Let TA Schmidt Photography capture the real you for family and friends

To my astonishment tears pooled in her eyes…
 
It starts about age ten for many girls and they often never outgrow it. We see it all the time in teens, 20’s – 50’s and even sweet little grandma’s in their 80’s.
 
Maybe it’s the mass media with the celebrity obsessed and photoshopped beautiful flawless faces. Or it could be the cruel little boy in 7th grade that called her a name.
 
Somehow a lot of young girls and women of all ages have no confidence in who they are and what they look like. Even at the scheduling phone call they go on and on how they hate being photographed. And never like themselves in photos.
 
Compared with the sneaky grab shots at Christmas with your mouth full of food or the backyard selfies you have to expect a much better experience with a real professional photoshoot.
 
So many people, girls and guys alike remember the poor school photos done year after year. One shot. Good luck with the expression and even having the eyes open!
 
However we do it different.
 
It takes time and skill.
 
Perfected through years of training and thousands of sessions.
 
But it still surprises and delights me when a child, high school senior or mom sheds a tear of joy finally seeing how wonderfully beautiful they are today.
 
It’s there to behold all the time. Step back, take a breath and enjoy the uniqueness of you.
 
Let TA Schmidt Photography capture this moment in time for you and family and friends. Call 244-2636.
For all your photography needs.
Child, high school senior, family, business portraits, commercial images for brochures or the web, pets, glamour and boudoir.
Call 244-2636 for a free consultation for your beautiful unique portrait.

Inside and outdoors you can get senior pictures that look the way you want.

It’s a big day for parents also.
After 12 years of homework, sports, broken hearts and a lot of growing up the senior class of 2017 is near the finish line.
 
In mere months the colleges of America will see the infusion of fresh faces eager to take on new adventures and academic challenges.
 
Finally away from home these kids will spread their wings into the wind of their future. Once away from the hometown it gets more and more difficult to bring them back to our small town Redding.
 
The excitement of the big city.
More people. More opportunity. More music and food. More life. It’s hard to beat the rush of adrenaline when you see all the options for lifestyle and entertainment.
 
Which is why a great senior portrait is more valuable now than ever. You little one has grow strong and tall over the years and will be heading off very soon. What do you have to hold and treasure, to remember these years of growth?
 
Spring is a great time for senior pix! Everything is fresh and green. The Redding heat is still lurking behind the cool clouds. Plus there is still time to have photos fro family and friends.

Are you a senior?

Who do you know that is one of the four kinds of seniors we photograph at TA Schmidt Photography

There are four kind of seniors we photograph at the studio and on location.
High school seniors are still the main part of our business. They are photographed year around indoors and outside. With super stylist Trina at All Pinned Up next door we have MakeOvers for the girls to highlight their best features. Plus with Anne with Styles and Stitches in Palo Cedro the girls also can rent rather than buy expensive formals to round out their wardrobe to show all the different aspects of personality that make them unique.
 
We also do lots of college seniors about to graduate and enter the real adult world. Some of these are simple sessions often adding the family. However most end up being like extended high school photoshoots with the full 5 outfits and lots of choices.
 
Then we see the “middle school seniors”. The 8th graders getting ready to make the big jump into high school. This is Mom’s last opportunity to get a photograph of her “baby” before they grow up beyond the child she remembers.
 
Finally we do seniors… you know, those folks that have been around awhile. What ever age you decide a current senior is whether it is 55 or 66 we do lots of individual and couples portraits for those who have not been in a high school or college in many decades!
For all the kinds of sessions we suggest a pre portrait consultation to chat about clothing and styles. If we know what you are looking to create we can work together to make the best photos of your life.
 
We are still booking family sessions for the Christmas break.

As usual it will fill up fast so call 244-2636 to save your spot.

Also, Christmas and Valentines Day are the two major times we do the glamour and boudoir sessions. If you are looking to get a little sassy with your next session call for an appointment soon.

Catch the fall colors with your senior photos in the studio and outdoors.

The great thing about modern high school seniors is the incredible variety of interests and hobbies they now have to share.
Skilled in music, sports, art makes a well rounded student with lots of areas to pursue and master a craft.
When we do senior pictures the more you bring in props, unique clothing and collections the more special your images become.
A true reflection of who you are right now and where you are going.
To be honest you really can’t ever bring too much. We will pick and choose those things that will photograph best and reveal some of your personality.
We have seen lots of crazy things people bring to a photoshoot.
A favorite chicken.
A jetski.
Buckskins worn by Great Grandpa when he came West for the gold rush.
Unique clothing and costumes created by the student.
Wonderful woodwork had turned by a very talented senior.
We have always said, “If it doesn’t bite or will hurt anybody we want to see it and maybe use it for the shoot”.

Fall high school seniors from TA Schmidt Photography feature Redding’s wonderful autumn colors

Look around outdoors and you will see about half of the golden leaves are already on the ground.
It’s a sad time for me as I love the blast of warm colors and cooler weather to work outside.
The short 2-3 week window we get each year to enjoy this perfect season is not nearly long enough.
If you were looking to do high school senior or family photos with the fall colors I think we have about another week left in the season.
Plus with the time change we lose an hour each day of shooting time now that it gets dark at 5 pm!
If you want in call 244-2636 so we can find you a time and try to work around the weather.
It appears maybe some rain again next week which could be the end of the it all… and I have never been a fan of outdoor photos shoots with naked trees.
Remember we can always shoot indoors at the studio or your home any time.
So for family reunions this Thanksgiving weekend call soon to lock in your spot.
As always we expect Thanksgiving and Christmas to be the two big weeks for updating family and engagement portraits!
For you pet owners we are also in the last week of our annual Haven Humane Pets and People Portrait fundraiser.
Your donation of just $30 gets you a studio photo shoot and a free 5×7 print from your favorite pose. (Additional photos and packages are available)
The last day is the day before Thanksgiving so get the pup to the groomer, put on your Sunday best or favorite casual clothing and let’s make some great portraits while also helping out Redding’s Haven Humane.

In the studio and outdoors TA Schmidt Photography is the Best in North State Photographer voted by the Redding community

It’s that time of year when we are getting our “second shift” of fall high school seniors.
Right now, before all the beautiful color leaves are on the ground there is a last minute push for senior and family photos.
Some of these last minute seniors kids are from the smaller Christian schools.
Others from the county rural schools that have much later deadlines for yearbooks… as late as January for a few.
It’s mostly though the locals wanting so much more than the cookie cutter contract school photogs do each year.
We want to see seniors with their passions, interests, hobbies, collections, friends, pets and wheels.
For the girls we love when they have All Pinned Up do a hair and face makeover to enhance the best of their features.
From the guys we want to see the bravado, the fearless attitude that comes with the age.
Time is short with winter approaching.
Just one more big rain or wind storm and the fall colors will be gone for another year…
Call 244-2636 to hold your spot on our schedule.
These last weeks before Christmas tend to be very busy. (If you have family coming home for Thanksgiving or Christmas reserve your session early because there are limited spots available during the Holiday break when the kids are all home)
Watch next week our Facebook page (TA Schmidt Photography) for a one day limited edition pin up glamour shoot just for Christmas giving. Fun, affordable, sassy and the MakeOver from All Pinned Up is included!
You will love your studio session for children, family, pet, business, glamour or senior photos. As always you can come by to chat about your ideas and get a free clothing consultation so you look your very best.

The first choice of course would be Redding’s Best of the North State Photographer… TA Schmidt Photography!

It is hard to believe how fast 2016 has flown by. The rain filled Winter and Spring turned quickly into a good old hot summer and now Fall is here!

That means the first set of yearbook deadlines are right around the corner. Meaning DAYS away!!

You have had all summer long to get those images made. No more excuses about football and cheerleading practice. No more whining about the hair is the wrong style or color. No more thinking it is too hot to get those outdoor scenes you want.

Good News!
There is still time for girl and guy senior photoshoots for your grad ad or Yearbook photo.
Girls have been thrilled with the low price $49 full hair and makeup treatment with All Pinned Up. Tell Trina Fee the LOOK you want and she will do here magic.  Curly hair or straight.  Updos for formal or a soft casual look that features nothing  but your natural beauty!  Add just $59 for the complete indoor and outside photoshoot and you will look and feel like a hotshot model.

To make your session a personalized creative adventure showing off your style and attitude you need to bring 4-5 different outfits, pets, hobbies, musical  instruments, car and buddies. Think about it… in 20-30-40 years how will your friends remember you at this age? Can you make a Statement of Style, a Declaration of Domain, a Manifesto of how Marvelous you are and are becoming?
Beware though,  cooler fall temps are here and shorter days make it dark before 7pm and those daylight hours are getting less every day. After school there are very limited slots open. During the morning school hours we can usually find you a good time so you can not worry about being rushed.

Call 244-2636 for your TA Schmidt Photo Experience. Remember there is always a Money back guarantee if you don’t love your photo proofs and there is a payment plan to get all the photos, packages, albums and frames you desire!

Where to get senior pictures

Over 10,000 Redding high school seniors have made the choice of TA Schmidt Photography for their senior portraits

Creative Seniors show personality

Awesome photographer

What you bring to the table during your session determines how creative and unique for photos will be. Hobbies, pets, props… if in doubt-Bring It!

 

 

Creative Seniors show personality and reveal style with the clothing and props they bring to the photoshoot.

These last weeks before senior deadlines are my favorite for shooting. It’s so much cooler outside after school. The fall colors are starting to peek in some of the outdoor shots. A lot of the guys have their project cars up and running and the girls have their wardrobe sorted and hair style figured out for the season.
Plus, this is the best time of year for a coastal shoot over in the Eureka/Trinidad area. Imagine your shoot on the beach at sunset. Bring your horse, dune buggy or mountain bike for a session that combines the natural beauty of the Pacific with your own style and look. The three hour beach shoot also includes a mini studio session so you have the best of both worlds.  The more classic formal images and the most beautiful shoots you can imagine on the beach and around the coastal forests.

What REALLY makes the session good is spending a little time to make your photoshoot a reflection of you.

What do you do?
Hobbies, collections, pets, and friends are all part of your life and should be part of your images.
Inside and outdoors we have the only COMPLETE session in the North state and we have All Pinned UP right next door for MakeOvers for the ladies.
Don’t settle for a cookie cutter yearbook mugshot.
Click here to lock in your time for the most fun photoshoot of your life!
