“April did a fantastic job taking newborn pictures of our twin boys and also our dog with them. She was so good with calming the babies and keeping everything moving and stress free. She worked very hard to capture the perfect moments and her studio in her home is awesome. We would highly recommend her! “

Mallory McCann

“April was great to work with, especially with two dogs and a one year old. She was so flexible and easy going! We love the candid moments she captured of our son and dogs!”

Kara Pudenz

“I absolutely would recommend April! She was very flexible with the scheduling, which I needed since I have 4 very active kids in sports. April was early and all set up when we arrived. She was fun to work with, she was quick and best of all she captured some BEAUTIFUL pictures at a great price. Also, the turn around time to see some of the pictures was wonderful. It kept me from having to guess what they would look like. I will certainly be using her again!”

“We’ve done both studio and home shoots with April and love having options! She is great with kids and captures the most precious memories. She has an eye for creativity and is great at listening and delivering what you want.”

Elizabeth ‘Johnson’ Ryan

“We met April when looking for a mini shoot for engagement photos. It was absolutely freezing outside. She took the time to give us tips and evening shivering she amazed us with beautiful photos. She is now doing our wedding in November! She is very personable, professional and fun! Also, very quick turn around of our photos!!!”

Recently, I had the privilege of photographing Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa, and Coolio on the Minneapolis leg of their “I Love the 90s Tour.” What a blast!
