breathtaking • moments • captured
The moment you become a mother / father - that beautiful feeling when your baby is born, you want to keep forever! Those special and precious moments the first few weeks of your baby's life, passes by so fast, and is so easy to forget...
Because I know time is passing by too fast, I am dedicated to capturing the special moments that make up a family milestone. I specialize in Newborn Photography and capture each baby's uniqueness and connection with their parents.
I understand the importance of this time in your family's life and i will provide you with beautiful memories that you can look back on and cherish for years to come. Each session is tailored to your family's needs and I will work with you to ensure that you get the perfect photos that you will be proud to show off.
We strive to tell the story of your family milestone, helping you to remember the little details and the big moments.
I would love to connect and discuss your vision for your Newborn Baby's session.
We will schedule the session 7 to 12 days after the due date (if you are still expecting) and once your little one is here, we will connect to see if the date still works or if you wish to reschedule.
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!

"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!"

fur options/ flokati
Flokati is a special type of rug that is produced in Greece from the wool of sheep. These rugs are woven in a specific way in order to create a luxurious, shag pattern. And babies love them! And images are dreamy!
Don't see a color you love? NO WORRIES! We can change it for you in post production :) Just tell me what you would like before the session to ensure we use the correct shade for editing after.
enhance your newborn session experience
Digital backgrounds are a perfect way to enhance your baby portraits, and have an amazing dreamy image to remember and admire forever!
Baby in the clouds or sleeping on a bed of flowers swing - those are safely created and images composed using digital backgrounds.
One of the images from your session - we will use it to compose the image on the digital background.
That's why is important to select it before your session, so we will pose the baby in the best way to blend in the backdrop chosen.
