Harrison, Arkansas Family Photography | The Swinging Bridge Sees the Sweetest Kiss

Over 25 years of marriage.

9 children raised between them both.

11 grandchildren. 

Over 20 great-grandchildren. 


Last Summer, I had the pleasure of spending some time with this outstanding couple. Sheryl & Darrel moved to the Ozarks after visiting the area during a post-retirement vacation. They said they moved here because of its breathtaking beauty. After seeing our grand Ozark mountains, rivers, and valleys, they decided Harrison was going to be their new home. As we walked, they told me about every one of their children and how proud they are of their large family. They talked about their beginnings and everything that lead them to where they are now, the proud great-grandparents of over 20 kids. Darrel's sharp sense of humor and Sheryl's quiet sweetness and warm generosity compliment each other perfectly, and one might surmise that to be the reason their relationship is so obviously strong. 

Overlooking Bear Creek and overgrown with vines, the swinging bridge near the end of Cottonwood Road made a wonderful Summer backdrop for their portrait session. Here, they stopped to steal the sweetest kiss:
