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!

Extended Family Portraits in the Woods of CO

Boulder Family Photos at Shanahan Ridge Trailhead During Spring

This family bought a gift certificate for their mom as a gift over a year ago with the intent to get a 3 generation portrait created. But, when her granddaughter got pregnant they decided to push it back a little more to do a 4 generation family portrait. We met up at the Shanahan Ridge Trailhead about a week ago for these and luckily the recent fire did not touch this beautiful section of the woods in Boulder. I’ve started heading to this trailhead to escape some of the crowds at other popular trailheads in the area and I really love how quickly it feels like you’re out in nature there. I love that they got to spend a little bit of quality family time hanging out together while we created these. Below are just a small handful of some of my favorites.

If you’re interested in getting your own generational family portrait created, be sure to take a look at the FAMILIES page of my site and get in touch! I’d love to help with that!
