Tim & Cheryl: Smithfield Station 40th Anniversary Session

I had the lovely opportunity to meet this sweet, genuine couple last week.

Tim and Cheryl are our friend Ann’s parents (you may remember Ann and from her and Josh’s

super cute family session

last fall!)! Well, Ann’s parents just celebrated their fortieth wedding anniversary. Yes, you read that right 40th! That is just absolutely awesome!

Spending time with them was just so refreshing. You can seriously tell how much these two love each other and just simply get along. They behaved like old friends, and of course loving parents since Ann tagged along for the session and helped me with my bag (thanks, Ann!)!

Their love for one another was expressed simply, but so, so sweetly. I hope that when Matt and I reach 40 years that he’ll still want to hold my hand, kiss my forehead, and spend an hour looking lovingly at his bride.

These are such sweet, sweet moments that I know Ann and their future children will treasure for years. Anniversary sessions aren’t just for newly weds! Your love and life stage are always unique and special and are worth documenting.

Here are some of my favorites from our time together.

Of course we had to snap a few pictures of Tim and Cheryl with their “grand-pup” since there are no grandchildren yet! 

The light was just spectacular. 


Maybe it’s just me, but I’m loving this angle and light.

And I’ll end with another favorite. So, so sweet!

Tim and Cheryl, thank you so much for letting me document your faithful love to one another. Happy 40th anniversary!
