If you're on any social media platform whatsoever, you may already be familiar with AI Portraits, a nifty little site that transforms photos into classically-stylized portraits in the style of Rembrandt and Caravaggio among others...and it's free!

This was way too much fun. Hopefully the site stays up and we can capture a few more iconic moments this season. In the meantime, feel free to share your own!
