Unique Senior Portraits Make You Look Your Best

At Schaefer Photography, we love senior shoots so much! It ranks as one of our favorite sessions to shoot.  There is something special about capturing a young adult about to embark on a whole new life adventure.  Their spirits are high while they are preparing for graduation in their cap and gown and they have a whole new look on life stepping out into the exciting unknown.  Plus, let’s face it, most seniors know how to dress pretty freaking awesome when they know they’re having their picture taken! But don’t worry at all if you’ve not been in front of a camera because we’ve got you covered! We’ll help you look your best! From choosing the perfect location, giving you advice on outfits and helping you pose so you look natural – we will capture the most flattering angles. You can trust us to make you look your best!

We are based in Columbia, Mo. but we are happy to come to your town! We charge a small travel fee for mileage if we need to go more than 60 miles outside of Columbia.

So, let’s go have some fun, showcase your personality and capture your style so that one day you can look back on this awesome time in your life.

Be sure to check out your high school photo submission deadline for the yearbook and get on our schedule early! Some Columbia High Schools need senior photos by early December. We edit in the order we shoot sessions and during the fall our turn times can approach 4-6 weeks from the shoot date with our jam packed schedule. We want to make sure you have your photos when you need them!!

"I can’t even explain how satisfied I am with the photos from my graduation shoot with Scott and Shannon. The pictures are literally perfection!! Working with them was so amazing! Their work is most definitely deserving of more than 5 stars."

Schaefer Photography is the BEST! They were an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way. Scott and Shannon were very responsive in the scheduling process, and they made the photo shoot itself so much fun! We were blown away by the quality and artistry of the senior photos. We cannot recommend Schaefer Photography highly enough!
