Now, I've been trying to practice gradients because everyone seems to be using them, and my dad already mastered the skill. So I did another picture. I didn't take the picture, I'm only about 3 years old. But it's just so darn cute!
This is me and my brother when we were in my cousin Chris's wedding in 1988. I was apparently miserable throughout the entire ceremony and all though pictures, so the photog caught Dave trying to cheer me up. Valiant effort on his part. And, to this day, he is pretty much the only person who can make me laugh when I'm at my lowest.
