Please help. I need suggestions for painting my staircase.

last year

We are refinishing our floors and painting out house. We are painting walls and trim white dove and staining the floors medium brown.
I originally wanted to stain the banister to match, but because of budget reasons I have decided to paint.
Now I'm trying to decide on color either black or dark brown and finish super high gloss (hollandic brilliant) or satin.
I also don't know what to do about the posts (spindles? I don't know the proper name) that are currently stained and extend below the floor. Do I paint them white or the same color as the handrail? Does that change depending on the finish I choose?
Any help, photos , suggestions welcome. Thank you in advance
P.S. I'm trying to figure out how to post a picture. I will when I figure it out.
