Striking beauty

 

 

Due to the nature of our profession, Kissed By Light team is always looking to stay on top of all the recent trends in beauty. Be it makeup, hair styling, photography techniques, or special set ups, we work hard to stay informed and expand our skills! But when it comes to our favorite boudoir sessions, classic and timeless are our absolute favorite genres, for, as we know, trends pass, but elegance always remains in style. Our makeup artists have developed special techniques that ephasize beauty without being over the top, while our photography team has been developing poses, set ups, and style combinations that look elegant with different body types and complexions. All of our work is centred on the idea that boudoir photos should remain beautiful beyond time, a pleasure to preserve and share even after many years go by. Afterall, we only do so many boudoir sessions in a lifetime, so we think that this investment and unique experience needs to be designed with that importance in mind.

When we recently had the pleasure of working with gorgeous Miss N, we wanted to capture her beauty and style in the best way possible. Our makeup artist worked with her to create a striking, beautiful look, one that highlights her amazing features and adds a touch of elegant drama to her overall style. They went for a dramatic cat eye complimented by natural lips and brows, along with lovely tousled curls. For her outfits, Miss N. brought some striking lingerie which we complimented with our favorite set ups. We went from light and airy nude looks to the more dramatic, moody ones set with our darker background. This lovely change of styles gave this session some beautiful variety, yet remained elegant throughout.

We hope that you enjoy this striking photo series!

Blossoming beginnings

 

In a creative profession such as ours, inspiration is often the driving force, one that makes our world go round and magic happen! It is what, combined with hard work and perseverance, creates breakthroughs and helps us capture our best photos yet! While there are plenty of inspirational sources out there, there is one that never ceases to amaze us – our dear muses! Every one of our lovely ladies has a spark that shines in the photos and inspires us to create new, unique work. We truly believe that we owe our studio’s success to our lovely clients, who not only support us but drive us to create new things, push boundaries, and explore different styles during each session. Over the years, we have created a preparation process that helps us pinpoint our muse’s vision and unveil it within our photos. We go over things like their preferred looks, inspirational photos, previous photo sessions (so we don’t repeat ideas), and overall style. Whether we are capturing boudoir, maternity, personal branding, or family photo session, opportunities for creative output and collaboration are endless, which is why no two sessions are ever the same!

Recently, we were thrilled to hold a second session for our wonderful muse Miss M! Initially, she has done a boudoir session at our studio (see it here – boudoir), and it was now time to create a maternity one! It was amazing to work with Miss M, and she has, yet again, inspired us to push boundaries and create something unique! As she was a dancer in the past, we wanted to embrace this side of her life and capture a lot of motion in her photos. Light textures, morning light, and some lovely blossoms made for perfect set ups, while Miss M’s elegant, dance like movements highlighted her beautiful physique, creating some truly captivating maternity photos! This session turned out incredibly beautiful, and we are very excited to share it with you!

 

Morning coffee

 

 

Whether you are a morning person or not, whether you need that coffee or three to start the day, we can all agree that beginning of the day is one of the most personal and intimate times of day. It is the time that we usually only share with those that are the closest to us or, sometimes, keep it entirely to ourselves. It sheds light on a new day and strips away all the unnecessary things of yesterday. There is quite nothing like a slow morning with loved ones, your special someone, or by yourself, and it is this feeling that we often like to recreate in our signature natural light sessions. Attaining authentic feelings and beauty is one of our key goals when approaching boudoir and fine art nude photography. It is this down to earth, simple, yet elegant style that creates some of the warmest and stunning captures and inspires us to experiment with the morning light. Sheer textures, white colors, clean lines, and simple set ups, everything goes into creating photos that reflect that morning warmth.

And we were very excited to expand on this theme with our lovely muse Miss K. Her session encompassed a great variety of styles, from seductress (see our previous blogpost for this part one of the series) to effortless morning beauty. We created our signature “in his shirt” look and an elegant nude, against some of our studio’s favorite set ups: a bed with simple white sheets and grey professional background.  Together, we think that we succeeded in capturing that feeling of a beautiful, intimate morning. And we think Miss K looks incredible in this style!

We are very excited to show you this photo series and hope that you enjoy!

 

Reminiscing her day

 

 

There are a certain few events in our lives that mark the most important and magical milestones. They may be different to us all, be it a wedding, first children, first business, turning a certain age, finding self-love, or achieving important goals, but they all deserve to be remembered, celebrated, and preserved. And it is with celebration in mind, that we like to approach them at our studio, from bridal boudoir and maternity photos to business portraits, every occasion is captured to mark the important date. A kind of celebration where you are made the star, the “main character”, and your creative vision is followed and executed. Where you get to sit in the director’s chair, have your makeup done, hair curled into your favorite style, and looks styled by our team. It is where we encourage creativity and allow imagination run wild. In short, it is where we always hope to create an environment of celebration and beauty. And, together, we capture some lovely photos, ones you may feel proud to display, share with your loved ones, and keep for years to come.

Recently, we had a wonderful pleasure of creating some lovely photos for Miss C. She was looking to recapture the magic of her wedding in a series of celebratory photos with her dress. We greatly enjoyed creating this new take, recreating her wedding look in a relaxed and specially designed environent, where we could truly concentrate on her look and capture photos worthy of it. And creating these beautiful set ups was a lot of fun on its own! This is where we could get creative, play with textures, and create an environment where her wedding dress truly shines. We think that the goal was beautifully achieved, if we may say so ourselves, and we are very excited to show you the results!

Simple elegance

 

 

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” — Leonardo da Vinci

 

We are, without a doubt, big fans of letting creativity run wild… After all, what else is it for?! And it is on our sessions that we find creative outlets abound: from textures, flowers, outfits, and backgrounds to final lipstick colors, every detail counts in putting together that perfect photo. But it is also with this creative abundance that comes the great “responsibility”… Not to say that we are superheroes, but attaining effortless elegance does come with practice! We make sure to collaborate closely with our subjects to ensure that our sessions show only the essence, stripping away anything unnecessary, and leaving simple elegance at their core. It is especially important when capturing such moments as pregnancy. Photos that are created to be preserved in the family need to be timeless, with a style that ages well over time.

This was one of our key objectives when we got to put together a session for lovely Miss A. We strived to capture photos that are beautifully varied yet remain effortlessly elegant. Classic set ups, natural light, and flowing textures all came together wonderfully in this amazing photo series. Miss A shines in ever photo and we think that the session was a great success! Now, we are excited to show you the results and hope that you enjoy them!
