Capturing Cherished Moments with Baby Malikhai at Veronika Gant Photography

There’s something magically endearing about newborn photography, and our recent session with the captivating baby boy Malikhai truly encapsulated that charm. We were already familiar with the radiant Zoey and her delightful family. Having them back in our Studio was nothing short of a treat, and this time, with an added sprinkle of joy – their precious new addition, Malikhai.

From the moment they walked in, the session’s theme exuded simplicity and elegance. The family’s choice of a beige backdrop seamlessly matched with Malikhai’s delicate beige wrap, creating a harmonious visual symphony. It’s always incredible to witness how certain colors can accentuate the pristine innocence of a newborn. During these shots, Malikhai was a vision of serenity, emanating warmth and contentment.

Switching the mood slightly, we moved to a soft grey fur setting. This luxurious texture beautifully contrasted with the silky smoothness of baby Malikhai’s skin. Adding an adorable grey hat and wrap to the ensemble, he looked every bit the tiny prince, commanding adoration with every tiny movement.

One of the most poignant moments was when we shifted to a bold black background. With Malikhai safely cradled in his father’s hands, the image perfectly captured the bond – a father’s protective embrace around his newest world. Every picture tells a story, and this one spoke volumes of love, trust, and an unbreakable connection.

For our final set, a light blue backdrop was the choice, offering a gentle hue that symbolized the vast sky of possibilities awaiting young Malikhai. Incorporating a hat into one of the images added a playful touch, making it one of our favorites from the day. As we concluded the session, Malikhai, with his heart-melting smile, looked every bit the star he truly is.

Reflecting on the day, our studio was filled with laughter, joy, and the unmistakable glow of a family’s love. We consider ourselves beyond fortunate to be a part of these intimate moments. Thank you, Zoey and family, for entrusting us with your memories. And to baby Malikhai, may your life be filled with boundless love, joy, and countless cherished moments.

Floral Fantasies and First Birthdays: Eleanor’s Enchanting Cake Smash Session at Veronika Gant Photography

The first year of a baby’s life is filled with countless milestones. From the first smile to the first word, every moment is precious. And one of the most exciting milestones? Their first birthday cake smash! We were beyond delighted when Eleanor’s parents chose our studio for this special occasion. And boy, was it a session to remember.

The theme was straight out of a fairy tale: a mesmerizing white flower wall that transported us to an ethereal world. Imagine this: big and small boxes adorned with luscious greenery, pristine white flowers that seemed to bloom right in front of our eyes, tufts of delicate pampas grass swaying gently, and vintage cages that added a touch of timeless elegance. With a backdrop as breathtaking as the flower wall and the pristine white flooring reflecting its beauty, the scene was nothing short of magical.

The finishing touch was provided by the parents in the form of two wooden signs. One beautifully carved with the word “Eleanor” and the other, a radiant sunshine sign, symbolizing the ray of light and happiness that Eleanor brings into their lives.


For the initial shots, Eleanor was the picture of innocence in a minty tulle dress. The gentle hue complemented her rosy cheeks, and the tulle seemed to dance around her as she explored her surroundings. We also incorporated a simplistic white bowl in some of the captures, which contrasted perfectly with the dress and the vibrant backdrop.

As the session progressed, Eleanor changed into a beautiful brown lace dress. The earthy tone against the pure white backdrop made her look even more adorable, if that was even possible!

No cake smash is complete without, well, the cake! The choice was a classic – a delectable white-frosted cake that sat elegantly on a white cake stand. To tie it in with our theme, the cake was crowned with a beautiful wooden cake topper. As Eleanor dug into her cake, her joy and excitement were palpable. Each smear of frosting on her face, each handful of cake, was a testament to the sheer delight of the moment.


Baby Eleanor was a bundle of joy in our studio. Her infectious giggles, curious eyes scanning the decor, and tiny hands reaching out for the cake made our day. Watching her bask in the love and adoration of her parents was heartwarming. Every click of our camera captured not just a moment but a memory that Eleanor and her family will cherish for a lifetime.


In this beautiful journey of life, it’s moments like these that remind us of the simple joys and the beauty of family. We are deeply grateful to Eleanor’s parents for letting us be a part of this wonderful experience. Here’s to many more milestones and memories with the beautiful baby Eleanor!
