When I met Mika my first thought was … I must photograph that girl 🙂 I moved to Lincoln Park in Chicago a week ago, and this sweet friend came to visit for the day yesterday! Mika has the most contagious smile ever, and I am so glad I was able to capture her beauty before she moves to Kansas City. Fun facts about her that I learned while taking her photos —  1. Her hair looks good when blown in any direction 2.When she throws her head back in laughter, you feel ridiculously happy to be in her presence.

Thanks for stepping in front of my camera, Mika. You’re a beautiful soul.
