samar : omaha senior photography : part 1

I'm going to take a few minutes to catch up on some long-overdue blog posts. The first will be the senior pictures of a gorgeous girl...who also happens to be my cousin. Who also happens to be someone I've been baby-sitting since she was born, which also happens to make me feel OLD. Old old old. Samar, please don't graduate...I can't have someone I knew at birth old enough to graduate from high school!

We did this shoot on two different days, so I think I'll break it up into two posts. For the first, Samar's outfit reminded me of a vaguely gothic Alice in Wonderland, what with the blue bow headband - that perfectly matched her stunning blue eyes. And let me tell you...I actually had to TONE DOWN the saturation of her eyes in a few pictures because they were so bright and blue that they looked fake.

We took these senior pictures in Elmwood Park in Omaha, NE.

Here she was laughing in mock outrage at something her mom (my very adored Aunt Carol) said.

Okay, I love these next two. They look like something straight out of a fantasy movie - the amazing colors, the light, the wide-eyed innocent expression on the first...LOVE.
