    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.

Peter + Lyndsey | Maternity

After corresponding with Lyndsey over the past couple months it was great to meet them and they were super sweet to photograph.  Even in the incredibly strong wind they took it all in stride.  The kind of wind that seems to come from multiple directions and doesn’t allow much shelter.  I’m nervous to postpone a maternity shoot by even a day due to rainy + windy weather after doing that recently and the baby decided that nite to make his appearance!!  We were thrilled the rain held off as we explored a small rural town.  It was a wonderful time filled with their love for one another and excitement to welcome this little one into their lives.  As the wind blew they cuddled in closer, smiling and showing gentle affection.

Thank you Peter and Lyndsey for having me document this special, exciting time!  I’m excited that you are now moved to your new home and can make your final preparations for baby’s arrival!!

Prairie Crocuses

A sure sign of spring on the prairies!  Beautiful, delicate prairie crocuses that are the first plant to bloom.  I have seen some of these pretty violet colored flowers in vases this past week but hadn’t been out in a pasture to see some for myself yet.  So it was great when an offer came yesterday to be picked up to go on a crocus hunt!  Seeing just a few from the road we walked into the pasture to then realize how many little crocuses there were.  Like little hidden gems in the dry grass with their pretty petals, in a variation of light to darker violet, and vibrant yellow centres.

Our Farmstead Scene | New Animals

We’ve been talking and planning for a while about raising some lambs.  Our adventure into sheep started on the weekend with 6 ewes and their adorable lambs, of which 8 are twins.  I was bursting with excitement as we worked with the couple we love dearly and are in their 80’s to get our animals ready to bring home.  Sorting the lambs, docking tails and tagging them.  We were sure glad to have our parents there to help us out too!

We are thoroughly enjoying taking care of and spending time this week with these gentle-natured animals and watching the playful lambs.  Yesterday morning started off with finding our bottle-fed orphan lamb no longer alive.  Feeling really sad and brokenhearted, I took my camera out to the sheep pen and photographed our colorful flock.  The little lambs are so curious and love to climb, going right into the hay feeder and a couple of them jump around like they are part goat.  They are neat and intelligent animals.  I am loving to walk outside and hear a ewe or lamb bleating from the barn.

We also brought home laying hens and a rooster so it was a mad panic last week getting our chicken coop somewhat ready and we have more work to do yet.  They seem happy in their new home and it’s wonderful going out to collect fresh eggs!

Kate | Las Vegas

It’s wonderful to have a photographer friend with connections in places like Las Vegas for when we meet up there!  It was fun to all work together and make a photo shoot happen on short notice.  The credit definitely goes to Melissa and Kate!  I felt lucky to photograph this gorgeous gal alongside Melissa and Brandi.  Kate was super sweet to give us creative freedom and put up with the chilly wind and 3 photographers snapping her portraits.  She started off in this pretty patterned dress she handmade.  Kate radiated such grace and beauty.  It’s no wonder she was turning heads everywhere we walked!!
