Ellen Abramo

My Experience:

There was something about Jonathan that spoke to me.  He had a beautiful smile and warm, twinkly eyes.  As a parent, I could only imagine the heartache his family must have felt and still feel at the loss of their beautiful boy whose life was really just beginning.  I wanted them to know I cared about their son, as well.  If something like that happened to one of my children, I would need to know that there was still love and kindness in this world.  So, that is what I set about to achieve in addition to capturing Jonathan’s likeness.  Jonathan attempted to save his friend’s life that night, Yilmary Rodriguez.  His family raised a selfless young man, and that is something to be remembered and celebrated.
