Schaumburg Photography



Emmalee Schaumburg, CPP

We all have a different story to tell. We come from different walks of life and have different experiences to share. What I love most about my job is watching your unique story unfold before my lens.

I believe the process of capturing your uniqueness should be fun. It's why I enjoy making it a collaborative process and it's why I like to get to know who you are before pressing the shutter.

Curiosity is where my passion for photography began. Standing in the dark room, waiting and watching stories unfold in a pool of chemicals fascinated me, and I've been addicted to the art of photographic storytelling ever since.

When I'm not behind the lens, you can find me spending time with my children, shooting pool, knitting or out and about in Downtown Lawrence drinking way too much coffee.

That's my story, what's yours?

Check out some of my work, see the behind the scenes photos below or give me a shout — I look forward to learning more about you and having what will no doubt be a fun time capturing what makes you, well, you.

The Studio

Schaumburg Photography is a portrait studio based out of Lawrence, KS serving the greater Kansas City area. Schaumburg Photography was started by Emmlaee Schaumburg in 2005 in her home. Seven years later she opened the doors to her first studio in Lawrence, Kansas. Two years later, in 2014, a beautiful historic building became available a few blocks away and she moved her studio to it’s current location, 500 Locust Street, Lawrence, Kansas.

Emmalee’s goal is to create artwork for your home and provide you with albums, prints and products you can enjoy for generations to come. Our full service studio offers more than just digital images. We want to see you walk away with a finished product ready to hang on your wall, display on your coffee table or pass down to the generations of your family.
