• 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

Jason + Jennifer | Johnston Canyon – Banff, Alberta Engagement

As they were travelling on Christmas Eve from BC to Alberta on snowy roads, Jason stopped the truck in the Rogers Pass.  Choosing the highest point between each of their homes in the adjoining provinces as the place to ask Jenn to marry him!!  We are thrilled for our good friends to get married this summer and it has been fun to hear their wedding plans!  On the day of their engagement, my husband and I headed to Banff and all met up at Johnston Canyon to photograph them on an exciting day!  We hiked to both the Lower and Upper Falls and there were lots of kisses as we took photos along the way.  As we left Water Valley that morning we nabbed a beautiful holiday wreath off the door of Baroke Design’s shop to add to the festive, wintery look with the snowy trees and frozen waterfalls.  The love and happiness and scenery were all so beautiful!

Congratulations you lovebirds, we enjoyed our time with you on the trails and sharing in your excitement on Christmas Eve!!

Jason is a snowmobile guide and my husband who misses the days of sledding together in the mountains put a lot of effort into borrowing this vintage snowmobile, getting it running and then it wouldn’t start when we got to the canyon.  But it made for some laughs and a colorful prop!

Kohonick family | Tribune Mini Session

It was great to meet up with this beautiful, photogenic family again in the fall on a gorgeous evening.  I love that they give family portraits as Christmas gifts so I’m excited to share photos from their session now that the holidays are passed.  This family is the champion of super mini photo sessions!!!  A happy, loving, fun and energetic family and in just a short amount of time together they always impress me!  This abandoned farmyards even when I’ve used it several times now is one of my favorite prairie locations for all the variety of backdrops.  Having their wonderful Grams there was helpful and I’m glad she joined in for a couple photos too.  Keep scrolling to see just how amazing they are in front of the camera!

These Prairie Skies | December

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!

Well the last month of photographing our prairie skies for the year of 2016 has finished which means it’s time to go back through all the photos and choose favorites to put into a photo book!  I will share details once the book is designed and ready to print as a few people have shown interest in purchasing a copy.  We live in a part of the world that has fabulous, interesting, colorful and living skies so it will be fun to create a collection of beautiful prairie skies.  I love these prairie skies!   The beauty, how quickly it changes, the vibrancy and patterns.  It is fascinating!!  This was a fun project for 2016 and I’m glad I completed one of my missions for the year and know I will continue to notice + capture it as I always have.  Here’s some of my December photos to complete the series.

Stewart Reunion 2016

With the holiday season here and a time of year that most are anticipating to gather with their family, I’ll share these photos from our Stewart family reunion.  There’s a photo book with an abundance of photos that really shows all that was fit into the weekend.  This is just some highlights.  It was a memorable weekend of the summer and a very fun time!!  There’s five sisters in one family of cousins that were the incredible planners.  There is so much to think about and prepare with a group of over a hundred people and they did amazing!!  With grandparents that had eight children and were a wonderful influence to their children + grandchildren they passed on the importance of family and spending time together.  There were lots of activities and games in teams that got all ages to mingle and everyone was part of the fun.  Thanks again to the ones that organized and hosted!!  It really was a super weekend!  A great time at the “country fair”!!
