Our Story

Hello!  We are Sean and April Yarger.  I'm a natural light photographer who specializes in children, seniors and head shots.  I also photograph families, engagement, and babies. 

My husband Sean is the IT guy of our business and also helps me with my equipment and shoots.  We have been best friends for almost 30 years.  We've been married for 25.  Sean and I have 8 amazing kiddos together - ages, 5, 5, 10, 13, 16, 18, 20, and 22.  We also have two furry kids, a chocolate labradoodle and a golden doodle.  We both come from very artistic backgrounds and love to travel, shoot, and create art. 

I have loved photography since I took my first class in junior high, and used to enjoy working in the dark room.  After I had my first couple children, my camera started collecting dust while I was busy being a new mom.  In 2008 we adopted our first daughter from China, and invested in some nice camera equipment to document our trip.  Since then I have not put the camera back down!  I love creating memories for our family. 

In 2010 I decided that I loved creating memories for other families too, and that is when April Yarger Photography was born.  I'm a natural light photographer and I shoot with Canon equipment.  My favorite shot is to capture the eyes of a child.  I love getting up close and seeing every details of their eyes; it draws me right in.  Being a mother of 8, I have parented every stage of childhood and beyond.  I love making the photo session fun and not so much posing, but capturing them being kids.  Doing an activity like a tea party or making mud pies is so much more fun than standing and smiling at the camera. 

I look forward to getting to know your family and helping to capture memories that will last a life time. Thanks for asking me to be part of these moments in your family's life.


I look forward to working with your family and getting to know you!
