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


Where can I order the cake for my shoot?

There are many bakeries in the Netherlands which supply cakes. Just Google it. Fotoshoot Rotterdam has selected these suppliers where you can order your cake on-line:


Then take your cake to our studio. 


When is the best time to do Cake Smash shoot?

Your child's first birthday, of course. If you book 2-3 weeks in advance most of the time we can guarantee you the shoot on your childe's birthday. But on the other hand, it's not a disaster if your shoot is done a few days earlier or later.


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

We prepare the scenery, props, toys, clothes, our equipment etc. for your individual shoot. The temperature in our studio is perfect (20-21 °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 clothes, costumes, 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 Cake Smash photography.


Where can we do your 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 Cake Smash 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 Cake Smash 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 Cake Smash photo session. 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 Cake Smash Photograhy here.
