    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

baby Gyana | newborn

Congrats to the Odima family!  I didn’t hear my phone in the nite but waking up to a text with their news was an exciting, happy moment.  We made a detour on our way to Calgary to meet + cuddle this precious little girl.  Just 10 hours old.  I am proud Auntie of another niece!  A beautiful girl with a beautiful name.  She’s adored by her brother + sister.  They ask, say and do the sweetest things for their baby sister.  I photographed Gyana at 1 week old.  A very mellow, sleepy baby.

Her little lace up booties are the cutest!!

Perfect little lips…kisses!

So so sweet…I love it.

Nimegeers | Extended Family

A gorgeous location, meaningful and charming.  The ghost town of Brooking.  Where Sue’s dad grew up and her grandfather was the mayor at one time.  They went out a couple nites before their session to our originally planned location and just weren’t really feeling it.  They knew I would love the substitute and I really did!  We had nice cloud cover and thankfully it didn’t rain because we wouldn’t have been able to use this pretty spot having only a dirt road to get in.  Driving back into town the streets were wet so we were fortunate!  I look forward to a picnic and another photo adventure at Brooking and another great laugh with this family!!

Super special to take some couple portraits on their wedding anniversary!

Wearing their green with pride!

Five generations…great gramma and great great gramma!

Nona - These are fun!! I especially like the black and white one of Kerry & Sue, the pensive one of the 3 siblings – and of course the babies are great either by themselves or with their parents! What a great time in the old town site.

Bentley

I captured our nephew a few weeks past his first birthday while we were out visiting family in Alberta.  Bentley is one.  One busy boy.  On the move, he doesn’t stop.  I had short amounts of time, two days in a row, to photograph this cute, happy face.

Shane + Carla

There’s something about these two.  I haven’t known them very long or spent a lot of time together but it feels like we’ve been connected for ages.  Every visit is such a delight.  Four days in Vegas with Carla was a really wonderful treat.  It would be tough to find someone for a trip like that and have such similar interest and taste, as with her.  It really was incredible and we indulged.

Thank you for such a fun, relaxed, honest friendship.  You two are so happy and wonderful together.  I enjoyed my visit and especially this gorgeous evening, capturing the two of you and your genuine, abundant love in the park and by the lake.  We must get together again soon!

Daysha - Great shots Jenelle! Gorgeous couple. Love the feel of these!

Maloney family

There are only a few girls that my 3 sisters and I would claim to be like sisters to us.  The gorgeous mommy of these adorable 3 boys is one of them.  And she even fits in perfectly with our age spacing.  Growing up only a mile apart, across the field.  Always rode the school bus together.  Spent lots of time at each others farms.  Looked up to, and admired her.  Still loving any chance to be around her.  She’s been a lifelong kind, caring friend.

I’m really happy to live close again.  You two are raising 3 very sweet, handsome boys.  They made the photo session so fun…kids keep the pace moving!  Loved all their happy grins, Ben constantly singing “cheeeeeeessseeee” and the cutest expressions they have.  Thanks for coming out to our place for your photo session.  Come to visit us often!

I think these will make Grampa Don proud!
