"Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else."
~ Judy Garland


Our goal at Schaldecker Studios is to offer a once in a lifetime senior
portrait experience, and an amazing product to cherish for a lifetime.



Your child’s graduation marks a significant turning point in their life, and naturally, it’s a momentous occasion for you as well. The upcoming year promises to be filled with the hustle of academic responsibilities, college applications, and joyous celebrations. We’re passionate about encapsulating the essence of your child’s unique journey. Their personality, passions, and the way they light up your life are the stories we aim to tell through our lens. Imagine a photo session that’s all about them—fun, relaxed, and utterly memorable. We’ll collaborate to pick the perfect outfits, scout the ideal locations, and bring your vision of the senior photo collection to life. Choosing us as your senior photographer means securing a treasure trove of stunning images that will keep the memory of your senior’s achievements alive, even as they embark on their college adventure. To you, your child means the world, and this investment? It’s truly invaluable.



As you get ready to start the rest of your life how do you want to remember now? Passions, hobbies, and exciting future plans- let's roll them into a fun afternoon of photos! Shoot at school, fields, parks, or tell me about meaningful places. If there is somewhere you have always wanted to shoot -go for it!

BY ALL MEANS BRING PROPS, PETS, AND PERSONALITY! We travel for free in a 20 miles radius of Cedar Rapids / Marion. Additional travel is possible for small travel expense



3-4 outfits are easily workable in a two hour block, it depends on how fast you can change. A quick change can be the same jeans with different jackets, shirts, or scarves. But what about those costumes or uniforms? Don't forget them- this is a chance to take...well chances! Remember to bring a big blanket if the location does not have a facility to change in.

Schaldecker Studios took seniors pictures for both of our seniors. They were incredibly flexible with their differing interests, had great ideas for locations & poses, were laid back & willing to try pretty much anything even wrangling our crazy pets Into the photos. The pictures turned out amazing & came back super quick. I would use them again in a heartbeat! Highly recommend!     ~ Shannon
