Existing as long as the art of photography and peaking in popularity in mid 20th century, pin-up photography style hasn’t really gone out of fashion ever since. It is no wonder why – pin-up style was all about accentuating healthy female beauty and curves. Pin-up is sexy, playful and most importantly, fun! Pin-up theme elements have always been used in boudoir photography and we’ve been waiting for an opportunity to experiment and explore this flirty and feminine style. Finally, we are thrilled to share the results of a recent creative collaboration with our Pin-up themed Photoshoot contest winner, gorgeous Maddie. Being a talented burlesque dancer, Maddie was perfect for this photoshoot and took our session to another level! All fabulous lingerie pieces for this session were generously provided by the mega-talented lingerie designer, With Love Lingerie. Thank you for being our pin-up muse, Maddie!
We can’t express how much we love this perfume campaign, featuring Helena Norowicz, Poland’s oldest fashion model. A retired actress, at age 82 Helena is very active in the fashion world, has starred in numerous photoshoots and has graced the catwalk. We can’t get enough of this video and share its idea of ageless beauty and femininity.
Our family is, without doubt, the greatest wealth we will ever possess. The most precious and important people in our lives are in the family we come from and the family we create. Kids grow, get married, have children of their own, and it seems like these precious moments just fly by.

As an artist, I feel I have a responsibility to free women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. Society’s ideal of perfection is impossible to achieve.
- Peter Lindbergh
As many others, we’ve been waiting with anticipation for the release of this year’s Pirelli calendar, a project documenting over 50 years of iconic celebrity images by the most highly acclaimed photographers of the moment. This year’s calendar was shot by Peter Lindbergh, a renowned fashion photographer. As per Pirelli’s description, the 2017 calendar “conveys personality, sensitivity and the guts to be yourself”. Lindbergh’s aim for this year’s Pirelli calendar was “not shoot a calendar about perfect bodies, but to capture sensitivity and emotion, laying bare the souls of the women in the images, rendering them more naked that a nude.” The cast of this year’s Pirelli calendar is star-studded with the likes of Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Robin Wright, Zhang Ziyi and Anastasia Ignatova. “As an artist, I feel I have a responsibility to free women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. Society’s ideal of perfection is impossible to achieve”, explains Lindbergh. As photographers at Kissed by Light Studio we share Peter’s philosophy full heartedly. By photographing women in our studio in a glamorous setting, glossy fashion magazine style, we strive to prove that every woman is beautiful just the way she is, no different from the idolized beauty queens gracing fashion magazine covers. We applaud Pirelli Calendar and Peter Lindbergh for embracing this liberating and empowering philosophy and making yet another iconic piece of art.
