Meet Your San Antonio Newborn Photographer
TINY FINGERS. TINY TOES. A LOVE YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN.
Hello! My name is Veronika and I am a certified San Antonio Newborn Photographer. I am originally from the beautiful country of Slovakia. Like San Antonio- which is in the heart of Texas, Slovakia is in the heart of Eastern Europe. I have been a San Antonio Newborn Photographer since 2014 and I am humbled to have been named as one of the top 20 Newborn Photographers in San Antonio by Expertise. I am excited to create amazing newborn portraits of your bundle of joy!
Safety for Newborn Photography
While creating beautiful portraits for you is important, the safety of your baby is my top priority. Since 2014, I have taken the responsibility of invested in educating myself not only in photography & lighting but also education on best practices for baby safety and safe baby posing. I have received certification from one of the world’s most well known newborn and maternity photographers, Ana Brandt. I photograph 3-4 newborns weekly including preemies. I am fully vaccinated. In case I happen to sick, I will immediately contact you to reschedule your session because I will never put your baby at risk. I will always pose your baby with their safety in mind. This means I will never force your baby into a position that will make them uncomfortable. If I try a pose and your baby fusses or seems visibly uncomfortable, I will move on to my next position. Every baby has unique likes and dislikes. What works for one baby may or may not work for another baby. My watchful eye throughout the posing process will ensure your baby will always remain safe and comfortable. Here are examples of safe poses:
Package options for Newborn Photography
I offer custom packages of San Antonio newborn photography. This way I am giving you the freedom to customize the San Antonio newborn photography session to fit your ideas, needs, and budget. The standard San Antonio newborn photography session focuses only on your precious baby. Your baby will be photographed comfortably on the bean bag.
Next, you can upgrade the standard newborn session to a session where I will be using different backdrops, props like baskets, baskets, and bowls.
Images of the baby and parents or his/her siblings are a must for most of my clients. You will be able to upgrade this part of the portrait session to the standard session as well.
All the upgrades include additional full-resolution digital files. All sessions are photographed with studio lights to guarantee a consistent look.
Newborn Photography Ideas
Unique newborn photography ideas can help you get the most out of your San Antonio Newborn Photography session. I draw inspiration from many different things and the theme of your newborn photo session can depend on props, background choices, and decorations. I also love including the ideas of clients, i.e., you :). The goal is to create a look that is unique to you.
I also offer seasonal themes. For example, if your baby is born in Wintertime I can create a winter look for your session. Click the video to see the example of a unique Signature Newborn Session with Parents and Siblings.

Newborn Photography Prep Tips
Newborn sessions generally take about 2 hours, depending on the type of session. Babies have usually photographed anywhere from 5-14 days. With that being said, it is best to book either during your pregnancy session or as soon as the baby is born. I will set a session date based on your due date or scheduled c-section, with the understanding that we can easily move the date or time if the baby comes early or late.

Your Prints & Albums Will Never Fail
You want your fine art newborn photography to last forever. Years from now, you want to be able to pick up the beautiful images of your son or daughter or look at them as they hang on the living room wall. Hard drives fail. USB drives fail. CDs and DVDs crack and fail.
Digital files become corrupt or sit on a hard drive until it fails as well. And, all of the aforementioned technologies will be obsolete in the next 10 years. Sounds depressing? Well, it’s even more depressing when you can no longer look at the images of your son or daughter when they were newborns.
Physical prints and albums will stand the test of time. Your prints and albums will never fail, become corrupt or obsolete. At Veronika Gant Photography, I offer beautiful archival prints that are rating 100 years of life and gorgeously designed albums. Select backup digital files are included with the purchase of albums and prints. Read more about The Power of Prints.
