A question I always get, WHO is Alexa? Actually - my husband's name and our last name initial - AlexA :).

My husband, Alex - you will meet him behind the scenes - he is my partner in all the various mini sessions I do throughout the year! My best friend and biggest supporter!

Mother of 3 little cuties (Maya, Erik and Sara) - you will see them starring in my pictures now and then.  Definitely behind the scenes, helping me create the perfect set for you!

A Look into my


1 / 2

Originally from Romania, my husband and I came to Canada in 2010! Our parents, brothers and sisters, and grandparents are still there, and needles to say we miss them dearly!

What a beautiful gift, to be able to share with them the pictures I take of our kids, and the annual Christmas Card they receive in the mail from our Toronto Christmas Mini Sessions - the smile on their face when they call us through WhatsApp to let us know they received it, is EVERYTHING.

My Favorite Things

2 / 2

I mean, who doesn't love travelling?
I love exploring, hiking, visiting and learning about new things!

My dream vacation / bucket list - is Hawaii - the landscape, flowers (I LOVE Macro photography), a dream for beautiful pictures!
With 3 kids, I highly doubt I will be taking anything more than phone pictures during our trip, but WHEN we will go there, I for sure will hire a photographer to ensure we document that time in our lives with beautiful portraits! 

Until then, Camping in Ontario is the best!

"We had our newborn session with Simina and let me tell you that she is absolutely Amazing! So warm and kind and most importantly : absolutely great with babies. She has the magic touch, as our baby let her swaddle him and change his outfit, without complaining, although he hates swaddling and changing his clothes in general. The photos turned out great. She worked with us and our ideas and we now have some great memories to print :) Thank you for everything, magic lady! We'll see you next time for our next family session.|

"We had an outdoor maternity shoot and indoor baby shoot with Simina. She is an absolutely pleasure to work with, she is very accommodating and delivers high quality work. I was amazed how calm & composed she was especially during baby shoot. Just like a true baby whisperer, she rocked my baby, gently swaddled him and captured such a peaceful photos, thank you! She is extremely professional and experienced, which helped us enjoy both sessions and cherish those moments forever, I highly recommend her to anyone."

"If you are looking to perfectly capture your family milestone moments, look no further! Simina was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Booking with her was seamless as was her flexibility when our baby came a few days early. As for the session Simina is a baby whisperer! She was able to calm our little one and get him in the zone so we could capture all the different poses we were hoping for and more. Finally the edits - WOW! With so many images to choose from it was hard to narrow down because we loved them all. Once we did the final products we got were amazing. We will cherish them for a lifetime. Thank you so much Simina; we look forward to the next session! :)"

"My family and I have had amazing experiences with Simina. She has incredible communication skills before and after the shoot as well as very accommodating and flexible. Her photos are beautiful. We had so much fun at our maternity shoot and she even posted a sneak peak a few hours later! (which is always so fun!). Do not hesitate to book with Simina, photos are so important to growing families!"
