Mika + Enok - Wildbird Sling

Mika & I have been friends on the internet for a few years, and we finally really spent time together just before Christmas, as I took family photos for her! So now that we’re real life friends - it was only appropriate we hung out AGAIN to take more photos.

Wildbird is a sling company for mumma’s to strap their sweet babes to themselves & make life a little bit easier. Mika partnered with them & needed a few photos - so where else would you go in the dead middle of winter? Johns Greenhouse. Yes. That’s where we went. & the warm atmosphere & green plants gave us life for one sweet beautiful hour.

Ok - enjoy sweet, toothless Enok & his beautiful mother, Mika.

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.
