Baby Photography Tips & Tricks

I'm an experienced baby photographer so please, let me give you some tips & tricks to make your photos perfect and the shoot as efficient as possible.


First of all, please arrive on time. Any delay caused by you will reduce our reserved time for your shoot. 


When is the best time to do a Baby shoot?

It's when your baby is between 1 and 12 months old.  Newborn photography is done in the first month after birth of your baby.


How do we at Fotoshoot Rotterdam prepare ourselves for your Baby shoot?

We prepare the scenery, props, toys, clothes, our equipment etc. for your individual baby shoot. The temperature in our studio is perfect (21-22 °C), it's quiet, nobody is disturbing us. In our studio you can easily feed your baby, change your baby's diaper, etc.


What about baby clothes, toys, props, gadgets?

Our studio has the widest assortment of props in the Netherlands. See here some of our assortment propos and other items which we use in baby photography.


Where can we do your baby shoot?

Everywhere. You decide where your pictures will be taken. Our studio offers the best facility because of the available dresses, props and gadgets, lighting and other equipment. But a shoot at home, in the outdoors or other location gives a special atmosphere. And I can take a lot of equipment and props with me. So your baby pictures can be taken literally everywhere.


Which styles, themes can you choose from?

As you can see in our portfolio, you can choose literally any style, theme, story which will accopmany your maternity shoot. From colourful, 'bling-bling' & sweet to minimalistic, basic, quiet, black & white. You decide about it. Or I can make suggestions. You can combine various styles in one shoot.


What about make-up and hair styling?

Our make-up artist and our hairdresser will fully prepare you for your Baby photo shoot. See our proposition here.


Can my family members and friends join my shoot?

Yes. Check our packages to see how many persons are included. If there are more persons to be photographed you have to choose a more extensive package. See our prices & packages Baby Photograhy here.


Can I choose my pictures (which will be edited and delivered)?

Yes. You are the only one choosing your stunning baby photos. Then our photographer will edit them.


How do I receive my photos?

They will be sent digitally to you via WeTransfer. Your pictures will be professionally edited in high resolution.  


What if my babyshoot is outside and the weather gets worse?

Well, it seems to be a problem but it isn't. We have two options:

1. Reschedule your shoot

2. Your shoot takes place in our professional studio

We do not charge you extra for rescheduling.
