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!

Rocky Mountain National Park Family Photographer in Estes Park I have a little confession to make.  For years I have avoided Rocky Mountain National Park as a Family Photographer.  I had it in my head that it was a crowded place and gasp, maybe a little overrated considering there are so many beautiful places to […]

Every once in awhile I get asked if I have my own studio to use for photography and the answer to that is no. 90+ percent of the time my clients want to photograph in the beautiful outdoor environs of Colorado so I don’t find that it makes sense for me to maintain a regular […]

Last week Geoff and I drove up to the Winter Park area of Colorado to photograph a proposal and to meet up with this extended family who was just arriving into town. They wanted to get some family photos taken at the very beginning of their trip so that they wouldn’t have to miss out […]

I LOVE love love that figuring out how to get pictures at a proposal is turning out to be a thing now. The planning of it, the figuring out how to capture this awesome moment in someone’s life without ruining the surprise is seriously such a rush! Back in late November I got an email […]

These two daughters featured on the journal today decided that they wanted to gift their parents with a family photography session for the holidays this year. We originally planned to do them a couple days after Christmas, but the weather suddenly turned quite chilly so we decided to wait to do them when it warmed […]

I had so much fun photographing this family last week. Every year I feel so lucky that families who are all in town celebrating the holidays together think of me to capture them while they are celebrating Christmas in one place. And that’s exactly what we did for this family’s photography session. When your family […]

My gorgeous friend Fiona’s family was one of my first sessions of 2018 and I think it’s pretty cool that her husband’s family is now one of my last sessions of 2018. They were somehow able to schedule a photography shoot over the weekend with his parents and his siblings and their kids which is […]

The blog has been a little quieter than usual these past few weeks and I used that time to catch up on all of the retouching for the various sessions I did this past fall. I’m pleased that I’m now getting started on my holiday season family photo push. Every year things get a little […]

Today I get to share one of my favorite family sessions in recent memory just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The sky was completely on fire (look at the beautiful sunset photo!) throughout the session due to a winter storm about to roll in. This family was so much fun to work with too. […]
