Cake Smash and Splash Photography
At my cosy little home studio in Hull, Kingswood
Samantha Jade Photography
Alice and her family have been visiting my studio for over 5 years! Her Mummy is a very loyal client of mine and I'd like to say has become a friend also. Her big brother (who is always amazing during his photography sessions) has had many photography sessions with me at the studio, from portrait sessions, cake smashes, all types of mini sessions, sibling sessions, you name it! Alice is also following in his foot steps.
Portraits are really important to my client, she can not get enough of them. Children grow and change so quick, so getting those professional photographs are a priority for my client, and most families who return over and over again.
Here are some photographs from Alice's Cake Smash and Splash session here at Samantha Jade Photography (Hull).
Is they a better way to celebrate a 1st birthday? A whole giant gorgeous, yummy cake to eat and play with! For most babies, it's their first experience of tasting something sweet and capturing their expressions is a fab way of marking that 1st birthday milestone. My cake smash sessions can be almost any theme of your choice, I have lots of themes to choose from however I am always open to suggestions should you have an idea in mind about what theme you'd like.
It's always a pleasure to have a customer back in my photography studio numerous times, and watching their little bundles of joy grow. Drew's had multi photo shoots with me, with his aunts and nannas, cousins and his mummy! He is such a little cutie and amazing to photograph!
When his Mummy asked for this themed cake smash, I was all over it. I do love a good neutral themed set up and just how gorgeous is this cake smash and splash.
On Friday 16th April little Freddie visited the studio for his 1st birthday cake smash and splash photo-shoot!
Prior to the shoot, Freddie's Mum had mentioned in the pre cake smash questionnaire that Freddie was a little shy... I think you will see from the photographs you are about to see that Freddie... was not shy. Freddie had LOTS OF FUN!
I always start my birthday sessions with a mini portrait shoot, which also include a few props for little one to play about with and on. Usually, for a shy child, the little moon stool works great for the curious mind...
The mini photo-shoot can include siblings and parents at an additional cost, however there is no extra charge with the top birthday package for this.
These mini sessions last about 10-15 minutes, a great way for me to quickly learn how your baby reacts to me, and for me to get to know them quickly!
Freddie didn't eat much of his cake, and that's ok, because this cake is for playing with and that's exactly what Freddie did! It's all about capturing their experience with something that is meant to be their first experience of something sweet and sugary.

Look how beautiful these images are.
A big thank you to Andrea at Hello Photography also for second shooting for me.

Over a month late, but better than never.
The wedding of Lauren and Lee, who married 6th July 2019 at the Guildhall in Hull.
I have been photographing this family in my studio for around 5/6 years now so it was a pleasure to of been asked to capture their wedding day. This couple have become more like friends than clients over the year, and it was so nice to be able to capture their wedding day unfold and deliver them precious memories to treasure.

It's that cold time of the year now, and what perfect setting for a birthday cake smash, is a winter themed cake smash and splash. Hull isn't great for weather, and we don't really get much snow, but for one day only, we had some snow (not real of course) for our winter themed cake smash, for two little twins!
How exciting! Twins in the studio! It was definitely a good call asking my assistant Codie to come and lend a helping hand. I haven't really had chance to blog much recently as we are so busy in the studio but currently, my little man Tommy is sleeping so I have a spare half hour to show you our wonderful winter wonderland themed cake smash with two little twins.
This beautiful backdrop is supplied by PropsforTogs and WE LOVE IT!
With all our cake smash and splash photography packages, we always do a mini portrait session before things get messy.
and then we finish off in a lovely white roll top bath, how very posh ;)

Cake Smash Photography, Hull - Samantha Jade Photography
We had Theodores cake smash and splash with Samantha jade a few weeks ago. I can’t thank you enough for such a lovely afternoon with our baby. The photos are fantastic. You was very professional and very welcoming and patient with Theo. He had a great time and memories we can treasure in these beautiful photos. I would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of having their baby’s 1st birthday with a cake smash and splash. Such a lovely and fun thing to do with your baby. Cant wait to get my pictures on the wall. Xx
September came round pretty quick which meant for me, back to routine. I came into September with lots of editing to do after a pretty awesome month of capturing weddings with my second shooter Codie. Our wedding season this year started in May, but I have still yet to blog about all these fantastic weddings this year, but in all honesty, I just don't have the time to the moment. It's so crazy here at Samantha Jade Photography, and in the studio I have been super busy this month, I just want to say a big thank you to all my lovely clients for booking me to capture your weddings, celebrations and so on.
Every month I always have intentions on blogging a summery of the month just gone but I'm always wanting to make sure my clients images are back well before deadline dates. I have a little check list I run down every week with an order of galleries to complete, things that I need to order like prints or props, and work from that. I should maybe add on ' blog ', or I could possibly ask Codie...
So I just wanted to start by sharing this gorgeous image of Gary and Martin, who married 8th September at Skidby Millhouse. Despite the awful weather and the torrential down pour, it was such a lovely intimate ceremony, and we was also brave enough to go outside and get soaked for some photos, not something we'd normally do but we was all prepared with our umbrellas, needless to say we travelled home with the heating on full and the heated seats!! These two are such lovely gentlemen and we are honoured to be booked to capture their wedding. I am also handing over their images this weekend which will be a nice feeling for us.
The first newborn of the month to enter the studio was this little Mr, at 4 days old he was so dinky and so cute. Just look at that expression on his little face. His Daddy has booked just 2 days before the shoot and I managed to fit him in during the week on an evening. We haven't yet done an evening session in the studio but it was lovely. I know I have previewed the awake shots but we did get him to sleep for the rest of the session in the studio. I just want to thank Dad and Mum for booking with me and hope to see you again for a cake smash.
1st Cake Smash of September and this little guy totally rocked it. He was so good bless him and we got some lovely photographs to celebrate that turning ONE milestone. Our popular backdrop is a big hit at the moment so if you, or your little one loves this little bunny, why not book in for a cake smash with us.
In the same week as all of the above, we also met a gorgeous little girly who was only 2 weeks old, who came for a newborn session, again in the evening. I can't show you any previews but I can tell you that the session went well, and was all very pink and girly. This little girly was visiting family over here in Hull, it's always good to have clients from out of town. Thank you again for booking me.
Also this month, I was the second photographer for a change and popped along to Cave Castle for a wedding with Andrea from Hello Photography and I got to capture the wedding from other angles which I loved. Andrea is lovely and it's always great to work with other local photographers to help one another out.
I love this backdrop, and I just want to thank Kerrie from Props for Togs, on her super quick turn around of this gorgeous drop. I love girly cake smashes and this was all based on a well known character, a bit similar to the boy version above ;) Rabbits and ducks, hehe.. This little cutie was so good during her cakes smash session in the studio with Samantha Jade Photography, we are looking forward to seeing you again at your Christmas mini.
Wheels, wheels and wheels. This little Mr LOVED wheels, so of course the vintage car had to come out on our BOY themed cake smash! Planes and cars. Whats not to love eh? This little Mr was so good in the studio during his cake smash and splash session, and also covered Daddy in cake! Good boy :)
Yummy cake! This is how the cake smash went, he absolutely loved the cake smash, either being in the studio, or just because cake is that good. His mummy had won a half price cake smash session and wanted a boyish, blue theme, so clouds and planes it was for this little man, and the photos are just adorable. Thanks for visiting the studio, we hope to see you again.
and to end my update so far, although we still have this weekend to go, these two also visited the studio this month and I just wanna name these photos ' pretty in pink '. I am really loving the pinks at the moment.
For GDPR reasons, I have to respect clients wishes, therefore I can't add some photographs from some sessions but all the sessions I have had this month have been fab and I hope to see you again.
