• 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

Joanne

A wide open, dirt field.  A sweet, pretty girl.  A cute, vintage outfit.  I was in my glory.  Lovely sunshine topped it all off.  The warmth and light felt amazing.  Thanks for making it a great evening Jo, you are a sweetheart!

It’s Officially Spring!

I’m glad for a little urge inside to rebrand and create a natural, fresh look for my business that will better reflect where I am now, my vision and direction.  Something fresh, something organic.  A lot of researching and brainstorming later, I am thrilled to unveil the new look.  Especially now that it is officially springtime!  A season of renewal and growth.  It feels fantastic to launch the updated look heading into a new shooting season!  I’m excited for new printed materials and updated packaging with a natural, handmade feel.  But even more looking forward to wonderful people I will photograph and stories to tell thru photographs, captured from a natural approach.  I have kept a hint of red in my branding.  It’s a color that stands out to me.  Red represents the heart.  It’s life.  Love, beauty, passion.  These are the feelings and connections I want to capture, it brings so many other beautiful emotions with it.  From the heart of BEAUTI photography, thank you for all your love and continued support – I’m excited and inspired!

It was a beautiful first day of spring and I was glad for a chance to get outside with my camera.  I needed a break from the computer it’s not that part of my business changes is to be a landscape and wildlife photographer!  I was amused by the noisy geese on our pond entertaining our pups.

{Please bear with me as there is going to be some minor tweaking to the site yet}

Upcoming Fundraiser Events

When welcomed so wonderfully to this area since moving here in the summer, how could I not give back to the community especially for causes like these two fundraisers.

BEAUTI photography is donating a Portrait Session to each fundraiser which will be auctioned, either live or silent, during their evening.  I’m glad to donate to these fundraisers and look forward to photographing the highest bidders knowing the great benefits of these events!

~ 26th Annual Oungre Memorial Regional Park fundraiser.  Friday, March 30th.  Tickets are sold out but you can ask to be put on the waiting list if any come available.  If you have 2 tickets that you don’t need, please let me know!  This is the main fundraising event for the park and sounds like a successful event.  Being less than 10 minutes drive to this recreation centre has already proven valuable for us and we are fortunate to have a park like this nearby.

~ 1st Annual Ladies Night by the Weyburn Fire Department.  Saturday, April 14th.  Details and ticket information are on their website.  All proceeds go to the purchase of a thermal imaging camera which allows firefighters to locate persons and sources of heat in a smoke filled environment.

~ Another event I recommend picking up tickets for is “PIRATES OF THE CUREibean 2nd ANNUAL ALL ABOARD FOR A CURE LADIES NIGHT OUT!!  Tickets are now on sale!!  $15 advance or $20 at the door!  May 4th, 2012 at the Weyburn Curling Rink!!  Silent auction, Door prizes 50/50, Photobooth, shopping and much more!!  Bring all your best gals out for a great evening for a worthwhile cause!!  Tickets available at PHARMASAVE POSTAL COUNTER, CANADIAN TIRE or from any team member!  All Proceeds go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation!!”  There will be a special promotion from BEAUTI photography to watch for in the goody bags too.

A couple recent landscape photos:

A weekend away at my grandparents.  We attempted to track down a moose.  We didn’t luck out with that mission but the sunset was pretty!

Our most favorite place in Montana.  A fascinating view and the home of our wonderful American family!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2012

It was a party for the kids.  A Valentine’s brunch party to start off the weekend.  They filled our home with so much cuteness and playful noise!  Happy babies and happy kids.  There are incredible “big” people in their lives, so thoughtful and wonderful to be around.  I really enjoy to entertain, not because I feel that I am any great host.  These photos don’t show the beautiful, wonderful people that came but it really is the guests that made it a fabulous party!

Happy Love Day!  Wishing you a wonderful day filled with love, sweet treats, hearts and more love!

For the chocolate lovers: this delicious, moist chocolate cake is from Quinoa 365

Thanks to pinterest.com and MarthaStewart.com for inspiration for some of these party ideas.
