Nothing but fabulous!

“My boudoir photoshoot experience with Marina has been nothing but fabulous! From the moment we met via Zoom, we connected and she made the entire experience from the photoshoot to the photo selections to receiving the final album absolutely amazing! The photos that I took and made into an album for my future husband’s wedding gift turned out absolutely stunning and made me feel so beautiful throughout the shoot! The makeup and hair was stunning! She was so understanding of what I wanted and would work with me based on my situation! 100/10 recommend working with Marina for your boudoir photoshoot!”

Bridal Boudoir Photo Session

One of the best things I've done for myself!

“As women, we can be very critical of our physical selves; but Marina enabled me to glow and shine as we documented a special time in my life – the confidence and achievements which come with age..

I am very happy to say Marina Morgan has become one of my special friends; if you are thinking about a special photography session for yourself, do it!
I would certainly do it again!

Thank you so much Marina, you are a star! xx”

“I first met Marina 6 years before I actually committed to a boudoir photography session; I had always wanted to have some beautiful photos taken of myself, and I loved what I had seen of Marina’s work… however, like many of Marina’s ladies, it takes a certain confidence, and for me, a certain time in my life when the time was right – turning 40.
And it was one of the best things I have done for myself.

Although I was still nervous and awkward at the start of the session, Marina is a very re-assuring, bubbly and professional presence; we selected my outfits together, Marina surveyed my apartment for the locations which would create the best shots, she gave great guidance about how to pose and stand (for those of us who are a little shy in front of the camera!) and she arranged a very talented make-up and hair artist – the results were stunning!

It was such a fun and exhilarating afternoon, and by the end of our session, I was quite comfortable posing on my own!
I was actually a little sad when the session was over…

Being a designer myself, I was very particular about which photos we should select for my album, which was no easy task! But Marina was very patient and ever-professional, with her careful editing and creating the best layout for my album…
The finished album is an actual work of art, which I am very proud of.

As women, we can be very critical of our physical selves; but Marina enabled me to glow and shine as we documented a special time in my life – the confidence and achievements which come with age..

I am very happy to say Marina Morgan has become one of my special friends; if you are thinking about a special photography session for yourself, do it!
I would certainly do it again!

Thank you so much Marina, you are a star! xx”

Helped me to change how i see myself as a woman.

Sister…..
I know what it feels like to have lived in a body which you have struggled to love. When I made the decision that that was not how I wanted to live my life, I found myself attracting and connecting to new experiences that I would never have allowed myself to have the freedom to explore.
 
One of these experiences was a boudoir photoshoot with Marina from SEEN Portraits. The old me would NEVER have had put my hand up and said YES for something like this. I had convinced myself that it was not for me. I was not the right body shape, size, person….. I was not worthy of being the subject of a photoshoot, or the photos would not be ‘any good’. Sisters, we are our own harshest critics. Thankfully, the time I have invested in myself helped me to change how I see myself as a woman.
 
My journey led me to say YES!!!!
And I will never forget that decision. Working with Marina, I felt understood. I felt respected. And I felt like a QUEEN! Everything a woman should feel! Marina has an eye for capturing the beauty in every moment and in every perfect imperfection.
I LOVE MY PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have absolutely no regrets. If you are on the fence or your head is saying no, it is time to change your mind!

I was able to reconnect with my femininity.

“Her empathy, compassion, and artistic talent make her a true gem in the industry. Marina not only captures extraordinary images but also creates a safe space where you can honour your journey, celebrate your resilience, and embrace your body with love and acceptance.

Thank you, Marina, for capturing my strength and beauty in a way that I will cherish forever. Your kindness and talent have given me a lasting reminder of my own triumph over adversity, and I am forever grateful for the experience we shared together.”

I had the privilege of working with Marina, for a boudoir shoot that marked a significant milestone in my life. After reaching 10yrs post a bone marrow transplant, I wanted to celebrate my strength and resilience by capturing my journey through a boudoir session, and Marina was the perfect choice.

Marina has an incredible eye for capturing beauty in its most intimate and sensual form. Throughout the shoot, Marina guided me with grace and professionalism, making sure I felt comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Her positivity and belief in my inner strength allowed me to embrace my body post-treatment with a newfound appreciation. With her guidance, I was able to reconnect with my femininity and celebrate the resilience that had carried me through the challenging times. Her attention to detail, from the perfect lighting to the ideal poses, resulted in stunning images that showcased my true essence.

I wholeheartedly recommend Marina to anyone seeking a boudoir photographer who understands the complexities of a post-cancer journey. Her empathy, compassion, and artistic talent make her a true gem in the industry. Marina not only captures extraordinary images but also creates a safe space where you can honour your journey, celebrate your resilience, and embrace your body with love and acceptance.

Thank you, Marina, for capturing my strength and beauty in a way that I will cherish forever. Your kindness and talent have given me a lasting reminder of my own triumph over adversity, and I am forever grateful for the experience we shared together.

I left feeling confident nd sexy!

“Marina is the best! My shoot felt so relaxed and I left feeling confident and sexy. The makeup process was great and also gave me the best make I’ve ever had! I got the photos done as a present for my partner (best wife am I right?) and all the nerves I had before going were quickly gone when I met Marina. She helped me pose and gave me lots of encouragement. The photos are not only great images of me but they’re art!! Thinking of getting it done? Do it!”

She makes you feel so comfortable.

Honestly in love with the boudoir style photos Marina took of me! She is very professional and makes you feel so comfortable. Being an awkward kind of girl, Marina kindly instructed me on what poses look good and I am so grateful she did. Can’t wait for my partner to see them! Thanks again Marina!

I walked out feeling like a million bucks with a newfound confidence!

Let me just say, I finally understand first hand the invigorating feeling you all have talked about afterwards.

Well, ladies… I DID THE SHOOT!!!

Let me just say, I finally understand first hand the invigorating feeling you all have talked about afterwards. I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks with a newfound confidence that I’ve never had before. It was an incredible experience! I would do this every year if possible!

I decided to do the session to help myself with my own insecurities I had with my body. I was nervous about posing and looking good, but I decided to have these photos of myself the way I am without any makeup and enhancements.

From the first phone call, Marina was down to earth and chilled, as soon as I walked in I felt like I had known her for ages. She walked me through everything and made it so much fun! I felt at ease almost immediately and for most of our session, I was laughing and having fun. Yesterday I received my photos, wow! I love how Marina captured my curves and natural beauty in her photos, it’s mesmerising! My mum loved how true my photos reflect who I am, too!

I’ve already recommended Marina to my friends, even before receiving my photos.
I know she will make them comfortable and they will love the end product. I am so proud of my pictures, I seriously want to show them to you and tell you to just do it! It’s so powerful!

She skillfully captured my figure in ways that truly surprised me, resulting in stunning photos. She effortlessly brought my vision to life, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Thank you Marina :)”

I felt so in awe! 11/10 recommend!

“I found Marina on Google and after a very prompt response from her on Facebook, it felt like my photo shoot was organised in no time!

During the photo shoot I was feeling super awkward at first, but Marina assured me that what she was getting me to do was infact going to reach our desired results, she was so patient, coaching me and showing me what to do by the end I actually felt so comfortable and not awkward at all. We even had some laughs together!

When I sat with her choosing my photos, I felt so in awe of her amazing work and in disbelief that she could make me look so good! I felt so empowered by seeing her photography and I can’t wait to show my partner for the “Big Reveal!”

I cant thank Marina enough for her amazing work, would definitely recommend her to anybody! 11/10″

Boudoir Photography Experience

She sees you as you don't see yourself.

Marina is a talented artist. My photo shoot was a fun and empowering experience. Marina was patient with me, suggesting subtle things that softened my face and body to get the perfect angle or poses. She sees you as you don’t see yourself, she captures your inner goddess and brings it out to shine.

Thank you Marina, the whole process from choosing outfits, having photo shoot to choosing final images was amazing!

i felt really empowered and proud

“Marina is an absolutely amazing photographer and I had a great experience working with her. My husband organised a boudoir photoshoot for our wedding present to each other. I felt really empowered and it is something I am proud to have done. Marina ensured the experience was comfortable and fun and very relaxed. I am absolutely in love with how the photos turned out. The whole process was very professional. If you are even thinking about doing this kind of photoshoot I have to say just go for it!

Thanks again Marina!”

I loved how she just "got" my vibe!

“I’ve had a great experience with Marina overall. I LOVED how she just “got” my vibe or the style I was looking for when creating my vision board. The/her perfectionistic streak was what got me, she was able to explain and put into words my OWN style for me, though I could not put a voice to it. She was a delight to work with, I was at ease and was guided the whole time with the posing. She also gave me a little more than what I have asked for… 😘 Very, very generous. I loved how everything turned out. The pictures are great. I will definitely come back for more!”

photos are more beautiful and natural than I could have imagined.

I engaged Marina to do a photo shoot with my parents, daughter and me and it was a wonderful experience! Marina is incredibly talented and knows how to get the best out of her subjects by making us feel happy and comfortable, and giving clear directions. Our photos are more beautiful and natural than I could have imagined. She captured our personalities perfectly. I wholeheartedly recommend Marina to anyone.
