The 71st Annual Poteet Strawberry Festival Parade | Where Strawberries & Memories Grow!

If you have followed me on Instagram, you’ll know that one of my passions is to support or local hometown and all it’s endeavors. Whether it’s from shopping small, fundraising for our local church needs, or our Growers & Ranchmen I love to see our hometown thrive and I want to continue this legacy through my family and further generations to come.

This past weekend we took our son Parker to his first ever, Poteet Strawberry Festival Parade. HE LOVED it! If you know my child, he does not sit still (like his Mama) and wants to be a part of everything.  So with that being said, It was a HUGE surprise to see him sit in my Mom’s lap and stare in AMAZEMENT at the parade for almost 2 hours. Crazy! I know!

The parade was opened by the honorary Grand Marshall and infamous Texas Couple, Bob & Kelly Phillips from ‘Texas Country Reporter’. If you haven’t ever tuned in, it’s appears on our local Kens 5 channel at 9 am on Sundays. I use to watch this when we would come back from 7 AM mass. The show is neat as it features state infamous items and features entrepreneurs from cattlemen, black smiths, to everything in between.

But before the Parade started we met up with our hometown friends. Guys, the kids were too busy waiting for the parade the last thing they wanted was a picture! Ha! Deep down they were too excited and were beyond ready for the event to start!

One little turkey found the tractor in our local mechanic shop within minutes of arriving. Yep! He is a little country boy through and through!

Nana & Popo are here! Yay! They sure love their little “Buddy Boy!”

Some of my Mom’s amigos, I haven’t seen these guys in a while, such sweet ladies! Special thanks to Kim for letting us sit at their shop in town!

EXCITED for the Parade to start!

YAY! Freckles is here the official Mascot of our Poteet Strawberry Festival!

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! Day of you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband (I love saying “husband”) away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

"I was so lucky to have Jessica as my photographer. I am absolutely thrilled with my engagement and wedding photos. The first time I spoke to her on the phone, I immediately liked her. It was important to me for me to actually LIKE my photographer because you really do spend a lot of time with them on one of the most important days in your life. The reason it is so important to be comfortable around them is because IT WILL show in your face if you’re not. My husband and I really enjoyed our photoshoots with Jessica. It can be kinda awkward to take a lot of photos but she is so funny and goofy that she kept both of us laughing and relaxed. As for the photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, these are the nicest pictures anyone has taken of me. The pictures are light, bright, and airy. I feel like a beautiful bride when I look at them. They are so nice in fact, that the company that made my wedding dress, Jasmine Bridal, has featured my photos several times! Jessica is also a really creative person and will find ways to make your photos look amazing. During our wedding reception, I was kinda tired after a LONG day but she had a great idea to do these romantic night time shots. I am SO GLAD I decided to do them. They are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to believe it's me and my husband! Like, that’s us?? She made us look SO GOOD! And really, that’s all you want. You want to love your pictures and be happy with them because they are an investment. I know that I’ll look at these photos many years from now and still enjoy them - that’s how happy I am with them."

"I can not express how much I love our maternity pictures that Jessica took for us! Not only was she patient, but she also made it super easy to relax and have fun, which in turn, ended up giving us amazing photos and memories for a lifetime time to come. Jessica is such a sweet, kind soul and is sure to provide you with years of lasting memories of your family and life's most important milestones!! Thank you Jessica."
