It’s hard to believe that it was almost exactly a year ago when we did Owen’s newborn session. The difference?!? It’ll always amaze me how babies can change so much in one fast year.  Since outdoor options are quite limited this time of year, we headed to Ott’s to take advantage of the beautiful greenery + warm indoor temperature. It was perfect. And then back to my studio for the most fun part… the cake! I absolutely love one year old photo sessions!

Happy Birthday Owen! And Jeff + Teresa… congratulations on surviving the first year!


Some babies just don’t love the cake mess. I felt a little bad while taking these, but I couldn’t help myself…

  • Katelyn Beltz - I love all of these! Such a great job April!!

A few years ago I photographed Dugan, their Gordon Setter. And in December I photographed their brand new baby boy, Declan, at only one week old…


And since little Declan was born only a few days before Christmas, we had to grab a holiday photo…

I know that there are many many people that hate Valentine’s Day… It’s a Hallmark holiday, you should show people that you love them every day… Yes, yes, I know. But I still love it. I still love a day that celebrates love. I love a day that starts with heart shaped pancakes and ends with cupcakes with icing hearts. And more importantly, I love that we celebrate that 13 years ago on Valentine’s Day, I met my husband. Our Valentine’s Days have changed a bit in recent years, becoming a bit more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-focused than they were in the past, but I wouldn’t change any of it. Here’s a little look at our Valentine’s Day…


Photographer’s children are notoriously hard to photograph. More often than not, I get smiles like these…


  • Concetta Giannetti Velasquez - So sweet!

  • Jessica Cogan - April she is freakin cute!!! I love seeing her grow up!!! Love her hair!!!

  • Ashley Lynn Fry - Adorable! And I must know where you got the custom viewfinder!? That is fabtastic!

  • Danielle - The customizable view masters are great for boudoir sessions too.

  • April - I love them! I think they’re such a fun little gift!
