    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.

Danyal + Erum | Mykonos, Greece honeymoon

A Greece honeymoon sure sounds nice doesn’t it?!  That’s what this sweet, happy couple did!  It was amazing meeting them in Mykonos and doing a sunset photo shoot.  They were happy, relaxed and adorable together!  Just as you’d expect with newlyweds enjoying their honeymoon in a beautiful destination.  I was impressed how at ease they were in front of the camera.

It was fun to hear about the places they enjoyed on their Greece honeymoon and they have definitely piqued my interest to visit Crete someday.  It ranked high on their list of the islands they explored!  We had a short time together but they left a wonderful impression as we laughed along the streets of Mykonos and watched the sunset by the windmills.  I loved having the windmills as a backdrop as they’re a unique and prominent landmark on the island of Mykonos.  This shoot was delightful and I feel their happiness really shows.  I enjoyed capturing these memories for a couple that is truly in love.  Maybe someday in the future our paths will cross again!  The world definitely gets smaller as a person travels.

Tina | island of Mykonos, Greece

This is the first of several posts about my trip in the spring to Europe which included spending a few days on the island of Mykonos, Greece.  A beautiful, scenic island in the Cyclades group that I had an incredible time exploring.  I walked and walked and also rented a quad one day to see more.  The main town is really cute with white + blue buildings lining the streets.  Those iconic Greek colors.  The blues matching the Aegean Sea that surrounds this very windy island.

I was one of the first to get on the ferry in Piraeus.  It was the morning after the film photography workshop which was the reason I travelled to Greece.  A lovely young lady happened to sit next to me.  We struck up a conversation finding out that Tina was going to Mykonos temporarily for work.  She was quickly very likeable.  One of the greatest parts of world travel is meeting people and hearing their stories.  People have asked how I could go on this trip alone.  It isn’t my first choice but it’s wonderful to meet people and have conversations that don’t maybe happen the same as when I’m travelling with my husband, family or friends.

Throughout my time in Mykonos I would stop by Kayak Ice Cream where Tina was working that week.  If you go to the island of Mykonos you must try their mango sorbet and frozen yogurt!  I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this gorgeous gal and loved every minute of the shoot!!  Tina has a beautiful, confident way of carrying herself and was amazing to have in front of the camera.  There’s something wonderful when thousands of miles away from home to connect with a stranger that quickly becomes a friend!  I’m glad our paths crossed and felt so inspired photographing such a beauty in these unique surroundings!

Tristin | Weyburn Graduation

On Weyburn graduation day I met up with this wonderful family at the park in the hot sunshine.  Having worked with their family for each of the children’s graduation photos it feels like the younger brother from the previous grad sessions became the graduate rather quickly.  Time goes by so fast but I know as the kid that looks forward to these big life moments they don’t always feel like they come soon enough.  I’m appreciative to have captured each of these milestones for their family and the opportunity to reconnect each time.  It was a fun day celebrating this accomplishment and it was nice to capture the excitement and laughter of this happy graduate.  Along with his parents, sisters and grandparents that are so proud of him!  We carried on with our tradition of family members kissing Tristan on the cheek and it brought out the most laughter!!

Congratulations Tristan!  I hope you’ve had an enjoyable summer and wish you all the best in the future!

Donald/McChesney | Kelvington extended family photography

I was glad of their enthusiasm for this Kelvington extended family session.  The weather was cooler than usual and with multiple shoots that day, I really hoped when the rainy morning was over that the rain was definitely over for the day.  I knew this family when I was young and we’d spend time around Kelvington visiting my grandparents and relatives.  That was many years ago and their family has grown with marriages and children so it was really nice to get reacquainted and spend time on their farms.  Being able to photograph my clients on their home property is always preferred as it’s their life, their story and where they seem to be most comfortable.  It’s a good thing to feel at home when you are at home and it shows in the photographs.

Along with the wonderful couples and children, were many animals.  Well mannered horses including a new colt, the cutest pet pigs and a whole herd of friendly cattle.  I didn’t even try to count the number of heartbeats in front of my camera that day!  The kids all chose an interest of theirs for the individual photos which meant starting off at the Kelvington swimming pool with one son that works there as a lifeguard and mostly included horses.  Then we headed over to a pasture of yearlings to meet the rest of their family.  I certainly appreciate people that embrace having me capture their family time even if the weather is not ideal and have a sense of humor to make the time together enjoyable!  Thank you all for your kindness, I had a great day photographing around Kelvington!

Tanesha | Kelvington Graduation

On Kelvington graduation day I pulled up to a beautiful home in the country.  You actually feel like you’re arriving to a golf club with the landscaping of their yard.  It looks amazing!!  Inside the house their family was busy getting ready for a weekend of celebrating graduation and outside it was a downpour (insert cringe but hopeful feelings!).  The forecast showed it was an early morning rain so we all felt it would stop shortly.  After scouting around their yard and rain still falling, not wanting to resort to an indoor shoot although they have a lovely house, I appreciated their hospitality as we waited.  I was glancing out the window very regularly while working on my laptop.  Hoping the weather would clear as this sweet graduate really wanted photos with her horses.

We were incredibly glad after lunch when the weather changed in our favor!  A big shout out to her sister for all the effort to put blankets on the horses to keep them dry while it was raining then get them ready for photos in short order.  Along with creating a perfectly coordinating pink halter.  It all looked so pretty surrounded by the vibrant, fresh greenery!  We even managed to keep Tanesha’s pretty, light pink dress quite clean as we headed out around the yard.  I’m grateful when travelling for sessions like this when everything works out – even if the start time gets pushed back a bit.  It was an enjoyable time getting to know their wonderful family better!!

Congratulations Tanesha, I hope you’ve had a fantastic summer and wish you all the best!!  Thank you for choosing me to capture these memories of an exciting milestone!
