Hello and welcome to KKISS STUDIOS, a photography studio located just opposite the Bella Vista Hotel. I am Stecey Poson the owner and a photographer here at KKISS STUDIOS. The most unique thing about me is that I am not just a photographer in this photo studio, but also a qualified hair stylist and makeup artist, as well as a better health and weight loss coach. Therefore, I can really help you in many area of your requirement.
Loved photography since a young age, as I always see so many beautiful things through my lens, especially people. When I had my first child, I just wanted to capture every moment and didn’t want to miss a thing. That is when I started to get serious about my photography and wanted to know more, learning and practicing my craft to improve myself and produce stronger images. I then enrolled in a photography course, and from there, my passion grew even stronger. When I began taking people images, the people loved everything that I did with them, often showing tears in their eyes while reviewing the photos taken. It made me feel great and created a hunger to take more photos. A few people told me that I took stunning images and I should enter my images into competitions. I remembered saying to them that “I won’t win anything!”. I told my husband who has always been very supportive, and he said to me, “If you don’t try, you don’t know”. I took the advice and won a few awards both in the wedding and portrait categories. I couldn’t believe that I had done it! This increased my confidence and proved that I could take this to the next level. I then decided to become a professional photographer and started photographing many weddings and family portrait sessions.
One day, I said to myself, I’ve always loved fashion, how could I try to incorporate that into my work. I started to work with hair and makeup artists and do some glamour shots. I loved those images and could feel the thrill people experience when they see themselves transform. They cannot believe that they can look that good and like a model in a magazine. I felt amazed by it, and yet felt something was missing. I worked out, it was the communication between me and the hair and makeup artist, and that I couldn’t translate my ideas into words to get what I wanted, so I got myself qualified as a hair and makeup artist! I now understand both worlds and can achieve what I really want in the image. By doing so, the world has opened up wider for me. Since then I do hair and makeup not only for my photography work but also in the industry e.g. film, runway and agency work. Attending so many film shoots, I started to get interested in video. Since I had all the equipment, I gave it a try and it worked out beautifully.
When I met with the Mad Max film crew, they gave me some tips and tricks, and I then started to do some short videos and even created some short films. My passion grew and grew in all areas of photography, being a photographer, a hair and makeup artist as well as a videographer. I’ve amazed myself - I can really do it all and to a high standard! I can help people in business e.g. creating their professional headshot, even with hair and makeup to look more professional in their selected image, cover corporate events, product photography for website and social media, produce videos. I can also help my private clients with family portraits, Newborn, glamour portraits, hair and makeup for any occasion and much more.
However, one day I realised, I cannot stop there, I wanted to achieve more. After photographing people for so many years, many customers has asked me to slim them down in the photos, or take out certain wrinkles or unwanted blemishes or smoothen up skin tone etc. When I delivered the photos, a lot of time I hear the jokingly comment from my clients saying ' It will be good if I can stay looking like this in real life everyday'. I literally had no answer to that until one day I discovered the program that works like magic. Here's the good news, I now do have the solution to those who wanting to stay looking like the photos everyday. I then set up Inspire the NEW ME program which I have help many people gained better health and achieved desired weight loss successfully and the most important thing is teaching them to keep it off long term. Now, to finish the look, I added another makeup and skincare lesson. THE TOTAL IMAGE was born.
Why the name KKISS STUDIOS? A lot of people have asked me, “Why KKISS STUDIOS?”. Yes, I spell my kiss with the double “K” and studio with the “S” at the end. If you have noticed my name “STECEY”, I spell it with an “E” not an “A” because I like to be unique. Therefore, a lot of things that I do in my studio could be very different to others. Kiss with the double K came from my dearest hubby who gave me a name of “Kiss Photography”. He said to me one day when I was about to open up a brand new studio, “You are so passionate with what you do and you love it so much, why don’t you give it a kiss, let’s call it Kiss Photography where everyone could feel your love and passion”. Immediately, I thought, he is right but then just a kiss is not enough in my opinion! This is my true love and passion, and I wanted to give it more kisses! However, it would probably sound strange to have so many kisses as a studio name! I somehow still want it to be unique so I did the double “K” and with the red lips behind it makes it look really sexy. I hope you love it too.
