Happy Family Day, Dear Ones!
Today, the feelings of gratefulness are filling our hearts as our Kissed By Light members all have own families by now, with only Veronika being just a few days away from a being a mom (we are so excited for you, Veronika!). Families are like links of humanity, all being extended, mothers to grandmothers, cousins, aunts, brothers, we are all deeply interconnected. The traditions and heirlooms, idiosyncrasies and family stories are passed and shared, and affect how we show up in this world, as we inevitably carry our ‘family’ into everything we do.
For women, the strength, patience, awareness and appreciation that we nurture while being mothers and running households are not comparable to the times of being single. Love, collaboration, taking care of each other, learning to take responsibility, share, work and all the wonderful celebrations make family a perfect place for figuring out who we truly are, to test our boundaries (and those of others), learn many laws of negotiation, and grow. As such, Family truly deserves an honourable day, the celebration, and an occasion to take a pause, reflect, say thanks to each other, and be together to celebrate the very connection shared.
Using this occasion we would like to remind about our ongoing Family Photoshoot Promotion until March 31, 2018. With a booking of a Family Photoshoot you get all the images that you select printed on a top grade photographic paper (size 5×7). The prints are perfect for your family albums, beautiful wall decor and simply storing them in a box as your family heirlooms (the box comes with the prints). To book your session and for package details, contact us at [email protected]
Our studio wishes you a Happy Family Day. May Love, Joy, and Happiness be ever present in your homes.
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 photographers, we think that a role of professional family photography is very important. Capturing beautiful memories shared by families and creating masterpieces to be cherished and looked at for years to come is our goal. To see our beautiful Family Sessions, follow the link: Family Studio Photography.

Why is this promo so exciting? You can use the prints for family albums, to create a beautiful wall decor or simply store them in a box (comes with the prints).

Getting ready for your first boudoir photoshoot can be a stressful task. Selecting the outfits, choosing lingerie, shopping, can all be very time consuming and daunting, especially not knowing what to expect at the photo session and once you arrive in our photo studio. So we’ve made it easy for you to pack your bags by putting together a list of must-have items that work for anyone. And if you are still in doubt after reading our guide, simply follow the rule: the more the merrier. Our style experts will help you choose your final outfits in the studio, so relax and enjoy this exciting experience!
1. BRA SETS
A well fitted good push-up bra with a matching set of underwear is a perfect start to your boudoir photoshoot lingerie collection. It is best to bring a variety of bras – play with colours and textures that suit you and that you like. From gentle pastels to bright colours, to classic black sets, any of these sets can work, but most importantly – they have to fit you well. For outfits you’ve had for a while, we always recommend to try them on a day or two before the session to make sure they fit you just as well as you remember them. You can also complement some of your bra sets collection with a garter belt and stockings to achieve that classic boudoir look!
A bodysuit is an all-in-one outfit that we highly recommend to bring, as it works for most body types and is a great way to rock your curves! It is very versatile and can be paired up with a blazer or even a leather jacket (channel your inner Kate Moss here!). Bodysuits are very feminine and will always work in classic black (or white for the lighter, more bridal look) or any other colour that gives you confidence (think bright reds for the femme fatale twist!).
3. BLACK & NUDE HIGH HEELS
Even if you are not so keen on wearing high heels, we highly recommend to bring at least two pairs – your highest pair of black and nude heels or pumps. They can pair up with pretty much anything and will give your legs that extra length and your mind that extra boost of confidence for a more polished boudoir look. Don’t think about comfort here – you will not be wearing them for a whole day in the studio, so feel confident to skip the comfort for the looks here.
4. COMFY ROBE & HOME SLIPPERS
Now for the extra comfort while you are in the studio, we recommend to bring your comfiest robe and home slippers to change into between the takes and while sitting in for the make-up (on average about 1.5hrs, which is a lot of sitting!). Don’t tie your robe too tightly to avoid lines on your abdomen and bring comfy slippers to walk around the studio and while sitting, as socks will have to come off at least an hour before the shoot in order to avoid lines on ankles. Besides, wearing familiar items will relax you and make you feel at least a little bit like home!
5. YOU OUTFIT
This is your moment to get creative during your photo session – bring a unique outfit you love or want to experiment with, your favourite outfit that reflects your personality or anything else you want to try – from a cosy favourite sweater and over-the-knee socks to your partner’s favourite sports hat and shirt, to an elegant gown, to that glamorous outfit you never had the occasion to wear – now is your chance! We are always up to get creative and to make this look unique and very YOU!
We always say: it is great to come prepared and ready for your boudoir photoshoot, but after all, the most beautiful accessory is your body, confidence and a smile! If you are worried about not having enough outfits, an Artistic Nude look is always an option with any session. As photographers, we think there is nothing more beautiful than a nude female silhouette and we will be thrilled to capture you in the most natural look of all!
After hearing from our clients and friends about the fun experience that pole dancing is, we’ve finally decided to give it a go for our studio team outing a few months ago. While researching various studios in Toronto, we chose Brass Vixens pole dancing studio because of their convenient location and a group package. Upon arrival we were given sky high heels and were escorted to our personal room where each one of us was assigned a pole. Our instructor was great – she was very professional, making our class fun and interesting, letting us learn the moves at a comfortable pace. Without having any previous dancing experience, we all felt very comfortable and at ease, surprised at what our bodies were capable of and having a blast! We found this pole dancing class to be a very liberating and empowering experience, as well as a fantastic workout. Few months later we went back to the studio to collaborate on a photoshoot with a Brass Vixens’ manager and instructor, Kori Gulotta. Kori was amazing to work with. We were very happy with the results and gave Brass Vixens one of the images in our signature silver Artisanal frame as a gift, which now decorates the wall of their Yonge street location.
Check out their studio, BrassVixens.com, and definitely give pole dancing a try if you haven’t done so already!
