A Superpower Black Tie Event

The Lee family has been taking professional family pictures since before they were a squad of 5…we won’t say “Party of Five” since the parents were not killed in a drunk driver car accident like the 90’s TV show.  So we’ll say squad of 5 since they all basically have their own superpowers. When you…
