    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

Pederson family | Extended family

I had a very enjoyable time with this farming family on an evening filled with beautiful prairie sunshine!  Not that all their kids are involved on the farm but it’s a place this close knit family enjoys to be together.  And most of them live within just a few miles.  I loved the unique backdrop of their cornfield.  Thankfully we left with as many children as we took over there!  They had lots of fun picking and husking corn and some of them became cute little mustaches.  The kids were all adorable with parents and grandparents that know how to have fun with them and show them tons of love!

Thank you all for the incredible evening!!  It was great to meet and spend time with all of you!

Erica you were wonderful to coordinate with, thanks for all your work organizing the family!

Brian + Lana | Wedding

This couple has been so wonderful to work with since we connected a few months ago with a change in plans for their wedding location.  From a dock on the water in BC to a beautiful, blooming backyard of the bride’s parents in Weyburn.  The afternoon was filled with laughter, tears, hugs, some goofy fun and most of all so much love and happiness.  These two are wonderful, happy and easy going so sharing in their special, intimate celebration was a delight!  They made the planning process seem so effortless yet everywhere you looked the details and thought that went into creating what they did was certainly well done.  It goes to show just how thoughtful and organized this couple is!

Parts of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress were used for accent organza flower accents and wrapping her bouquet and the lace overlaid on her shawl that the jewelry is set on here.

A great brother and bridesman to toss flower petals infront of her!!

It was very unfortunate that Lana’s Mom ended up being in the hospital and couldn’t attend their wedding.  They made a great effort to include her as best they could and with the help of fabulous real-time technology, she shared in parts of the day by FaceTime.

The newlyweds making a champagne toast!

They were such a fun group to be out in the sunshine with!!  The groomsman took his job seriously.  Carrying her dress or tucking it in his pocket and holding her hair when it was blowing around in the wind!

Thank you very much Brian + Lana, I have really enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you the best as husband and wife!  Have a fantastic honeymoon, relaxing and enjoying time together on the yacht!!  It sounds amazing!

Alex + Jaylene | Saskatoon, Sk Wedding Portraits

I am especially excited about an event that took place earlier this week because it means I get to share these photos now!!  Alex + Jaylene are officially husband and wife!  I’m thrilled for them after having a wonderful time photographing their wedding portraits in Saskatoon.  It was an amazing couple hours!  Brimming with excitement and anticipation for their upcoming wedding day and adorably in love!

Jaylene you are an incredible person, a beautiful bride and I am so happy for you!!

In wanting to make this really special and emotional we did a first look at Victoria Park.  Getting ready in different houses and arriving separately so that this was the first time they saw one another dressed up.  It was magical as everything unfolded and the reaction of many embraces, smiles and kisses!!

It was fun to include these cute souvenirs from their trip to Disney World a few months ago.  Where they say that dreams come true and is the happiest place on earth.  These two have definitely found their happy place.  In being together!

Thank you to Renee for putting together the pretty bouquet for the radiant bride!!

Congratulations Alex + Jaylene!!!  It was an honor to share in this exciting, special time and capture your love + happiness!!  Hugs and much love!

Walkeden family

This was a really enjoyable summer evening!  A super couple that I am glad to have met.  They are all definitely easy and wonderful to be around!!  These girls are adorable and have really sweet little personalities.  They had us laughing many times!!  And their baby girl is so content and good natured.  We found some great spots in their grandparents’ yard.  And fully enjoyed the beautiful, warm sunlight!  Thank you for having me photograph your wonderful family!!
