hi there!

I’m April Headley and I am so glad you are here!

I am a photographer, make-up artist, and mamma to three busy  teenage boys here in sunny Sarasota, Florida, home of the most beautiful beach, Siesta Key.  When I am not photographing for clients, I enjoy watching and photographing my boys play basketball and volleyball. One of my most favorite things is snuggling with my sweet dog Shelby and watching a movie with my family in our p.j.'s!   


  I love the Lord, my family, and I have a passion to love on people.  I love to help others look and feel better about themselves so I can see them shine their brightest!

I began my career in the photography industry on the other side of the camera – as I tell my children a long, long time ago and a dress size far, far away.  As a model and make-up artist I have worked with many different photographers and now apply that experience as a photographer myself.  Nothing is more satisfying than when I can turn the “I hate the way I look in photos” client into a “wow, I look great in these” client!  By working in the industry for over 20 years I have an advantage on how to photograph the image conscious by using angles and purposeful posing to fool the camera’s eye.  I believe your images should look like the best you, not a completely plastic version of you.  To achieve my style I like my clients to look natural and not posed, for the images to evoke emotion and look like real life.  I put my true heart into my work and am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to your session and image edits because I know I am helping you create an heirloom memory that will be viewed and treasured for years to come!

       Other fun facts:

  • I love my church family and our worship

  • I love Dolphins and Sea Turtles

  • I have 3 younger Sisters that are my best friends

  • I love my Mom and Dad and talk to them almost daily!

  • I enjoy dancing for hours but don't ask me to run!

  • I love being the cheering Momma at Basketball games

  • Love al Fresco dining (when it's not hot out)
