Spring High School Senior Photos
Who is best Redding Photographer
Fall High School Seniors
Senior pictures show personality
How can Senior pictures show personality? Easy… get involved with the creative process of clothing, props and style.
You do not have to settle for the cookie cutter yearbook shots that look like Grandma’s high school photos.
You are unique.
You have ideas, passions and interests.
You have a choice of which photographer can draw out the looks and stories you want to tell.
Bring your pets and props.
Wash up the car or motorcycle for pix with your first wheels.
Bring your best buddies, boy or girl friend.
Show your school for team colors.
Reveal your talents with musical instruments…. whether it is a simple flute or grand piano.
We can work indoors or outside. At your home or a meaningful place that has history with you and your family.
You can direct the images you want or let us do what we do best… make you look great and have a fun time in the process.
Seniors can be done all year long but our favorite time of year is fall with the beautiful colors outdoors.
Warm hues of gold and red are perfect for allowing skin tones to glow.
Plus it is cooler than the summer heat when most senior portraits are made.
Senior pictures show personality when you want to do more than the silly fake smile at the camera.

High school sports portraits
The first Yearbook Deadline for the 2017 senior class is Monday. Do you have the photos you want for the class and Grad Ads? Ten years from now when you and friends look back at your photos will you see just the boring cookie cutter mug shot or a dynamic portrait that shows your style and interests? Will you settle for a grab shot in the backyard or park or get a true photo that reveals so fire in your belly?
Girls can still get a complete hair and face MakeOver for only $49 with All Pinned Up right next door to the TA Schmidt Photography building. Look your very best with curls, an updo, even Hollywood glamour hairstyles to set you apart from the rest of your friends.
Of course pets and props are alway encouraged. You can best tell your story with items that are meaningful to you. Collections, your art work, musical instruments, sporting gear, cars and bikes, hunting and fishing equipment and even costumes if you are part of the great local drama departments.
Morning and after school appointments are available first come, first served. If you want to have the MOST fun you can double up with a senior friend so you can share the adventure and memories of the most fun shoot of your life. Remember also, get your family portraits done this fall before you head off to college. Once graduation is over it gets more and more difficult to get the entire gang together and you want to beware the grandparents are not getting any younger. A multi generation session is one of the best things you can do to preserve the family heritage.

Where do I get senior pictures?
It was not that long ago when most high school seniors in Redding could choose the photographer they wanted for their senior portraits. For decades they could choose the pose and clothing that showed real personality and not just the cookie cutter mug shot that blended into the pages of sameness. They showed pets, and sporting medals. They shared dance and drama. Photos with their car and cycles gave variety and interest to the dying yearbook tradition.
Now days the dictatorship of most local schools TELL YOU how you are going to look and where you will be photographed. From their throne they rule the land and laws which run far past the education they are tasked to pass on to the minds of the eager students.
The office say JUMP, you reply HOW HIGH?
It’s funny, these school admins work for YOU not the other way around. They get paid with YOUR tax money and now they continue to enforce where you get to spend your hard earned cash.
Some people disagree and dislike this edict of education. Some folks think a high school senior has EARNED the right to take some responsibility in choosing a photographer for their senior portraits. After all, 11 years of education should have prepared these young adults to start making decisions. At this very moment they are deciding what to do WITH THE REST OF THEIR LIVES choosing colleges and career paths. Surely they can do a simple assignment of picking out a photographer…
If you are or have a high school senior in the house you can choose your photographer. You CAN go to any photographer you choose for your personal photos. You CAN use any photos in the Grad Ads. You CAN tell these school officials what you think about this bully BS rule. (That is if you CAN find them since they seem to move from job to job so often)
Want a real indoor and outside senior photoshoot with different outfits, props, pets, buddies, cars and even MakeOvers for the girls? Call Best in the North State photographer TA Schmidt at 244-2636.
