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!

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. […]

I am pretty pumped to share this family’s photos on the journal today because they turned out so nicely! It was probably my last session I did where the fall color was still hanging on outside. Debbie, the matriarch of this family, liked the look of Chautauqua Park and Lost Gulch Overlook so we paired […]

My sister, Danielle, is the nanny for these two adorable boys featured on the journal today. She really wanted to get some professional photos done for the family and set up this session to get family pictures for them and some updated photos of herself with her husband, Jose. The last time we did professional […]

I love when I get to photograph extended families together. I think it’s so nice that even when the kids are all grown up and are having their own kids that families are still finding the time to get dressed up, get together and get pictures created of them as one big unit. That’s something […]

Whoo hoo, I think I have officially made it through blogging all of my sessions and weddings from September! I think it might be my craziest September on record and I’m finishing that wild ride with a special family featured on the journal today. Long time followers probably recognize this couple because I’ve photographed them […]

I am so happy that I get to share this Colorado family’s photos on the blog tonight. I met the mama, Tia, while skating for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. We used to be on the same home team called The Dooms Daisies. We have both since left the league to move onto other things. In […]

When I first met this adorable family they were living up in the northern part of the state and their oldest was just a little 3 month old baby boy. I was just looking at the photos from that session and since then his hair has filled in a ton and he now has a […]

You may recognize this cute couple from years past when I photographed them on a snowy winter day with their doggies up in Summit County, Colorado. It’s been a rough year for them because they lost one of their dogs, Maggie. Losing a pet is so difficult and painful but I am glad that they […]
