How I spent my Easter Holidays
I hear the greatest inheritance any parent can give their children is positive memories. I spent part of this Easter holiday with my family at the Stone Lodge. Beautiful place. I plan to take some models there for a photoshoot one of these fine days. This photo is me and my son walking in the grass.
The "baddest" news this holiday was the Vatican's response to all the charges against some of their priests for molesting boys.

(I'm glad I got that off my chest).
Zenobia is half Ghanaian, half Lebanese and currently studies in Cyprus. She loves to model. It was fun taking her to the crowded Labadi Beach. We decided to not do a real shoot since everybody was busy staring at her and it made her uncomfortable.
