Crazy Cool Critters with Redding Pet Photos

Studio photography in Redding CA

Pet portraits with Redding photographer TA Schmidt come kin many sizes and shapes.

P1240383 P1240400Every year with our annual Haven Humane fundraising sessions we get at least one cool pet.

Maybe an exotic dog or mutt with character.

Sometimes a rescued racoon or brightly colored parrot.

This year we had a really “cool cat”.

That is the best part of this business.

You never know what your next session will be until they walk through the front door.

It could be a Christmas family, another high school senior or a new addition to the clan.

Portraits are the best way to bridge generations.

A simple way to tell your family story that can be passed down the line with no worry about what kind of electronic media will be needed to view.

Something to hold in your hands.

Something to share.

To wrap as a gift.

To give with love.

Another fun week of studio sessions/Redding Photographer

We finished of some GREAT boudoir sessions for Valentines Day that I wish I could share with all. However they were special for husbands so you will have to take my word for it….

Some of the best propped kids yet for the Adorable Kids Contest came in this week. We are working very well together getting the STORY of the child to show in each of the photos. Pets, toys, musical instruments. All of it leads to a special image that is so much more than a dorky stare at the camera smile.

Also shot a ton of video this week. A sweet commercial for Adamson's Peak Performance and some work for our new Spring Home and Garden Show booth coming next month.

Lots of new clients showing up like Cris who is in the finals for his company competition. Wanna know how he dropped a quick 22 pounds? Check out his website… www.criskapple.automaticbody.com.

Good luck in the finals!


What are little boys made of…

Sure, the girls are sugar and spice and get photographed a lot because Mom and Grandma like to dress them up like little dolls.

But the boys have just as big of personalities and deserve to be captured in portraits to show off their interests and age.

We see every year with the Adorable Kids Contest that the boys don't get nearly the attention. This year we are working hard to change that issue. Girls and Boys ages newborn -12 years old can get a two outfit studio session with a print for Mom and for the contest for only $25. Pets and props are more than welcome to make this the best photo of your child's life.

Plus you never know… over $7,000 in national prizes will be awarded again this year.  Call us at 244-2636 to save a spot for you kids or grand children.

Adorable Kids Contest is Back!

After the hustle and chaos of the Holiday season it nice to settle down into the comfortable routines we have used for staying in business for 36 plus years. 

Year after year the first 4 months are the annual Adorable Kids Contest which gives parents a chance to update photos of the kids without suffering the disappointment of the usual school picture days.

You can bring up to two outfits and we HIGHLY suggest some kind of props/pets/hobbies/friends to help tell the story about your child at this point in their lives.

Your photo shoot and a free contest print are still only $25 dollars for kids newborn through 12 years on the day of the session. Now is the perfect time to get photos in all the new clothing Santa brought for the kids last week!

Home for the Holiday

The last couple weeks before Christmas are less about shooting images and more about getting them back from the lab, sorted, framed and delivered. Should be caught up by Friday and then start over again with all the family sessions we do during the 10 day Holiday rush.

Our Fall Colors $99 session with Desktop European Canvas was such a hit we will run the same special again until New Years Eve. Studio or home session. Family, child or even a glamor shoot. Call 244-2636 to reserve your spot.

Thank You to all that took part of the ANNUAL HAVEN Humane Fundraiser. Lots of new and old faces brought in pets again this year. Many used the images for Holiday Cards from my favorite feel good vendor…. SendOutCards.

Enjoy this time with family and friends.

peace and joy,

Studio Photo Shoots still available @ Redding Photographer

This week has ben a bit chilly for outdoor sessions. That is why it is so nice to have a full indoor studio with three complete warm and toasty camera rooms.

There is still time to get photos back for Holiday gifts.

Great for Grandma of the kids.

Wonderful Glamor sessions for hubby or boyfriend.

And still 6 days of the Haven Humane fundraiser with your pets.

Haven 4

Haven Humane Fundraiser Seeking kids with pets

We have three more weeks for the annual Haven Humane Society of Redding photo fundraiser. So far adults and small families have been the main subjets while I have been waiting for more children with pets.

Think back to your childhood years growing up with your first pet. Did you have a family dog that was your trusted friend that went everywhere you did? Can you remember the hours of playing with the dog fetching a stick or swimming at the lake?

Your child deserves a great image with their pet while you help feed the animals at Haven Humane for the winter. A small $25 tax deductable donation to Haven gets you a free session and 5×7 print. Step it up to a $50 donation and receive a session and 8×10 of your favorite shot. Haven gets 100% of each donation so you can even give more to help out.
