These two cuties recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary! 25!!! That’s a big deal!!! When Annaliese contacted me about doing a session for her anniversary, my heart melted. I love that she wanted photos of just the two of them. I always try to get “just mom & dad” during a family session, and I’m usually met with “we haven’t done photos like this since our wedding.” All the more reason for me to take them then!!! It’s so important to do things that preserve and strengthen your relationship with your spouse. My husband and I went out for a walk one evening years ago. We ran into some friends who were a few years older and wiser than us who were also out for a walk. In our short conversation, the wife expressed how important it is to do things with each other now because when the kids are grown up and gone, they want to still like each other. It’s kind of funny, like “of course we will still like each other”, but it’s easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the kids, or taking care of your job, or taking care of the house, etc, that you forget to take care of each other. So, whatever anniversary you celebrate next, whatever number of Valentine’s Day this is for you, remember to take care of each other <3
