Last summer, on one of the warmest days of the year, the four of us spent time at the most amazing house just one hour outside of the city, to shoot our part of the “Mother and Child” book, by Claiborne Swanson Frank. Not only did I never met this amazing woman, photographer, and mother, but also little did I know about her work. Shame on me, because evidently this is one very talented human, and it was only a matter of time before I ordered “American Beauty” (2012) and “Young Hollywood” (2014).
For her latest book “Mother and Child”, Claiborne explored what motherhood means in the 21st century, by capturing 70 iconic families of mothers and children from celebrated names such as Carolina Herrera, Aerin Lauder, and… ours. You can only imagine how extremely honored I am to be part of this, and to have these stunning portraits will we were “creating memories that last forever”. To me, motherhood brought meaning to my life. Nothing else in the world matters more than my children, and they make me want to be a better person every day. What you see here in front of you captures exactly who I am: A loving and caring mother, and a woman who cares about the way she dresses. Which I’m not ashamed of, and will always remain, as long as I have my children by my side.
