cake smash Essex

Thank you for your interest in booking your Cake Smash Session with Jay Saunders Photography.

What better way to celebrate your first birthday than smashing up a cake? Oh and followed by a nice bubble bath…

All my Cake Smash Sessions will include some simple classic shots and mum and dad can get involved too if you like? After all, you have all had 1 amazing year together.



Ideally it’s best to book them in for when your little one is around 11 months, as it allows time to have the photos ready before your little ones big day if you wanted to use them for party invitations etc



Don’t worry, please still get in touch as I may still be able to offer you a session.



We will have a full design consultation before the shoot and you will have full use of all my props and outfits. However please feel free to bring any outfits you would like.



All sessions take place in my home studio in Ongar, Essex. I have a lovely studio at the back of my garden, separate from my house. 

There is a sofa and coffee machine in the studio for you to relax and watch me capture the beautiful images of your precious baby.



Weekday Sessions fees are £90.00

Weekend Sessions fees are £150.00

This does not include images. You will be invited back to the studio 2-3 weeks after your session for an ordering appointment where you will be shown all your final edited images and you can make your purchases from.
