Video Session with Jolene DiVine @ Vintage Girl Studios

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

This summer I started an part time Video/Animation Program at The Rhode Island School of Design. I’ve been playing with video for a while and decided to take the next step into film making. My final this semester was to create a three minute video. I found this to be a great opportunity to work with the beautifully talented Jolene DiVine.

Postmodern Jukebox

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Last year I was hearing all this crazy talk about Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. I looked for the clip and discovered Postmodern Jukebox.
Postmodern Jukebox takes popular top-forty songs and reinvents them into jazz standards. New video are release almost every week on Youtube. Sometimes children cartoon songs are released on Saturday mornings Called “Saturday Morning Slow Jams”.
I heard that they were touring for the first time  and heading to Providence and I knew I had to work with them. For more images from their session and show check out our Facebook Page.Postmodern Jukebox by Vintage Girl Studios

Full Speed Ahead 2013

Monday, August 5th, 2013

Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of attending Full Speed Ahead 2013 on the USS Salem in Quincy, MA. The weather was perfect. I was a bit busier this year photographing some amazing women that I had met in the past few months.  These creative sessions give me  the artistic inspiration to bring in to the studio and to share with my amazing clients.

– Autorama / Boston World of Wheels’ Pin- Up Pageant

World of Wheels Pin-up Contest Bomshell Betties and Vintage Girl Studios, Pin- up Photographer  Boston/Providence

World of Wheels Pin-up Contest Bomshell Betties and Vintage Girl Studios, Pin- up Photographer Boston/Providence

Ol’ Skool Rodz Magazine, Bombshell Betties, and Vintage Girl Studios will be holding its third annual Pin-up Pageant on Saturday, March 23rd.   The pageant is a featured event during this three-day Boston World of Wheels extravaganza.

The theme of the Pin-Up Pageant is 40’s, 50’s 60’s classic pin-up style.   Contestants will be judged based on their wardrobe, make-up, hair, Q&A , and audience interaction/appeal.   1st prize is $300 and a Pin- up portrait session with Vintage Girl Studios. Cash prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. Contestants must be female and 18 + to enter.  No swimsuits or lingerie wardrobe is permitted in competition.  Admission to the pageant is free with admission to World of Wheels.  The Contest begins at 9:00 p.m. at the Seaport World Trade Center in downtown Boston, contestant check in at 8pm.
Contestant registration is closed. Due to the overwhelming response online.
During the preparation for this event VGS has had the pleasure of working closely with The Bombshell Betties. These women are truly amazing and look forward to seeing them more this year.

Bombshell Betties is a social network of lovely ladies who are enthusiasts for the nostalgia of the hotrod/car/pinup scene. They love everything from those good old days of our parents and grandparents era…. the cars, the clothes, the music even the furniture and of course most of all the Pin-Up models!
They understand that entering the hot rod or pin-up scene might be intimidating especially for a beginner, so the goal of the group is to extend a welcoming hand out to others who want to be a part. Their goal is to be supportive and encourage other women to discover their potential and inner beauty, no matter what their size, shape or color!

Bombshell Betties founder, Janice Allen, cut her teeth in the hot rod scene by way of her father’s flea market stall in Amherst N.H. helping her dad sell antique car parts to vintage car hobbyists. It was there she was bitten by the nostalgia bug and became interested in pin-up era style and dress, which eventually led to her becoming a budding photographer, doing photo shoots of hot rods and pin-up girls at local cruise nights. She was often asked by girls on the side lines watching “How could I be a pin-up?” Or “Where is a good place to buy vintage clothes?” Or ” Where can I learn how to do my hair and make-up in pin-up style? And that is how the idea of Bombshell Betties was born.

I want all my clients to know that I have recently left Providence Pin- Up and will be opening, Vintage Girl Studios, a service of Krzystyna Harber Photography.

As PPU’s co-founder, I spent countless hours developing the business and exploring concept-based, pin-up photography.   My time there was well spent!  We did some wonderful things.

Now, however, I’m so excited about moving to a new studio to start this project.  I plan to take the photography in a different direction and to offer more personal and attentive service.

UPDATE 2021:
I cannot believe that 11 years have gone by since this blog was posted.  I remembered writing it I was very nervous, scared, and had a lot of feelings. My children were so young and I had found my purpose in my art. Could this be an actual business? Will this work? I was also feeling a bit lonely in my vision with past partners. I was lucky to have the support of my husband and family through this journey. I made it a mission to have a unique studio that would empower all people through vintage glamour photography.
Over the past eleven years, we have had the pleasure of photographing hundreds of people in the studio, been to countless events, made dreams come true, created so much art, partnered with small businesses, donated our services, and made so many friends.
I truly love what I do and will not be stopping.

Last week during my move I received a phone call for a maternity session.   I was not taking appointments until the 12th, but I realized she was in her 38th week – so we made it work!

To accommodate, we did a home session where I set up the studio in her living room and outside her home.  I’m so excited to work with them again and to soon meet Baby.
