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.

This handsome little chap visited the studio on the 4th July for his 1st birthday Cake Smash and Splash session. Everything blue for this little guy which totally complimented those big blue eyes of his and blonde curly / wavy hair and his beautiful little smile.
.You may of seen the prop chair in my studio or on other photographs previously. During lockdown I gave it a little make over and painted it white with some Frenchic from The Beverley Flower Company
Occasionally, we do have a few little melt downs...
But it's ok, it's hard work turning ONE. We get back up and on with it...
and make a BIG splash in the tub!
It was such a pleasure having this little guy in the studio and I hope he has a fantastic birthday.
I am back and although nervous, extremely excited to be back in the studio after the COVID19 lockdown! All precautions in place and ready to rock n roll again. Todays session was... a CAKE SMASH! For those of you who know me, or have read other posts, know I love a cake smash. One of my goals (providing I have parents consent for sharing images) is to keep my blog alive and share share share my work for you all to see.
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 ;)

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
