Aunt Kathy's birthday brunch {mt. pleasant, tx engagement and portrait photographer}

Last Friday was my Aunt Kathy's 49th birthday and her daughter Amanda offered to make a brunch for all of us girls in celebration :D. That's Amanda you see below: Amanda Diane Tilley (she's been married for close to a year and a half now :) ). The food was GREAT! She did a fantastic job :).

Here's the rest of the gals of my Mom's side of the family (Aunt Kathy is my mom's older sister). From left to right we see Kathleen Ann Wootten (the birthday girl :D ), Michele Ann Greene (mother of mine ;) ), Amanda Diane Tilley (cousin of mine), and Lillian May Malone (grandmother of mine lovingly called "Mamie" by me and "Grams" by Amanda).

While Amanda was finishing preparing the brunch, Aunt Kathy opened gifts :). This one below was from my mom to her; it's a purse by Natty {design&fashion}! PLEASE, check out Natalie's facebook page for her business where you can view her incredible purses for sale!! Each one she makes is unique, handmade, and has a precious name :D. I personally own one ("Trolley car to St. Louis" :D ) and it's sturdy and adorable :). Another side of it is that Natalie has Cardiomyopathy and is in need of a heart transplant; she is only 20 years old. Please, pray that God would provide a new heart for her!

This particular purse is "Wind in the wheat-field" and Aunt Kathy LOVED it!

Here are de seesters :). Oh, and you may notice both of them are wearing button bracelets created by Allix B.! Mom designed Aunt Katy's bracelet herself and Allix put it together :D. That was another birthday gift to Aunt Kathy which she also loved :).

Mother and daughter :).

Hehe :D. Thanks again, Amanda, for making such a delicious brunch for us!

It was a nice time :).

With a smile,

I am so impressed with your pictures these days. Especially here, just interesting and awesome perspectives on things like the table setting and the skillet of food, and the purse, etc. You are so creative and getting more and more individual in your style ;) Keep up the awesome work, friend

Looks like a lot of fun! Beautiful photography {as usual!}. And those button bracelets are adorable! May I ask a question-how do you add your watermark to each of your photos? I am trying to find a easy way to add it to all of my blog photos.
