Art & Life with April DelaFuente

Today we’d like to introduce you to April DelaFuente.

April, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I picked up my first digital camera at 13 years old. It was a cheap see through camera. I mainly took landscape and nature photos. When I started high school, my high school offered a photography class. This is where I fell in love with photography. This class was actually all about film photography. I learned how to develop film in the dark room. My senior year, I started learning about digital photography and became interested in portrait photography. Here is where I started watching YouTube tutorials and utilizing Pinterest. My friends started asking me to take their pictures and I had my first wedding in 2010. In 2012, my husband encouraged me to turn my hobby into a business.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I am photographer who captures people’s real emotions. I want my clients to look back at their photos and remember the exact feeling they had when they had their photo taken.

What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others? Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
Yes because there isn’t that much focus on art today than there was 20 years ago. People now are more business driven and care about getting things faster and cheaper. I don’t believe any local, national, or international events have affected my art personally.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
