    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

There have been numerous times, whether driving thru a city or in the country, I have wished to have a client along that could hop out and be photographed in the intriguing location or beautiful light that happens to be in that place at that time.  There are many places around the globe I still think about and I’m always location scouting.  I had somewhat of a plan for this family’s session but also knew we were driving from the west side of Edmonton into downtown.  So we decided the three of us would be on the lookout for any locations that suited the style we had in mind for their shoot.  It was a blast!!!  They were a great family to do this with, fun loving and spontaneous.  The energy in the truck and at each place we stopped was invigorating!  We found amazing places, colorful and unique.  They are wonderful friends that we always have an amazing time with and laugh non-stop.  It was so much fun!!

Janie - It hurts my heart to look at these pics. I love these pics…because you captured “us”. One of the biggest reasons I fell in love with Slade was because he made me laugh…thanks for helping me see it all over again. The evening was lovely…even the greasy Red Lobster indulgence right after. Love you sweet friend.

It was a photo session with these 3 that initially spurred my trip up to Edmonton.  It was wonderful to have other past clients that thought it would be a nice time of year for photos too!

Having photographed this beautiful mother and handsome son a couple times before it was lovely having this great guy that fills a special place in their lives there to capture the bond they have.  We wandered around Whitemud Park, playing in colorful leaves and then felt like we stepped into a different place walking out onto the beach by the river.  Skipping rocks and chasing birds, this energetic boy kept us entertained with his goofiness and laughter.  The scenic Edmonton fall surroundings complimented their happy, loving personalities and connection!

What a fun time it was to be with this great family!!  For their last shoot we had beautiful sunshine but this time there was not a speck of sunlight and it was a chilly 6 or 7 degrees in Edmonton.  They were definitely all champs.  They lit up the overcast day with their love and cheerful smiles!  They told me when we were planning that their kids insist on “family” dates.  You can tell they make time for family fun and enjoy being together.  The kids are all taking violin lessons now so I loved that they brought along their violins!  Their photo session was a lovely mix of urban and natural.  Starting off in the Old Strathcona farmers market area and then to a beautiful treed area along the riverbank just a few blocks away.  It was perfectly suited to their lifestyle and personalities.  We explored some really neat places and I appreciated their enthusiasm immensely!!

It was wonderful to see this happy, lively family again!!  I drove away after each session in Edmonton with a big smile and happy heart.  It was fun to shoot in new locations and all my clients were fantastic to work with!  Monica scouted out a very beautiful park in the river valley that offered so much fall beauty and a variety of backdrops.  The timing thankfully worked out very well for having pretty fall colors.  It was a really great spot to explore with their beautiful family!  The kids did amazing and are adorable.  Their cute expressions, curiosity and sweet smiles.  They steal your heart with their charming ways!!
