This is YOUR Year!

Senior portraits are a huge part of your senior year and I'm thrilled that you are considering Karen Stauffer photography to help you document this amazing time of your life.

I have been where you are and let me tell you... You will miss this!!  You are going to miss hearing her sing with her guitar while she was chasing her dreams, you're gona miss the laughter from the other room as she hangs out with her friends.  

You will miss the games, the sleepovers and the joy of having her home everyday.  

You will remember how she trembled and how her hair smalled when you held her after her heart was broken.  

You will remember the smile she gave you when she found that perfect prom dress.  

You are going to look back at this day over and over again and recall how much fun it was spending time with her while she got to enjoy this senior experience.  And she deserves better than 'good enough'.

I specialize in senior portraits. This means my education, training, and expertise is all about high school senior portrait photography. It also means my focus is YOU!

Karen Stauffer photography is known for authentic, clean and bold senior portraits, attention to detail, and outstanding customer service from the first inquiry to the final product delivery.  I want to provide an unforgettable session experience and a sense of confidence that you will carry with you throughout your life. 

Experience the fun of a professional photoshoot and trust us to show you how incredibly amazing you truly are.  




Once your session fee has been paid we will have a short in person meeting and is the kick off to your senior portrait experience. What did you see in my work that inspired you? What are your ideas for a photo session that captures your unique personality? We'll talk in detail about where to go, what to wear, and what prints and products will best showcase your senior portraits. Your premiere preview and ordering appointment will be set and I'll send you home with my magazine to help you prepare for the session!


Now the fun begins! We will meet at my home studio where I'll help you look and feel your best as we review your outfits and set the stage for your session. Your job is to simply be yourself. We will move through your two hour shoot naturally and spontaneously finding perfect light, beautiful color and organic textures to complement your outfits and personality.


A couple of weeks after your session back at the studio you view your final edited images in a video presentation and then go through them one by one to select your favorites. Together will determine your portrait needs, discuss sizes and styles, and create your custom portrait package. If you choose a collection that includes high-resolution digital files, you'll take them home that day.


3 to 4 weeks after your preview and ordering appointment you're gorgeous wall art and albums be delivered!
