Jacoby’s cool tattoo

I photographed Jacoby’s girlfried, Ella, with her accordion a few days ago, and now it’s time for a pic of the other half of the couple. Jacoby Conatser has a really nice banjo, and he plays it very well. He brought it up to my studio for a photo session, and I did get several […]
