Hans and Jessi entering their first class together in Riverside, California in September, 1997. Hans was 19 years old. Jessi had just turned 10.
Taking a jump in the same class, which was an Argentine Jumper class. I've always loved this picture because despite the fact that this was a timed competition they both look so perfectly peaceful and content. They won the class by coming in within .001 second of the target time.
