I had the great honor of photographing my (not so little) cousin Samantha for her 13th birthday. Her mom and I were looking back at our abysmal 13th birthday photos with her terrible 80s glasses and perm, and my freshly cut inch-long hair (coincidentally that was when I discovered that my hair likes to curl when it's not long...) So together we decided that as my birthday gift to her, we'd take some really stellar photos of Samantha, my munchkin. Guess I can't get away with calling her that too much longer, she's already taller than me!
I sat down with Sammy and asked her if she could have any photo of herself what it would be, and she wanted superhero photos, so you'll see some fun Batman photos at the end with her little brother Grant, my godson. I planned out a lot of the other shots based on things she loves like reading and art. She and I both had a blast!
And so I present to you, my adorable cousin, Samantha.
