Newborn Photography Studio and Props

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.

Everything You Need For Your Newborn Session

My studio is stocked full of blankets, baskets, knits, wraps and all the headbands you need! We have all of the popular colors and styles for boys and girls.

Cleanliness Is My Top Priority

All materials, wraps, blankets and clothing are washed in dye free detergents and are always kept clean. 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.

Newborn Photography Ideas

Every newborn session is adorable on its own. Take the time to think about the theme you’d like for your baby’s newborn session. Looking for newborn photography ideas to inspire you? No problem. You can look through my blog or hop to pinterest.

My Little Star Newborn Session photo shoots most often takes place in my client’s home. This can create unique images tailored for you because I will have an option to work with your interiors. The result is specific images that feel personal and soulful.

Though this session type is not about sleepy poses, we still can use special outfits, wraps with different hats or we can cover your little bundle of joy with blanket made by his grandmother. Or, even cuter, your baby can be in their crib and you can put his first toy next to him.


If you select a Newborn Session that includes sleepy poses, our first pre-session consultation will be about all the ideas specific to you and your husband.
With my Signature Newborn Session you will got minimum of 3 different looks.

Here are some of my newborn photography ideas at home from my home studio:

Will your baby be born in the summer or winter seasons?

I can create a beautiful setup with seasonal themes. Spring time full of flowers, summer time full of shells, autumn time full of colorful leaves, winter time full of snowflakes or whatever is connected with your baby’s birth season.

How to prepare for your San Antonio Newborn Photography Session

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.

Maternity Photography for “Sophie”

I love making Maternity Photography in San Antonio at this location during Fall season. Seeing the canopy of all the colors of Mother Nature is enchanting. Oh, and the couple was soo adorable. Their beautiful spirit blended in with the delightful scenery.  I had a tremendous pleasure capturing their love and beauty.

The weather is pretty unpredictable during this time of the year, but we were lucky to enjoy beautiful and warm Fall evening with a mesmerizing sunset. I am so glad they chose a photo session at this captivating location.

Combining the use of flash lights with natural lights gave this set of pictures a Veronika-Gant-Signature look. 🙂

Signature Newborn Session of Sebastian

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.

San Antonio Newborn Photography Ideas by Veronika Gant (Christmas Theme)

I am totally LOVING this session from last week with the “S” family. I was so excited about this session because I created a new winter look and little “N’ was my first model for this San Antonio Newborn Photography Idea. She was awesome, and as an added bonus, she slept almost the entire session.

This is a perfect example of my Signature Newborn Session with parents and siblings. Family “S” also has a handsome boy who is nearly 2 years young and he brought fantastic energy to the studio 🙂 Photographing them together was a fun experience for me and I think we all did a fantastic job creating priceless photographs they will really enjoy forever.

Congratulations to the beautiful “S” family.
