A Vibrant Viva La Mexico Cake Smash with Baby Anna: A Veronika Gant Photography Masterpiece

If you’re in the mood for a colorful and culturally-rich celebration, you’re in for a treat! A cake smash session, one of the most delightful ways to commemorate a baby’s first year, was recently held at our studio, graced by the beautiful baby girl Anna. The celebration, photographed by the extraordinarily talented Veronika Gant, was a heartwarming testament to the vibrant culture and colors of Mexico, as an homage to Anna’s family roots.

Immersing her creativity and cultural sensitivity into this photoshoot, Veronika designed a spectacular “Viva La Mexico” themed backdrop. This stunning arrangement was rich in Mexican symbols, integrating elements of Anna’s family heritage into every scene.

The backdrop that served as the canvas for the session was a seamless hot pink wall. This electrifying color created a lively atmosphere that brilliantly portrayed the spirited essence of Mexico. In the future, clients have the option to customize this color from a palette of options available in our studio. We aim to create a bespoke experience that fully represents your vision and taste.

Veronika’s eye for detail and commitment to authenticity was evident in the hand-made cactuses and stone vases and pots that adorned the scene. They added an earthy, rustic touch to the vibrant setting, a wonderful representation of Mexico’s diverse landscape.


To complete the scene, Veronika added a unique element in the form of papel picado – a traditional Mexican folk art that involves intricate paper cutting. These were paired with twinkling lights at the back of the backdrop, adding a magical glow to the atmosphere. This festive decoration is often associated with Mexican celebrations and their inclusion added to the authenticity of the theme.

The star of the session, baby Anna, looked absolutely adorable in an outfit sourced from LunamayaboutiqueUS. This ensemble was carefully selected to match the theme, and it complemented the decor perfectly. For those interested in checking out more of their creations, a link to the shop can be found here.
