We worked with Katie to find the perfect setting for the look she wanted. We were so excited when she showed us the dress she wanted to wear for her senior pictures. It was perfect against the backdrop of the flowers.
Hannah wanted something different for her senior pictures so she chose a nighttime session downtown . We designed a photo shoot with her unique personality in mind and this is one of our favorite images from the session! The lights, color, and beauty swept us away! We had so much fun designing her senior session!
We fell in love with this senior’s night shoot pictures! We love when our seniors want to do something outside the box. Our nighttime photoshoots are a fun way to do just that! This is our favorite image from Sophia’s session.
Every year we try something new, creative, outside of the box- and this year we are having a blast lighting with color! We always have our Kishel models do something unique and this year it’s intense color studio shoots! Here are some of our favorites!
This senior wanted to showcase her love for showing her dairy cows! What better way than a milk bath!! It was so much fun to get creative with Micah and her sweet cows. She also wanted to showcase another style completely. She came to the studio for another shoot with dramatic lighting. It was tough choosing our favorite pictures from her senior session but here’s a few!
We’ve been lucky enough these past few years to have one of our Kishel Seniors get crowned the Delaware County Fair Queen! This year, Abbi was crowned and we had a blast taking her fair queen pictures! We braved the heat, and the carnival! We love how the pictures turned out!

At our studio we have
one main rule: Always make sure the focal point is at eye level. If you think
of it, museums and art galleries use this rule of thumb. Keep it eye level for
optimal viewing (You don’t want people straining to see it).
Of course adjust accordingly when furniture is involved. If you’re hanging above a sofa, over stairs, or in a hallway, consider all of the elements but make it comfortable to view.
But keep in mind; If
your picture is smaller than a 20X24, it’s too small to be seen above the couch
or mantle by itself (we’ll blog about the size factor more on another day 😉
When you’re working with a collection, the center of the focal picture should be approx. 60-65 inches from the floor (generally eye level or slightly above).
When you have a
grouping, think of it as one large picture and consider where the bottom and top
images should be placed to see everything well. The central picture should be
If you’re still too nervous to put those holes in your walls, test out various heights with pieces of paper first…..and if you’re still not sure, call us! We gladly hang our clients’ beautiful portraits for them!
