In the 2020 White House News Photographers Association Eyes of History Still Contest, Schaff's works won several awards. These include the top honor of "Political Photo of the Year", as well as first place in the categories "On Capitol Hill" and "Picture Story/Politics", second place in the categories "Political Portfolio" and "Portfolio", third place in the category "Picture Story/Politics", and award of excellence in the categories "On Capitol Hill" and "Insider's Washington". Her work selected as Political Photo of the Year was from her coverage of the impeachment of Donald Trump; she commented that her approach to that assignment was inspired by portrait photographer Richard Avedon.

Schaff's work was featured in the exhibition "Women Photojournalists of Washington" at the HUB-Robeson Galleries in March/April 2020.


In February 2019, Schaff was hired by The New York Times as a staff photographer. She was the first photographer the newspaper hired full-time in more than 10 years.

Nine of Schaff's photographs were featured in The New York Times' The Year In Pictures 2019.


Bustle commended Schaff for a photograph she took of Abigail Spanberger and her daughter at her victory speech for election to the House of Representatives representing Virginia's 7th congressional district in 2018.

Of the photographs Schaff took during the Ford-Kavanaugh sexual assault hearings, two were featured in Time magazine's Top 100 Photos of 2018 and one was featured in Women Photograph: 2018 Year in Pictures.


In a high-profile freelance assignment, Schaff covered for The New York Times the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which Christine Blasey Ford testified her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Kavanaugh testified denying the allegations. She was one of only eight photographers allowed in the hearing room at once, and one of only two women in the pool of photographers. Three of her photographs from the event were selected for the front page of the newspaper. Schaff received accolades from female photographers for her coverage of the hearing in a male-dominated field; a 2016 World Press Photo report found that women comprised only 15 percent of photojournalists.


As a freelance photojournalist, Schaff covered Melania Trump's visit to the National Gallery, Mark Zuckerberg's testimony in the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal, and the funeral of John McCain. She also wrote several stories for The New York Times.


In 2012 Schaff married professional photojournalist Paul Simkin, director of Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University, where she held the position of assistant director. Schaff described Simkin as her mentor, and said he suggested she consider political photojournalism as a career. She was taught photography by her husband and then worked as a freelance photojournalist for five years.


Schaff studied political science and women's and gender studies at Kenyon College, reviving a B.A. in political science. She originally intended to pursue a career in politics, and worked in the office of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in 2011. She later said that the experience made her no longer want to work in politics.
