    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.

Kohonick family session

Once again this family was exceptional to photograph!!  It’s wonderful to catch up with them each year and I enjoy their personalities all the more as I get to know them better!  Their typically fall family photos became snowy, winter ones this year during a short cold snap in November that we returned home from our vacation to.  They were game to brave the elements!  As the weather changes, it’s very helpful to dress in layers along with having blankets and cute toques that add a cozy feel.  Hopping in the vehicle for a warmup part way through was just the ticket to feel like it warmed up about 5 degrees and we finished up with adorable photos on the toboggan!  Enjoy these sweet moments of their beautiful family!!

Oh I love these happy smiles and the beautiful people behind them!!  The fall went by in a busy blur.  So they considered a snowy, winter family photo but a week before Christmas when schedules aligned in the daylight we only had bare ground and chilly air.  We were so surprised to wake up the following morning to a bit of fresh snow – that was not in the forecast!  Although our weather is unpredictable we can always count on a wonderful visit and enjoyable time with their family!

Blu | Newborn Lifestyle Photography

This adorable baby boy is growing up quickly from when we were there and took these photos 6 weeks ago!  Our precious, newest nephew!!!  We weren’t sure how things were going to work out when we booked a few days in Vancouver on the way home from our anniversary trip to Rarotonga as you never know when a little one will actually arrive.  But it worked out perfectly as Blu was a few days old and they were getting settled in at home.

We were excited to meet him, just a tiny bundle and so precious!!  He’s surrounded by heaps of love and is a delightful addition to our family.  Having a few days with them and being the photographer auntie, there were a lot of photos taken and he was a darling baby model!  We really enjoyed our visit with their little family.  Our few days zipped by so quick.  I’m excited for more snuggles and to see this adorable nephew again in January!  We love sweet baby Blu!

Shauna - Thank you Aunty Jenelle for absolutely beautiful memories & keepsakes of sweet baby Blu! The timing of your visit was perfect to capture his sweet newborn phase and I can’t wait to capture so many more of his milestones. We are sure lucky to have such a talented aunty to help us ❤️💙

Shuswap Houseboating | British Columbia Roadtrip

At the end of a busy summer it was perfectly timed to go on a roadtrip out to the Shuswap Lake and houseboat with friends of ours.  The busy tourist season was over and the lake was fairly quiet.  We pretty much had the entire beaches to ourselves where we spent the first couple nites.  There were wildfires raging in close proximity and each day the smoke settled in lower and thicker.  It was our first time houseboating and even though the weather wasn’t ideal as the sun was filtered by the heavy smoke, we had a really great time!  Each morning we went on a hike for a few hours and it felt refreshing to jump off the boat when we got back and then we’d usually all end up in the hot tub.  It really was the people we were with on the boat that made this trip enjoyable!!  They are friends we don’t see as often as we’d like but glad for a couple memorable times together this summer!  We covered a fair bit of the lake cruising along and went up to the ends of both the Anstey and Seymour arms.  Our view was more closed in but it was still very beautiful and felt peaceful on the water in good company!!

The next spot we beached our houseboat was where we could hike to Albas Falls.  This hike was amazing, so many beautiful waterfalls along the trail that goes up one side of the creek and back on the other.

Once we got to back to Revelstoke we decided to add in a little extra adventure and crossed on the Galena-Horseshoe Bay ferry to enjoy a soak at Halcyon Hot Springs.  A man working on the ferry said it was the smokiest day of the summer and the visibility really was minimal so we missed seeing the typically very scenic view on the crossing.  There’s something about the smokey haze that is neat too but felt bad for everyone affected by the fires this summer in BC!

We tented in the rain at Golden and there’s something about mountain air that makes for a good sleep!

Other stops as we made our way back to Banff were Natural Bridge and Emerald Lake Lodge.  I have wanted to go to Emerald Lake for a long time and it met my expectations!  The color of the lake is unreal and someday we want to go back and stay in this cute cabin that we picked out!!  It’s on my wish list to photograph a wedding here, how amazing would that be?!

It’s well worth the drive to go further up the road to Takakkaw Falls!  In Cree the meaning is ‘it is magnificent’.  It really is and one of the highest waterfalls in Canada.

We stopped in Banff for lunch and were amazed again at the beautiful Banff Springs Hotel considering it was 1888 when the hotel opened.

We felt lucky to be invited along on the houseboating trip and we love spending time in beautiful British Columbia!!!

Flower Mandalas

Sometimes it’s just fun to play and be creative with something completely fresh and new!  I got these colourful, bright flowers from Brady’s Flowers and only had a short amount of time one weekend but I hope to try this again sometime soon!  Who wants to join me?!  I’ve already been scheming about a winter theme mandala.  It’s fun when there’s a variety of color, texture and sizes to make patterns.  Plus they smell so nice too!

Also for all graduation sessions booked by January 31, 2018 I will be including a corsage or boutonniere from Brady’s Flowers.

Have a lovely weekend!
