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!
