Family get together :) {pittsburg, tx engagement and portrait photographer}


Family get togethers can be quite fun and this one was :).

Last Saturday, we got together with Mom's side of the family to celebrate Mother's Day.

Here's what decorated the dessert table: a lovely bouquet made by my cousin Amanda :). It was a gift to Mamie :).


One of Mamie's cute outdoor decorations :D.


And here's her beautiful self! :D


I LOVE this shot of Aunt Kathy and my cousin Amanda. Pretty, y'all :).


Then Mom got in on it :).


Here's Papa and Jim (Amanda's husband) :).


On the right is brutha Jay :). Oh, as you can see, we had hamburgers. My dad made them and he makes the best hamburger patties!!! No lie!! It's not just because he's my dad; even strangers say so! So, if you're ever passing through Mt. Pleasant, TX (we're right off of I-30) come on by and Dad'll cook some and you can testify of the greatness ;D.


Another super cute decoration of Mamie's :).


And this is Papa and Mamie's dog Chris (Christopher to be exact ;) ). He's calm, laid back, and super loyal to Papa :).


Aww, here are those good lookin' parents of mine :D.


Checkin' out some group shots Jim took on his camera.


They're so cute :D.


Aww!!


Laughin' Mama :D.


Man, they were just overflowing with cuteness that evening!


My TOMS :).


Pretty Amanda :).


What I loved most about this family get together was the fact that we spent most of the time outside!! It was so nice :). Here we are walking through the woods.



Haha, and here we have my mom and Mamie enjoying being silly together :D.



And then, for some reason, we started having races across the field! It was so random and yet so fun :D.


This lovely warm light...mmmm.


Haha, Mamie tricked Mom.




Happy running :D.


"It's not about how fast you go. It's all about your form."-Aunt Kathy ;D



Then we headed down the road a bit...


...to visit an old church building :).



Outside, inside :).


Have a happy day! :D

With a smile,

P.S. Some evening, try having random races across your yard with your family. It's quite fun :D.
