"Lifestyle photography is a kind of photography which mainly aims to capture portrait/people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday.
The primary goal is to tell stories about people's life or to inspire people in different times. Thus, it covers multidisciplinary types of photography together.
A lifestyle photographer is not only a portrait or people photographer but, one who loves/enjoys photography as art in everyday life but believed to be talented in photography that can also do well in other many disciplines of photography at a time such as landscape, street photography, fashion, wedding and even wildlife with one's unique vision to inspire people's life..."

“Five kids, three dogs, a husband that travels and running a multi-unit organic fast food business does not an easy schedule make. Most days I’m just trying to figure out how to get us all around our table on time for a hot dinner let alone coordinating a photo shoot in full hair and makeup (lol). Thank God for April! She gets my “crazy” (can also be translated as “vision”) and does whatever it takes to wrangle us all to get gorgeous shots. Five kids. Husband. Three dogs. Hair. Makeup. Natural light. Setting sun. There’s so much that goes into it and so much that could go wrong; but, it never does. It’s always perfect. I don’t know how she does it. This woman isn’t a photographer, she’s a goddamn magician- and the photos that she’s captured from our shoots over the years are not only some of our most loved images, but our most cherished memories.” Shannon Allen, ceo/grown, wife, Mom & last minute shoot enthusiast
! “It’s always a pleasure working with April. I knew from the beginning I wanted her to be my wedding photographer and I’ve been using her ever since. She’s loves what she does, always has a vision, super patient and works well with all three of my kids. She’s super professional AND QUICK! My husband hates photo shoots and will only shoot with April. April is the only photographer that has ever made my life easy and I love her for that! Hands down the best photographer in the game!!” -Takira Joyner
"April is simply the best. She has been photographing my family for several years now. Taking professional pictures can be a bit intimidating, but April always makes us feel comfortable right from the start. In making the decision to hire a photographer, I was looking for someone to capture the real spirit of my son. My son is also not the easiest person to photograph in that it’s hard for him to sit still. While this has led to a constant fear we will never get a good shot, April works her MAGIC each and every session and proves me wrong. Anybody can shoot pictures, but there is no comparison to April’s talented eye. She captures the most amazing natural photographs of my son and family. Her beautiful photographs are one of my greatest treasures that I know I will love looking back on in years to come."- C. Rivera
"Working with April has been a more magnificent experience with each session. She has an effortless way of capturing the most priceless moments. No other photographer has been able to snatch these memories so timely and efficiently. She always captures the MONEY shot and 100 more perfect shots thereafter! And collectively obtains the essence of our family's personalities in each image. We are forever indebted to her for the photographs we now have to treasure for the rest of our lives. April has always respected our privacy and is the easiest person to work with. She has become our fairy godmother of photography! "

"I wanted to share the amazing photoshoot experience my family had with April..... I was very impressed by her ability to handle kids. My kids are 5 and 6 years old and all they want to do on a saturday is play or go to the beach! Not to be part of a photoshoot. At least that was before we met April. My kids had the best time with her. Everything was fun, playfull and fast. She knows how to get and capture the best of them. They were not on her timing, posing for April, she was following theirs. The result speaks for itself .Our pictures are gorgeous and so artistic . April s work does not stop when pictures are taken, she has an amazing eye to create special albums and prints on just any surface. Working with my family was not that easy for April as we are very picky. My husband is an art director in fashion photography. He has handled a lot of Chanel campaigns, so his eye is VERY sharp. Before we met April, we had used a lot of different photographers but none of them has managed to get us what we wanted. April is for sure the best and my kids are so excited already for their next photoshoot. Thank you for making that happen" Leslie Benitah
"April's work speaks for itself. Her ability to capture timeless beauty is seen in every photo she takes. Her artistic and creative eye always produce amazing and original photos. Her efficiency, patience and professionalism always comes in handy when shooting my 3 children(ages 6, 3, 1) and husband, who has a very demanding schedule. Our family has used many photographers and April is by far the best. I cannot thank April enough for capturing special moments in our lives that we will cherish forever." Giovanni Lewis
"I have had the pleasure of working with April in both my professional and personal life. Her photos go beyond the surface and she truly captures moments that you do not even remember happening. Each one of her photographs shows emotion, tells a story and truly is art. She makes you feel like an old friend from the first conversation you have which is important in setting the mood and making you comfortable during a photo shoot" O. Wagner
"April has an amazing eye and is able to truly capture those special intimate moments that we all want to be able to have and remember forever. April is able to make you feel comfortable and blends into the environment to where you don't notice that she is there taking pictures, which is a true gift. A true professional, thank you April for your kindness and the special moments that we will have forever.' - Brianna Agosto
"Thank you so much for everything! You have no idea the impact you have had for this event. I'm willing to beg for you to be apart of it next year..." Miami Magazine
