Celebrating 50 Years – Studio Couples Portrait Flagstaff


I’ve known this wonderful couple for about 16 years but this story goes back even further…

Couples Portrait in Flagstaff Studio


It could have ended before it even began. They were going on a date and Karen was looking forward to riding in Norm’s cool car, a Ford Galaxie 500. They were just teenagers after all. A cool car can be a big selling point!! Sadly, his nice wheels bit the dust right before their date and he pulled up in a Ford Falcon. She was less than impressed. I guess she got over it because they were married the next year – when she was 17 and he was one day past his 19th birthday! They recently celebrated 50 years of marriage so it’s safe to say it all worked out.

They had big plans to celebrate this remarkable milestone but had to delay the party plans due to the minor detail of a global pandemic. The party, like the cool car, will have to wait. But I’m so happy they celebrated with me, in my studio, laughing and telling stories.
