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!

Colorful Senior Photos at Denver Botanic Gardens in Denver

August 21, 2023

Summertime Senior Portraits at Denver Botanic Gardens

It feels like such a short amount of time has passed since I photographed Aliya’s bat mitzvah but she’s already going to be a senior this year! I feel so lucky that I’ve gotten to photograph her family a couple of times now (her brother just had his bar mitzvah too!) and now I get to share these absolutely stunning photos of her! There’s never enough time to get as many nice portraits as I would like at an event so it was fun to actually get to slow down a little bit and explore the gardens with Aliya and her mom that day while creating these with her. As you can see from the large number of photos below, I had a tough time narrowing down what to share on the journal. But managed to stick with these as my top favorites that day.
