A Royal Affair: Baby Session with Little Prince Anderson

Photography is about capturing moments and turning them into memories that last a lifetime. But when the subject of the photoshoot is as adorable as Little Prince Anderson, those moments become all the more precious.

Our setting for the day was simple, with a pristine white background to provide a stark contrast to the vivid hues of the props and outfits. This minimalistic approach ensured that all the attention was focused on Anderson and his captivating expressions.

Anderson was a sight to behold in his royal blue cloak adorned with plush white fur. The rich, velvety texture of the cloak complemented the softness of his skin, making him look every bit the prince he was dressed as. The twinkle in his eyes and his playful demeanor added a touch of mischief to the regal setup.

The details are what make a photograph stand out. And with Anderson, we had the perfect accessories to complete the royal theme. The golden crown, symbolizing majesty and the plush blue cushion with golden tassels, gave a touch of grandeur to the entire setup.

Each click of the camera captured Anderson’s ever-changing moods and expressions. From the playful hide-and-seek behind the cloak to the contemplative gaze towards the crown, Anderson showcased a range of emotions that were a delight to capture.

Amidst the royal theme, we also captured some candid shots of Anderson against a fuzzy grey background. The texture of the backdrop provided a soft contrast to Anderson’s smooth skin, bringing out his innocence and charm.

Photographing Little Prince Anderson was an experience filled with joy and wonder. His infectious enthusiasm, coupled with the royal theme, made this session truly memorable. The pictures are a testament to the fact that every child is royalty in their own right. And as the photographer, I feel privileged to have been a part of Anderson’s regal journey.

A Cake Smash to Remember: Baby Harlow’s First Birthday Celebration

There’s something utterly magical about a baby’s first birthday. That significant milestone that marks a year of cuddles, giggles, first words, and first steps. And what better way to celebrate this than with a delightful cake smash session? We had the absolute joy of capturing the charming Harlow in all her cake-smashing glory at our studio.

From the moment Harlow and her family stepped into our studio, the atmosphere buzzed with excitement and anticipation. The decision by Harlow’s parents to use our Adriana Garden ready-to-go set was perfect for the occasion. The set, adorned with an array of pink and white flowers juxtaposed against fresh greenery, provided a serene, almost dreamy aura to the shoot. The natural wooden boxes and the vintage cage added an elegant rustic touch, complementing the delicate hue of our pink textured backdrop. This backdrop is always a crowd-pleaser, especially for cake smash sessions or individual portraits.

And what a star Harlow turned out to be! Donning a darling onesie proudly declaring “One,” she looked every bit the birthday girl. The tutu added a touch of balletic grace, and the white bow was the cherry on top, making her look effortlessly chic. It’s incredible how even the simplest outfits can make such powerful statements when worn by such charming babies.

During the session, we also played around with some props, letting Harlow experience the textures of our white bowl and the curves of our half-moon chair. Each new setting and pose captured a different facet of her bubbly personality.

And then came the moment everyone had been waiting for – the cake smash! Positioned on a rustic wooden cake stand was a pristine white cake, simple yet elegant. Harlow’s eyes lit up at the sight, and soon enough, she was diving into it, hands first, with the kind of enthusiasm only a one-year-old can muster. She was a smiley baby, reveling in the joy of smashing and tasting the cake, leaving us with some unforgettable shots.

We often see a myriad of reactions during cake smash sessions, but Harlow’s uncontainable excitement and joy was truly infectious. Each click of the camera captured a new expression, a new pose, a new adventure. From her initial curious prods to her exuberant dives into the creamy center, Harlow’s cake smashing was a masterclass in unabashed joy.

Capturing such landmark moments is a profound honor for us. Every baby brings their unique charm and energy to a cake smash session, and Harlow was no exception. With her infectious smiles and endearing antics, she made the day unforgettable.

A massive thank you to Harlow’s parents for entrusting us with this special occasion. It’s sessions like these that remind us why we do what we do, capturing fleeting moments that families can cherish forever. Here’s to many more milestones, Harlow! 🎂🌸📷

Mommy and Me: A Timeless Session with Alyssa and Baby Zoe

In the realm of photography, every moment captured holds a story, and today’s tale revolves around the sublime bond between a mother and her child. We were blessed to have the enchanting Alyssa and her cherubic baby girl, Zoe, grace our studio with their heartwarming presence. The session that ensued was nothing short of magical.

To kick off our session, we chose the Egg Nog seamless backdrop – a hue that exudes warmth and tenderness. Alyssa was effortlessly chic in a pristine white blouse paired with jeans, while little Zoe melted our hearts in a delicate white onesie. The images from this set speak volumes; they shimmer with unspoken love, the kind that only a mother and her child can share.

As the session progressed, Alyssa switched into a crisp white dress shirt, maintaining the ethereal white theme, while Zoe kept her charming onesie on. Their interactions were delightful, with Zoe’s infectious giggles echoing through our studio, creating memories that would last a lifetime.

In our next ensemble, Alyssa slipped into a sumptuous brown dress, complementing Zoe’s light beige jumper adorned with a dainty bow. The combination was breathtaking, painting a picture of warmth, coziness, and pure love.

Taking the session a notch higher, we swathed Alyssa in beige fabric, the soft contours of which perfectly highlighted her motherly figure. As she held Zoe close, the world seemed to fade away, leaving behind just the two of them, wrapped up in a cocoon of their shared affection.

In a dramatic turn, we opted for a stark black backdrop for our final set. Both Alyssa and Zoe were draped in flowing black fabric. The result? An image that is both powerful and poignant, capturing the infinite depth of their bond.

Our time with Alyssa and Zoe was not just a session but a journey through the myriad emotions that motherhood embodies. We’re immensely grateful to have been chosen to immortalize these special moments for them. Here’s sending Alyssa and Zoe a world full of love, laughter, and countless more memories.

Thank you, Alyssa and Zoe, for sharing a slice of your world with us. Wishing you both all the beauty and joy that life has to offer.

A Bohemian Boy Cake Smash Session: Celebrating Baby Kel in Style at Veronika Gant Photography

When you think of a cake smash session, you often imagine pastel colors, balloons, and the classic image of a baby with frosting smeared all over their face. Well, this time, we had the pleasure of capturing something a little different – a bohemian-inspired cake smash for the adorable baby boy, Kel.

From the moment baby Kel and his loving family entered our studio, the excitement was palpable. They brought in an energy that radiated throughout the room, making the shoot all the more special.

Drawing inspiration from bohemian aesthetics, the scene was meticulously crafted with intricate details. A mix of big and small white boxes brought dimension to the set, creating varying levels for Kel to explore. The stuffed bear and toy dog added a touch of whimsy and innocence, while the small pampas grass added that boho vibe, seamlessly tying the setup together.

The pristine white backdrop paired with the white wooden flooring provided a neutral canvas, ensuring that the main focus remained on baby Kel and the props.

For the initial set of images, before the grand cake extravaganza, Kel sported a charming jumper complemented by a hat, giving him a dapper look that melted our hearts. The white bowl and half-moon chair were instrumental in creating dynamic shots, capturing Kel’s playful nature.

Transitioning to the cake smash, baby Kel changed into a brown jumper, keeping with the bohemian theme and ensuring he was comfortable while indulging in his cake.

Sitting proudly on a wooden cake stand was a delectably simple, white cake. The minimalistic design was elevated by a cake topper featuring a wooden sign, adding an earthy touch to the dessert.

And boy, did baby Kel enjoy that cake! With eager hands and a gleeful expression, he dived into the cake, smashing it with enthusiasm. It’s moments like these – the unbridled joy and innocence of a child – that we live for.


The success of a shoot not only depends on the studio and its props but majorly on the little subject and their parents. We are immensely grateful to baby Kel’s parents for entrusting us with these precious moments. The happiness and memories captured are ones that will be cherished for a lifetime.

To baby Kel and family, we wish you all the joy, laughter, and sweet moments ahead. May your journey be filled with memories as delightful as this cake smash session. Cheers!
