I hate hate hate having pictures taken of me. I don’t consider myself photogenic and can count on one hand pictures of myself that I really like.

Part of the memorial service featured a video that the family had made to honor their son and much of it was photos that they had taken of him during his two years of life. It was incredibly beautiful and impressive the amount of photos that they had, not just of him, but of all of them together as a family.
