Jean’s first birthday photo shoot
Sue and I have been friends with Adam and Jen for a long while. We photographed Jack as a baby and various family events including Jen’s sister Anna’s wedding in Italy a few years ago. So we know them very well and they have all become friends which is just lovely.
Today we did one of our cake smash shoots for Jean who is one in a few days time. We did the same shoot for Jack around 4 years ago so we were excited to do this one today.
Jenny and Adam booked our family shoot add on first so we started with a few family photos.
Afterwards we setup for cake and popped Jean in front of it not knowing quite what to expect. Jack was a little hesitant with his at first BUT……Jean most definitely was not. she started picking and being very ladylike with the icing and it soon turned into a cake smash frenzy which was amazing to watch. Without a single interruption or physical encouragement from us she was literally covered in pink cake, HEAD TO TOE covered .
After 10 minutes or so Jack was desperate for some cake so we (mum and us) decided to let him join her. OMG I am so pleased we did again it was so much fun. Jack has always been a good kid and was just perfect with the cake.
After the cake we setup the bath and jean had a super splashy and very well needed bath.
Top shoot with another amazing family.
The Main event, the cake
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 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.
Our Splash time in our lovely baby bath
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.

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.
