Summer is the BEST time to get out and create beautiful family photos! The warm weather, beautiful colors, golden light..I could go on for days! With that being said, summer is the busiest time of year for me and weekend availability is limited to none. However, I recently opened up two weekend dates (7/21 & 8/5) strictly for 15 minute sessions so everyone can create beautiful family memories with convenience and budget in mind! These slots will fill up quick so be sure to reserve yours ASAP! 


Summer mini sessions are 15 minutes long and include up to 15 edited digital images, black & white copies of all, and printing rights released. Each 15 minute slot has an assigned location. Below you can view all avialble time slots and book via square. If you have any questions or troubles please don't hesitate to reach out! Looking forward to working with you! :)

A Little Praise..

"April made our family photos completely effortless on our part. We just showed up and she took beautiful photos in which we look so natural--not posed with fake smiles! She was amazing with our baby and toddler, getting them to smile over and over again. She was fun and relaxed. She also chose a location that perfectly suited us. She simply goes the extra mile and has such a photographer's eye. Highly, highly recommend."

"We had the pleasure of working with April to shoot our first family photos after welcoming our first child in the fall. It was a spring shoot but the weather wasn't the greatest so we were curious as to how the photos would turn out... they were amazing!!! April made the entire experience very enjoyable, keeping things fun and making sure that everyone had a genuine smile the whole time. There were so many great photos that we had a hard time deciding which ones we wanted to keep! This was money more than well spent and now we have amazing family photos!
Thank you April!" 

"My son and I had a wonderful experience with April. She really captured some fantastic images of my energetic 2 year old! All of the photos came out great and I can't wait to get some of them on my wall. The photo selection process was easy and April was always great about communication. I look forward to meeting with April again the next time I need photos!"

" April is such a joy to work with! She really wants to give you exactly what you envision with your photos. She asks you what type of photo shoot you want, if you have a location in mind, and what you like. For example, I love wildflowers and she knew of a spot with beautiful flowers to shoot in. She even took up my idea of hiking up the M to shoot. April is really easy to talk to and always has your best interest in mind. My senior pictures turned out amazing and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend her and will go to her for future photos."

"I just received my photos from the shoot my boyfriend and I did with April and they are amazing. They turned out better then I ever imagined. She did a terrific job capturing our personalities.
She was also very easy to work with, she gave us tips and helped with posing but also kept it natural, which is my favorite part of the pictures. I would highly recommend her! It was the best money I have spent all summer"

"April is a fantastic photographer! Great to work with, quick turnaround on editing. Our pictures turned out perfect. Highly recommend her for any family photography session!"

"My family and I recently had family photos taken by April. Not only was she a fun person to work with, but the pictures were amazing. I would highly recommend April Payton Photography to anyone who's looking for a photographer! Thank you April!"

"Two thumbs up for our mini-session with April! Fantastic shots of my two teenage sons along Rattlesnake Creek. She really captured their personalities and the shots didn't look forced or staged. Very happy with our whole experience. April is great to work with!"
