    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.

Spetses Villa Wedding | Greece Wedding

A year ago I was packing my bags and making final preparations to head off to Europe for a film photography workshop in Greece.  Film photography has piqued my interest for a few years now so it was an incredible opportunity to learn, shoot film, make new photographer friends and explore a new part of the world for me.  This villa wedding was the first shoot at the Phos Workshop and it was amazing!

There was a creative, fabulous team of vendors that worked together and pulled off this gorgeous wedding shoot.  An intimate ceremony space was created inside the historic stone villa followed by an outdoor reception in the gardens.  It’s the kind of place that leaves one wishing to spend more than a few hours in the pretty surroundings.  There were so many beautiful details and the florals and stationery were perfectly suited to the setting.  The gorgeous couple looked fabulous and I especially love the photo of them in front of the vine rimmed doorway!

Villa Lifestyle Session | Spetses, Greece

It’s an overcast, cool afternoon here so let’s keep cozy inside with this beautiful stone villa lifestyle session.  The happiness of this couple will be today’s sunshine!  They absolutely radiated love and joy!!  We had the incredible opportunity to shoot in a historic villa while on the beautiful island of Spetses, Greece.  A cuddly, fun session that was mostly scripted by the happy and so-in-love couple.  These two are really comfortable together and super playful which meant capturing genuine moments as they unfolded.

Indoor sessions work really well for an intimate lifestyle session like this and also this time of year when the outdoor scenery between seasons is not as appealing.  Most of all, I adore capturing people in a place where they are most comfortable and feel at home.  Whether that’s in their home, a favorite location, indoors or out.  Often that feeling comes from being with the one(s) they love most!!  The way this sweet couple brings out gorgeous smiles in one another is adorable!  They truly are at home in one another’s arms.

Spring Blossoms | Best Friends in Prague

Being surrounded by spring blossoms in April was a wonderful treat!  I met up with these beautiful gals that are from the Ukraine at a park in Prague.  They are best friends and were spending a few days together exploring the city.  The park was filled with pretty spring blossoms.  Magnolia and cherry trees along with numerous others in full bloom.  It was wonderful!!  With a fragrance that made me want to sit in the park and enjoy the sunshine all afternoon.

Happy first day of spring!  Although it’ll be a bit of a wait for green grass and pink blossoms here, the snow is quickly melting and the warmth in the sun is lovely!  As are the lengthening days!!

Francis + Sarah and family | Weyburn Holiday Session

This was another wonderful, cozy Weyburn holiday session!  Their family had recently grown with the addition of this sweet baby boy.  It’s easy to see how much love welcomes him into their family!!  There were lots of snuggles and sweet moments.  Their family time is cherished!  At the end of the session there was a request that I would go grocery shopping with them.  Kids are adorable and I would definitely spend more time with their fun, loving family.

Sarah is the owner of Brady’s Flowers and I always appreciate working with her on shoots like this.  The winter greenery from her shop was a nice addition to surrounding of the heritage house.  I’m excited for collaborations that are in the works for this coming spring!
