samar : omaha senior photography : part 2

I could NOT decide what to blog about next. A beautiful wedding I shot this fall? A chilly family session? A chilly bridal session? Or something from the summer, to remind us that yes, Virginia, it WILL be warm again some day?

Since I'm FREEZING in my office, I decided to go with the latter. So Samar, part 2, it is!

When we last left Samar's senior session (wow, say that ten times fast!) we were basking in the warmth of Omaha's Elmwood park. A few days later, we went less natural and more urban, and continued the shoot at the abandoned train station.

After that, we went...EDGY. And GOTH. And played around with some off-camera lighting.

And oh yeah...I also made her scream at the top of her lungs.


In a dark, abandonded train station.

I'm sure we caused a few people alarm....whoops!

And in case you're wondering...or you can't tell just from looking at the pictures...DAMN this girl can scream!

Samar, I can't wait for your graduation in May. :) Love you tons!

What fun senior pictures! Looks like you both had a blast! Good job!

Well i'm going to comment again since you are doing your cool donation project.
I posted twice by accident before because I thought the first one didn't go.
I'm still figuring out this blog stuff.
Lara, we've got to get together over Christmas break!
