Bright beginnings

 

 

If there is one thing that we, as a photography team, love to capture the most, it would be love itself! It may sound like a broad topic (and an elusive one at that) to attempt to capture, but we insist it really is at the heart of our greatest inspirations! Be it self love, romantic love, mother’s love, family love, or love for one’s purpose and creativity, these are the sparks that make a capture truly magical. No photo is just a mere moment frozen in time – there is always a story, depth, and, if you look from the right angle, love to it. And, sometimes, we get the honour to see these stories develop and unfurl further as time progresses. We get to be there for stories of women who came to our studio for some boudoir photos and a confidence boost and have continued to come back as their lives progressed and evolved. The transformations that we see are sometimes nothing short of incredible – women of all ages becoming wives, mothers, businesswomen, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and artists. Who doesn’t adore these real life love and transformation stories?! We certainly do and aim to do them justice in capturing their magic in our photos.

We got one such opportunity when we had wonderful Miss M come to our studio to capture her maternity photos. She originally visited us to have some elegant photos done ahead of her wedding and it was wonderful to see her again and, this time, photograph the beginning of a new, wonderful chapter in her life! With her husband joining the session for several looks, this pregnancy photo series captured the magic of the new family’s love. Miss M had some great looks prepared for this session that were simple and effortlessly elegant, lending photos their intimate and natural atmosphere. While a combination of both airy and bold set ups, gave this session some beautiful diversity.

We are very excited to share a peak into Miss M’s amazing maternity series!

Pre-wedding magic

 

 

There is no doubt – days leading up to that important “I do” can be quite hectic! And it’s no wonder! Afterall, the bride to be suddenly has to navigate the world of wedding planning that has blown up over the years. All the tasting cakes, flowers, fittings, and relatives can make one’s head spin! Which is why, taking time to nurture yourself and the romance that, in the end, the whole thing is all about is crucial. Taking a pause and seeing the magic behind the relationship, feeling the excitement that comes with the momentous occasion, and finding ways to treat your special someone can be all the bride to be needs at this stage. And it is with this thought in mind that we like to approach our bridal boudoir photo sessions! For one, they are designed to be versatile – it is a day of pampering, a wonderful confidence boost, and also a special gift for the groom on the wedding day (that makes the days leading up to the wedding all the more fun – just imagining the look on his face when he sees the photos is priceless). This photo session also becomes a day that the bride to be can have all to herself! Afterall, given that it is often a secret, and there need not be any friends or relatives to share their opinions and give suggestions, it can be just you, your ideas and creativity!

Recently, we got to create one such exciting session for a lovely bride to be Miss C! This gorgeous lady had some very romantic looks in mind for her photo session and, together, we designed a session that is delightfully beautiful! Lace, tulle, flowers, crystal chandellier – everything has set the scene for an almost magical boudoir series. Miss C’s beautiful looks reflected classic bridal beauty while a few of our accessorie and a veil completed the set wonderfully!

We are very excited to share a peak into Miss C’s beautiful photo series with you!

Lovely mother to be

 

There is something quite magical about photography… As it has developed and advanced over the years, it took on new meanings and opened new horizons for all. Be it communication, art, self realization, or preservation of a moment, there are many ways a photo can enhance our lives. And, with time, these photos become timecapsules of sort, evoking every memory, feeling, and sensation attached to the moment they were taken in. Which we certainly think is quite incredible, making our jobs all the more meaningful to us! We truly believe that life’s greatest milestones deserve to be captured in order to be preserved for years and generations to come. Be it maternity or family photos to comemmorate your family’s important memories or boudoir photos to celebrate your body and accomplishements today, life is filled with these precious moments that are certainly worthy of remembering.

One such important special occasion, without a doubt, is pregnancy. We hear it from many mothers that these incerdible 9 months fly by all too fast, leaving them reminiscing those days long after. Which is why having memories of this special period preserved in time is really the best gift a mother can give to her future self. We absolutely love holding these sessions and are always honored to be chosen to capture this one of a kind memory!

We recently had a great pleasure of working with lovely Miss J. on her very own maternity photo session. Incredibly sweet and beautiful, she came to capture some elegant photos and we were very excited to customize a session to her personality and taste. The end results proved quite lovely and Miss J. shined in every photo! We were incredibly thankful that she chose us to celebrate this moment. Later she wrote us the most lovely message:

“Thank you so much, oh my God I had such an AMAZING TIME with the team. I cannot tell you how special the experience was, and how beautiful the girls made me feel. The photos are out of this world and so dreamy, I can’t believe they are of me! I am beyond grateful for the experience I had, one of my top things I’ve ever done for myself & its very special commemorating my time of pregnancy. Thank you thank you thank you! Please pass along my gratitude to the team. ”

It absolutely made our day! And we are very excited to be sharing a little peak into her session with you!

Confidence blooming

 

 

As we start to see the first buddings of spring here in Toronto (with all too occasional snow storms, but that’s Canada for you…), we often see a united sense of renewal and uplifted spirits among our fellow Torontonians. It feels like the perfect time to shed worries of the winter past and look towards the new beginnings! To our team at Kissed By Light, it often means generating some new ideas and inspirations, but also being there for new beginnings of our dear clients. In business and personal life alike, it is the time many look to refresh their social media/work profiles and put their best foot forward with some brand new photos. This is, of course, where our team comes in! We work to find our Muse’s vision for the session and bring it to life in the best way possible through creativity, experimentation, and skilled eye for beauty. Our team strives to make every photo shoot an experience to remember, capturing photos that reflect that special spark from within!

Recently, we had a great pleasure working with lovely Miss M. She came to our studio to get some nice new portraits, to boost her confidence and celebrate her journey. We worked together to create a series of bright and captivating photos, with different looks and lighting for variety. Miss M. and her beautiful smile shined in every photo and we just had to share a little peak into her wonderful photo session!
