The face of innocence can be captured with TA Schmidt Photography

Those chubby little cheeks will soon be outgrown. Do you have a portrait of your child at each stage of their growth?

Did you miss it?
That special look your child had when growing up.
The twinkle in the eye, the pouchy pout, the hardy laugh when they could hardly stand.
How can you not love a face like that?
Can you see the traits of Mommy or Daddy?
How did the gene pool mix and match to create this wonderful blending of two long lines of your ancestors.
How are each of your kids different in their looks?
Can you see the shape of the face and eyes, the roundness of the lips and how cute that nose is as a child?
Hold each of these 7 stages of childhood dear.
They come and they go so fast with no regards as to how busy you are today.
A blink and they are gone, disappearing into the haze of modern day’s too hectic life.
 
Each of those ages moves on quickly.
A heartbeat later and you have missed your opportunity forever.
They have grow a bit, changed a lot, and in far too short of time left home for their own life and adventures.
 
Photo sessions for kids 12 years and under are still only $29 for the studio two outfit memory saver.
 
Bring props to show their passions and interests. Bring the favorite pet and buddies to tell a visual story about this time in their life.
 
Right now you even get entry into the Adorable Kids Contest which gives you and the contest a print from your very favorite photo.
 
Call 244-2636 to save a spot and capture a moment in time.
 
Children, family, high school senior, glamour/boudoir, pets and business portraits for family and friends.
 
Do you have a TA Schmidt portrait in your home yet?

Beautiful faces get captured each year with the Adorable Kids Contest in Redding CA

I remember what your Grandma did!
When you have been around doing portraits for four decades you get to say that now and then to the grand children we photograph years later.
All those weddings and high school seniors back in the beginning grew a massive business that continues today.
 
We have moved three times to larger and larger facilities.
We were the first to brave the transition from film to digital.
We were the first to earn the PPA Master of Photography Degree.
 
Through it all we still do what we do.
Make images to freeze time.
 
Your kids like it or not will grow up and move on also.
Like I tell all my clients… “you keep feeding them they keep growing!”
 
It’s one of the reasons we keep doing the Adorable Kids Contest. It lights a fire with some folks to get those good portraits of their kids while they can. I not so subtle reminder they won’t be at this age much longer.
 
All kids, boys and girls, 12 years and younger are eligible for the annual event. For just $29 you get a two outfit studio photoshoot, tons of fun photos to choose from and a print for you and the contest.
 
For a VERY limited time we are also giving away a FREE pearl necklace with our Girls and Pearls promo. Just $129 for the photoshoot, 8×10, 5×7, 8-wallets and a lovely strand of real freshwater pearls. This is limited to inventory on hand so call for either kids special at 244-2636.
With Kool April Nights just around the corner you might also want Pin Up photos with your classic car! Glamour and boudoir photoshoots available with
All Pinned Up doing full hair and face Makeovers for you.

What is more sweet than the face of a young child?

All those sweet little faces.
Tens of thousands of them over the 41+ years of photographing Redding’s children, high school seniors and families.
We have had the privilege of watching so many kids grow up, graduate from school, become doctors, engineers, housewives and artists. They would get married and have kids to start the cycle yet again.
Innocent kids with the future ahead of them.
What will they do when they get older?
Write a book?
Get into politics?
Discover some great new galaxy or medicine?
How will YOU remember this age?
Now is the time for portraits of your young ones.
The Adorable Kids Contest gets you two outfit sessions including a print for you and the contest for only $29.
One set of clothing should be something nice, your usual thought for a studio photo.
The other set of clothing will be theme related.
What story can you tell about the child or the family?
Can you share a hobby, passion or interest of the child?
Are their things maybe passed down through the generations that will be meaningful in a photographs?
Maybe a hand carved rocking horse or clothing from the Old World.
Is there a pet that travels well or artwork the child has created?
Does the child play a musical instrument or love to build things with Legos or some other blocks?
Those little details that are so hard to remember but so important for the family.
Will you miss this awesome age on your kids?

Call 244-2636 for your photoshoot time and date.

Do you have a TA Schmidt portrait in your home yet?
We would love to help with your kids, family, high school senior, business or modeling headshots.
Call to talk about your ideas and get on the schedule.

No matter how fine you ride is during Kool April Nights you can roll with the big boys.

There are two sure indicators that it is Spring in Redding.
First is the nasty North wind that brings with it the allergy season and half the town with the sniffles. We know we have nearly a month of this wind whipping through town and blowing up the hay fever symptoms. 
Second is all the sweet rides being tuned up and and polished out for the annual Kool April Nights week of car fun. You see them everywhere with the tops down and mufflers spouting that oily exhaust from sitting around idle all winter. 

Kids & Kool April Nights

For the Adorable Kids Contest you can bring your child’s favorite muscle car or bike for the theme set part of the two outfit photoshoot.
Still only $30 for the complete studio session and two prints… one for you and one for the contest.
This program is great for girls and boys ages 12 and under.
Plus you can even bring the child’s pet that travels well for the session.

But wait there is more…

Ladies… this time of year we are doing Pin Up poses to tie into the owners car’s decade of style.
Do you love the 40’s or 50’s? Is your muscle car from the 60’s or 70’s? Or a customized 80’s or 90’s thing of beauty?
Maybe your ’55 Chevy need a classic Pin Up girl with hair and makeup done to match the colors and mood?
Bring in you gal for the complete model experience!
Your MakeOver and photoshoot is only $99 with the All Pinned Up Salon getting you the perfect look and color to slay them at the annual Kool April Nights big dance.
