Clara and the Mouse King

When it comes to photography, it’s fair to say that creative opportunities are truly limitless. But perhaps what makes them really special are the collaborations involved – the effort and love that people of many different talents put together to create something outstanding.

Last year, our founder and creative director, Lora Vertue, has put together a team of talented people, creating a collaboration that became personal to each one of them. Inspired by classic portraiture techniques and the Nutcracker tale, this editorial was named “Clara and the mouse king”. Over course of a year, everyone involved has put their own touch to this project, creating something that we are now very proud to present to you! Her beautiful daughter Sasha became the muse of this editorial, posing with her two favorite little pets. Her delicate vintage dresses and incredible jewelry were put together from the collection of Anat Kaplan, the founder and owner of Anouk Jewelry (anoukjewelry.com). While our talented makeup artist, Angelina Walewska (instagram.com/wmakeuptoronto), did Sasha’s make up using the finest techniques to attain a natural, yet polished look. After the photo session, the work has only just begun as Kissed By Light studio’s very own editor Alisa, began to apply captivating effects and elegant floral motives to the photographs, inspired by the Renaissance paintings.

This photo session is very close to the hearts of everyone involved and will certainly stay in our memories. The beautiful model Sasha will grow up, and the whole team will go on to create many projects of their own in the future. But these photographs will remain as a reminder of what hard work, dedication, and collaboration of talents may bring to life! We hope you enjoy this editorial just as much as this team enjoyed bringing it to life.
