A little about me...
So I started Mikaela Jade Photography in December 2012.
I have always had a love for photography, since the age of 10 I have been snapping away but never thought I could actually do it as a job.
My ambition was to teach Art, so I completed an Art and Design course and in 2013 I graduated with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art. After graudating I then completed a PGCE (secondary education).
Both of my art courses incorporated photography, during the final year of my degree I started Mikaela Jade Photography. I was a mobile photographer for 3 and a half years and now I have my own studio which I LOVE!
I do teach as well, luckily for me A level photography! I am able to use the darkroom (film photography) and experiment with lots of vintage techniques as well as keep up to date with current artists/photographers!
In March 2017 I completed my Newborn Licentiate Qualification with the Master Photographers Association. This means I am fully qualified in newborn photography, health and safety and producing images of a high standard. (To find out more about the MPA please visit their website!)
My aim is to create images that are timeless, simple and elegant with a Fine Art element!
When I am not taking photographs I am either spending time with my puppy Flo or creating memories with my beautiful friends and family! I also continue my own art practice creating collages, fine art portraits, self portraits and a bit of sculpture!

We had a fantastic experience with Mikaela for our newborn shoot. She was friendly, patient and the photos are simply amazing! Would 100% recommend to anyone for any photography needs. Thanks Mikaela!

Thanks so much for Tallulahs christening photos, really enjoyed having them done as saved me a massive worry of taking them and could just enjoy the day. Photos are gorgeous!

Such an amazing photographer and person! Thank you for my photo shoot last week the photos are fantastic and great to use for my promotional use! Mikaela makes you feel at ease whilst having the photos taken and is also very good value for money with extremely competitive pricing! I will be back and so will my friends and family! X

Just had the first part of our baby package which was the bump shoot, so so happy with the images! Couldn't recommend enough, Mikaela has an amazing eye for detail and knows what works and what doesn't. I literally cannot wait for part two and having our baby girl photographed! Someone that will make you feel relaxed and comfortable - if your thinking about a bump shoot definitely choose Mikaela Jade Photography!!

This woman is fantastic!! Has done several dance shoots for me, including head shots, location and performance ones, and all the photos are excellent! Great eye for detail and unique images, and would highly recommend!

Absolutely over the moon with all of our photos taken by Mikaela during our 3rd photoshoot with her. Very talented lady, Mikaela captured so many lovely natural photos and the shoot was really fun, she has great ideas that capture amazing photos xx

LOOK NO FURTHER! Mikaela is truly a ONE OF A KIND photographer which you will quickly find out once you spend some time looking at her website, facebook page etc. She sees things in such a different and unique way and is very outside the box. We use her every year and cannot believe the types of pictures we have. So many people have commented that they didn't realise pictures could look so good. If that isn't enough to persuade you, just give Mikaela a call and talk to her...Seriously, you will not be disappointed...Mikaela is really worth the money you pay.

Mikaela made us feel very welcome and comfortable , we where amazed at how well she managed to settle our very unsettled baby girl which is something we where anxious about upon arrival. The shoot went really well and we cannot wait to see the finished images. We will without a doubt be recommending Mikaela to friends and family and be returning ourselves in the future thank you for such a loverly experience Mikaela from my little family x

Mikaela is a fantastic photographer who makes you feel so at ease and comfortable throughout. She had so much patience and a lovely manner with our little boy during his newborn photoshoot, capturing photos which were creative and beautiful!

Mikaela was brilliant and so patient with our labradoodle, Charlie - who made it his mission to move around as much as possible! We're so happy with the photos; so much so that one of them is now hanging in our kitchen! Would definitely use Mikaela again for photos.

Mikaela took photos of my puppy who was just a matter of months old and she was absolutely fantastic. Totally accommodating to a little dog and didn't mind him being naughty! The photos were outstanding I would definitely recommend her!
