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.


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... 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.
