elcome to the journal for April O’Hare Photography! Here you’ll find all of my latest photographic outings with the couples, families, seniors and small businesses that I get to work with and make beautiful photographs for. You may also see a personal post here and there discussing my life or my travels with my teeny family of one husband and three cats! Sometimes I even write advice articles with tips to help make your photo experience better which you can check out under the “Educational” category.  

Take your time and look around! Type in the place where you’ll be getting married in the search box to see if I’ve photographed there before. At the bottom of the page I’ve highlighted some of my favorite sessions and weddings from the past. Grab a drink and have fun going down the photo rabbit hole!

Backyard Summer Bar Mitzvah Party in Colorado

September 1, 2022

Bar Mitzvah at B’nai Chaim with Backyard Party at Home During Summer

I am super excited to get to share Asher’s bar mitzvah photos on the journal today. I first met this family just a few years ago when I photographed his big sister’s bat mitzvah. That year my schedule didn’t line up to be able to capture the fun backyard party shenanigans at their house that evening but this year I was able to capture the party part of the day for them in addition to the service at B’Nai Chaim. Asher did a wonderful job at his bar mitzvah. His family was so proud of him. Later that afternoon and evening we captured some of the party fun at their backyard. They had some sort of 9 square lawn game that I can’t remember the name of going almost the whole time and we also created a bunch of nice family photos in the garden. I picked out just a small amount of my favorites to share below.

Mazel Tov, Asher!
