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!

Lovely Maternity Portraits in a Wnter Forest Setting in Colorado The session featured on today’s journal entry turned out beautifully. And, I have to say, it’s incredible how relaxed and natural this couple looks in their photos because it was pretty frigid out there when we created these. Luckily, it wasn’t a super windy day […]
