Now that everyone has their Christmas present senior portrait of Catherine, I can go for the big reveal here on the blog.
Drum roll, please:
Pretty amazing — and even more so when you consider this is how she used to look. (Look, it took almost 18 years to grow hair!)
Those of you who know my story know, too, that I couldn’t resist a little comparison.
Here’s my senior portrait, from 1984, and Catherine today.
We both fussed and fussed for these photos. I spent as much time mixing lipsticks to get just the right shade as she did curling her hair, but somehow, it doesn’t matter.
I’m struck by how, viewed side-by-side, they are an ideal reflection of us both — individually and together.
