Cake Smash Photographer Loughborough_027.jpg

We had brilliant fun at our son’s first birthday cake smash. The props, backdrops, and outfits are great and so much more varied than I’ve seen anywhere else. Jade got wonderful shots despite him insisting on doing everything his own way and deciding he doesn’t like cake. We’ve just had our viewing session and the final photos are gorgeous. We’re already looking forward to our next session.

 At Inspirique Baby Photography, we are fully trained to handle and pose your baby safely. I guarantee that you and your baby will feel completely comfortable at all times, knowing you are coming to a qualified photography studio that specialises in just babies. We use a certified and insured local bakery for our homemade and bespoke cakes, with a hygiene rating of 5.






Celebrate your child turning one by capturing their first taste of cake on camera. It's such a fun and memorable way to mark your little ones first birthday. You'll get to watch them explore new tastes and textures, recording their personality with those cute and funny expressions that you'll love and treasure forever from this precious milestone.


Their first birthday is one you want to remember, it's the one with the most emotions, and it's such a special time for you as a family. A child will never remember their day, they won't remember a party, and they won't remember the gifts they received. But with a birthday shoot to mark the occasion, they'll have precious images to look back on to share that emotion with you.


It's something you can relive over and over for years to come.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our cake smash photos, they are even better than I imagined. Jade is so professional in her work, despite the fact my kids are very hard to photograph, the outcome is brilliant. We got some lovely family & sibling photos too which was a bonus to her cake smash plus we got to take the rest of the cake home to eat. We couldn't narrow the images down which goes to show she produces great work! Thanks again, lovely memories to treasure forever.

The first birthday photoshoots consists of four sessions. We begin with what you came for, the cake smash, this is where the fun begins and things get messy, for this part we sit your (not so little) baby in front of the cake and all rules go out of the window, we let them go crazy. Children love to be let loose on a cake, which creates some brilliant laughs, smiles, giggles and expressions.


We then go on to the splash part, where we put your little one in the mini bath tub with water and plenty of bubbles, letting them splash away and enjoy the water, which creates some gorgeous, natural and fun photos. 


Now they're used to the camera, we get some standard posed photos on a set to match your preferences. Sibling photos can also be done here.​ And finally, if you are brave enough to step in front of the camera yourself, then here comes the family part, where we'll do a mini session to get a few lovely images of you all together.

We decided to invest in a photoshoot for my little ones first birthday and went for a cake smash as they won’t remember it themselves and parties seemed like a waste to me personally. Jade is amazing at what she does and from the minute I enquired, the service was super professional and reassuring followed with a introductory phone call and money back guarantee if you don’t like the photos. On the day of the shoot, Jade was amazing with my little Noah and he was made to feel at ease straight away which always means lovely photos! These photos are going to last us a lifetime and so so glad we got them done! Thank you Jade and team, you guys are great!

 Where you have your babies photos taken matters. You're probably not as anxious as you were when your baby was a newborn, but it's still a daunting thing, bringing your baby to a stranger and letting them handle them, or worrying how they'll behave in a new place. I get it, I'm a Mum myself and I know how you may be feeling. You might be a little sleep deprived from your baby going through a regression, frustrated that they're teething and you can't settle them, stressed incase they need to eat during the shoot. I know first hand how babies don't always stick to routine and if you need to take 20 minutes out to soothe, feed or play with your baby - that's okay. Separation anxiety is also a real thing and a lot of babies don't always want me to hold them at first which is fine. I allow plenty of time to get to know your baby first, to play with them, make them laugh and gain their trust before I even think about taking a photo. It's a very relaxed experience, for you both.

At the end of your photoshoot we'll set a date for you to come back and view your images, which will be scheduled for around 2 weeks after the session. I will then process your images to the highest standard, spending time turning them into beautiful art work - giving you a wide range to choose from at your in person viewing appointment. 


As I know you will be very keen to see some photos, I will get a preview onto social media within a few days as it is a great way to tag and share with your friends and family. However, if you do wish to keep your images private, this is no problem at all, just inform me of this beforehand. If you do want to see the upload, there will be a free print up for grabs too.  


You will then be invited back to see your gallery on a slideshow with music, where I will help you chose and pick the package suited to you and your budget. I will also guide you with what images work best together for any prints and wall art you may decide to get. Please note, I am just there to advise you from my professional point of view and there is never any hard sell.

After viewing the images from my Granddaughters cake smash. All I can say is I could not choose, every picture was amazing and you could see the enjoyment in my granddaughters eyes in every picture. We were not rushed into choosing at all and Jade the photographer even helped and advised to make sure we had the best pictures. Thank you so much for making a very emotional time that extra special.
