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
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.

Jessica had previously had a family photo shoot with me back when I used to work in the dining room. It was great to hear from Jess again after the birth of her new baby, who may I add, is super tiny!!!
Here's a few previews from todays session
Summer is my favourite time of the year, I'm not one for wind and rain, yes snow looks pretty but once you've done numerous of school runs in it, and you come in all wet and soggy, freezing, naa, it's not for me, give me sunshine any day of the year. Speaking of the weather? How lovely has the weather been in Hull recently? I never catch the sun, but this year I look sun kissed. I took the opportunity of this lovely weather to offer some lovely little beach minis, which was done on Hornsea Seafront, so not a long drive from Hull. The beach minis took around 30-60 minutes, and I just spent time with families / couples, walking along the sea front, chatting, playing, giggling. It was lovely. The whole vibe was really relaxed which helped capturing some gorgeous images.
I won't go on anymore, but I do offer location photography sessions in and around Hull, if anyone would like a natural, relaxed, family or couple portrait shoot, get in touch...
Last weekend we had a little road trip to Leominster to take part in a newborn workshop with Veronica at Sleep Munchkins Photography. We set off nice and early from Hull at 4:15am, coffee in hand, and headed down the motorway.
We arrived an hour early, and stopped for breakfast! We found a lovely little café which reminded us of a little place we had visited in Cornwall, we refuelled on a lovely warm breakfast, which we washed down with some fresh orange juice and headed off to the workshop.
Camera and note pads in hand, we was ready to learn and advance our already skills on posing baby, tips of getting baby to sleep, wrapping techniques and much, much more.
Before the newborn model arrived, we made lots of notes on how to improve our skills, and learnt a few new things too, as well as taking lots of photos on our phone as the day went on... (hides!)
We booked Veronica's newborn workshop, because we liked her simple style. Our style is simple, so attending this workshop for us was great, as we was learning to improve our style.
The little baby model was amazing, and slept a dream during the session, which was great as we learnt how to flow the newborn session with less disruptions as possible. We also love this pink, don't you?
and we also love this blue? Don't you agree?
We had a great time at the workshop, and now our studio is up and running in Hull, we are investing in some new backdrops / wraps and props for our newborn sessions.
Our newborn sessions are £70 with a 10x8inch complimentary print, and you buy then buy as little or as much as you like after the session, without pressure to purchase.
We would also like to thank Veronica for a wonderful newborn photography workshop, and we would defiantly recommend her to other photographers too.
I love it when a client comes to me and asks for portraits on location, it's always good to get away from the studio and work with something different. We love being outdoors, so outdoor and working is a win, win.
We first met this lovely family approximately 4 years ago, when again, we did some family portraits on location. At the time, it was a family of four, and now there's a family of five. Obviously the girls was a lot younger back then, so looking back on the families location photo-shoot at the weekend, it was lovely to see how much the girls had changed, and also to see how big my work was printed.
So this weekend we updated this families portraits with their new little addition and we love the results from their photography session.
