    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

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!

Danyal + Erum | Mykonos, Greece honeymoon

A Greece honeymoon sure sounds nice doesn’t it?!  That’s what this sweet, happy couple did!  It was amazing meeting them in Mykonos and doing a sunset photo shoot.  They were happy, relaxed and adorable together!  Just as you’d expect with newlyweds enjoying their honeymoon in a beautiful destination.  I was impressed how at ease they were in front of the camera.

It was fun to hear about the places they enjoyed on their Greece honeymoon and they have definitely piqued my interest to visit Crete someday.  It ranked high on their list of the islands they explored!  We had a short time together but they left a wonderful impression as we laughed along the streets of Mykonos and watched the sunset by the windmills.  I loved having the windmills as a backdrop as they’re a unique and prominent landmark on the island of Mykonos.  This shoot was delightful and I feel their happiness really shows.  I enjoyed capturing these memories for a couple that is truly in love.  Maybe someday in the future our paths will cross again!  The world definitely gets smaller as a person travels.

Tina | island of Mykonos, Greece

This is the first of several posts about my trip in the spring to Europe which included spending a few days on the island of Mykonos, Greece.  A beautiful, scenic island in the Cyclades group that I had an incredible time exploring.  I walked and walked and also rented a quad one day to see more.  The main town is really cute with white + blue buildings lining the streets.  Those iconic Greek colors.  The blues matching the Aegean Sea that surrounds this very windy island.

I was one of the first to get on the ferry in Piraeus.  It was the morning after the film photography workshop which was the reason I travelled to Greece.  A lovely young lady happened to sit next to me.  We struck up a conversation finding out that Tina was going to Mykonos temporarily for work.  She was quickly very likeable.  One of the greatest parts of world travel is meeting people and hearing their stories.  People have asked how I could go on this trip alone.  It isn’t my first choice but it’s wonderful to meet people and have conversations that don’t maybe happen the same as when I’m travelling with my husband, family or friends.

Throughout my time in Mykonos I would stop by Kayak Ice Cream where Tina was working that week.  If you go to the island of Mykonos you must try their mango sorbet and frozen yogurt!  I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this gorgeous gal and loved every minute of the shoot!!  Tina has a beautiful, confident way of carrying herself and was amazing to have in front of the camera.  There’s something wonderful when thousands of miles away from home to connect with a stranger that quickly becomes a friend!  I’m glad our paths crossed and felt so inspired photographing such a beauty in these unique surroundings!

Tristin | Weyburn Graduation

On Weyburn graduation day I met up with this wonderful family at the park in the hot sunshine.  Having worked with their family for each of the children’s graduation photos it feels like the younger brother from the previous grad sessions became the graduate rather quickly.  Time goes by so fast but I know as the kid that looks forward to these big life moments they don’t always feel like they come soon enough.  I’m appreciative to have captured each of these milestones for their family and the opportunity to reconnect each time.  It was a fun day celebrating this accomplishment and it was nice to capture the excitement and laughter of this happy graduate.  Along with his parents, sisters and grandparents that are so proud of him!  We carried on with our tradition of family members kissing Tristan on the cheek and it brought out the most laughter!!

Congratulations Tristan!  I hope you’ve had an enjoyable summer and wish you all the best in the future!
