The Kagy Famliy 2014 - SchlickArt Luxury Pampering Photo Session

Sisters Kimberly and Robyn wanted to surprise their mother (Cynthia) for her 70th birthday. They wanted to enjoy a girls day out together and have a family memento to always remember their day.
On the day of the shoot the sisters did not want to tell their Mom where they were all going or what they were going to do when they got there. Needless to say, Cynthia was quite surprised when she walked in the studio and saw two hair and makeup artists and the SchlickArt photo/video team waiting for her.

We fully explained the day to her, which put her a little more at ease (especially when the pampering hair and makeup began). Once the hair and makeup was complete we sat all three women down for our video interview, which quickly turned into laughter, family stories, and fondly remembered shared experiences.

As the shoot progress the two sisters began to get more excited because they knew we had arranged one more surprise for Cynthia. We invited Dad along to show up with flowers and join in the shoot, so we could photograph the entire family together (something they hadn’t had in a very long time. It was a perfect finishing touch to the day because it meant we had created family legacy photos and a video that would be kept in the family forever.

We truly enjoyed our time with the Kagy Family and are proud to present their family memento.

Stop picking on your self you are BEAUTIFUL! 

Wise words from a professional makeup artist.

A TEDx TALK every women should watch!

Shawna and Noel visited SchlickArt Studios back in March for their Engagement Photo Session, but we couldn’t release their video until now because there was one part we couldn’t let the groom see until his wedding day… Shawna’s wedding dress! But now that their wedding day is here we can share the full video!

Their wedding was a fantastic day full of fun, laughter, tears, joy, and love. We could not be happier that their day has finally come, it was such a fantastic day!

Please enjoy Shawna and Noel’s engagement session

Congratulations to you both on a beautiful wedding day and long and happy marriage.

Happy Mothers Day - We have the perfect gift for Mom!

For us here at SchlickArt.com Mothers Day is one of the best times of the year. This is because Mothers Day brings one of our favorite shoots… The Mom and Daughter Pampering Day!

Having Moms and Daughters together in our studio just brings out all the love and happiness between them, all the great memories and all the years of friendship and bonding they hold together. 

They tell stories about each other and their family, they playfully and affectionally tease one another about each others quirky ways. And most importantly they cheer each other on, giving each other love and support; and boost each others confidence like only a Mom and Daughter can. 

This is why we created the Mother/Daughter Pampering Day especially for Mothers Day. Every Mom should have the opportunity to be pampered and feel beautiful. And every Mom should be able to spend quality time with her daughter/s and have a bonding girly day. 

This is what the Mom and Daughter “Signature SchlickArt Luxury Pampering Day” was made for. It is an amazing girls day out with champaign and chocolates, a full hair and makeover, a gift bag of goodies, 4 photo/video set of your choice and full service editing. What more could a lady ask for! ;)

Especially for Mothers Day we here at SchlickArt.com have created the perfect gift, a gift you will not regret giving! See the gift card below…

Cynthia’s Day!

We have been wanting to share all these photos with you all for so long and today is the day.

This is the Kagy Family…

Kimberly Kagy (far left in the bottom photo) and I had spoken about her coming for one of our “Signature SchlickArt Luxury Pampering Photo/Video Sessions” a couple of times. And she expressed that she really wanted to enjoy it with her Mom Cynthia; and Sister Robyn.

In December Kimberly called and told me her Mom’s 70th birthday was at the end of January and her, and her sister thought it would be an amazing gift to surprise their Mom with this special day.

We took the two sisters out for a consultation and they absolutely loved the ideas and plans we had thought of for them. Then they expressed to us that they wanted to find a way to involve their Dad also… This we had thought of too and we suggested the three girls come and enjoy their day together with the champagne, chocolates and the full hair and makeover. Then as an extra surprise have their Dad show up for the last hour of the session with flowers for their Mom and he can join in the session for family photos.

It was a hit winner! Cynthia loved her 70th birthday surprise, loved her day with her girls and loved that her wonderful husband could join in the fun also.

When we got to show this beautiful family their images it was a real gift for us too. They all look so beautiful and happy together and it was a true honor to capture these moments.

To us there is no better way to spoil a Mom than a day like this.

Happy Mothers Day everyone!!!

The Simmons Family Came Early…

So when Kathryn called us and said she wanted to come back to our studio for her maternity and newborn shoots we were over the moon. We previously photographed Kathryn this time last year when she came for a “Signature SchlickArt Luxury Pampering Day” with her sister-in-law. She was getting married and wanted a fun girls day out. Here is a photo from that session…

image

This time we planned and amazing and fun double session for Kathryn and husband Matt to come and capture a most memorable time in their lives. So we were all ready for the Maternity Session when gorgeous baby Isabeau Marie, decided she did not want to miss out on all the fun… she arrived 5 weeks early (before we could shoot the maternity session)!!!

These things always happen with best laid plans lol.

So a few days after Isabeau’s birth we decided to call Kathryn and Matt to see how they were doing. We told them about an open session date we had and asked them if they would like to turn their Maternity/Newborn sessions into a 2-in-1 Family/Newborn session. We knew Kathryn’s parents were in town visiting, so it was a perfect plan. They took the opportunity and as you can see from the images the whole day tuned out perfectly.

It’s funny how life happens sometimes!

Welcome to the world Isabeau Marie Simmons! xxx

FABULOUS FACES OVER 50 - By Denise Van Arsdale-West

image

As a makeup artist working in the film, television, photography and beauty industries, my job was to make the celebrities, actors, musicians and actors look their best.

After turning 50, I began to realize the challenges I had while doing my makeup. My skin was drier as well as noticing the fine lines and wrinkles that began to appear. With my experience, I knew how to correct the imperfections, use the right tools as well as the right products. A short time ago, it dawned on me that I continuously hear other women complaining and struggling with applying their makeup. Some give up and don’t even want to wear it! Because I love teaching, I decided to give birth to FABULOUS FACES OVER 50.

Not only do I want to teach women how to do their makeup properly, I am passionately committed to helping women feel empowered by deeply loving themselves while appreciating their own beauty.

MAKEUP TIPS FOR WOMEN OVER 50

The first rule is to make sure you keep your skin in good condition by using a moisturizer, an eye cream and exfoliated.

A primer helps keep eye shadow and foundation looking flawless all day.

Highlighter and Illuminators take off a few years from your face. Use them on the cheekbones or under your brow.

Keep your brows groomed. Have them professionally waxed or threaded.

Curl your lashes to open up your eyes. Use a good mascara.

Add a pop of color to your cheeks with blush, preferably a cream right on the apple of your cheek. Blend well.

Under eye concealer is always a must using a corrector in pink or peach tones to cover dark circles.

Try eye pencils for liner instead of liquid. Use along the base of the lid and blend with a comparable eye shadow color.

Lipstick shades should be kept in the medium tones using rosy reds, pinks or neutral tones.

SchlickArt is the best photography and video studio in Santa Clarita!

This past Saturday Brian and I attended the 4th Annual Empowering HeARTS Gala and Fundraiser at the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center at College of the Canyons. 

The Gala honors 10 women who have gone above and beyond, helped others in their community and excelled in their own ways, often against adversity. To help honor these amazing women, each one of them is paired with an artist who creates a piece of artwork inspired by who the honorees are and what they do. For the second year in a row I have been one of the artists and this year I was paired with Leslie Carr, Director of Professional Development at College of the Canyons. 

The art I created was inspired by all the wonderful work Leslie has done for College of the Canyons over the past 26 years and I wanted to pay homage to Leslie with a canvas for her to cherish forever. (See a digital copy of the canvas above.) 

The Empowering HeARTs Gala exists to bring awareness and to help raise money for the Single Mothers Outreach Foundation, which provides emergency stabilization for families who are in real danger of losing everything. SMO provides families with donated food, emergency housing placement, donated clothing, free back-packs filled with school supplies and critical service resources for mothers struggling with basic living skills or mental illness. 

This is such an amazing charity that we are so proud to be a part of and we had so much fun at the Gala catching up with old friends and new; and creating a great piece of artwork for Leslie. The Gala was a huge success. Thank you to DaAnne Smith (Director of Single Mothers Outreach) for allowing us to be a part of such a special occasion and we cannot wait to do it again next year!

The 10 women who were honored were:

Leslie Carr - Director of Professional Development at College of the Canyons 

Margo Hudson - Founder of The Closet on Main

Heather Stewart - Academy program coordinator at Princess Cruises.

Jenny Ketchepaw - Vice president and corporate trainer of Community Bank

Michele Emerick Buttelman - Journalist 

Anna Frutos-Sanchez - Public affairs region manager for Southern California Edison

Stacie Locke - Executive assistant to the CEO of Help Worldwide Inc

Marsha McLean - Santa Clarita City Councilwoman 

Gloria Mercado-Fortine - Board member in the William S. Hart Union High School District

Rachel Rodriguez - Psychology graduate from California State University, Northridge
