Welcome to the world Sebastian!
I was so excited to see this little boy and shoot his signature newborn portraits. One year ago I had a photography session with his big brother when he was newborn. 🙂
Sebastian looks just like him.
What is behind Sebastian’s name? From the Latin name Sebastianus which meant “from Sebaste”. Sebaste was the name a town in Asia Minor, its name deriving from Greek σεβαστος (sebastos) “venerable” (a translation of Latin Augustus, the title of the Roman emperors). Saint Sebastian was a 3rd-century Roman soldier martyred by arrows after it was discovered he was a Christian. Due to the saint’s popularity, the name came into general use in medieval Europe, especially in Spain and France. It was also borne by a 16th-century king of Portugal who died in a crusade against Morocco.
Enjoy your sneak peek, beautiful family 🙂
Welcome to the world Victoria!
This name means “victory” in Latin, being borne by the Roman goddess of victory. It is also a feminine form of Victorius. This name was borne by a 4th-century saint and martyr from North Africa. Though in use elsewhere in Europe, the name was very rare in the English-speaking world until the 19th century, when Queen Victoria began her long rule of Britain. She was named after her mother, who was of German royalty. Many geographic areas are named after the queen, including an Australian state and a Canadian city.

I was exited to build my own studio. When I was living in Slovakia, I always had to rent studio space for my photo shoots. This wasn’t the most ideal option because I could not control every thing in the studio such as cleanliness, organization of gear, props etc. Thankfully, now that I live in the good ‘ol U.S of A, I have my own studio space right at home.
I’ve always wanted my own studio space so that I can control the quality of everything within it’s walls. My husband, who is also an amazing photographer, insisted to build a studio for me in our home and that was the start of my dream 🙂 A couple months later, I opened an adorably intimate studio space which is located at 911 Dillons Vista, San Antonio TX 78251 near Sea World. My studio is close to the intersection of highway 151 and Portranco road. The space is perfect for creative meetings with clients, presentations and photography sessions.

Cleanliness Is My Top Priority

We also have a bassinet in the studio that you can use to change you baby’s pamper or if you simply want to put them there when you need to keep her/him safe and cozy. I take hygiene, baby safety, and overall care of your newborn very seriously. If I am ever sick, we will reschedule your session. I will never put your baby at risk. Everyone in the studio who works with me makes every effort to keep their hands sanitized. Also my assistants and I place great emphasis on handling your precious baby as gently as possible.

I have some basic tips how to prepare for your Newborn Photography Session.
Mommies are generally instructed to do most of the feeding at our studio so that baby will be nice and relaxed. We love a hungry baby!
We want this beautiful new baby to relax and feed in our studio or if we are going to you, just before we arrive. This way we can start with an outfit or wrap while they digest and then continue on as they are nice and comfortable. With that being said, if you want baby naked, then at some point they will poop or pee! And it’s ok!!
We are so used to it and it truly doesn’t bother us – we just grab another blanket!
We also use heaters and white noise to help soothe babies – and we do have a/c for the hot ones. If you are not breastfeed take with you min. 2 bottles of milk or supplies for nursing. If a pacifier or soother is required, take them with you. Also, don’t forget to take more diapers.
Signature Newborn Session by Veronika Gant is introducing baby boy “Sebastian”
This Signature newborn session was hosted in home of “O” parents so I packed up all the accessories and gear that I have for newborn Photo shoots and drove to their place. It was a beautiful day, a day that was just perfect for capturing the first precious moments of “Sebastian’s” life. The house was charming and a plenty of natural light coming through the large windows in the house made for delightful pictures of Sebastian.
