Annabelle and her amazing funny and very messy cake shoot
We met Amy and Graham a year or so ago when we photographed Georgina’s (Nina) cake shoot. They are an absolutely amazing family and I honestly could write here all day just about that. Once of these families that you happen upon once out twice in your life and and you should be blessed.
Well we met them this year for a few family photos and Christmas photos and we had planned the cake shoot for Annabelle and the same time but lockdown-not-a-lockdown got in the way. Or at least it did until we could clarify the rules,
So we arranged the shoot and sure enough the tag team “Nina and Annabelle” destroyed it. The photos were fantastic, unconventional but fantastic and once again I cant remember laughing quite so much. After the cake was gone, when I say gone I really mean spread all over the studio 😂 we got the bath ready.
Annabelle loved it. But it was not long before Nina got into the action too and started to join in. Well after lots of fun and more cake photos than I have ever taken I said we were done and to get Annabelle out of the bath and dressed. I walked towards my editing area and heard commotion. Nina was only in the blooming bath. Big smile and big splash haha. Of course I went back for a few more photos.
Unconventional, amazing children. Please don’t ever change.
The Main event, the cake shoot
Our cakes are all beautifully decorated by us too give us the squishy buttercream and superb burst of colour too, either blue, pink or chocolate coloured. We also have a selection of lovely cake and and cake toppers too. We can choose Dairy free or Vegan cakes which do cost a tiny bit more but only ask you cover the extra needed.
We supply the babies outfits and everything you need for a fabulous shoot. You can see all the options below.
Our Splash time in our lovely baby bath. So OK its not all about the cake…………
Sometimes if the babies don’t really go for the cake it’s not a problem because we encourage them to enjoy it. Today of course we did not need to but if thats the case then they generally love the bath time in our beautiful little roll top bath especially imported from our pals in Texas.
Our cake smash photo studio location in Southampton
We have a modern comfortable studio with lots of space and perfectly setup for our cake smash and splash shoots. We have a bathroom and changing areas fully heated and more importantly air conditioned for now when it’s hotter outside.
Lots of free parking offload and a waiting room if you arrive early.
We have free high speed guest wifi so you can catch up one facebook whilst we photograph the children and you can enjoy a lovely latte from our deluxe coffee machine which of course is all free too.
Free cookies for the children and adults. Our famous Gingerbread cookies are very popular and people say they are worth coming back for although quite honestly some sessions are so crazy fast we just don’t have time, Its all about the kids here at JPP.
We also have phone sockets available for recharging, you only need to ask.
What does a cake smash and splash cost?
Our cake smash and splash shoots cost just £200 and includes all of the photos that we take supplied ready to print and share, plus the cake and both the smash and splash shoot. We do not hold back, if we take 100 photos then you get 100 photos all beautifully finished ready to print and share.

Surely there must be hidden extras?
Absolutely not. Sue and I sell our photo packages just like we prefer to buy things, that is everything upfront and honest. Every package we offer from newborns, cake shoots and family shoots comes with all of the photos that we take (minus any mistakes or blinkers etc) and they are all high resolution 300dpi ready to print and share with family and friends. That means afterwards you can pop along to your local printers and buy prints or a canvas which is super important if you live away or if your parents live away and they want photos or any album, you just forward the download link that we send you.
Some photographers offer cake shoots for £95 but you don’t get any photos. Or £150.00 and you get a very small selection of photos. Either way you are forced to walk away with very little or indeed nothing or you pay hundreds and maybe thousands afterwards. With us our cake shoot smash and splash its £200.00 including the cake and photos.
