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!

Five Points Mural Art Senior Photos in Denver

October 1, 2020

Artistic Senior Photos with Mural Art in the Historic Five Points Neighborhood of Denver

Last summer I photographed a senior who I had photographed way back when she was a little girl in preschool and I realized that my business has now been around long enough that this was going to start to happen more.  I am still coming to terms with the aging process, ha.  This year I have another senior gal who came back to me all of these years later.  I first photographed Camille with her sister back when they were little at their home here in Denver. I had to dig up one of those old photos to share both because it’s fun to see how much she’s grown, but also because I’ve grown a lot with my photography since then too!

Camille is quite an artistic person herself and even lettered in theater at her high school.  She also told me about a really neat project she worked on where she applied for a grant to stencil haiku poetry all along Colfax between the Bluebird and East High School.  I am so impressed with her because I know it’s not easy to deal with the bureaucracy that comes with putting together public projects like that.  I am looking forward to heading over there and taking a walk to see it in person soon!  If you’d like to find out more about that project, please head over to the Bluebird Haiku Website.

Being an art lover, it made sense for us to do part of the session in the Five Points part of town in an area now known as “Rino Arts District” where there is a large cluster of cool mural art found throughout the old warehouse buildings and alleyways. We finished up over on her side of town at City Park to get some nice nature and greenery too.  I am so excited that I was even able to somehow get the moon in one of her photos!  Check out this small handful of some of my favorites from her session below!

(If you know who one of the artists are, please comment to let me know.  I spent a lot of time trying to find the ones I missed and couldn’t find them online.  I’d love to credit their work!)
