I am so glad I phoned you when I saw your article in take abreak it’s something you want dream in doing and you think how on earth will I look that good but I can’t stop looking at the photos and think wow is that really me. So lady’s if you are reading this then don’t be scared just phone Mikaela she will put you at ease I was nervous but after a little while it didn’t worry me at all I loved every moment of it I still can’t stop talking about it. believe me it be the best thing you will ever do it should be on every lady’s list of things to do. So thank you again Mikeala I’m so happy xxxxxxxReplyCancel

    I remember, it was Winter 2012! Weather outside was dull and depressing. As I drove through beautiful surroundings approaching Mikaela’s Studio, I felt a warm and calming sensation… I parked up in the drive and Mikaela welcomed me and made me feel so comfortable… When I walked Into the studio, wow! The rooms were absolutely gorgeous and the decor was exquisite. I was offered a glass of champagne which I took and sipped on whilst conversing with Mikaela. I felt so comfortable and then… I was made to feel like a Superstar… Hair and make up was done to perfection and the pictures were incredible! I looked WOW (must I say myself). I usually don’t like getting pictures taken but Mikaela really knew how to direct me and the correct positions, super talented Ms. Morgan. Last few words Ladies, later on in life, this is something to look back at and think, “That was me”… An amazing experience. Lots of Love to you Mikaela, well done and gracias xReplyCancel

    Thank you for a brilliant photo shoot. The photos are stunning and I never thought I could look so good at the age of 48!

    I would definitely recommend Mikeala to my friends, it was a wonderful experience that every woman should treat themselves to.ReplyCancel

    My photo shoot with Mikaela was well worth the 172 mile round trip :-)
    I researched many Boudoir sites locally but Mikaela,s stood out from the rest !
    I am 50 years of age , a curvy 14 and a mother of 4 and wanted some pictures that still looked like me and reflected my personality.
    The photo,s were a surprise Anniversary and Birthday gift for my husband and he was totally surprised and knew nothing about it until he opened them .
    He loved them.
    I am very proud of them , and my three daughters think they are amazing too .
    I am quiet a confident person on the whole , but was very nervous on the day, this passed very quickly as Mikaela made the whole experience very relaxing , so much so that I had some shot,s taken without clothes and these turned out to be among my favourites.
    Thank you once again Mikaela :-) ReplyCancel

  • Amanda Hutchinson - July 30, 2013 - 4:33 pm

    I wanted to give my (now) husband a gift the night before our wedding that would surprise him and a friend suggested giving him some photos, I am not a very confident person but after some research found Mikaela and her reviews convinced me to give it a go! It was a fantastic experience, a real boost and I was amazed that the person in the photos was actually me. My husband also loved the photos! I would recommend any lady who is in two minds to definitely give it a go!ReplyCancel

  • Eileen - June 1, 2013 - 12:22 pm

    Michaela, I just want to thank you for how relaxed you made me feel on the day and for making the so experience so good. Even though I had quite firm ideas about what I wanted, I didn’t actually think I’d manage to get photos of myself looking like that so I’m absolutely thrilled with the whole thing – this was my 30th birthday present to myself and I would recommend every woman turning 30 to record how they look at this age! I’ll look back on these photos when I’m 80 and smile!ReplyCancel

  • Tracey - March 11, 2013 - 4:30 pm

    Hi Michaela, I just wanted to say a big thank you for my photos! I wanted to surprise my husband for our second anniversary and guess what.. he loves them!! You made the day such fantastic fun, I was at ease as soon as I walked through the door (or maybe it was after the first sip of sparking wine!) You were great at taking the time to get the photos you knew I would love and I felt like a star for the day. What a wonderful experience. Thank you so very much. xxReplyCancel

  • Alina - February 11, 2013 - 12:23 pm

    I’d like to thank Mikaela for a wonderful adventure. In general I feel very uncomfortable in posing for pictures. I was quite stressed when my husband asked for a set of boudoir pictures as a Christmas gift. But Mikaela does wonders. She is very approachable and professional. If you don’t have a clear idea what you would like to do, you can fully trust her recommendations. She made the whole experience very relaxing and fun. The pictures are more beautiful than I could imagine. Thanks again!

    I contacted Mikaela with a plan of having some photos done as a wedding present for my partner, I was very nervous on the morning . I have to say within minutes I was made to feel at home, the studio was lovely ,relaxing and welcoming. I never thought I’d be able to relax but Mikaela soon put me at ease, I am so pleased with the pictures…I cannot wait to show them off!! …..in fact I ordered a couple of extra prints as a Birthday surprise as well!! …if your wondering if you have the courage to do it….do it is all I can say its a real boast for the confidence and great fun …..thanks so much Mikaela I will try to get a picture of his reaction when he see’s them I think it will be one very large smile xReplyCancel

      I would love to see his reaction to your photos Jo! xReplyCancel

  • Ali - January 5, 2013 - 10:45 am

    Hi Mikaela,
    I really want to thank you for a fantastic shoot yesterday. I’ve had professional photoshoots in the past but I can say without a shadow of a doubt, the experience I had with you is by far the best and proved to be worth every penny.

    Not only are you extremely good at what you do but you’re also wonderfully approachable, friendly and a joy to work with. All these things helped put me at ease from the moment I met you.

    There are few people in your industry who are as talented, professional and dedicated as yourself. I felt like nothing was too much trouble for you and it was clear to me how much you cared about giving me photos I would LOVE rather than just like.
    I really love all my photos, I never realised I could look so good! I’ve already raved about you to all my friends and like me they agree your work has the ‘wow’ factor.

    I know for a fact that I’ll never use anybody else but you whenever I need more photos.

    Once again thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I’m truly grateful.

    I would like to say a big thank you to Mikaela for such a great confidence building experience and a wonderful day at her Studio. I wanted a photo shoot done for my Partner’s Christmas present but was apprehensive about doing it, especially as I am in the more senior age group, but I need not have worried as Mikaela made me feel so at ease from the minute I arrived. I took my friend with me, and along with Liz the makeup artist, we had a great girls’ day out. I was amazed at the photos, and if I hadn’t recognised the clothes, I would never have thought it was me! My partner’s sharp intake of breath when he opened the photo box on Christmas morning was something I will never forget. I just wished I had taken a photo of that moment. He was absolutely thrilled and still has them up in the bedroom trying to decide which one to have enlarged to put on the wall. Thank you Mikaela for making me feel proud of myself and for giving so much pleasure to my Partner!ReplyCancel

  • Angela - December 23, 2012 - 9:25 pm

    Hi Mikaela,
    Just to say a BIG thankyou for the photo shoot and the end results! I gave them to my husband on our anniversary and …. he was so amazed …. it took a while for him to speak! The whole experience was such great fun from start to finish. At the age of 53 I have discovered a hidden me :-)and I know without a doubt that I will be booking another session next year …. can’t wait!

  • Joanna Farnsworth - December 8, 2012 - 8:54 pm

    Mikaela,

    Thank you so much for such an amazing special experience, for many years I felt conscious of my image and despite what my husband always tells me never actually felt attractive.

    Suzanne did a great job with the make up which was beautiful but still me and gave me the confidence to have my photographs taken and has given me the confidence to wear more make up – I have never been one to want to draw attention to myself.

    It was so nice bringing my husband to review the photographs and has been such a special experience for us as a couple, for my husband to tell me how beautiful I look and for me to give him a special set of shots that express my utter devotion to him.

    I wish everyone could experience what it is to feel beautiful and I can’t thank you enough for making that happen.

      Hi Joanna, you are very welcome! I am so pleased that your boudoir photography has helped you realise what a beautiful woman you are :-) xReplyCancel

  • Pippa - October 18, 2012 - 5:49 pm

    Thank you so much for my photos!!

    My boyfriend Dean bought me them as a moving in present and i can’t believe how good i look in them! I would reccomend this experience to anyone! Mikaela is very proffesional, friendly and a great laugh. I’ve had previous body issues that i have now overcome and was able to feel at ease whilst doing this shoot. I’ve told all my friends about the shoot and it was definately worth the trip down as i live in Derbyshire.

    Once again, Many Thanks!! Pippa and DeanReplyCancel

  • Christine - October 17, 2012 - 11:12 am

    Hi Mikaela,
    Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for my pictures – I am so pleased with them. I haven’t waited till our anniversary to give my husband his pressie as I couldn’t!

    When I gave him the photos he was speechless – he asked me to say how amazing he thought they were and that you were fantastic at what you do. What you offer is such a confidence boost, I’ve never enjoyed having pictures taken or looking at ones of myself – but these will most definately bring a cheeky smile to my face whenever I see them.

    Thank you once again for turning something scary into something to treasure.
    Best wishes
    ChristineReplyCancel

    My day with Mikaela is one I will take with me forever. It was fantastic. I was so unsure of how I would go about the day but as soon as I arrived I knew I had made the right decision. She is a beautiful photographer and an inspirational lady. We have remained in contact ever since and I intend to use her as my photographer when I get my yoga website up and running. Don’t even hesitate about having a shoot. You will come out feeling alive and fabulous and the most beautiful woman on the planet. As for the photos. Wow. I am speechless still when I look at them. Thanks Mikaela. I’m still smiling. XReplyCancel

  • Katie - July 1, 2012 - 5:29 pm

    Thank you for a fabulous day. I felt completly at ease & had great fun. This should be on everyones to-do list. A fantastic experience that made me feel a million dollars & loved the pictures thank you again. xxxReplyCancel

  • Naomi Jay - May 31, 2012 - 9:52 pm

    After being 15 mins late I was welcomed into the studio with a big smile and a glass of champers which was really needed to calm the nerves. I had all kind of thoughts going through my head one of which was ‘how on earth are a few pics going to make me look sexy?’ had my hair and makeup done which was fabulous, then came the chat about different shots and different outfits. I was pretty much giggling all the way through bit Mikaela kept me at ease with her kindness and expertise. Once I received the photos I couldn’t believe for one minute it was me, I looked ‘gorgeous’ (if I do say so myself!!!) I felt very proud of myself and have now got a new found self confidence which I believe I never had. All of this was down to Mikaela and making me feel special. Would recommend it to anyone. Go for it, you’ll have a ball (and as much champers as you want) xReplyCancel

  • Josie McDonald - May 16, 2012 - 12:44 pm

    Mikaela: I live in Idaho (USA) … I found your website through an article posted on Lingerie Diva. After checking out your work, I just HAD to let you know how amazing your photography is!! How I wish you were here in the states or I was there!! You are definitely one of the BEST!!!ReplyCancel

  • Onpailin - May 11, 2012 - 6:03 pm

    I was very nervous about the shoot but Mikaela was fantastic, really professional but a great laugh, she put me at ease and made me feel comfortable and confidence. I had great experience and a great fun day too and thank you so much for the amazing photos Mikaela ^_^ Highly recommended *****

  • Lucie Watson - April 5, 2012 - 10:24 am

    Took me the whole year to pick up my courage to do something like this to surprise my husband on our 10th year wedding anniversary.
    When I arrived at the studio was impressed with the comfortable environment, there was a make up lady who made me feel like a film star, very feminine, the make up & hair was amazing… The whole photo shoot was wonderful, I was very nervous but ended up having fun, felt really beautiful, Mikaela was so funny and made me feel “at home”. A week later I viewed the photos, I loved them all! It was very difficult to pick up my favourite ones!
    Serious self -booster, I think every woman should experience something like this!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly Carless - March 25, 2012 - 6:28 pm

    My boudoir experience was the best thing I have done in a very long time.

    I was nervous but was put completely at ease by Mikaela and was made to feel not only extremely comfortable, but really confident and sexy!!

    I was over the moon with the images that Mikaela produced. They are so flattering and my husband thought they were amazing! I was so pleased with how I looked that I even showed a few friends, something I never thought I’d have the confidence to do.

    If you are considering a boudoir shoot, my advice is do it! It will be one of the best decisions you can make for your body confidence.ReplyCancel

  • Teresa - March 24, 2012 - 3:11 pm

    I’ve been thinking of doing a boudoir shoot for several years, but had never found the right combination of location, make-over and of course, style of photos. I eventually chose Strictly Boudoir pretty much because I adored the photos on the site.

    Everything about my photo-shoot was enjoyable, from having my hair and make-up done, to the actual photography. Mikaela took time to talk me though what we were going to do and make suggestions after reviewing the bits and pieces I had bought with me.

    When I saw the pictures, I was completely stunned. I couldn’t believe I could look so glamourous. Mikaela definitely works miracles. I’ve already recommended her to a good friend.ReplyCancel

  • Jo - January 11, 2012 - 1:48 pm

    Mikaela, thanks for such a memorable experience!
    I had not had a photoshoot before & was admittedly a bit nervous. However, you put me at ease straight away & I ended up having so much fun!
    You captured the mood & style I wanted perfectly…thank you so much :) ReplyCancel

  • Lia - January 9, 2012 - 10:25 pm

    Having finally plucked up the courage to do something so “wild “!!! I had one of the most special days ever !!! Mikaela , put me at ease , empathised with me and totally understood where I was coming from , to the point I was able to relax enough to have my boudoir pics taken …and OMG …The result !! absolutely amazing !!!! I totally and thoroughly recommend Mikaela , She certainly knows what she’s doing …The whole pamper / photographic experience is fantastic , and the results are totally amazing ….well worth it !!! THANK YOU Mikaela xxReplyCancel

  • Sandy Moretta - January 5, 2012 - 4:33 pm

    Mikaela is truly amazing.

    I have known Mikaela for some years as she has shot weddings for me in my work capacity.

    I was hesitant, at 45, to do the shoot, but knew if I could trust anyone it was Mikaela.

    For any ladies out there worrying about ‘taking the plunge’ I had a really fun day and don’t regret it at all – Mikaela made me look like I haven’t looked in years (or possibly never did) and yet the photos are still very much me.

    I cannot thank you enough Mikaela and will recommend you to clients and friends.

    Thank You!ReplyCancel

  • Natalie Smith - January 5, 2012 - 2:52 pm

    Mikaela… We met just a few weeks before Christmas when I had finally decided to “bear all” my very gorgeous man! Lets just say he LOVED the photos!
    Thank you for making me feel comfortable and sexy… (I never thought that would happen!)
    Speaking for the “chunky” ladies out there I can tell you Mikaela works magic with her positions and lighting to make you look amazing…
    Not only did I get brilliant pictures but I had a really fun evening and laughed more than I looked sultry!
    I 100% recommend Mikaela and am currently persuading my girlfriends to go for it!
    Thanks xxxxxReplyCancel

  • Kim Lo - September 7, 2011 - 7:57 pm

    Mikaela. I can’t thank you enough for the amazing photos. It was so much fun and an utter pleasure to work with you and you have given me something to be really proud of. I will show off my photos (and scars) with pride. Thoroughly recommended. KimReplyCancel

  • Chantal Gibbs-Jones - June 24, 2011 - 5:44 pm

    My boudoir shoots with Mikaela were absolutely amazing! Had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs! The atmosphere was completely relaxed and laidback. Had fun experimenting with different themes and ideas. Would definitely like to do it all over again ;-) ReplyCancel

  • Ruth Tyda-Wright - June 20, 2011 - 3:38 pm

    Mikaela- I wish you all the best with boudoir photography- you made me look and feel amazing, gorgeous and sexy :))
    I may not have the magazine “perfect” body, but my goodness I felt every inch the 1950′s glamour-puss that is desperate to break out of me!
    Your hairdresser and make-up artist (and you!) made me feel at ease and created the look we were going for in what felt like an instant- you were all wonderfully professional without losing the friendly touch which us women need when baring more than our souls ;)
    I could not have wished for a better day or more jaw-dropping photo’s, from the very core of my new found body confidence- THANK YOU xxReplyCancel

  • Gemma Robinson - June 20, 2011 - 10:48 am

    Having booked my Boudoir shoot with Mikaela I was very nervous. I am a size 14, mother and have a body to prove it.

    Mikaela was fantastic, really professional but a great laugh. I was very relaxed within the first few photos being taken and Mikaela was excellent.

    I had such a great day and was surprised at how sad I was when we came to the end of our shoot.

    The images are jaw dropping. I had no idea I could look like that, very pleased. My confidence has rocketed and I cant wait to give my husband to be his album the night before our wedding.

    Could not recommend this experience more, superb!!!ReplyCancel
