Anniversary: Michelle & Josiah

Every year Michelle and Josiah celebrate their anniversary with a photo session, which is a tradition I love! This year I had the honor of being their photographer, and they wanted an apple orchard theme. Besides having the orchard to ourselves, the night of their session was the first fall-feeling night in Kansas City. It was perfect! I had so much fun watching the two of them laugh together throughout our session! Happy anniversary, you two!

Anniversary & Family: Lowell & Sherre

Fifty years ago he proposed to hear at Lake Shawnee, and recently I had the chance to photograph the two of them and their beautiful family there. While a lot can change in 50 years (including the addition of two sons, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren), their love for each other has only grown deeper. It was so fun to capture that and their family as they were all together this summer! Happy (early) 50th anniversary, Lowell and Sherre!

60th Anniversary: Bob & Kay

My grandfather and grandmother have always been an example for me to look up to of a strong marriage. They're loyally devoted to one another, they laugh together and they're still very much in love. This summer they're celebrating 60 years of marriage, and I had the privilege of taking their anniversary photos. The evening was perfect, and so was watching them have so much fun together.

I asked each of my cousins to share a little of what they admire or have learned from Grandfather and Grandmother's example of love and commitment to one another. Enjoy their comments along with a few of the photos from our beautiful evening together below.

 "I've always admired the way Grandfather always cares for Grandmother. It's amazing to see two people who have been together so long love each other so much!" -Jon

 "The biggest thing that I appreciate about their marriage and their relationship is that it's completely focused on God first. And because of their focus on God, they've shown all of us what unconditional love looks like and how important it is to love one another first. I'm so proud of them and so honored that I'm their grandson." -Jordan
