I can’t believe the time has finally come to be sharing my *not so little* brother’s senior pictures. I feel like I blinked and he became a young man… I could have sworn he was still the lanky pre-teen playing baseball, the cute third grader riding his bike around, our the chubby toddler climbing up on everything. But no. Now Jacob is in his last year of high school, going off to college in the spring, and I’m not emotionally ready for this!
I still remember the night my little brother was born… I was only seven years old, but the memory is still so vivid in my mind. My older brother, little sister and I were at my grandparents’ house waiting anxiously for my parent’s phone call from the hospital. They hadn’t found out the gender of the baby, so we were all on the edges of our seats wondering if it would be a boy or a girl. When finally the phone rang, and my grandma announced to the room that we had a little brother, my heart skipped a beat. I remember jumping up and down whooping, because I was so excited he was finally here and that I’d have a brother to love on.
Throughout the years it has been so fun watching him grow up. I love watching his personality develop and grow, seeing his passions emerge, and watching him become such a gentleman. Jacob is such a sweet guy, and one of the most loving people I know. He loves running, and is on the cross country and track teams. He was the blondest guy on the soccer team. He is first chair trumpet in the band. And he’s such a hard worker, in and out of school.
Taking these senior pictures for him was so special for me. I love that I was able to capture an exciting moment in his life, and portray who he is right now, so he can look back on them in years to come. I’m thrilled I was able to take these, and I can’t wait to capture more moments in his life through the lens of my camera.
I love you Jacob, and can’t wait to see how the Lord uses you for His glory!
