Capturing the marvel of your milestones and everything in between, because every moment matters. 

Your moments, magically

These are the moments that matter most to me, and since I know that these simple moments will one day carry us back in time, I've made it my personal goal to collect these memories for you.

If you're into images that go beyond the stiff, formal poses you can find in your ancestors' archives; if you like to play and tease and snuggle one another; if you are more concerned with the story than perfection -- I'm your girl. Let's make some magic together. 

I'm so glad you've stopped by my site to check things out. If you've read one photographer bio, you've read 'em all, so I'll try to keep things simple. Long story short, I picked up a camera because I craved connection, and in doing so, I found bliss.

I delight in the simplest moments that comprise our daily lives: locks of hair twirled by toddler fingers in fading nighttime hours, sunbeam-illuminated specks of dust, knee-scraped tears kissed off round cheeks. Mud-speckled legs blazing a path through bluestem grasses, teeny fingers clutching tight to wrinkled hands.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret: your family photos don't have to be painful. 

Yup. You read that right.

They don't have to suck

At RSP, I strive to create more than just beautiful images - I want my clients to remember the experience through real emotions brought to life by gentle prompting and flow posing. 

At your session, you can expect to be asked to sit down, stand up, lay down, run around, give playful piggy-back rides, have a footrace, play charades...pretty much anything that comes to mind in the moment.

The result? Images that'll make you smile, cry, laugh; and feel incredibly, beautifully, human.

I can't put into words how much I want y'all to get your pictures taken by Renee Schaffer Photography.

I had so much fun

getting my pictures taken (which is something I dread doing)! If you are in need of any kind of photos, USE HER!

After our session, the first thing
my husband said was,

that was actually pretty fun!

These will be pictures we cherish forever. So happy we found you to capture all these moments for us!
