Betelhem's Modeling Debut

I've been doing a lot of Photographing. Shooting Models, Food, Landscapes, Old Houses, Churches, etc. etc. . But my favorite is photographing Children. Recently I got the pleasure of meeting Ms. Betelhem Lowe. The daughter of John & Ikeda Lowe here in Savannah, GA. The day I went to her house for the shoot, she started off kinda of shy. When I mention I had cupcakes and balloons for her the deal was on. We shot in her backyard on a day that was very hot due to direct sun light, so I cut the session short. Here are a few from that day. Also be on the look out for Betelhem in some of my upcoming paintings.

The Return of the Jedi

Finally I'm back, to be honest I don't know where I went.    But I do know I experience my first what some would call being "Burnt Out".  One of my problems is I'm always saying yes to people, when it comes to my art.  I'm o.k. with that except I stock pile too much at one time, then I find myself forgetting  what I agreed to do in the first place.  I'm learning now to pace myself and to spread myself out evenly, allow space between each project.  I apologize to everyone  on the receiving end, blame it on my head and not my heart.  I'm not going to keep rambling , just know I back and I'm human ( which I'm just figuring out myself ).  The cape has been folded, place in a box and stored away.

Here's one of the pictures I took while I was in NYC for a solo show at Dillon Gallery.  I chose this picture to post, because it kind of reminds me of how I felt during my burnt out period.
