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!
When to book your newborn session?
Babies have usually photographed anywhere from 8-14 days.
With that being said, it is best to book the newborn session while pregnant after the last visit with your OBGYN doctor.
If you fill out the form before the due date we will set the photography session date based on your true due date, scheduled labor induction day, or c-section.
If your baby is already born you can still fill out the form on this page and request availability but we can’t guarantee Veronika will be available.
We understand how expensive everything is connected with a pregnancy, having a new baby this is why our studio offers payment plan without any interest charges.
While creating beautiful portraits for you is important, the safety of your baby is our top priority.
Veronika: “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.”
Guidelines For Veronika Gant Photography Studio
COVID-19, RSV and other viral disses
To be sure our private studio is safe for my clients, me, and my family, I created guidelines that should help prevent the spreading of the Coronavirus and other viral disses.
Each client coming to Veronika Gant Photography studio must understand and accept the risk of COVID-19 and come at their own risk. We will do our best to protect you and your family, but we are not taking responsibility if you get signs of this disease after the session.
Before entering the photography studio, each person has to take off their shoes.
Our photography studio has a limitation of sessions and people entering the studio. We will accept only one or two sessions per day – depending on what type of session it is, so we have time to sanitize everything after the session, and we will take a maximum of 5 people per session.
Veronika and her assistant will be wearing a mask during the newborn session.
After each photography session, we will sanitize the area, and everything we will get in touch with proper products.
Thank you to all of my clients for their patience and understanding that health, safety, and following government guidelines are my highest responsibility.
Thank you all!
Package options for Newborn Photography
We offer custom packages of San Antonio newborn photography. This way we are 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 Veronika 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 our 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 parents & Siblings. It’s important to take time and prepare for the newborn session.

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, we offer beautiful archival prints that are rating 100 years of life and gorgeously designed albums. Read more about The Power of Prints.
