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!

Today is the very first day of 2014. I want to begin this post by talking a little bit about last year. 2013 was a bit of a wild ride for me. Mostly because my mom was diagnosed with tongue cancer at the beginning of the year and underwent a very scary surgery where they […]

From time to time, I like to peruse a particular online wedding forum where I have learned a lot about how to be a better photographer and how to provide a better experience for my clients. Recently, there was an article posted there that provided fodder for a pretty thoughtful discussion. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathleen-trenske/the-case-against-good-enough_b_2967170.html The author makes […]

Today’s blog post is very special to me. I am the oldest in a very large family and the youngest in our clan is turning 18 in two days which means I am officially old now;) When I was 13 years old my baby brother Damien was born. We have a very different relationship than […]

Some frond plants photographed along the trail in Lava Tree State Park We went back to Volcanoes National Park that evening to see it in the dark. I was able to get this by placing my camera on the longest timer possible and setting it on the ledge. I feel warm just looking at it! […]

Love how wild and crazy this one is. How many plants have little feathers? The pretty Wananalua Congregationalist Church in Hana. The Waimoku Falls waterfall at the end of the Pipiwai Trail could barely fit in the frame! We stayed at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort over on the southwest side of the island. We […]

I can’t believe some of the plants still looked so nice! Mistletoe kisses! I have some special people featured on the blog today. Brandon is my little brother-in-law and he proposed to his girlfriend Lauren over Christmas break. These two good looking people met while attending Eastern Washington University in Cheney. Brandon is one of […]

2012 has been such a whirlwind year for me. I kept myself really busy with roller derby, photography, and a pretty decent amount of travel too. But the best part about 2012 was that I got to marry my best friend:) I think I could probably go on and on about all of the highlights […]

So excited to see how my pro pictures turned out.  But in the meantime I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the photobooth at our wedding at Chatfield Botanic Gardens last month.  My photobooth is a little different from the traditional style.  I actually call it an “Outside of the Box” photobooth because […]

It’s official.  We’re back from the best honeymoon ever.  And it feels weird to be home getting work done.  Not sure when I’ll be able to get through all of my Hawaii photos (I haven’t even finished all of the ones from my Euro vacation in August!) but I did want to share at least one before work […]
