About Me

This is me at Old Car City in White, Georgia

My name is April Carlson, and I grew up in the swamps of Louisiana in the United States.  I have lived many places in the south, and currently reside in Alpharetta, Georgia.  I am amazed by the interesting people and intriguing places here and am exploring and photographing them as often as possible.

I have always seen my world through pictures.  I have album upon album of photos that I took growing up, but never considered “being a photographer”.  After a long education (degree in finance and MBA) and short career in business (commercial lender), I was lucky enough to be a stay at home mom.

I have three boys and wanted to capture their passion for the game of soccer in photos. I began to study photography and practice daily and then started a sports photography business called April Carlson Photography ( http://www.aprilcarlsonphotography.com/).  I specialize in senior portraits and action sports photos.  Contact me if you live in Atlanta and are interested in booking a shoot (acarlsonphotography@gmail.com).

As my boys grow up and move away, I am focusing more on travel photography.  I currently have a limited budget for travel so will be staying close to home and exploring the Atlanta area.  As I have the opportunity,  I would love to travel more throughout the United States.  I have been to many of the National Parks in the U.S. and would love to try to see my favorites again and hit some that are on my bucket list.  Eventually, when my husband and I are empty nesters we would love to spend some time traveling abroad.
