Five Siblings, A Family Portrait in Rochester NY

What's the perfect gift for your parents' 50th anniversary? How about a portrait of their five best creations? 

These 5 siblings came together from 4 different cities for a surprise portrait session. The resulting images will be gifted to their parents at a small party in their honor. These guys were so much fun to work with and get to know in our time together.

I wish I could be a fly on the wall when their parents open their gift: a beautiful framed portrait and a book. How special!

Thank you Bill, Greg, David, Laura and Sandra for a memorable family session! Enjoy! 


PS: If you are wondering how the gift went over, we received this note the day after the party:

Hi Lori and Erin!
My parents LOVED the portrait!!!  My dad almost cried (I've never seen him come close to crying ever) and my mom was speechless.  It was perfect!!!  My dad said it's going over the couch in the living room.  That, I think, is the highest honor for a portrait. 
They also loved the book but didn't have time to really look at it.  I'm sure they will spend time enjoying it for many many days.
They loved the party, cake, etc, but the highlight was truly the photos.  They called this morning and they thanked us again for the pictures.  
Thank you both for helping us create a fantastic gift and cherished memories for our parents!  
Laura & the siblings
