Queen of hearts

 

There are undoubtedly many things to miss during this new lockdown… All the special occasions, going out, playing dress up, and so much more. But there is a silver lining in all clouds, and we think this one is really no different! We are coming across more and more stories of growth, transformation, and opportunity in our lovely clients! Some are exploring new hobbies or go in depth on their existing ones, take more avid care of health and fitness, and explore new career directions and opportunities. Truely it has been a time of self care, setting new priorities, and unapologetically going for what you truly want! We had some wonderful business portrait sessions for ladies that have decided to take the dive and start something new, and boudoir sessions to celebrate great fitness achievements and, of course, some fantastic fashion finds. We hope that this lockdown may bring us some new reasons to celebrate as we find strength and beauty in this New Year!

And, to help us all feel extra motivated on this fine January afternoon, we would like to share the latest session with our lovely and inspiring Miss T! Our returning muse (in fact, we posted her last session with us around the same time 3 years ago) has come back to capture some new great looks and add fresh photos to her boudoir collection! A mother of 3 children (yes, 3, its not a typo!) and a great fitness enthusiast, she continues to look better every year and raise the bar high!

We are very excited to share a peak into her latest boudoir photos and hope that they inspire and motivate you as much as they do for us!

An affair in black and white

 

There is a very famous quote by George Adair that says “Everything you’ve ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear.” A profound thought, it truly makes one think of all the things that matter to us yet we resist because of said fear. And it often resonates with us in our line of work too as most of our past clients have cited fear to be the major reason why they didn’t have a boudoir photography session sooner. In the end, they most often noted that it was truly liberating and exciting once they stepped into that resistance and took the plunge. And the resulting photos not only became a reward but also a reminder of their bravery, enabling them to see themselves in a new, bolder, and brighter light. Likewise, some new projects and creative ideas bring a certain onset of stress in our team ahead of execution. Yet, once complete, it usually proves to be some of our very best work yet! We can’t help but feel that, sometimes, the fear lingering inside is there not to scare away but to show what we want and what would make us grow…

Recently we got an opportunity to create a session for beautiful Miss K and step outside our natural light photography style. She came to us with a strong creative vision and a special idea in mind for bold and unique artistic nude photo series. We were very excited to work with her on bringing those ideas to life. A wonderful combination of special lighting, dark contemporary background, and beautifully powerful poses that Miss K has come up with has made for some undoubtedly striking and timeless looks. We are very excited to show you this amazing photo series and hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as we enjoyed the creation process!

 

 

Family time

 

Holidays mean different things to many people in Canada – there are all kinds of traditions and different celebrations set to take place this season among families. But there is one thing that most celebrations have in common during the holiday season – family time. Once the first jingles and Christmas lights go up, it’s hard to take your mind off all the special family moments this season has in store. At our studio, it is the season for family gifts and photo sessions. Be it daughters gifting their mothers a family photo session, new couples capturing their first holidays together with a portrait or new mothers preparing a holiday family card, there are many opportunities and they all come down to capturing that special family moment. It is always a great honour for our team to be there to organize and put together a family session on these special occasions.

Recently, we had a great pleasure of capturing portraits for Miss N’s lovely family. A new mother (she has done a maternity session with us some months before), she has timed the session so that both her mother and sister may be captured together with her baby, making it a portrait of three generations! Miss N has coordinated some beautiful and elegant looks for the session, and we created a few portraits in classic black looks, and a few in lovely white and black combinations. Looking to capture portraits that show timeless elegance and grace, we opted for classic dark and white backgrounds with different lighting. We are absolutely delighted how beautiful everything has turned out and very excited to share some of the photos from this session with you!

 

Bombshell

 

 

It is often said that there is a time and place for everything and perhaps it is true, but what happens when there is just no time or place left for things and, in particular, self expression that, deep inside, we truely want to explore? We often arrange our plans, outfits, and even choices on a menu with society established norms in mind, but when do we get to play dress up, wear those drop dead gorgeous heels stored at the back of the closet, and, perhaps, try ourselves out in a role of a femme fatale, one we secretly have stored away until that “time is right” moment?! Let’s face it – it is rare that such an occasion magically appears and that dust collecting on those shoes and special outfits is a testament to the fact. Sometimes, it’s not about waiting for the right time and place but, instead, making it happen – finding the time for our long awaited ideas to take shape, finding an occasion to put on those beautiful clothes, and finding the place to let out that inner bombshell.

At Kissed By Light, we have created a safe space for just that kind of special creative outlet. We create sessions that help let out that inner bombshell and encourage to experiment with creative outfits. This is the place to wear those beautiful shoes to and the place to explore even the bravest, most striking outfit ideas.

Recently, we had a wonderful pleasure of working with stunning Miss L. on her very own boudoir creative photo session at our Toronto studio.  We have long worked with Miss L. in printed product creation, but this is the first time we collaborated on a photo session of her own. And the session was absolutely amazing! Miss L’s beautiful and unique looks and wonderful personality shined through, and we just can’t get over how stunning she looks!

We hope that you enjoy this selection from our session!

 

 

 

She said yes!

 

Over many years of studio’s work, we got to capture and be present ahead of some of our dear clients’ greatest, most wonderful celebrations. Milestones that truely make life special and are to be remembered for many years to come. Brides getting their bridal boudoir photos ready ahead of their big day, mothers to be getting ready to welcome their baby, families capturing a moment in time before children grow up, ladies starting a new business, and many many more. But, sometimes, we don’t just get to put together a photo session ahead of an important moment but also capture a happy occasion just as it happens right in our studio!

We had the pleasure of being present for one such event recently when we planned a boudoir session for lovely Miss S. She came to capture some boudoir photos for herself and a few portraits with her boyfriend. But she didn’t know that her boyfriend was planning a big surprise during the session and prepared a proposal! We have arranged for a signal and the right time with him to ensure everything goes smoothly and Miss S didn’t suspect… And it was a great success! We got to capture this moment just as it happened and create a formal look for the newly engaged couple to make the announcement! It was a great pleasure working with Miss S. and her fiance, and, if we may add, a great honour that we were chosen to be a part of such an important moment in their lives! We wish the lovely couple great happiness as they embark on this new journey!

And, for our readers, we have put together a few photos from the happy occasion!
