These photos are AMAZING! You have such a beautiful family.

I have four cousins that I grew up with on my mom's side and many more on my dad's side that I don't get to see often. Cousins are wonderful!

Those pictures are absolutely beautiful and so precious!
It is a blessing to have a close-knit family. You captured the love, and happiness so well with your camera.

Fantastic to have a large family near by.
I come from a huge family and have so many cousins I have no idea how many....they are scattered across the USA!
Happy ABC Wednesday.

I love my family, too! I have 26 cousins spread out all over the country. And that's just 1st cousins!

My Mom is from a VERY large family. She had 57 1st cousins:)

Marilyn said...

How wonderful! You have a great family. I only have 1 cousin and she is younger than my oldest son. My sons each have 11 cousins of varying ages. My grandsons have 5-6 cousins depending on which family they belong to. I missed out on cousins and make sure my little ones get to know and enjoy theirs. Looks like Kaishon gets to enjoy his too. That is so great.

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic photos and, yes, your family is amazing and beautiful! How lucky those of who have big, beautiful families are! Just attended a family reunion of my own, so this did strike a chord!

Thanks for sharing the love and the beauty of your family!

Fabulous photos of your fabulous family!!! Thank you for sharing them with us!

smiles4u said...

Amazing! Just looking at these pictures brought tears to my eyes. There is something about smiles and eyes and expressions that capture my heart. You do a magnificant job of capturing them. I wish with all my heart that you lived close so that I could hire you to capture some for me. I look at these pictures and they made me smile and make me thankful that you have such blessings in your life. Isn't it amazing that in this big huge world of ours, we can stop and look at pictures of people we have never met or seen before and still have them affect us in such a way that it brings tears? Beautiful and amazing!

Gorgeousness!

Liz said...

Great pictures! I'm not sure how many cousins I have. I've never taken the time to count. Maybe around 50 if you count seconds. Both my parents came from large families.

Martha in PA said...

Fabulous photos. Hmm cousins, let's see, some I have never met, they lived in New Mexico. 17 cousins.

jay said...

Wow, you are SO good at portraits! I suppose that comes of taking eleventy-million photos every week! LOL!

Lovely, lovely children - and the other relatives don't look half bad, either!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

Roger Owen Green said...

My wife has about 30 first cousins, mostly on her mother's side (her mom had seven siblings). I have zero; my parents were both only children.


Lovely photos.

Ragan said...

You seriously only have 14 cousins? Total??? I have over 50 on each side! And that's first cousins alone. My mom and dad both came from families of 10 kids.

a H.I.T. said...

What beautiful photos. My cousins and I were always close growing up. Now that we're adults, it's hard staying close with all of them, but we try.

Jendi said...

That is a lot of pictures! And all so well taken.
Love the Burns quote at the end. :)

Thanks for commenting on my food picture.

mimi said...

Ok, you are making me really want to buy a new camera...and get you to teach me how to take such great pictures! seriously!
