Redding Family Photos
Do you have a TA Schmidt portrait in your home yet?
That tag line has been running for over 30 years on the radio, on TV and in print. With over 10,000 high school seniors, almost 800 weddings, tens of thousands of children and thousands of family sessions we have photographed much of Redding as it has continued to grow.
Since 1978 working for the old school Dick Black Studio on the North end of the Mall, then working at Crown Camera for a couple years and finally breaking out on my own with TA Schmidt Photography.
We have seen generations of kids, seniors and families grow and move on. My original brides from years ago brought me children that turned into seniors that turned into weddings that turned into children and seniors again!
In a lot of cases I feel I am part of the family as I have been witness to all the milestone events. Shared in the joys and sadden by the sorrows. Made many friends and lost too many good people over the years.
The next few years will be our swan song as I start to semi retire. Soon, we will finally start to accept only or past VIP clients and direct referrals. I will be spending more time with my SendOutCards.com team and more time writing sales copy for by on line business and a few like minded clients.
For now though it is business as usual.
This time of year we are mostly doing indoor and outdoor Seniors 2017 and family sessions. Remember, if your school has a CONTRACT photographer– you do NOT have to do anything more than the yearbook mugshot. Your personal photos for family and friends can be done with us so you get the images you really want. (If you are thinking you want the Eureka Coast senior session call not to reserve your spot. There is a VERy limited number of sunsets available!)
Starting next month after classrooms settle down we get back into our annual school picture photography. If you are unhappy with the contract photographer’s work at your elementary school have your school’s principal call us to set up a new fun experience the kids love and parents are finally happy with school pix!
