This picture is from my wedding, during the traditional father daughter dance. As I did not have a father to dance with while Freddie danced with his mother, this incredible man stepped in. Michael Gershman. I have been so fortunate to have this great man in my life. He is the greatest example of everything a truly selfless man and father should be. I am so fortunate that his two daughters, are so gracious to share him with me. I learned to love great sushi , from him. And while he tried to teach me his love of red wine, it was his love of sake that stuck with me. When I got my Akita, it was Michael that taught me how to care for a large dog. His Thanksgiving dinners are epic. Everything I know about great photography and lighting , is because of Michael. The lessons I learned from him are endless. But more than lessons, there was love. The world lost Michael on Saturday. His love of life was permeating, and I'm going to try to put aside the grief and love life for him. Thank you Lauren and Abby, for always sharing your Dad with me. Thank you Cecilia for making him so happy and encouraging him to explore so many new pa s sions. I am lucky to have been loved by Michael.
