About Us

Brian Baer is one of Nebraska's most sought after senior portrait artists.

Baer Photography first opened in 1994. In 2002 Baer Photography moved to their current location. The studio, nestled in along the Wood River, features a private 17 acre portrait park. This is definitely not your typical Nebraska landscape. Over a thousand large mature trees on the property make for the perfect backdrop any time of year.

Brian's goal each and every session is to reach in and discover, and then capture the spirit of each individual. Brian puts his subjects at ease with his easy going fun personality.
