Amal - My New Painting Project

This is Amal, who lives in Pakistan. The photo was taken by her uncle Kamran, who is a photographer. I absolutely fell in love with this little girl and had a heck of a time choosing one photo out of many great shots. She is so stunningly beautiful!

Now the dilemma is how to paint her...
Do I paint her exactly as in the photo, or should I turn it into a figurative piece, or just do two different paintings?
