Welcome to the Studio: A Place to Feel beautiful


Vogue has named Toronto's "West Queen West" the second-hippest district in the world and for good reason. Surrounded by exciting boutiques, galleries, and restaurants, our studio shares the urban vibe of Queen Street West. Come on upstairs to our Second Floor space for a totally unique beauty & photography experience.

The Consultation

The key to what we do at Lit Beauty & Photo is collaboration. Before we start any beauty and photography, we want to hear all the details. Why do you need these portraits? Where will they be featured? What is the feeling you’d like to capture? How would you like to look? We’ll share inspo ideas, help you pick out the best styling options, and make sure you feel confident about your photos before you even sit down in the makeup chair.

The Beauty

Once we’ve confirmed how you’d like your make-up and hair to look for your portraits, you’ll head over to the beauty space, where Holly will glam you up. In keeping with her cruelty-free approach to skin care & beauty, Holly only uses Jane Iredale products. Our studio is also the exclusive supplier of these products in the Queen Street West neighborhood.

The Portraits

And now it’s time for the photos! Camilla, a practiced lens-dodger, completely understands any hesitations you might have about having your photo taken (and admires anyone who loves it). It takes an empathetic and an objective eye to capture you at your very best. We spend some time playing: with lighting, with backdrops, with whatever we have at hand, to capture you at your very best: relaxed, confident & beautiful. When the portraits are done, and the files have been reviewed, we work together to create the perfect final images.
