We are often asked why we use MakeUp Artists, and how they can really benefit a session, especially for our seniors. There are many reasons why we choose to work with a MakeUp Artist. We want to make you feel like a Kishel glamour model! Using one of our skilled artists adds a special element that you don’t get every day. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a little pampering?
Most importantly, they also help you look your best! Even though we’re sure you do an excellent job with your makeup on an everyday basis, when it comes to photo shoots, you have to apply your makeup a little differently to make your best features really pop on film. You may not put on enough makeup normally to please the camera, but may put it on too heavy when trying to get it right for your session.
We choose to hire a professional so you don’t have to worry about it! Part of the Kishel experience is to allow you to be as stress-free as possbile. We want you to just sit back and let them work their magic. They’ve done this a million times before and know what looks best on camera. Cameras are very technologically advanced and pick up everything. Even things that may not be noticeable to the naked eye. Our skilled MakeUp Artists know what to look for, what to enhance, and what to cover.
MakeUp Artists also know which shimmery shadows will photograph weird and what colors to avoid for photos. Some things that look good in person tend to look strange on camera. They know what eyeliner to use to make your eyes pop instead of hiding them in shadows, and they’ve got the 4-1-1 on photography makeup. I prefer to leave this matter in the hands of the professionals. This service can definitely be added to any session for a reasonable fee!
We loved Sarah’s style for her senior portraits. We had trouble picking just one image as our favorite, but this one is at the top!
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!
