Meet Your San Antonio Cake Smash Photographer
INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNING AND CERTIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER
Welcome to my web page for San Antonio Cake Smash Session and thank you so much for considering me as your photographer of choice to capture these precious memories that you will enjoy the rest of your life. My name is Veronika Gant and I am a fine art & commercial photographer located in San Antonio. Originally from the beautiful country of Europe Slovakia.
I fall in love with this type of photography when my daughter turned 1 year old. I decided to make two photography sessions for her. One here in San Antonio and one in Slovakia.
So this was my first cake smash session with my little princess in San Antonio.

For each mom and dad, this moment of their child is very special and important. They want to remember this moment forever and they will do above and beyond for their little one to make this milestone special.
Cake Smash Session is one of those special moments and is most important because the family will have amazing images which they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
At this age, your baby will be interacting in lots of fun ways which sometimes leave even parents super tired. Standing, crawling, walking, and ready to take the world, I document that amazing energy and charisma that brings so much light and sometimes surprise into your life.

Customizing the photography scenes
We love to make the San Antonio Cake Smash Session each time different and original.
Be creative – it’s your baby and her/his 1st Bday. We have many backdrop options and props you can select for your cake smash session. You can also bring own props we can use during the session.
Here is an excellent example of how to make it happen with our little extra help and make it look beautiful and original. After you select the backdrop for the cake smash session, you can email us and request recommendations on colors that will go with the backdrop. We will share a color harmony with you; this way, it will be easier for you to find an outfit for your little one and other props. When you come to my studio, Veronika will decorate the scenes for you.
Fill free to bring anything you like. You can also share pictures with us from your phone of what you find at stores (Hobby Lobby) and ask for our opinion. This will be the unique look you, and Veronika will create together! Your first big project for your baby. You will have fun with it, trust us. If you feel overwhelmed, you can always select our ready-to-go scenes.
See the example of the perfect collaboration between Veronika and our client.
The client shared with us an idea she would like to have for her daughter’s first Bday Cake Smash Session. We gave her thoughts about what she could bring and where to look for props. On the day of the session, our client came 15 min. earlier, and we designed the scene together.

A bubble bath is a very popular session. Veronika loves to snap some cute pictures of your baby enjoying the water and bubbles.
You can bring little towels that complement the color of your selected backdrop. Toys – Little ducks, fish, or any cute toys for the bubble bath are perfect to complete the setup.
Our studio also has some props, but if you want to personalize the scenes, feel free to do so.

Please let me know in advance what color(s) you will order for your cake so that we can make sure that the cake will have the colors we discussed and will match with the background. We prefer white cake on the inside, regular frosting (no fondant). The size of the cake 6″ and 8″, cupcake style and regular round. It’s really just your personal preference.
The smashing of the cake
Cake smash sessions generally only past one of two ways; The baby loves it and makes a huge funny mess. Or The baby wants nothing to do with the cake. Now that they are on the move they usually just crawl or walk away. Just in case this happens, wear comfortable pants so you can chase your baby down.
These sessions can get very messy so make sure that you bring a spare set of clothes for you and your birthday baby. We have lots of fun during these sessions, a few images of your little one will be taken before the cake comes out so they are familiar with the camera and me. Then the cake comes in and we begin smashing!
