    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

Mac and Joanne | Graduation Best Friends

There was a second part to the graduation shoot on this stunning summer evening.  I was in my glory!  Not just one gorgeous graduate but two!  These sweet gals are best friends.  Attached at the hip I’ve heard.  So it was fun to capture them together, the giggles, inside jokes and excitement of what their futures hold.  Although I imagine it will be a little sad as they head for different cities in a couple weeks.  One to study nursing and the other fashion design.  How fitting for brilliant girls that are caring and creative.  Both of them wore homemade dresses of their own design and I loved their originality as I wandered thru the school back on grad day.  With beautiful sunshine surrounding us, it was wonderful to capture their friendship and beauty on the inside and out!!

Baby Sawyer

This handsome baby boy that arrived mid-June brings our niece + nephew count up to 17!!  We first met him when he was 3 weeks old.  It was such a beautiful, sunny evening we took baby brother outside along with his siblings for some photos.  There is usually a line-up to hold the baby and he is well loved and adored by all!!  He is now part of a busy, fun family and household, this adorable little guy will never be short of entertainment!

Brian + Lana | 1 Year Anniversary

A year ago I photographed a beautiful backyard wedding in Weyburn.  It was a beautiful, sunny day with an amazing couple.  The unfortunate part about their wedding was that Lana’s Mom was not well in the hospital and unable to share in their special day.  That pulled at everyone’s heart that day.  It seemed at times promising that she would be able to be there so when the wedding day actually came and went, there was an absence felt.  Having real-time technology is wonderful but not the same as sharing in the joy and excitement in person.

This groom is wonderfully thoughtful and had the idea to come out and visit his in-laws on their first anniversary.  Making the trip out from Alberta and getting dressed into their wedding attire again to get photos with a special lady.  This couple has a heart of gold and I know their years together will be amazing!!  They bring sunshine to everyone that is around them.  They have a happiness and kindness that radiates.  It was a very special anniversary celebration!  I’m so glad I got to share in this beautiful evening and capture these memories.  Thank you Brian + Lana!!  Congratulations to both couples, a 1 year anniversary and a 53 year anniversary the previous month!

Mac | Graduation

It’s the summer nites like these that you want to never have to end!!  An amazing session like this one makes it even better!  I was in great company and enjoyed my time with this super sweet gal and her mom.  Mac is gorgeous and wonderful to work with.  The stunning sunlight complimented the color of her graduation dress against her tanned skin so beautifully!  It was a perfect evening and came together just as we had envisioned.

Mataya and Aleah

Wow how are we already at the beginning of August?!  It’s the same feeling I have seeing these sweet nieces of mine and to realize again how quickly they are growing up!!  They are happy, fun, loving and beautiful girls.  Aleah graduated from kindergarten while I was visiting so it was fun to go along to the last day of school party.  We did a little photo shoot in their pretty yard to celebrate the beginning of summer holidays.

I will be back in the Edmonton area at the end of September – if you are interested in a photo session please contact me for dates and more information!
