Vintage Girl Studios ReVamped: Marilyn’s last photo shoot starring Niki Luparelli.

Friday, June 29th, 2012

This week we had the pleasure of working with Niki Luparelli . This ReVamped session was inspired by Marilyn Monroe very last photo shoot(The Lost Nudes) by Lawrence Schiller the day before she passed. We have been seeing  many images of Marilyn lately because we are a few weeks from the  50th anniversary of her tragic death.

To see more of these images they will exclusively will be published to The Niki Luparelli and the Gold Digger’s FB page.

Niki Luparelli and the Gold Digger’s will be performing at The Dorrance in Providence, RI on Saturday night.

ReVamped Little Queenie at Horseneck Beach and Sayles Mill Photo Collabrative

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

This week Revamped session was with the amazing model Queenie at Horseneck Beach Westport, Ma.

This session was inspired by photographer and model Bunny Yeager.

Born in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, U.S. Yeager became one of the most photographed models in Miami. After retiring from modeling, she began her career behind the camera. She met Bettie Page in 1954, and took most of the photographs of her that year.[1] Along with photographer Irving Klaw, Yeager played a role in helping to make Page famous, particularly with her photos in Playboy magazine.[1] Yeager is also credited with discovering the model Lisa Winters.[citation needed] Following Page’s retirement, Yeager remained a successful photographer. She took the well-known still images of Ursula Andress on the beach in the 1962 James Bond film Dr. No, and discovered many other notable models.[1] In 1968 she played the role of a Swedish masseuse opposite Frank Sinatra in Lady In Cement.[1]


When I first started to really photograph Pin- up a few years ago in my searches I had come across Bunny Yeager’s website.

At the time was was still working. I had ordered a many of her books and they all came signed. How amazing and what an inspiration. I still have her business card in a place or honor in my studio.

Rita Hayworth ReVamped

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

This week’s Vintage Girl Studios ReVamped session is Rita Hayworth.

Rita Hayworth (born Margarita Carmen Cansino; October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987) was an American dancer and film actress who garnered fame during the 1940s as one of the era’s top stars. Appearing first as Rita Cansino, she agreed to change her name to Rita Hayworth and her hair color to dark red to attract a greater range in roles. Her appeal led to her being featured on the cover of Life magazine five times, beginning in 1940

Where have I been!

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

I know  have not been blogging on this site but that is about to change. Vintage Girl Studios has been such a  success that it has almost taken over my studio. So much so that I have limited the weddings I do per year.  Now that the new studio has been completed and VGS is moving in the direction I hoped for, some real thought and attention will be going into updating this site.  This will be starting weekly. I have started a New Facebook Page  for KHP where I will be adding images weekly.  I have added a 2010 and 2011 to the wedding gallery on this site. Keep posted for more images here!!

As most of you probably know, I’ve been working on my new project,  Vintage Girl Studios.

My latest session was filmed at The Lippitt House Museum with, Kristen Minsky, a talented cabaret performer/artist who currently resides here in Providence.  She is also the producer of Chifferobe, a vintage cabaret night.

The movie of this session was filmed by Michelle McNamara of  Fresh Focus Productions and the Music is performed by Janet Klein.  We had so much fun and I think it really comes through in the work.  I hope that you enjoy these shots!

Vintage Girl Studios and House Calls

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010


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.

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.
