From the beginning, April Spaulding had always
had a vision for her photography studio. She wanted
it to be about the experience and products as well as
the art of a professional photographer.
Spaulding is known for personalizing sessions
by going on location but now offers indoor studio
sessions. She wants her clients to just relax and have
fun. Her studio’s vision includes a boutique style
that offers specialty products that are handmade
such as portraits adorned with ribbons, Swarovski
crystals and buttons, frames made out of restored
farm house windows, cedar fence posts and
barnwood; photo collages that tell a story; custom
designed albums for weddings, babies and families
and so much more.
She has partnered with Pictage for its outstanding
quality and service. Pictage offers her clients
two for one prints saving them money.
Spaulding offers clients an array of services such
as on-location wedding photography, bridal studio
portraits, family portraits, babies and children, senior
photos, pet photography specializing in equine,
and sports and team photos. She also offers wedding
clients an opportunity to order wedding accessories
and invitations through her studio. Seniors can order
custom photo announcements through her studio
using her design services or stylArt.
“I have worked hard this last year to hone in on
what clients want in every shape or form. Through
trial and error, I found they want something fresh
and out of the box. April Spaulding Photography
and Design will provide them with just that,” she
said. “We now have the necessary tools to do many
of the techniques you see at larger studios and I am
working hard to expand my learning to accommodate
many needs by clients.”
Spaulding’s professional memberships include:
the Professional Photographers of America and the
Montana Professional Photographer’s Association.
She also is active in the Choteau Jaycees, Choteau
Chamber of Commerce, American Legion Auxiliary,
Montana Anti-Tobacco Coalition and the Front
Range Art Association.
“I am currently looking for model representatives
for the class of 2010. These individuals not
only will get their session free but will also get
discounts and freebies on products,” said Spaulding.
“Stop by or e-mail me at
*NOT DISPLAYED* for an application.”
She offers students who book with her for their
senior portraits a “hometown discount” towards
services and products.
April Spaulding Photography and Design is expanding
from a small home-based studio to a downtown
Choteau location on April 8. The new location
at 19 Third St. N.E. (the Crabtree building), will be
shared with Tammy Hamman of Tammy’s Tailors.
The actual shooting hours will be by appointment
only, but clients are welcome to stop in 8 a.m. to 4
p.m., Monday through Friday and check out the new
location. For more information check out her Web
