Thanks to our families, whose endless support, encouragement, love, and patience helped make this book possible. We could never have done it without you.

To Karen, Bethany, and Heather, who endured my all-night writing binges, midday naps, and all-too-frequent dinner table absences with a patience and good humor that I most surely did not deserve. I am truly blessed, and profoundly grateful for the three of you. —Craig

To Annette, Amanda, and Sarah, who patiently waited to leave on vacation while I finished charging the digital cameras, and who pretended to be interested while we discussed pixels and image compression at the dinner table. The smiles and memories we collected over the past few months will be cherished forever. —Chris
