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!
I will be missing all my photography sessions during my maternity leave, and I promise I will be back in July maybe earlier but if someone wants to book a session with me I already booking sessions for JULY 2021!
When to book your newborn session?
Babies have usually photographed anywhere from 5-14 days.
With that being said, it is best to book the newborn session during your pregnancy.
If your baby is already born you can still fill out the form on this page and request availability but I can’t guarantee I will be available.
If you fill out the form before the due date I will set the photography 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.
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 in 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.

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 Prep Tips
The newborn session generally takes about 1.5 hours, depending on if you book only a standard newborn session or you add on other photography services (extra setups using different wooden props with different backdrops) or portraits of the baby with Parent & Siblings.

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.

Makeup & Hair Services
Add-on Parents and Siblings Session
Why professional makeup and hairstyle is important for your photography session? I don’t know if you know my full story but I become a photographer accidental way. I was passionate about makeup and hairstyle and I needed more portfolio so I started taking pictures of my clients and later professional models. This way I fall in love with photography.
I learned how these two different services are strongly connected together.
During my photography career, I also found out how important is to work with just one makeup artist. We are humans with different tastes and preferences. I love consistency in my work and the same I love to see the same in my client’s skin.
I highly recommend booking with my makeup artist and hairstylist Cypress Gorres.
Like I mentioned I was a professional makeup artist myself so I know what I am expecting from a makeup artist. I found Cypress myself and tested her with my beauty commercial work. From that day I use her for all my portrait sessions.
Cypress has her own home beauty studio located 10 min. away from my studio so you don’t have to drive across all San Antonio and stress yourself.
