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. That time I decited to make for her 2 different cake smash sessions. One was here in Austin, Texas at amazing rental business friend of my Bee Lavish and the second one was in my country concretely in Zilina at Budatin castle.

So this was my fist cake smash session with my little princess
😊

With a penchant for partying and hands ready to dive into that birthday cake, the first birthday is a greatly anticipated milestone in every family. At this age, your toddler will be interacting in lots of fun ways which sometimes leave even parents in need of a nap. Standing, walking, and ready to take on the world, we document that infectious energy and charisma that brings so much light (and sometimes surprise) into your life.

Customizing the photography scenes

I 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. You can customize the background set by yourself. I will provide the backdrop in any color you request or you can select my original backdrops I personaly designed. If you feel you can’t do it for any reason I will personally help you to create the scene you will love! I will find the props and everythig you request if it’s possible in the timeframe we will have for a scheduled photosession.
I will communicate with you about every detail for the photo set.
To customize the photography set is for an additional cost.


Here is a great example of how to make it happen without my extra help and make it look beautiful. After you select the backdrop you want for the cake smash session you can ask me to give you recommendations on colors which will goas with the backdrop. I will share a color harmony with you and this way it will be more easy for you to find an outfit for your little one and other props. When you come to my studio I will decorate the scenes.
We can start without props and add them during the session. Fill free to bring anything you like. You can also share pictures with me from your phone of what you find at stores (Hobby Lobby) and ask me for my opinion. This will be unique look you and I will create! Your first big project for your baby. You will have fun with it trust me.

The Cake

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, theme or balloons. 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!
