Photography in New Hampshire

April Piotrowski - Black Mill Photography in New Hampshire

Welcome !

I can think of nothing that brings me more joy in this world than making people feel amazing…especially about themselves. The reaction I witnessed in a person when I show them their completed photographs, is a feeling I could live off of for a lifetime. Black Mill photography in New Hampshire specializes in creative portrait photography, boudoir photography, newborn photography, engagement photography, children and families photography, model photography and business headshots, and even events… capturing these images in the studio, on location, or in nature in New Hampshire. My vision is to create beautiful images with an ethereal and mysterious feel while capturing the beauty of each unique individual’s divine human spirit. At Black Mill Photography my hope and greatest wish is that when my client views their images for the first time, they will witness the beauty and magic inside themselves that I have seen all along. What an incredible honor and gift it is to be able to follow such a passion in this life.

With Love and Gratitude,



I would say that Photography fell into my life by happy accident or destiny.. whatever you believe. As a young child, I always wanted to be an artist. I had an aptitude for drawing and painting and my mother placed me in several art courses to try and nurture my skills. As I got older, I stepped away little by little from my passion and fell into the routine of life that I thought I was supposed to have. I spent many years in the restaurant industry, got married, had children, never imagining for a minute that the arts would enter my life again. I played around with a camera from time to time, getting creative with different shots, but never really allowing myself to be swept away by the possibilities of being an artist again. It wasn’t until I took a job as a receptionist for a local photographer that I discovered how amazing this craft was, and how naturally I took to it. I purchased my first camera from a friend whose work greatly inspires me, and I went after this full steam ahead. My inspirations and artistic talents immediately flourished and within a year I was opening my own business. I felt as if I walked right into what I was created to do. It just fit me… my personality, my strengths, my passions. It had me constantly thinking, changing, growing, and creating. Anytime I pick up my camera I have a new experience, discover a new possibility, and feel immediately challenged to think outside the box. I am certain that this ability I have is a gift that has been given to me at the perfect moment in my life, and to share it with the world is a dream that I intend to make the reality.

With Love and Gratitude,

April’s work is absolutely stunning and she is so easy to work with. Her work is far more beautiful, original, and tailored to her clients than your average photographer. Moreover, she is personable, responsive and great at putting her clients at ease. She is great with kids and was able to get beautiful pictures of our very squirmy children. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

I came across April’s work through mutual friends. I’ve worked with many photographers and I have never felt more at ease or comfortable than I did with April. She went above and beyond before the shoot to make sure we were on the same page to after the shoot when the images were complete. She is so patient, creative, and encouraging. The hardest part about working with April was choosing the images I wanted for my portfolio there were so many great shots to choose from. Not a bad problem to have. I highly recommend Black Mill Photography and can’t wait to work with April again!

April is by far the most professional photographer I have worked with! Headshots are the first impression that many of my clients receive, and April’s work perfectly captured my individuality and professionalism. April’s positive and creative attitude allowed me to feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. I will absolutely be using Black Mill Photography again and will be recommending them to everyone who wants beautiful timeless photos.
