    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

Gaudet family | Saskatoon Sk

I have so many wonderful relatives and being asked to photograph them is such an honor!!  To share in and capture their life right now along with enjoying to be together and have a visit.  We met at a beautiful park in Saskatoon along the river near their house.  We were well entertained by their little girl that has quite the imaginative, creative mind!  Trying to tell me she was a wild animal but dressed up in pretty dresses and just too sweet for that to be true!  With these wonderful people surrounding her there is lots of love, laughs and sweet moments!!

Hopefully now that you guys have moved closer it will mean many more fun visits!  Thank you for the memorable evening!!

For anyone that doesn’t know my cousin Janie Rae it is incredible for her to be walking so I think these are really special photos.  After a severe back injury causing paralysis this is absolutely amazing.  Really, she is amazing!  It’s incredible how the body can recover when there is great determination, a super positive attitude and a lot of hard work!  We are all so proud of you JR!!!
These sweet moments at the end of our session are some of my favorites!!

Adele - Steve and Janie – you are a wonderful family! What an awesome set of pictures to capture your ongoing miracle recovery JR – you have the most positive attitude I know of! Great job capturing it all Jenelle :)

Janie - Oh dear Jenelle! It is amazing how you are able to get the moments captured in between…the moments where we did not reflect discomfort or stress on our faces. LOL We are so grateful to have so many examples of our family together just as we are. Man you make us look good! I will admit that I was really feeling the effects of the workout the next 3 days, but it is all worth it to have Beauti photos “sans chaise roulante”, which is fancy talk for “without wheelchair” LOL Thank you for your patience with us and our wild animal (who, by the way, is now a magical wild animal that can grant wishes). We look forward to playing with you again!

Tiffany | Saskatoon Sk Graduation Formals

It was a short but sweet time on grad day to take some photos of this wonderful graduate.  A beautiful girl, inside + out, in a dress filled with sequins + jewels must be topped off with a giant crown!

It was delightful to share in the fun and excitement of your graduation Tiffany!!  Congratulations!

Janie Gaudet - These (well actually, all the portraits I have seen from you)are so fantastic! It is so inspiring to see pictures that easily reflect excitement,fun and also invoke so many great emotions for anyone who gets to see them.

Tiffany | Saskatoon, Sk Graduation Casuals

A couple days before her grad we spent the afternoon shooting casual grad portraits around Saskatoon.  The car filled with props, a bundle of balloons and outfit changes.  We got out of all the work to prepare for her party later in the day.  But not intentionally!  There was a mix of sun, clouds and rain but when one side of the river wasn’t offering what we needed we could drive across to the other and it was different.  We laughed because each time we went to the train bridge hoping to release her colorful bundle of balloons the sun came out in full force.  Even when it had just been raining.  But this is a great girl that takes it as it comes.  She is all around incredible!  I love her absolutely wonderful character.  It isn’t hard to know why she’s admired by everyone around her!!

We incorporated globes, maps and vintage suitcases for a world and travel theme.  Stepping out into the world.  Life is a journey.  An exciting and beautiful journey to embrace!

Here are a few fun details from Tiffany and her friend’s graduation party.  Everyone was to write a note to each of the girls, a “Key to Success”.

Our final attempt with balloons!

Melissa - Her smile is so infectious! It had me smiling the whole way through:)

Daysha - Wow Tiffany! you look great, and congratulations on making it to the next chapter in life! May your choices lead you to great places, and your attitude accept all that gets thrown your way. I love the theme for these pictures!!

Michaela | Graduation Formals

High school is forever over.  Let the summer begin!!  And new adventures that await this sweet spirited girl!

It was great to photograph Michaela again!  Looking so elegant in her stunning graduation dress.  These were taken in the surroundings of their home, the beautiful farm she’s been raised at.  She grabbed a pair of flip flops as we walked out the door but they were quickly taken off to go barefoot.  Like they say there is something about having direct contact with the earth.  To be in a peaceful, pretty setting like this in her company made for a wonderful, inspiring evening!  Michaela has such a sweet, wonderful way about her.  It was hard to put my camera down!!

Congratulations Michaela…life holds out many possibilities and I’m excited for you!

Michaela you are gorgeous!!

The next pet I want to get is a donkey, I already have a great name picked out!

I think it’s really neat that Michaela knows how and enjoys to knit, seems to pair perfectly with loving to drink tea!  But she makes it young + cool!
