    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

Mandi | Graduation Family Photos {Part 2}

Oh the excitement and happiness on graduation day.  And a beautiful, sunny day it was too.  I think the 2012 graduating class is a lucky bunch.  Finishing their final year of school a month early because of the renovations.  That’s an extra hooray!!

Congratulations Mandi!  You are surrounded by a supportive, loving family.  They are all so proud of their daughter, sister and granddaughter!  Have an amazing time in Europe.  What a way to celebrate your accomplishment!

Mandi | Graduation {Part 1}

The day started out overcast and chilly.  Then there was rain and even flurries.  Not what we expect at the end of May!  I didn’t know what we would do.  Mandi had her hair trial booked so it was a great opportunity to shoot her grad formals.  We took a chance and carried on as planned.  A chilly wind blew but Mandi looked amazing in her layers of vibrant blue and jewel details.  Nothing like a beautiful graduate anticipating this new chapter of her life to make a somewhat undesirable day just so fun!  As we were finishing up the rain started again.  I’m glad we took advantage of our little window of opportunity to capture these images.  Thank you!!

Loved the ballet poses!

This is definitely an occasion worthy of a cheer and dance!

Garry + Donna

Here is a wonderful couple I’m thrilled to have photographed while in Edmonton.  Growing up we always looked forward to and enjoyed their visits to our farm.  It was perfect to include a couple things that I always associate to Gary and Donna.  A 1950’s classic car.  And pretty horses.  It was an amazing evening at the acreage!

Their pup was so cute posing for photos!

Daysha - These two are still a stunning pair! love these and ya, the car is wicked!

Brittany

This girl has a big, big heart for her animals!  While I was photographing her cousin, she was in the barn getting Frankie her horse spiffed up for their photo shoot.  Brittany you just glow when you are by your animals.  And there is excitement and pride in your voice when you talk about them.  Such a huge part of your life.  It was really neat to watch the beautiful way you work with them.  Completely in your element.  Your special pets cooperated perfectly!  It was wonderful to see you again Britt!

Jenilee and Hayden

I was really glad when Jenilee sent a sweet note asking if I could photograph them again next time I was in Edmonton.  Of course!!  Exactly two years since I photographed this loving little guy and he is even more of a sweetheart.  It was a fun evening shooting at their (great)grandparents’ acreage and what a beautiful setting when it’s a special, familiar place for them.  Surrounded by horses, dogs and kitties that soak up the affection.  And plenty of space for an energetic little boy to run!
