We told my mother & father-in-law that they were coming to sit for a portrait of the two of them. They weren’t thrilled, but we told them, “we love you and we want to have this portrait of you always.” They conceded. What they didn’t know, was that I had a larger family composite portrait planned. It was no small task to get the large DiDio family into my studio through the next several months, but we pulled it off and then I brought them all together to make this treasure for Joyce and Angelo DiDio. And with 17 incredible grandchildren, I really wanted a collection of all the kids with superstar Andrew leading this pack as the oldest grandchild. We could not ask for a better leader for this crazy crew! Andrew leads his siblings and cousins with humor, grace, kindness and steadfastness that we all cherish as he works to pass this on to each one of them!
Gifting day with the grands!
