Recently, I had the opportunity to Photograph my brother.
His talent and creativity comes out in many forms ,
But I am most impressed by his ability to silence a room
and fill it with pure emotion from his Cello.

Neeedless to say,
A Portrait of Jacob was long overDue.

The Temperature was around 25 degrees with freezing winds blowing around 45 mph.

This is one of the coldest and windiest days I can remember,

But for some reason, we both knew it was going to be worth it….

And It was!

The experience of listening to the sound of “Ave Maria”

vs. the sounds of the Ocean was one I will never forget.
