we’re delighted would be an understatement! Stephanie handled Lyra expertly and with patience, and knowing that she’s had the training to do so correctly gave us even more peace of mind. In a crowded marketplace, she stands out as the clear choice above all competitors!
Steph brings her own equipment, lights, props, etc but the set up and clear down on the day were quick and without disruption to our daily routine, and the guidelines we were sent beforehand (about feeding Lyra before the shoot, what to dress her in, etc) were very useful and went a long way to guaranteeing it went smoothly. We used some props (my wife and I being Harry Potter fans, and me having played American Football) which made the photos even more personal!
We’ve since been inundated with requests from family members for the photos, and they’ve had some amazing comments on social media. In short, we would have no hesitation in recommending Stephanie for her patience, knowledge, understanding, kindness, experience and friendliness. Thank you Steph!!
We had an outdoor photo shoot and although our eldest daughter is quite shy, Stephanie made her totally at ease. We are now proud owners of some beautiful pictures and very happy memories of the day. We wouldn’t hesitate to use you again Stephanie. Thanks a million.
Stephanie is not only an amazing photographer but also such a lovely lady who made us all including my two young daughters feel so much more at ease at our recent photoshoot. She managed to capture such beautiful photos and I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you so much xxx
Absolutely loved our newborn photo shoot. Stephanie set up at our home and spent hours getting some absolutely gorgeous photos of our little girl. We really appreciated that she took her time and ensured our daughter was happy and settled throughout. She took some time to get some of our ideas for photos and even the craziest and most complex of requests were accommodated. Nothing was too much for Stephanie and she really took some stunning photos that we adore. Not only is Stephanie wonderful professionally, she is also warm, friendly and incredibly kind. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Steph ❤️
I was a very lucky winner for a “Waiting for Santa” shoot. Stephanie is such a lovely lady and so professional. 100% recommend and will be returning soon xx
Stephanie is amazing with animals, children and camera shy adults alike. She is patient and manages to get an amazing photograph from every situation. Highly recommended.
Stephanie photographed my daughter almost 2 years ago and recently photographed my new born son. I have to say that as before she was amazing. The photos are beautiful and worth every single penny. My son would not sleep on the shoot but she managed to get amazing shots and some very restful ones of him as well. Stephanie captured his little personality totally and we have those memories to treasure. Thank you again!
Professional fun kind lady taking great photos capturing memories never to be lost.
Stephanie is an incredibly talented photographer who is amazing at capturing everything which is going on at our busy Charity Sports Days!!
She has a wonderful way with helping people feel at ease and capturing an entire event, respecting those who do not want to be photographed. I really appreciate Stephanie’s energy, kindness and generosity and she’s by far the best photographer I’ve met.
Martine McCahon – REACH
Had a wonderful photography session for my daughter Grace! Stephanie was brilliant at settling Grace and made me feel at ease! She worked hard and got some beautiful photos! Would highly recommend
Stephanie came to photograph my 2 cats for me. I didn’t really have too many expectations as you can’t exactly tell cats to sit still but I thought I would give it a go and see what happened! However, the results were outstanding. Stephanie absolutely blew my expectations away and produced the most wonderful, professional photos. How she managed to keep the cats still enough to get these shots I do not know but I am beyond happy. I have since used Stephanie for Photoshoots and Head Shots at work. Amazing Photographer!
Terri Gillham – Kent Bridal Hair
Well what can i say Stephanie was amazing made everyone feel ease. She is very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend her. Will be using her for future shoots. A very happy customer.
Lauren Alice Jackson
Stephanie Chapman, you are the best ! We had such a fun morning with you taking photos of my two fur babies.
Bella and Buddy clearly enjoyed it as well, even tho you ate one of there treats they still loved you!
Then we received photos, great excitement again. Obviously
To us they are beautiful but people just keep on liking/loving the photos. Thank you so much,we will definitely see you again
“From the website to the end……..very professional!”
After browsing the internet for baby photoshoots I came numerous website and company’s. However after Stephanie’s prompt response and professionalism towards myself as a client, I just had to book Stephanie. I can not put into words, from booking details, the photoshoot running, the preparation for us mums, to invoicing and payment all made easy for a mother to be!
However my baby decided to arrive 7 weeks early!!! After contacting Stephanie, she happily accommodated my request to change the date, bringing it forward by 4 weeks! I’d imagine she gets booked up!
She rocked up to my house with bags in toe……being a new mum leaving the house is major, so I loved that! I didn’t have to worry about props! She needed limited space. She knew what she was doing. Set up time was short and sweet. No mess and moving around!
From working with children myself, and being a hands on, fun kinda person…..it was amazing to see how Stephanie pulled out all the tricks to settle Raye, comforting her, putting her into positions, making sure she was safe and warm. She worked to a structure. A Mary Poppins to the baby photoshoot world! She didn’t over work Raye. She took it slow. Read Raye’s temperament. I left her to it!!!! We had a chat and it was nice having adult talk!
Part of Stephanie’s Statements says us parents can put our feet up and relax with a cup of tea and that is literally what you do!……. I enjoyed watching the whole thing…… she had a eye for detail and passion behind her giant camera!
Raye was a star, Stephanie was amazing…….a genuine caring lady.
I would highly recommend Stephanie not just as a photographer but a lady that goes the extra mile! Worth every penny……
I just want to say thank you so much to the lovely beautiful Stephanie Chapman! She photographed our 7 Frenchie puppies, and my three adult ones! The pictures are honestly out of this world more than I could have asked for! My dogs loved her she’s very professional and 100% knows how to get the best images! Thank you so much I really can’t thank you enough! 100% use this lovely lady!
Kieron Khory-Davidson – January 2018
We had a family photoshoot in a local park with Stephanie and would definitely recommend to others! Stephanie was wonderful with our one year old Son and knew all the tricks to make him smile! Our hardest decision was choosing which photos we liked best! Thank you Stephanie xx
Claire Still – December 2017
Fabulous photographer, great with kids (and grown ups) …no need to look elsewhere for your family portraits or seasonal photo shoots.
Tom Millward – November 2017
An absolute fantastic photographer in every way, Was made to feel totally at ease from the very start to the end, A very professional approach but with lots of laughter along the way. Love the results of the photos from our shoot, Thank you so much.
Dave Sheperd – November 2017
Stephanie came to our home and photographed our family. I can honestly say, she is very professional and made our young boys relax. She captured us so well and I love the finished products! If you have young children, I would highly recommend and if I had not been married already, would trust her to capture a special day…thank you!
Helen Stokes – November 2017
My two children had their photo taken with Stephanie in the October half term! Waiting for Santa Photo! Absolutely gorgeous – one of the best yet!!
Donna Park – November 2017
We have had the absolute pleasure of using Stephanie for our wedding photos and a variety of family shoots and can not recommend her highly enough. As a result we have a house filled with beautiful photos that capture the true essence of us! Not only is Stephanie an incredibly talented photographer but she is a truly lovely lady which only adds to the quality of her photos as she puts people at ease and makes the shoot an enjoyable experience (not an easy task when working with little people and my husband and I who really don’t like having our photo taken!!).
Kate Giddins – October 2017
Really great experience! Took two young children and Stephanie made them feel really at ease. Was so impressed!
Adele Louise – October 2017
Thank you so much for our beautiful photos! Precious moments that will be cherished forever. Thank you so much!
Charlotte Hanscombe – September 2017
This lady is amazing! From the first meeting I knew I could trust her with our day and she certainly didn’t disappoint. We have had so many comments on how lovely both she and Sarah were and how they didn’t hardly notice them there and as for the photos, they are perfect! Could not of found a better photographer and would recommend having Stephanie as your wedding photographer to everyone
Thank you so much! x
Hannah & Brett Howell – September 2017
Stephanie has a natural talent for making everyone feel relaxed during the photo shoot. The photographs are truly wonderful and we are so glad we booked with Stephanie.

Thanks again Steph you are awesome
Ann & Alex Kincaid – September 2017
After having a brilliant family photo shoot with Stephanie, we booked her for our wedding recently. It was just a small, intimate wedding but the images she captured were priceless. She is so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Stephanie we have some beautiful memories of our day. Thank you Stephanie!
Louise Butcher – July 2017
Fantastic service worth every penny! Brilliant photos of all my family including the uncooperative children! Well done and many thanks.
Mark Hanscombe – June 2017
Stephanie has an incredible talent for helping people capture and remember very special moments for everyone who is at the event she’s photographing! She has a wonderful way with helping people feel at ease and capturing an entire event, respecting those who do not want to be photographed. I really appreciate Stephanie’s energy, kindness and generosity and she’s by far the best photographer I’ve met.
Martine McCahon – June 2017
We recently had a bluebell photoshoot and Stephanie captured some fantastic shots of our family in the woods. My children never normally want to smile for the camera, but Stephanie made them feel at ease and they were laughing away the whole time. All the photos were brilliant – it took us a long time to decide which ones to keep.
Fiona Kiely – May 2017
My baby loved his newborn photoshoot- Stephanie made him so relaxed. The photos look amazing. I would highly recommend.
Danielle Hornett – May 2017
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stephanie! She was equally brilliant with my 4 year old and my 2 week old – she made the photo shoot fun and relaxing for us all. The photographs she produced are beautiful!
Claire Templeton – May 2017

My kiddies and their best friends recently had a photoshoot with Stephanie amongst the bluebells in the local woods.
Her manner, her style and the way she makes everyone feel at ease are amazing and thus reflects on her taking the most beautiful pictures of my mischievous children.
Thank you so much Stephanie – the bluebell shoot is definitely a new yearly tradition for our family to see how the kiddies grow in the most gorgeous setting.
Book us in for next year!
Thank you so much again x
Donna Phelby Haigh – May 2017
We had a newborn session with Stephanie, she was absolutely amazing! Baby was completely at ease with her and we got some truly beautiful photos. Stephanie included my older two children in the shoot and was absolutely great with them, they are a pair of fidgets but you would never tell from the photos! Thank you Stephanie for capturing our little ones so perfectly xx
Charlotte Hanscombe – April 2017
(Images are private)
We had such a wonderful day with Stephanie, and she captured some unique and beautiful photos. We were all made to feel relaxed and the photos were unobtrusive. She also came up with some creative and fun ideas for photo opportunities which we thoroughly enjoyed. She was amazing with the little ones and got fab photos of our little boy who is 18 months old. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was so helpful and kind at every step of the way from tailoring our package and timings, to making us laugh for fun snaps, to solving any problems or issues. We love our pictures and will come back for the next event, or family shoot without doubt.
Penny Clements – March 2017
I booked Stephanie for a newborn photo shoot following some fabulous maternity photos that she took. The photo shoot was magical and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stephanie. She is a professional, lovely person, very accommodating and I am so pleased with the photos that have been produced. We have also had great comments from family and friends who have seen the photos taken.
Catherine Phillips – March 2017
I arranged for Steph to photograph our school so that we could use the pictures in our new brochure. She was brilliant with the staff and children, very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. I look forward to working with her in the future.
Chris Jackson – Head Teacher at Kings Farm Primary School – February 2017
Stephanie is a genius at capturing a child’s personality. She manages to snap that cheeky little smile and that sparkle in their eyes that you want to freeze forever. I highly recommend her
Charlotte Jackson – January 2017
Great photos. Stephanie made us all feel at ease and got our 5 year old giggling.
Estelle Hudson – January 2017
Stephanie came to do a newborn shoot which also included my 4 year old. She was brilliant with both boys especially when my 4 year old kept asking questions and asking when it was his turn! The photos were amazing. I am so pleased with them. I can highly recommend Stephanie and won’t hesitate to use her services again in the future.
Nyree Goodwin – December 2016
Such a lovely lady and a great photographer will definitely use again.
Marsha & Matt – December 2016
We recently booked Stephanie for a bump and new born shoot. She was incredible with both my 3 year old and newborn, making all of us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera so our photos didn’t end up looking posed and unnatural.
Stephanie’s service was fantastic, photographs beautiful and when we received the photos we had ordered on memory stick, the presentation and package it came with was thoughtful and unique. Stephanie was completely understanding of life with a newborn and gave us extra time to choose our photos, and her communication is always quick and clear and friendly.
I would highly recommend Stephanie and will definitely use her again and again as our family grows.
Kerry Knoesen – December 2016
Truly amazing – from start to finish Stephanie is friendly and professional and manages to make you feel at ease straight away – to totally capture a toddlers attention and have him smiling away in seconds was a dream – highly recommend this talented lady.
Jaime Blackburn – November 2016
Thoroughly enjoyed our newborn shoot with Stephanie. She combined professionalism and friendliness perfectly to make a really relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Amy took ages to fall asleep and cooperate but Stephanie wasn’t rushed or stressed and just waited for her to be ready (using a few magic whisperings and a wonderfully soft blanket along the way!). It felt like having a friend over to meet the new baby and Stephanie captured some gorgeous photos of our daughter.
I can’t wait for the next photoshoot….our 3 yr old son has been practising his ‘cheese’!!
Sarah Aldridge – November 2016
We recently booked Stephanie for our wedding photography and she was excellent, far exceeding our photography expectations.
She not only blended into the reception unobtrusively among our guests, but managed to organise and get beautiful photos of all 124 of us, the reception, church service, friends and family – she charmed and captured everyone, from the 2 year olds to the 80 year olds, including the family spaniels!
We would definitely recommend Stephanie’s services for wedding photos, we have a beautiful album of memories, the fun, events and personality of the day have been captured perfectly and without intruding at all on our day. Thank you very much Stephanie.
Becky Somerton – November 2016
Stephanie gave us a wonderful photo session, working with our four children and ourselves. The photo shoot was really quick, stress free and the children absolutely loved it. The results she got were amazing! When we saw our photos on the online page, we were blown away by the quality – but more importantly – how Stephanie had captured the personalities of us all, exactly right! We would recommend Stephanie’s services to any family who was looking to get a few formal or informal shots taken. We will definitely be returning – and we’ll also look to give our friends a gift of a photo shoot too! Thank you Stephanie!
Garry Ratcliffe – October 2016
We had a family photo shoot with Stephanie in our local park. It was great fun and Stephanie captured some lovely shots. We are very pleased with the photos and would highly recommend her
Emma Dawes – October 2016
Stephanie was fantastic with my son, she was the ‘baby whisperer’, he was relaxed and so was my daughter. Couldn’t recommend anyone better!
Nicola Springett – October 2016
We used Stephanie for the second time to do a cake smash to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday. Same as the first time, she instantly put our daughter at ease which enabled her to get the most fantastic pictures that we will always cherish. Thank you
Leah Halliwell – October 2016
Stephanie was fantastic with our new born baby and the photos we’re brilliant so much so we’ve booked up for her ‘watch you grow’ package. Having the photos taken at home was a really beneficial as it took away any stress. The whole shoot was relaxed and not at all rushed. I would highly recommend Stephanie.
Angela Martin – September 2016
We really enjoyed our family photo shoot with Stephanie. She was brilliant with our son Joseph and he loved performing for the camera!
Rachel Tulett – September 2016
Stephanie managed to accommodate us for a Newborn shoot at short notice as I hadn’t planned it during pregnancy.
We had an amazing shoot im our own home.Stephanie was amazing with our daughter, so patient, professional and knowledgeable. The pictures are amazing and family and friends love them too.
Great value and quality. Little suprise touches just make it all the more special.
Can’t wait for our next shoot and would definite recommend. X
Natasha Phillpott – September 12016
My husband booked a surprise family photo shoot with Stephanie as part of my recent birthday celebrations and it was fantastic. My four year old son is not typically cooperative when a camera comes out but Stephanie made him and us feel at ease. We also did the cake smash which the kids loved. The photos themselves were superb and reasonably priced. We would certainly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for family photos.
Sarah Macey – September 2016
I needed some promo shots for a book launch; professional but not stiff. Stephanie’s photos strike just the right balance and the shoot was great fun, too.
Beverley Harvey – September 2016
Stephanie photographed our wedding for us, she was so friendly & helpful all the guests commented on how great she was and the photos we are just over the moon with! She captured some lovely memories for us.
Thank you xx
Lisa Cope – August 2016
Stephanie is absolutely amazing at what she does we were over the moon with our photo shoot and couldn’t wait to see the gallery and we were not disappointed they were gorgeous thank you so much. We will be recommending you to our friends and family. X
Carla Head Miller – August 2016
Stephanie took some fantastic pictures for us. It was a great photo session, everyone enjoyed themselves. Will definitely be using Stephanie in the future once the little ones have grown up a bit!
Susan Gravells – August 2016
I cannot fault Stephanie. Professional, friendly, flexible and an all round fantastic photographer. A very enjoyable shoot at West Malling Manor Park and some fantastic photographs of my two children. After having to postpone the original date for the shoot due to my daughter’s illness, Stephanie was very flexible in accommodating my request to rebook the shoot. Thanks so much. I’m over the moon with the results.
Russell Sharrard – August 2016
Stephanie first did our engagement shoot last year at our wedding venue and we couldn’t have been more delighted with the results. We knew we could expect amazing shots on our wedding day but Stephanie surpassed herself. We love every image. She has managed to capture every aspect of our magical day in images we will treasure forever. We cannot recommend Stephanie highly enough. Her personality instantly relaxes you so she captures the best shots of everyone – young and old. A big thank you also to Stephanie’s second photographer Sarah Capon
Richard France – August 2016
Knowing Stephanie personally, i had no worries whatsoever about any of my photos! She kept me calm all the time I was getting ready and all my guests have said how friendly and warm hearted she is! Stephanie is professional and her 2nd photographer Sarah was also very friendly and helpful…especially when it came to doing my dress up!! my son isn’t the easiest to photograph and Stephanie and Sarah both helped in making him laugh that his photos turned out better than I could ever imagine! I can’t thank either ladies enough and would recommend to anyone!!
Georgi Wilkes – July 2016
Trying to get my stoic, camera shy family to smile, leave alone have fun at a photo shoot is some task and Stephanie more than managed it.
She arranged a great location and took time and effort to get great photos of us all.
Mum and Dad are still picking their way through the photos trying hard to narrow it down to the ones they like as they are all fab.
I would highly recommend Stephanie and hope to use her again myself in the future.
Elizabeth Baines – June 2016
Such a lovely, friendly, relaxed and yet professional service. We really enjoyed our family photoshoot and were thrilled with the results. Only difficult part was selecting which images! Thank you Stephanie, think you’ll be seeing a lot more of us over the years. x
Laura Jane Rawdon – June 2016
We’ve had our newborn and sitting shoot with Stephanie now, and I’m so looking forward to the first birthday shoot! Stephanie is fab with our son and with us, helping us get some really lovely pictures – we always end up taking ages to decide which to take as we want them all!
Janani Joharatnam-Patel – May 2016
We are really pleased with the photos from our session with Stephanie, and the session itself was lots of fun. Our children had a great time! I think the package is excellent value and the experience and service top notch. Would highly recommend.
Nina Hawtin – April 2016
Really loved the cake smash photoshoot we did with Stephanie for our daughters first birthday. Stephanie was really good at interacting with my one year old and had a lot of patience with getting her to sit still for more than two seconds to be able to get a photo of her! We also had some pictures with my three year old and again getting them to both cooperate was a bit of a task, but one of the things I liked most about Stephanie was that she was willing to take her time to make sure she got some good shots and I am so pleased with the outcome. The quality of the photos really show that Stephanie has spent time on editing and making them perfect, the timing of everything was efficient and professional. Will definitely recommend and will use again in the future.
Kayleigh Vassall – March 2016
Stephanie was very flexible and efficient to work with and created some lovely images. My husband and I were very self conscious in front of the camera and added to that mix was a three year old and a four month old. I was amazed and reassured by how well Stephanie interacted with my girls, very impressive indeed. Her sensitivity and intuitive handling of all of us bore fruit in some lovely images that I can’t wait to give as Mother’s Day gifts and have in my home. The best compliment I can pay Stephanie is to say that I have already booked her for cake smash session later in the year and will certainly ask her to photograph my family again. She turned something we were slightly dreading into a fun, relaxed experience and so created some beautiful images.
Charlotte Davies – March 2016
Thank you Stephanie for producing the wonderful images of my two daughters at a great location.
The whole experience from booking, through to the actual shoot and the delivery of the images was very good indeed and which Stephanie made as easy as possible. Stephanie is friendly, easy to communicate with but equally very professional. My husband and I are very pleased with the quality of the images and how natural they look and would definitely recommend Stephanie Chapman Photography to friends and family’
Suki Parry – February 2016
We didn’t think our little man would be out of hospital early enough for a newborn shoot, so when I contacted Stephanie last minute, right before Christmas, I was not expecting to be able to have a shoot! But I was over the moon when you came down (two days after Christmas no less) to our house and created a professional mini studio complete with lots of outfits/props in our lounge!! Our little man barely made a peep, you handled him with such gentleness and care and achieved some stunning pictures as a result due to your ‘baby whispering’ technique. Being a new mother, I felt no worry and completely at ease with you posing and moving my precious baby around in different ways!! So, so worth every (very reasonably priced!) penny – thank you!! 110% recommended!!
Chloe Langshaw – February 2016
Stephanie was absolutely brilliant with our son and we got some wonderful pictures. It was a lovely, easy experience and we thought she was great. We definitely recommend!
Sarah Fenner – February 2016
Working with Stephanie was a wonderful experience. She helped us select a beautiful place for our outdoor shoot, and she captured some amazing images of my family and particularly of our two kids, one of the best I’ve got of them together. She has an easy, relaxed manner that put everyone at ease and her professionalism is top notch. She turned the images around quickly and they were available within a week and a half. We ended up using three of them for our holiday card, they were so lovely, and I’ve received many compliments on the main one of the kids. I will definitely use Stephanie again when we do our next family shoot. Thoroughly enjoyable and great result!
Liz Pink-Bell – January 2016
We were really looking forward to our newborn shoot. Stephanie was very friendly and had a lot of patience with our little girl. She really knew how to soothe and calm our baby and we even learned a few tricks from her. The photos captured of our little one and of us as a family are amazing. We can’t wait for our next shoot. Highly recommended.
Victoria Chu Walters – January 2016
What a wonderful experience! Stephanie was like the “baby whisperer” having such a calming affect on our baby to get the photos. In fact she seemed to have the same affect on my other half who normally hates having his picture taken and had originally moaned when I booked the shoot- he was even suggesting other poses by the end of it. Loved the app she created for us as a little extra touch. Very professional and quick at responding to messages and turning the photos around. Would definitely use again. Thank you!
Marie Spendlove – January 2016
I wanted something different from the normal studio photos that I have done every year for my grandchildren to give to their mum for Christmas and Stephanie was excellent. We met in the local park and we followed the children round while they had fun and the result was, fantastic photos. Would highly recommend her. And when Stephanie promptly sent the usb stick with my photos, she sent a gift for the children as well. Very thoughtful. They can’t wait for the next time!
Cathy Fennell – December 2015
Stephanie was fantastic, a very friendly face and we were instantly at ease, great with our little Holly and the results were absolutely stunning. Very highly recommended by us and we will use again im certain! Keep up the good work!
Stephen Mayo – December 2015
Stephanie recently photographed our winter ball and ‘suprise’ wedding. She was fantastic and the photos were amazing. Stephanie was discreet and managed to capture the whole evening so well. She has helped created unique memories that we will have forever.
Sarah Chapman – December 2015
Working with Stephanie was a wonderful experience. We booked Stephanie to cover an important social engagement for around twenty people. Not only were the resultant photos stunning, but Stephanie was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. I highly recommend her.
Beverley Harvey – December 2015
Stephanie did a newborn photoshoot for our daughter last week, and the photos are absolutely stunning. She was so good with handling and posing Erin, and my husband and I found her to be very professional. I will definitely be recommending her to our friends and family! Thank you Stephanie for your fantastic work!
Claire Taylor – November 2015
Amazing, amazing, amazing!!!
Stephanie is not only a great photographer but a lovely person too – she was friendly, funny, personable as well as being brilliantly professional and a baby whisperer to my newborn!
Thank you Stephanie.
Louise Davis – November 2015
Love working with Stephanine, so organised, putting everyone at ease, listens to what you want. The photo’s speak for themselves and will do for years to come. Highly recommended.
Hannah King – November 2015
Brilliant! We had a cake smash photo shoot for my daughter’s first birthday. Despite my little one not being on form on the day, Stephanie still managed to create some lovely images that we will treasure.
Amanda Flint – November 2015
Stephanie has done numerous shoots for me over the years. I am married to a professional photographer yet Stephanie can capture images as only she can. I don’t know if it’s her passion or she’s found her calling. Keep trying to find excuses for another photography session!
Caroline Bridger – November 2015
Stephanie was so warm and friendly, she made the photo shoot relaxing and fun. She was excellent with both my 3 year old and 2 month old, and has been helpful and professional from our initial query to receipt of the photos. The photos are excellent and we’re really looking forward to the next shoot.
Hannah Utting – November 2015
Thank you Stephanie for capturing some wonderful pictures of us in Manor Park. Your knowledge of where & what makes a great picture was superb. We all had such a lovely afternoon, now for the hard part choosing our photos!
Vikki Bowman – October 2015
Stephanie came to our house to do our newborn shoot and she was a natural! Stephanie made us all feel really comfortable and was amazing with our two year old son who wasn’t so keen on having his photo taken. We now have some really lovely photos to cherish forever. I will definitely be using Stephanie again in the future and would highly recommend her.
Thank you again!
Hayley Roberts – October 2015
My partner and I were looking for a professional photographer to take photos of our wonderful newborn twins. We unfortunately (or fortunately!) missed Bounty Photographers at the hospital, and having called them three times for help, just hit a brick wall.
Having found Stephanie Chapman on the Internet, I called and left a voicemail and within hours I had a call back, information emailed across and then an appointment booked. She is super efficient and communicates effectively, which was an immediate positive.
The shoot itself was excellent, Every parent is super protective of their newborns, but we felt completely relaxed with our babies in Stephanie’s care. It was a relaxed environment created, not rushed in any way which made it very enjoyable.
The quality of the photos received were just beautiful, and easy to access on the website. To also receive an App for our phones with our wonderful babies on to carry wherever we go was a lovely touch.
I would strongly recommend Stephanie for future shoots, you will not be disappointed by the effectiveness, professionalism and personal touch.
Kay Cossington – September 2015
We are utterly delighted with the photos Stephanie took of our newborn son, as well as the family group pictures, so much so we are running out of wall space! We loved every image and Stephanie herself is a real sweetheart, so brilliant with newborns.. You can tell she has studied with midwives etc as she knew just how to calm and soothe our little boy. Stephanie is a true professional and we look forward to working with her again as the boys grow up…Thank you thank you again
Kellee Norris – September 2015
Fabulous, relaxing, articulate and great with children. Truly captured the beauty of our newborn girl which will we treasure forever
Kim Etherington – September 2015
Thank you so much for our amazing pictures of Harry!
I can’t believe how relaxed I felt during the whole photo shoot and how Harry slept through most of it, you really made us feel comfortable and reassured through the whole process and can’t wait for our family shoot.
Printed the pics for my mom and she has showed all the doctors and nurses that have been looking after her it’s like he’s famous!
Chantalle Petersen – August 2015
Stephanie managed to capture the essence of our day perfectly.
Her lovely photos are a permanent reminder of just how special our day was.
Jan Kelly – August 2015
Stephanie came and did a bump shoot with me followed by a family shoot to include my partner, daughter and newborn son. We are all thrilled with the pictures, well thrilled would be an understatement they are just fantastic.
We’ve had so many lovely comments too from friends and family that she really captured some special moments and I have never seen such patience from anyone when dealing with children, and I teach! Well done Stephanie and thank you will be back for some more pictures in the future without a doubt.
Alexandra Lawerence – August 2015
Stephanie came to our home and took some beautiful photos of my daughters and also some lovely family shots with myself and my husband. Stephanie is warm and friendly and was incredibly patient with a baby and toddler who didn’t want to sit still! We are so pleased with the photos, thank you Stephanie.
Katherine Keane – August 2015
Stephanie was absolutely amazing as our wedding photographer from start to finish!! She made the entire process so simple and pain free. From arrival on the morning of the wedding and spending the morning snapping away while also helping all of us out with drinks etc, I knew we were in for a wonderful set of photographs.
My husband would be very conscious of lots of photographs being taken and on numerous occasions he noted that it felt like Stephanie wasn’t even there. She was capturing the shots as the day went on but all the while letting us enjoy our day and the company of our family and friends. We cannot recommend her highly enough!!!! x
Michelle Bishop – July 2015
Stephanie took some amazing pictures of my daughter. She was very professional and friendly and had all the tricks to get her off to sleep to captures some lovely images. Would highly recommend her. Thanks Stephanie x
Gemma Guttridge – July 2015
I can wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie and we have already done so to a number of our friends. Stephanie made the whole process very easy, she put our daughter completely at ease and we have a set of wonderful pictures which we’ll treasure forever.
Jackie Janssen – July 2015
Thank you Stephanie for the this great double-photoshoot (bump to baby) event! We enjoyed both sessions very much and are very happy with the results too! We think your enthusiastic and professional approach to these important family mile-stones is exactly what your customers need. We will be confident and delighted to recommend you to our friends.
All the best and we would be happy to work with you again in the future!
Nora Privoczki-Kunkli – May & June 2015
Really enjoyed our photoshoots with Stephanie. With our newborn baby she was so calm with him and knew exactly what to do, giving us some amazing photographs.
We had bump shoot previously and we can not wait until our baby is sitting up for Stephanie to visit again and take some more amazing photos.
Alexandra Coombes – May & June 2015
Stephanie took some beautiful photos of our 6 week old daughter. The whole process, from first contact with her to the session itself and beyond, has been so smooth, simple and professional.
The shoot was really enjoyable – it is clear that Stephanie is not only a very talented photographer, but also has a real knack in dealing with babies; we even picked up some tips on how to keep our baby calm! We now have an incredible selection of beautiful photos of our baby which we will treasure forever!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Stephanie to anyone looking for beautiful photos of their baby. Thank you so much Stephanie!
Rachel Grant – June 2015
Stephanie took wonderful photos our 5 1/2 month old daughter. She made the shoot thoroughly enjoyable and we would highly recommend her.
Georgie Thornton – June 2015
Thank you so much Stephanie for capturing great photos of the Ball family even with the weather being cold, you would never have noticed as they all look so natural!! It was very hard to choose our photos with them all being so good. It was a friendly, relaxed photoshoot and we will definitely be recommended to our friends.
Daniel Ball – June 2015
My husband and I had absolute confidence Stephanie would produce wonderful photographs of our newborn daughter! What was delivered after our session excelled our expectations, each and every photo was so beautiful and we are very grateful for Stephanie’s expertise, professionalism, patience and genuine enthusiasm!! Thank you Stephanie!! x
Jennifer Yen Lai – May 2015
Stephanie was flexible and very accommodating from the very beginning. We had two little ones, five and seven years, included in the shoot and they were easily at ease with Stephanie. When we received the photos and were reviewing with the kids, our youngest got to the end and said where are the photos of Stephanie? 🙂 Stephanie naturally felt part of the group!
The quality was exceptional and someone I would not hesitate to recommend, I know we will certainly be using her again
Rhea Lewis – May 2015
Stephanie was so great at making our little one feel comfortable, and we got some amazing pics. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and will definitely be using her again!
Paul Smith – April 2015
Stephanie recently spent the day with us at my parents’ wedding blessing to celebrate 40 years of marriage. She was wonderful with all the guests, but particular praise should go to how she was with our 4 young boys. She had endless patience, was part of the celebrations without being invasive and all our guests commented on how friendly and professional she is.
The photos she has produced are amazing and nothing has been too much trouble, from briefing the job spec to advising on framing and printing. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Stephanie and will be looking to spend time with her again as we celebrate other family milestones in the near future.
Hayley McLintock – April 2015
Stephanie recently took some beautiful pictures of my newborn daughter and toddler – capturing his cheeky personality to a tee, on a day he was not in a particularly co-operative mood! She has an incredible talent and is a real pleasure to have around, making the whole experience a joy. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Julia Baxter – April 2015
Stephanie came to our home and took the most lovely pictures of my daughters, myself and our little dog. We couldn’t be more pleased with ALL the results. She captured the essense of our little family. Stephanie herself was lovely to talk to and made us all feel very comfortable, her sense of humour together with that wonderful accent made for a fantastic evening of photos, laughter and fun! We can’t thank you enough for such a joyous experience.
Karen Goodlad – April 2015
Stephanie recently took some beautiful pictures of my newborn daughter and toddler – capturing his cheeky personality to a tee, on a day he was not in a particularly co-operative mood! She has an incredible talent and is a real pleasure to have around, making the whole experience a joy. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Julia Baxter – April 2015
We commissioned Stephanie for a family photography shoot just after our son was born late last year. It has taken me until now to write this review because the pictures of our children were so unbelievably fabulous I couldn’t decide which images to buy! Stephanie has an instinctive rapport with children, and it was wonderful to see our shy little 3 year old blossom in front of the camera as a result.
Everyone who has seen the photos comments on just how perfectly Stephanie captured my daughter’s personality. My son was only a matter of weeks old at the time of the shoot and I was so impressed with how gentle and professional Stephanie was with him. It is very evident that she remains focused on the children’s safety and comfort at all times. I cannot recommend Stephanie highly enough – I have amazingly beautiful photos of my two children that I will treasure forever. Even after taking a good couple of months to try and decide which photos to go for (and I have to commend Stephanie for her patience with me!), I still couldn’t decide and so in addition to the prints we got as part of the package, we bought the whole lot.
I was expecting a CD-rom through the post in a jiffy bag but instead I got a beautifully packaged memory stick in its own presentation box which is just another example of Stephanie’s eye for detail and focus on client service. I am just waiting for the children to get a bit bigger so that I can book her for another session and Stephanie, I promise that this time I will pick the photos faster!! If you are considering booking a shoot with Stephanie then take it from me – you will be DELIGHTED with the end results and you will wish you had done it sooner. Thank you so much Stef!
Louise Robinson – March 2015
We couldn’t have been happier with the photos that Stephanie captured of our six month old daughter. She provided such a relaxed atmosphere and was very patient whilst we got Evie changed, fed, tidied up etc and it was great being able to have the photos done in our own home. We will definitely be booking Stephanie for all future professional photos of Evie. Thank you so much Stephanie.
Emily Mc Nally – February 2015
Stephanie took some gorgeous photos of our newborn baby girl Isla. She was extremely patient in getting Isla relaxed and got her in some adorable poses. Stephanie was extremely professional, it was obvious to see that she loves what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone. We ended up buying all the pictures that she took, now we just have to find somewhere to put them all!
Zoe Auster – March 2015
Stephanie is a true professional! She was absolutely amazing with our son, and produced the most stunning pictures of him! We ended up buying them all as they were so incredible. Couldn’t of asked for better!! My fiancé and I loved Stephanie that much that we booked her for our upcoming wedding there and then!! Can’t wait for her to snap some wedding photos and savour more precious memories. Thank you so much Stephanie!! I couldn’t recommend anyone better
Jenny Hill – February 2015
Stephanie got some amazing photos of our baby girl. She was so patient with her, and we all felt so relaxed with her which made the whole experience enjoyable. We are so thrilled with the photos and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to get some beautiful family photos they can treasure forever.
Amy & Martin Piggott – February 2015
Stephanie was so patient in trying to get my 5 month old little girl to smile on a very unsmily day!! Even though Saphia was making it difficult she managed to get some beautiful pictures. Thank you so much, lovely photos xxx
Louise Bolton – February 2015
Stephanie you are amazing at what you do. Thanks again for the amazing photos you captured at Noah’s newborn photography photoshoot. You were so caring and gentle with Noah. I will definitely be booking you when he gets a wee bit older.
Kiara Ballard – January 2015
We recently booked a newborn photography shoot with Stephanie and I would highly recommend. From the convenience of having her visit our home, to how confident and patient she was handling and settling our daughter. She immediately put us all at ease and is so friendly. The photos were gorgeous and will be treasured forever. I definitely plan to rebook for another session when our little one gets a little bit older.
Karen Reid – January 2015
We are so thrilled with the results of the photo shoot you did for us. You managed to capture the spirit of my family. These are photos we are going to treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you!
Mina McPhee – December 2014
Stephanie is so lovely and was absolutely great with my little boy. She managed to coax some smiles out of him even though he was being grumpy. The photos are lovely and Stephanie got them to us really quick. Have recommended you to family and friends
Rachel Maw – December 2014
Stephanie is the ultimate professional and managed to change the mood of my typical teenage kids from stroppy and moody with hair and make up emergencies to two kids with cheeky grins and as if butter wouldn’t melt! The results are amazing and we are delighted that she has captured some very natural but memorable shots, thank you so much for our beautiful family photographs, you have a great talent.
Mary Ainley – December 2014
We had a brilliant mini photo session with Stephanie last month. She instantly put us all at ease and both my girls warmed to her straight away so she was able to get lovely natural smiley pictures. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Stephanie for family photo shoots and will definitely be visiting her again for more photos next year!
Catherine Williams – December 2014
Had a fab mini session with Stephanie last weekend – excellent results, was made to feel at ease and it wasn’t rushed at all. Stephanie was great with the children.
Would recommend Stephanie’s services without hesitation.
Catherine Gethin – December 2014
We had a session with Stephanie a week ago. My younger son was bouncing round the room most of the session, so I wasn’t sure how good the photos would be. I was stunned when we saw the photos- she has captured our two boys beautifully, all in a mini session!!
Stephanie was lovely to work with. I was also very surprised with how quickly our photos were delivered, with them dropping through our letterbox in the evening, the day I chose our photos on email.
Thank you Stephanie- I hope we will see you again in the future to catch our little boys growing up!
Louise Fox – December 2014
Having previously had a photography workshop with Stef (which was fab), we thought it was about time we had a family shoot! We attended one of stef’s mini shoots. She put us all at ease and captured some lovely pictures. The only problem was short-listing them!! Highly recommend.
Heidi Easby – December 2014
Stephanie took some amazing pictures of my little boy (and us!) She was so lovely with him and managed to get lots of smiles despite him being tired! Will definitely be going back for some more shots when he’s a bit older. Wish I had found her earlier to get some newborn photos, if a brother or sister comes along we will be booking in!
Liz Coombs – November 2014
Stephanie took gorgeous photos of our newborn son and his big sister. She was really flexible and accommodating and bonded really well with both children to put them at ease in front of the camera. It was a fun experience for all of us. We will definitely use again and recommend to others!
Kelly Coleman – November 2014
Fantastic photographer who makes the experience enjoyable and has given us beautiful photos that we’ll treasure for years to come. Stef has a natural gift for putting both kids (inc babies) and adults at ease in front of the camera and it shows in the pictures. She even thought to have treats for the children and our daughter has been talking about it ever since! I think we’ll be back for more as our kids grow up, memories like this are very precious and Stef helps to capture them perfectly!
Helen Cook – November 2014
Stephanie recently captured some amazing photos of me and my family, all the photos were beautiful and she has helped us to create some lovely memories. Stephanie was great with all the children and managed to get them involved throughout the morning. I would recommend Stephanie to anybody that was looking for a photographer! 🙂
Hannah Framcomb – October 2014
Thank you so much for coming to Imogen’s party today. You were fantastic & we can’t wait to see all the photos. We’ve had lots of praise from lots of VERY impressed parents. Your patience & fun way of working with so many children exceeded our expectations. We’ll definitely be booking you again. Alison x
Alison Lee – October 2014
Fantastic relaxed atmosphere. Lovely top quality photos. You can’t ask for more. Thanks Stephanie.
Lucy Fossil – October 2014
Stephanie recently visited our home to photograph our two children, myself and my husband. She immediately put both children at ease, trying to find out what they were interested in to engage them whilst doing the shoot.
She did the most fabulous job that day, creating some beautiful family photographs. She was tireless in her work, not easy with a 6 year old who knows everything and an 18 month old who will only do her own thing! Thank you Stef for capturing some beautiful moments to treasure.
Sarah Roy – October 2014
Stephanie was lovely!! So professional and very patient and clearly knew her stuff. The pictures she took of our 11 day old little boy are just gorgeous. We will definitely be looking to use Stephanie again for some family photography in the future based on our overall experience and quality of pictures.
Abigail Waring – October 2014
We first met Stephanie at the kings hill school fete. In such a short shoot Stephanie captured some fantastic moments of our two sons. We then went on and booked her for a shoot in October where Stephanie came to our home and took some beautiful photos of all of us. Stephanie is very professional and very patient with little ones!! Very friendly too
Lisa Beale – October 2014
Stephanie took beautiful pictures of my two week old daughter Ayva, she is a lovely lady and very professional! I would highly recommend her and will be using her again!
Amy Smith – October 2014
Stephanie captured some precious pictures of my 3 week old daughter. The shoot was relaxing and Stephanie’s patience was amazing, I really enjoyed every moment.

I will definitely be coming back to you in the near future. Thank you again x

Michaela Daoudi – September 2014
Stephanie is so intuitive when it comes to taking photographs. She took breathtaking photos of my bump in a beautiful natural environment.
She is so much fun and i loved every minute of it! Thanks Stef!!!
Karyn Schafer Campbell – July 2014
I booked Stephanie to take some photos of my baby bump and baby shower. The whole process was easy from booking the photo session to taking photos on the day. Stephanie arrived at my home and immediately put me at ease with her friendly and professional nature. With being 8 months pregnant she was always concerned that I was comfortable, which resulted with us getting some great photos on the day which capture the beauty of being pregnant!
I would highly recommend Stephanie and I’m looking forward to part 2, photos of the baby once it arrives.
Stephanie, thanks for the great photos and being part of the baby shower. Again, your photos really captured the day.
Shirley Grant – May 2014
Thank you so much, Stephanie! We had a great time during this shoot! Looking forward to the next time….and there will be a next time!
Carmela Watts – April 2014
“I booked Stephanie to take some photos of my sisters and myself and what a fantastic photoshoot we had. Not only did Stephanie put us all at ease immediately, but because of that she has captured us beautifully. We are struggling to decide which photos to chose they are all so amazing. It was a wonderful and very special experience and I will be booking her again for another family photography shoot. I would most certainly recommend Stephanie to everyone. Thanks again for capturing our fabulous memories. Priceless!”
Angela Reily – March 2014
‘I now have some gorgeous pictures of my 21 month old who generally won’t sit still! Stef was very patient and interacted brilliantly with him and the results were amazing. I will definitely be getting her to do a second session when number two comes along.’
Chloe Ayling – February 2014
‘It was definitely a ‘fresh’ January morning for us all. We, including our 4 months old twins Matthew and Laura, warmed to Stephanie straight away as she stepped through the door.
Stephanie’s photos of them are priceless, capturing the special moments for us as new parents and Matthew and Laura’s characters. These moments will certainly be cherished for a long time.
Through her lens, we can see those twinkles in their eyes, innocent yet mischievous smiles and their very different characters developing at 4 months. The quality of the photos were excellent and a super quick turnaround on the editing as well.
As soon as photos were available online, grandparents from Hong Kong and Australia can view them straight away. This was especially appreciated by the family who live thousands of miles away. We look forward to hanging the big canvases up in our new home in Australia soon. Well done and thank you, Stephanie’
Carey Harrop – February 2014
‘Stephanie came to our house to take some photo’s of my son & daughter. Stephanie’s very easy going nature meant that they were immediately at ease. She made it a very fun experience for them both which resulted in some fastastic pictures of giggles and cheeky smiles. I wanted something that would represent the characters of my children and I think Stephanie captured this perfectly. She listened to what I wanted and not only delivered but surpassed my expectations. I now have some beautiful prints hung up around my house which truly reflect my little family. Thank you.’
Marie Norton – February 2014
‘I was so happy with the maternity photos Stef took, they were very elegant and classy. She captured that chapter of my life brilliantly and I will cherish them forever.
We have had two photo-shoots since our little man arrived in November. Stef’s relaxed manner put our baby boy at ease straight away resulting in amazing pictures, one of which is pride of place on our mantelpiece. Stef is able to capture people effortlessly, no need for posing. Her obvious love of photography shines through. Thank you Stef for all the amazing images you have given us over the past year.
Caroline & Andy Maconachie – February 2014
“We found Stephanie to be a pleasure to deal with, so relaxed and super at relating to “little people”! Her shots were beautiful and captured our little man’s personality perfectly. Stephanie also braved the beach on a cold day in January for some amazing shots! Her eye for a good photo is one very special talent – we would highly recommend her!”
Aoife Colgan – January 2014
‘We are absolutely thrilled with the photographs Stef took of our little girl for her first birthday. She made Annabel feel completely relaxed and at ease, and got some gorgeous shots that really captured Annabel’s personality. She even managed to get some really lovely family shots. Once again, Stef produced gorgeous images for us to treasure. Thank you!’
Claire & Alan Pettigrew – January 2014
‘Thank you so much Stephanie for the amazing photos. I just looked at them all on the website and cannot choose a favourite. You’re amazing!’
Lorraine Fagan – January 2014
‘Stephanie came to our home to photograph our two girls. She is professional and friendly and immediately put the girls at ease which made the shoot easy to do. Stephanie had great ideas for the photos and lots of tricks to resolve any issues. Prompt after-shoot too. Have already recommended Stephanie to friends.’
Jenny Regan – December 2013
‘Stephanie is so talented! Despite our little ones being poorly on the day of our shoot, she still managed to make it fun and capture some amazing shots!’
Sarah Linklater – November 2013
‘In just 4 hours, Stephanie taught us the basic theory of using our camera properly, then helped us practice the theory whilst trying different equipment and techniques, and finally the skill of editing. It was a brilliant tutorial and great fun. Stephanie is very engaging and a brilliant teacher. We would highly recommend! ‘
Heidi & Chris Easby – October 2013
‘Stef has done 2 shoots of out family- one when our son was first born and the second on his 2nd birthday. Stef has a great eye for shots and works so well with the youngsters. The pictures were so natural. Our son and nephews loved her & she was able to get the best out of them. We are always so happy with the resulting pictures and turn to Stef whenever we want out shots updated.’
Kate Dawes – October 2013
Thank you so much for the photos you took of Annabel. They are absolutely stunning and we are thrilled with them
Claire and Alan Pettigrew – April 2013
“Stephanie, thank you so much for the wonderful pictures you took of our new family last week. They are fantastic and we will cherish them always.
You really captured our intense love for our beautiful little angel Charlotte and we will be calling on your talent for the Christening for sure!”
“Stephanie, thank you so much for the fantastic pictures you took of our Wedding Day. They are beautiful and we really struggled to choose our favourites out of all the ones you took!
We had nothing but fantastic comments on the pictures and for the people who joined us on the day, everyone said how friendly and brilliant you were.
You really captured our special day in a way we can cherish forever, and we would not hesitate to call on you when future photo opportunities arise. Words really can not sum up how grateful we both are to you”
Kelly and Danny Peoples
“Stef has a complete natural ability to make everyone feel completely at ease during a shoot. Our little girl Charlotte warmed to Stef immediately and as a result we now have some gorgeous photos which truly capture her personality.
Stef also managed to capture a stunning photo of our 4 month old son looking so happy. Many thanks Stef”
Stef spent one morning at our home taking photos of our girls while we tried to get them to sit still and smile for more than two seconds at a time!
We needn’t have worried about them posing as Stef was able to get the best shots while they were being themselves and having fun.
It was a pleasure to have Stef do this for us and the photos we now have are gorgeous and have captured their personalities beautifully. Thank you Stef!
“Stef, We just want to say how amazing you are! You captured such great moments of our big day and we can not thank you enough!!
So many people have commented about how fantastic you were on the day, so friendly yet efficient in getting those all important pictures.
I will be throwing your name around to all our friends as you are amazing at what you do and we will definitely be calling on you to do our baby pictures!!
Thanks again Stef, you really helped make our day.”
