    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.

Kleppen | Plentywood family photography

When we head south of the border, there is a Plentywood family that we always love to visit!  I’d love to be back there today to celebrate this beautiful mama and friend’s birthday.  The closest I’ll get to visiting them today is by revisiting their fall family photos and I’m excited to share them here!  It was really fun to photograph their family again and I like the adventures that come with it!!  The golden grasses and yellow leaves were spectacular.  We found a little pocket of green for a backdrop in a nice, sheltered area too.  Then headed to my favorite place close to where they live.  One of the most scenic pastures I’ve been in and although I’ve shot here multiple times we still find new, pretty surroundings.  As well as ideas for next time!  Everything was so beautiful and they looked fantastic!  We pretty much shot until the last bit of light left and I had to hustle back to our border crossing before it closed.  Driving back with a big smile on my face and gratitude in my heart for wonderful friends + clients and capturing special memories!!

Matt + Melissa engagement session | Oungre Park

On what was one of the hottest days of the summer, I headed to the Oungre Park for an early morning engagement session with this newly engaged couple.  One of those days that you had to beat the 40 degree heat and there wasn’t any cool down in the evenings.  It sure wasn’t a surprise after photographing Matt + Melissa last fall with Matt’s daughters to hear these two were engaged.  I am thrilled for them as you can see how deeply they care about one another and the excitement they have as they look forward to their marriage.  Taking photos very soon after the proposal was important to capture the fresh emotions.  It easy to do when they are easily absorbed with one another.  Happily hugging, kissing and being close.  At the place where they will marry.  I had a couple of little assistants as they were enjoying a family camping weekend at Oungre Park so we got a few family photos as well.  Since it is a union that affects all of their lives it was fitting and special.  It was adorable to hear the girls’ excitement as well for a very special day in July.  Seeing sneak peeks of what they’re planning for their summer wedding has been fun and I’m excited to document that special day at the Oungre Regional Park too.

Congratulations Matt + Melissa!  The countdown is on to your wedding celebration in July and I’m certain it will be a very happy day!!

Shultz | Siblings and Spouses

On a hot summer afternoon I headed north to the Shultz farm.  Being currently spread out as far as Oregon and Southeast Asia, it was 4 years since these siblings had the opportunity to be together.  So it was special they were able to enjoy time together over a few weeks in the summer!!  Including this beautiful evening that I had the privilege to photograph them!  They are a wonderful group of people to be with and amaze me how great they look for their years!!

This was a very meaningful location.  The farm where they were raised.  As well as the farm where the youngest of these siblings lives with his wife and also raised their family.  There was thoughtful consideration for backdrops that were reminiscent of their childhood days and using those areas of the yard with the prairie surroundings.  I enjoyed hearing some stories from their growing up years and witnessing the laughter of such memories!  It really was a golden evening with the canola fields in bloom and warm sunshine.  Most of all because of the fantastic people in these photos!!

Sharon - Lovely pics and such a beautiful setting with beautiful people! Really special for me to see as Fillmore is where my Dad was born and this summer we laid him to rest in Kelvington. Last year Dale told me a lot of stories of the early Fillmore days with my relatives so I was pretty thrilled to find this post!! Loving all your blog posts and your beautiful captures!

Marion Galbraith Lyon - Beautiful people, beautiful setting! I understand the thrill of times like this when spread so far apart. Time does not erase the beauty of character seen in people. My old friends, thanks😊

Tanner + Christina | Weyburn engagement

As this gorgeous couple gets married tomorrow afternoon I’m skipping ahead in my blogging line up to share their Weyburn engagement session.  They are just a day away from saying “I do” and being husband and wife!!  We are looking forward to celebrating their love and photographing their life commitment to one another!  They are a very sweet couple!!  We’ve enjoyed Tanner living back in Weyburn the past couple years to see them around this area more regularly and get to know Christina better.  Tanner has a gentle, kind heart and manner and I feel the same about this beautiful lady.

Although we were expecting it to be a fall wedding there seems to be a conflict of seasons with the fresh snowfall.  This weather has been crazy – and an (tough) adjustment!  I always say as the temperatures dip and the weather cools that it’s all the more reason to cuddle in close.  Regardless it is going to be a great Thanksgiving weekend and a beautiful wedding day!  We’ll think back to the summer heat on the day of their engagement session.  The smokey pink sky and warm sunshine was lovely.  We started off at the classy, historic Eaglesham house in Weyburn then headed out to Tanner’s parents property by the river.  A nice yard I’ve enjoyed photographing in many times due to the fact it’s been my fun, delightful relatives in front of the camera.  Enjoy this Weyburn engagement session and their happiness as they anticipate what tomorrow is all about!

Congratulations Tanner + Christina – we’ll be telling you that again very soon!!

Pederson Extended Family | Tribune

Oh the many fun memories from this summer!!!  At the beginning and then the end of the same week I photographed the twin Pederson brothers with their families.  This extended family session was on my calendar for months in advance.  A day of the summer I was really looking forward to.  It was a special weekend as this couple/parents/grandparents celebrated their 40th anniversary.  The beginning of where their wonderful family began and it’s lovely to capture milestones like this.  Since I last photographed them all together a few more boys have been added!  The grandchildren count has doubled and they are sweet, adorable and fun kids!!

Extended family sessions are busy but some of my favorite shoots to capture the many connections and family dynamic.  As well there’s heaps of variety with a large group and locations like this family chose at and near their farms.  I love color and their outfits were fun and well chosen for the summer scenery.  The crops were pretty much at peak vibrancy.  It was a hot, hot summer day.  I sure like to think about the sweltering heat of those days as snow falls outside my office window today.  Enjoy the summer views and very enjoyable family in places that have meaning in their lives.  Most of all, happy to be together and to celebrate the wonderful love that started over 40 years ago!
