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!

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.

Family Portraits With Buffalo Mountain Backdrop Summit County

December 9, 2021

Summit County Colorado Family Portraits at Sapphire Point

The family featured on the journal today were the stars of one of my favorite winter photoshoots in recent memory. We thought we’d be photographing with snow again since it’s already well into December, but Colorado is famously dealing with drought-like conditions yet again (everyone, please go out and do a snow dance in hopes that we get a good amount tomorrow since it’s in the forecast!) We originally planned to photograph during the fall, but were forced to change plans due to circumstances outside of our control and went with another early December session. We assumed photographing up in Summit County would mean snow on the ground but it was dry as a bone with the only snow off in the distance on the mountain peaks. To be honest, it wasn’t the worst thing in the world since their youngest wasn’t in the mood for photos that evening so a cold blustery day might have made it even harder. But with the nice warm weather, we managed to get these cute pictures for them.
