Extended Family Portraits by the Erie Canal

What better way to celebrate your 50th anniversary than surrounded by the people you created (and their families)? Richard and Lori's children honored them with this photo session and a weekend of fun events together. It's not often you get all 18 people in one place, and we were honored to help them capture this milestone.

Getting all 4 kids and 8 grandkids in one place was no small feat and took months of planning. But it was all worth it, and we had a gorgeous summer day. Being by the water was important to them, so when they sun came out, everyone (i.e. - anyone taller than Erin) was helpful in making sure we got the shot! 

Thanks to all of our extra assistants that day! (see the outtake below) The diffuser and umbrella allowed us to shoot in the sunny areas by the Erie Canal.

Happy 50th Anniversary, here is to the next 50 years!
