Snow angel

 

At Kissed By Light, we love to go big in understated ways! No setup is left without careful thought and planning, and no one look is created the same. Our studio is not a very large space by no means, but it is full of wonderful settings that we play with during every session. And just as we love to make every photoshoot extra unique, we like to recommend our muses embrace their creative side, enabling them to fulfill even their boldest ideas. Have always wanted to try on pin-up fashion? Go for it! (And here is an example of one such session). Love cosplay and fantasy looks? A boudoir session is perfect for that! (See our past fantasy session). Or perhaps you would like to add a few popular culture looks to your classic boudoir ones? There is no better place than a fully customizable studio space! All in all, we always make sure to leave some room for even the biggest of ideas, creating photo sessions that have both classic elements and more fun, creative ones as well.

Needless to say, when it is not your first boudoir photo session, you will likely be even more tempted to try on something extra special for your shoot! Such was the case when we got a chance to work with our wonderful returning muse Miss N! This year, she came back for a session that was particularly important for it was to become an anniversary gift for her husband! Over the years, Miss N. and our team have experimented with some amazing boudoir ideas and unique concepts, and, this time, we were set on creating something extra special and grand! She came up with the fun idea of wearing gorgeous angel wings for one of her looks! And she brought a beautiful, sparkling body to match them! We completed this look with a pair of white stockings and pumps for that extra VS angels’ feel.

For the setups, our team has put together a series of understated yet vibrant backgrounds that would bring out the colors and textures of this look. We used one of our silver satin fabrics and a contemporary black background for this look and played with both artificial and natural light to emphasize the look’s sparkling personality.

We are absolutely in love with how this gorgeous look has turned out! We think Miss N. truly shines in it and was born to wear angel wings!

We hope that you enjoy this photo series! And you may see the rest of Miss N’s anniversary shoot here – One of a kind anniversary surprise

30 never looked so good

 

 

What does an ideal birthday celebration look like? There is no one answer, of course, as it is a highly individual affair, but there are usually a few things we can find in common. Many a time, it is the day we bring together our friends and family to celebrate, have fun, and enjoy to the fullest. And while the social aspect of this celebration often takes center stage, we believe that taking some personal time around this day is very important. Time to acknowledge our hard-earned accomplishments, the path we have shaped for ourselves, the lessons that we have learned, our ever-evolving self-image, and the body that carries us through this life. And, of course, it never hurts to pamper ourselves, check off a few bucket list items, and find empowerment in what brings us joy. 

Boudoir photo session can be a very lovely gift to yourself on this important day! Our team loves making it extra special, ensuring that it is everything it ought to be to celebrate the birthday to the fullest: pampered, fun, and empowering. We celebrate personal style, creativity, and beauty, capturing some striking photos to preserve the moment in time. And these photos become proof that we truly only get better with age!

Recently, we had the great pleasure of celebrating the 30th birthday of our lovely muse Miss C. She came to the studio with some great ideas for her very own boudoir, and wanted to capture not only some striking lingerie looks but also a few photos featuring her birthday cake! We worked together to expand on the theme, creating looks that were diverse, fun and matched her great style. From a beautiful red garter with satin red pumps to a timeless black look with a red rose, everything complimented Miss C. beautifully, while the studio’s classic setups maintained an elegant theme throughout. We think that the resulting photos speak for themselves!

Celebrating milestones

 

We believe that, all in all, we are in the business of celebrating life! Our photo sessions celebrate milestones, femininity in all its shapes and forms, fitness, beauty, achievements, new families, and new beginnings. We are here to capture some of life’s most wonderful and fleeting moments, so that they may forever be preserved in their photographic time capsules. It is something that we believe to be quite important based on our own and our muses’ experiences and like to approach from many different angles. For one, there is the individuality of every one of our muses that we aim to bring out using different styling and posing techniques. Then we love to explore the story itself by revealing it in a series of specially tailored set ups. And last, but not least, we use a variety of different presentation methods to create beautiful printed products that may keep these moments accessible and preserved in time.

Oftentimes, these stories don’t end within one session and continue as we celebrate our muses’ next milestones. This is when we would often continue the storyline, paying an hommage to the past captures while creating something new and unique. And such sessions are always so very special for us, as we feel honored to be there for different stages of our muses’ lives.

We had a great pleasure of celebrating one such new milestone with our lovely returning muse Miss C. She first came to us to celebrate an anniversary of her wedding and capture her beautiful wedding dress in more detail. (See this photo session here – reminiscing her day). This time, we got to celebrate a new milestone as Miss C. and her husband were now expecting their first baby! It was a whole lot of fun to work together again and explore this incredible moment in depth. We created some classic, light and airy looks and contrasted them with a series of contemporary, artificial light set ups. This combination is quite reminiscent of her last session and yet was made to be entirely new and unique! And, this time, we even got to feature her wonderful husband in a few striking photos of them together.

We think this session turned out very beautifully, and are very excited to show you a little peak into it. And you can check out our Instagram for the latest behind the scenes.

Let’s play

 

 

We believe that boudoir plays by no rules. Aside from photography’s more technical aspects such as angles, aperture, lighting, focal points, and other specialized details (which we take fully upon ourselves at Kissed By Light Studio), it is a genre that is meant to liberate rather than constrain. It is meant to help free yourself from personal as well as society’s imposed limitations, and begin a journey of self discovery. We have met so many women that would come to experience a photo session for themselves in order to break away from such silly limitations as age (because nobody is ever too old to start celebrating their body), other people’s opinion (because nobody can tell you who to be or what to wear), and even personal opinion (because everyone can step into the role of a boudoir model and look spectacular).  A very unique and private experience, a photo session can be the outlet to reveal the very things we may have been hiding from the world and celebrate all the aspects of who we truly are.

Among boudoir’s many variations, there is one that we absolutely love to explore – the BDSM one. Because putting on constraints (that look great, of course) can actually be very liberating! It is a photography genre that can be intimidating but very beautiful when done correctly by a photographer with good experience. At our studio, all of our photographers practice in the genre and experiment with creating new looks and set ups for it. We usually have a few beautiful, BDSM style items in our closet such as corsets, lingerie, accessories, and shoes, and use them to expand on our more unique, moody boudoir stories. Such was the case with our lovely model Katrina (also our studio’s brilliant photography assistant), when we decided to put together a new photo series with the BDSM context. We worked with a variety of beautiful leather items and styled her looks to create some of our most striking photos to date!
