I first met Sharstin at a Valentine’s party. I will never forget it, because one of my favorite Lucy stories happened there (Lucy snuck bags of candy in her skirt, and was sneakily eating the entire cookie decoration stash, while I was photographing.) I will also never forget the meeting because, seriously, Sharstin and her girls are stunningly beautiful. Beautiful in the beautiful inside, beautiful outside kinda way. She was pregnant with her sweet Leo, and I just had Jack, and I felt a kinship of talking to another Mother about boys (since I was a novice in that department.)
Sharstin has become a friend, and I can’t think of a sweeter family. If you know Sharstin, you know this to be true. And it was a great honor to photograph a moment in their life. Moments are fleeting, and I’ve been guilty of missing a lot of my own lately. When babies are taking their first steps, and getting their first teeth. When sons are growing up, but not too cool to run with their little sister. When everyone is crying and laughing and spinning. I’ll take it, and photograph it, and keep a tiny bit for my story too.
Thank you so much Sharstin and Andrew! XOXO
