“April is a dream to work with! She is so creative and hit every shot right on the mark. We were looking for some innovative product shots for our company and she was great at ideating, producing and creating the look we wanted in post. She also came to our office and took headshots of our whole team in less than two hours. She comes prepared and works efficiently. I highly recommend April for your next project!”

“April is amazing! She made me feel comfortable and reminded me that headshots are meant to be fun. April cares that her clients are happy with her shots, and her knack of finding just the right light to compliment a face, even at high noon is incredible. Very happy with my photos and experience. Cannot recommend her enough.”

“April was all that you could ask for in a headshot photographer. Made the experience fun, went above what called for, and was very responsive in providing the finished shots. Would go back for an additional session in a heartbeat.”


“I had a great experience working with April. She was friendly and helpful and made some great recommendations for the head shot photos. I was able to review the photos as she was taking them so we could make any necessary adjustments right away. She was also sensitive to any concerns I had. The photos were exactly what I needed and I had the final, edited photos back the same day. I would recommend April!”
