    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

Michaela | Graduation Casuals

I have no complaints when we have mild winter weather.  Warm breaks that make it possible to shoot outdoors!  Not downplaying that Michaela was brave to be out in the cold + snow either tho!  She definitely was amazing!

With the final semester of high school starting soon the next 5 months to graduation day are sure to go quick.  Thinking back to how I felt at that point.  I am so excited for all the 2013 graduates and what they have to look forward to!  Not so much the final exams but the possibilities for their futures.  It is really fun to share in and capture this wonderful time!

I have known Mic all her life.  Such a very sweet and beautiful girl.  I love her family and all the times we’ve spent with them.  It’s special to capture her young, happy spirit.  And having another shoot together to look forward, I’m delighted!

Have you really reached that final stage of high school – seems like the years fly by and the little girls we knew have grown into young ladies!! A beautiful person in a beautiful setting!!

Rae-Anne | Fine Lifestyles magazine

Rae-Anne shares her life-changing story in the latest Fine Lifestyles Estevan Weyburn magazine.  She is a courageous lady that has endured so much to get to where she is now.  I photographed her at the end of November on a chilly, snowy afternoon in Weyburn.  I am waiting on a copy for myself and looking forward to read more about Rae-Anne’s journey this past year.  A journey she said she would do again, hardships and all.

Kim - Beautiful…

Renee | Maternity

From the first time I went up into our barn and the way the light filters thru the old barn wood, it’s been a place I’ve wanted to shoot in.  Renee is a real sweetheart and was great to photograph.  Becoming a parent in a few months, it was fun to capture this stage of her pregnancy.   I enjoyed our afternoon together so much just before the holidays.

Puerto Rico

We had a really wonderful vacation in Puerto Rico.  Time away, celebrating our 5 year anniversary and exploring a new place.  With Hurricane Sandy about to hit we were very grateful to make it thru Newark, just a day before they shut down the airport .  We easily could have spent longer and there was a lot we didn’t have time to see on the main island of Puerto Rico.  It was great to go before the busyness of tourist season and the weather was amazing.  If you like heat!

There is nothing like stepping out of the airport into the hot, tropical air.  We couldn’t wait to get our toes in the sand and hear the waves crashing on the shore.  Old San Juan city is really neat.  A walled city with colorful buildings and blue cobblestone streets.

Following the advice of my cousin we spent half of our time on the stunning, quiet island of Vieques and exploring every bit of it we could.  Everyday as we meandered the very narrow paved roads we discovered something new + interesting on this small island.  We stayed in the cutest cabanita.  Ate our meals outdoors and picnic lunches on the beach.  Most often had a beach to ourselves.  Enjoyed the underwater world with a snorkel, mask and fins.  Went to the best restaurant on the island for an amazing 4 course dinner on our anniversary.  A highlight of the trip was kayaking in the bio-bay leaving a trail of light as we moved thru the darkness.  It is incredibly fascinating.

All over the island horses just freely roam

Playa Negra – Black Sand Beach


We ended our vacation with a few days on the eastern side of Puerto Rico by the rainforest

We loved spending a morning in El Yunque rainforest and our visit was complete with a tropical downpour on our hike!
