About me

Mihaela Mocanasu Photography

Hi there! My name is Mihaela Mocanasu, an award-winning professional photographer based in Stanmore, London, with a solid drive to capture life’s most important moments and turn them into beautiful wall art. My big smile and positive outlook are a testament to my belief that life is meant to be cherished, even during its ups and downs.

Award-winning professional photographer, specializing in maternity, newborns, cake smash and family photography

Life goes by too quickly, and everything moves at a fast pace. This realization is what sparked my desire to stop time and preserve life’s precious moments through the art of photography.

I specialize in creating timeless portraits that turn into wall art to showcase your memories timelessly and beautifully. Whether it’s capturing the love and joy of a maternity photoshoot, preserving the innocence and wonder of a newborn, celebrating a child’s first birthday with a fun and memorable cake smash photoshoot, or any other essential moment in your life, I am here to help you tell your story through beautiful and meaningful images.

It is an absolute honour for me to be part of your stories and to create portraits that will serve as a lasting legacy for your children and future generations. This is what I strive to achieve with my work.

In my limited free time, I treasure every moment spent with my family and cherish the smiles I share with my few but wonderful friends. I also enjoy running around with Blitz, our mischievous Labrador, who always manages to bring a smile to my face.

Let me help you create a visual timeline of your family’s memories, from pregnancy to any other significant milestone in your life, in the form of beautiful wall art and portraits that you can cherish for years to come.



Maternity Photoshoot

A maternity photoshoot is suitable for expectant mothers up until 32 weeks of pregnancy, when their baby bump is in its lovely shape and they are comfortable to pose. This is the ideal time to capture the beauty and excitement of motherhood before the baby comes.



Newborn Photoshoot

A newborn photoshoot is best done in the first few weeks of a baby's life, specifically between 5 days and 3 weeks old. During this time, newborns are often very sleepy and flexible, allowing for easier posing and more natural, beautiful photographs to be taken.

Cake Smash


Cake Smash Photoshoot

A cake smash and splash photoshoot is a memorable celebration of a baby's first birthday. It captures the excitement of their first taste of cake and first splash in water through playful photos. A special and fun way to remember this important milestone.
