• hello and welcome!

    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Benji + Erica | Maternity

It was great to spend time with this happy, loving couple again!  Benji has a sweet, effortless way of being able to get the most beautiful smile from his expecting wife.  We ended up shooting closer to Erica’s due date as a result of the weather but she amazed me!!  There’s a lucky little one to soon to arrive into their beautiful new home but more so into the loving arms of this wonderful couple.  You can tell already their hearts have been won!  I will be thinking of you guys, hope all goes well and look forward to hearing your news!!

Daysha - Love these! such cute pics to remember this time.

Littlejohn family | Midale, Sk

I adore this beautiful family of 4!!  It always does my heart good to be around them.  They have a happiness in being together and share it with all who enter their lives.  A dear friend that inspires in so many ways with the kindest, caring heart, a great guy that loves her deeply and sweet children that they are doing a wonderful job of raising.  Their lives are busy with businesses and an organic farm but it’s very evident that family comes first and they have a beautiful connection and closeness.  Thank you for having me capture your amazing family again!  I can still hear the laughter and giggles and it warms my heart!!  We started in their garden that is producing some of the largest zucchinis I’ve seen this year.  I want to try this brownies recipe my sister found!

Vancouver Island | Spring Roadtrip

Even when the destination is 2200 kms away there is something that feels so great about getting in the car and starting the journey!  For us anyhow, I know not everyone enjoys a long roadtrip.  We love them!!  Especially driving thru the mountains, choosing roads we have never been on before, stopping to explore along the way, visiting relatives and friends and soaking in all the beautiful scenery.  We knew our general timeline but for the most part it was ‘where the wind blew us’.  We were glad we were spontaneous because it brought opportunities that we wouldn’t have had if our days were too scheduled ahead of time.  It was our style of adventure.  Come along for the highlights of our time on the westcoast and pretty places between here and there!

We crossed over to Nanaimo then went to stay with friends at a beautiful property on Sproat Lake.  The mornings were amazingly peaceful!

We spent a day exploring Ucluelet and Tofino.  The locals said we were really lucky to get hot weather and the surfers didn’t even need booties that day.

We stopped numerous times to hike, breath in the fresh rainforest air and were amazed by the size of the trees.  The Cathedral Grove really is a forest of giant trees including the largest tree in the park which is a Douglas Fir standing 76m high and 9m around.  It’s humongous!

One of our favorite parts was from Whistler to Lillooet.  Someday we hope to spend longer driving thru this area.  It’s rugged and incredibly breathtaking.

Spending a few days in the Okanagan with cousins was a blast!  They took us on an evening hike, morning run, to yoga and on a winery tour.

Mac and Joanne | Graduation Best Friends

There was a second part to the graduation shoot on this stunning summer evening.  I was in my glory!  Not just one gorgeous graduate but two!  These sweet gals are best friends.  Attached at the hip I’ve heard.  So it was fun to capture them together, the giggles, inside jokes and excitement of what their futures hold.  Although I imagine it will be a little sad as they head for different cities in a couple weeks.  One to study nursing and the other fashion design.  How fitting for brilliant girls that are caring and creative.  Both of them wore homemade dresses of their own design and I loved their originality as I wandered thru the school back on grad day.  With beautiful sunshine surrounding us, it was wonderful to capture their friendship and beauty on the inside and out!!

Baby Sawyer

This handsome baby boy that arrived mid-June brings our niece + nephew count up to 17!!  We first met him when he was 3 weeks old.  It was such a beautiful, sunny evening we took baby brother outside along with his siblings for some photos.  There is usually a line-up to hold the baby and he is well loved and adored by all!!  He is now part of a busy, fun family and household, this adorable little guy will never be short of entertainment!
