    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

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!!

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!

Pederson Extended Family | Mainprize Lake

There’s many happy, fun memories and feelings looking back at this extended family session at Mainprize Lake!  They were such a wonderful bunch to spend time with and photograph!!  We met up at the beginning of their family reunion week so it was a great way to start off their time together at the lake.  Going through these photos again I’m longing for hot, sunny summer days like this.  There’s so many reasons that summer is the best and my favorite season of the year!

There are connections for their family to Mainprize Lake and being as many of them were staying there it was a meaningful location that worked well.  Everyone was amazing to work with!  The kids are adorable and did so well including the newest family member.  A very new, sweet baby girl.  As such a large group and on a hot day, they impressed me with how well the shoot went!  It was really special and enjoyable to capture their beautiful family.  Of course heading to the beach towards the end of our time together was a great way to cool down and have fun splashing in the water.  We had the beach to ourselves and the light was beautiful.  Summer zips by as do the years so being asked to preserve fleeting moments with photographs is an honor!  I’m pretty sure I smiled the whole drive home and felt grateful for the wonderful people that photography connects me to!!

Next week I plan to share this Dad/Grampa’s twin brother + family that I photographed that same week.  This was a fun start to my week photographing Pederson families!

Blu | 7.5 Months Vancouver baby photography

We got to see this cutie pie a few times this summer which was so fun!!  We’ve been together and done photos since but I want to rewind the summer to share these cute moments from when Blu was 7.5 months.  In the first year especially it seems like there’s huge changes in growth and development.  So having a few months at the most between visits since he was born has helped make it seem like he’s maybe not growing quite so fast.  Plus there’s plenty of photos to look back on.  Creating a nice collection of special memories.  He was pulling himself up on things and a proud little crawler.  There were lots of adorable smiles at the park and much to explore when we went to a beach park near the airport.  It was a beautiful way to enjoy the last bit of time together on the coast before I flew back home.  Being as it was the first day of summer it was very fitting to have sand between our toes and enjoy being by the ocean in the lovely summer sunshine!
