And now, your baby is about to turn 1! Such a Big Milestone!
If you're like a lot of the soon-to-be-parents of a one year old I meet, you may be a little stressed out planning the birthday party. And who can blame you! After all, your baby is about to turn one. Believe me, I can absolutely relate.
Let me tell you something, though. You are going to be so happy making the decision to book a cake smash session with me. In this moment, we are going to create memories that will show how special a one year old is. And every single picture we take will showcase the pure joy of being one.
I would love to meet you and hear more about your cutie that is about to turn ONE or have a BIG Milestone! We will decide on a date, time that works best, and Package - and if you have already a preference - please let me know the theme of the Smash!
Your preferred session date and time is confirmed once the contract is signed and retainer paid.
Once all done, we can move to the next step!
1. Say Hello
I love planning these sessions - from your vision, to the theme, to bringing everything to life on the day of the session, Cake Smash Sessions are the most FUN!
I do have a large collection of Backdrop Choices to use for Petite Packages or your choice of any themes (on Deluxe or Royal Packages).
3. session day
When Magic Happens!
As in any new environment, some babies are shy and might take a bit to get to their smiley selves! Read my Client Guide / Blog for extra tips on how to get your little one ready for the day!
Any packages you choose - you will have included the Theme - Cake - Outfits* and Family Portraits!
You are more than welcome to bring extra outfits, but typically in a session, a baby can resist to maximum 1-2 changes and the Smash.
4. after the session
Your Online Cake Smash Proof gallery will be ready in 3-5 business days.
Once received, take your time to choose your images you wish to keep forever! Once you share your favorite images through your client portal, i will have them ready for you in 2 to 3 weeks (** i do take rush requests, let's chat).
5. your wall art products
I am working with local artists to ensure i offer the best quality Wall Art for you to choose from!
The Cake Smash session brings the cutest pictures - and it would be a shame to let them stay on your computer - let me help you choose the perfect print product for you to admire them Every. Single. Day

"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!"
