• hello and welcome!

    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

Kailey + Jaclyn | Alida, Sk Engagement

On Christmas Day just as Jaclyn thought all the presents had been given, Kailey said there was one more gift and was down on one knee to propose! It has been great over the last few years getting to know Jaclyn a bit as her amazing sister is our neighbour.  With similar personalities these are great gals to be around with such a cheerful, fun and high-spirited way about them.  She’s won the heart of her Harley-Davidson loving guy!  I travelled over to Kailey + Jaclyn’s beautiful property near Alida for their engagement session and loved their locations.  The timing worked out really well as the wind slowed, the sun peeked out now + again and a pink blossoming bush was gorgeous in full bloom!  I had a lot of fun capturing their happiness, excitement and care for one another which is sometimes shown in a fun, goofy way.  Ending at the Alameda Dam was the perfect touch as they are planning a destination wedding on the beach!!

Congratulations Kailey + Jaclyn, thanks for having me photograph your engagement photos!!  Have a wonderful, fun long weekend!

Marcy Betts - Absolutely fantastic! You have captured these 2 perfectly…. As Mother of Kailey, you have brought tears of joy to these eyes.

Jamie

It was really fun to have my twin cousins visit last week!  We don’t get to see them all that often and they are really great kids.  We had lots of laughs!!  It was so good to catch up and spend parts of a few days together.  While her brother was busy with training, Jamie wanted to come see our farm and the new baby lambs.  We also took a few photos in our barn loft on this warm, sunny evening.  I always love photographing up there with the light filtering through the gapping boards and missing shakes.  Add in this beautiful, loveable gal and we had a fun, quick shoot!  We hope you’ll come back to visit again soon!!

These Prairie Skies – April

Each month I plan to share a little of a personal project I am doing in 2016.  One of the best things about living in the country on the Saskatchewan prairies is our view of these incredible skies!  Instead of only getting a shot on my iPhone I am making a conscious effort this year to capture the gorgeous, colourful, lively skies with my professional camera.  I plan to create a photo book with a collection of favorite images at the end of the year.  So at the end of each month or beginning of the next I will share a few favorite captures from that month.  Sharing here will also hold me accountable and help to keep me consistent throughout the year!

The days have quickly lengthened and it’s becoming harder to catch the sunrises even when we are quite early risers.  I love this time of year and would happily take these lengths of day all year long!  Other than working until the sun is down and then heading in to make dinner has started so we need to find a better evening schedule.  It’s hard to beat being outside with a wide open view of the prairies as the sun goes down.  After a couple stretches of cloudy days in there I always enjoy white clouds against the blue sky.  The range of colors in the sky is always amazing!

Daysha - That last one!! wow

Bennett (and brothers) | 1 Year

A few weeks ago, on this handsome little guy’s first birthday, we met up to photograph this fun yet bittersweet stage for his wonderful Mama.  Being the most easy going, content and sweet baby, it has been fun over the year seeing the changes and growth each time we are together.  He was sure to make me work at winning over his trust this time however.  Having amazing, patient parents to ease little ones into it and help bring out adorable smiles with comforting words, gentle cuddles and silly songs is greatly appreciated!  I’m grateful for a friendship that has formed with the mother of these 3 handsome boys since first meeting to photograph her oldest son.  Pretty special to capture each of them at this same stage.  Our times together are always enjoyable!!
