Lifestyle Urban Senior Photos - Ali Happer Photo

I remember the first time someone showed me their senior photos. I was in college in Australia, and my American roommate handed me a pocket sized photo of her holding her guitar. I had never heard of someone getting senior photos done before & I had so many questions.
Well now, almost 10 years later & living in the USA, I have a bit of a better understanding of them. Except you won’t see me taking anyone’s photos, posed with their hobby accessory of choice, or perched up against their car. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what I do!
So when Alivia said she wanted urban senior photos - I knew we would be in for a good time. I loved walking around town with her & the light was so good to me. I kept asking her how often she takes photos with her friends, but she said she doesn’t. ha!🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
Needless to say, she made my job very easy & we had such a great time.

River Market Lovers Portraits - Kansas City

Do you know what my ideal date night is? It was what I did with Blake & Shalana [hiiiii third wheel!!] We walked by the river, sat on the bench where they first started dating & then we all went to get ice cream. It was a beautiful evening & the sun was absolute magic peaking through the trees. I love taking photos when it feels like I get to just hang out with friends who let me take their photos.
