Lifestyle Senior Photos - Downtown KC

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.

Saige & I have partnered together before for a shoot & I not only loved what she created, but I absolutely fell in love with her as a person! So when she reached out to me a few weeks ago because she had some spare flowers in her garden [!!!] she wanted to take photos of - I was in. Wrap a beautiful velvet ribbon around that bouquet & take a little walk around the city & here we are!!  Sweet Jillian was our fantastic bouquet holder & she's definitely on my list of people I love shooting with!
All that to say - pretty photos of pretty flowers below. Enjoy!
