    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

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!

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!

Amy | Manitoba Graduation

This is just so hard to believe.  The sweet little girl that I nannied when she went off to kindergarten has grown into this beautiful, incredible lady.  Beautiful in every way!  And still as sweet as can be!!  High school graduation day has now just come and gone.  Wow!!

Her dress is absolutely stunning and perfectly matches her vibrant, fun personality.  She has a beautiful sparkle like the jewels on her dress.  Amy had lots of great ideas to incorporate into her photo session and celebrate this life accomplishment.  Growing up on a busy farm and loving to get out and help we started off in the bucket of a John Deere tractor.  It’s no surprise this farm girl is heading off to study agriculture in September.  And I know will excel in anything she chooses to do in life.  Congratulations to a very lovely girl and best wishes for many more successes in the future!!  Enjoy your weekend at the lake celebrating!

There were actually 2 graduates at their house this week, grade 9 and high school!

Pizzey family | Manitoba

The past month has really flown by with several photo shoots away from home.  One of which was a roadtrip to Manitoba to visit + photograph this wonderful family.  They are one of my all time favorite families!!  Straight out of high school my cousin asked me to come nanny for them during harvest.  There were only 4 kids then and when I went back for just a shorter time a couple years later another baby had been added to their family.  I have so many great memories of my time there!  Amazing parents and some of the most incredible, talented, brilliant kids I know!  We have talked for a bit about updating their family photos and we had a beautiful, fun evening together!!  Along with capturing their second child graduating which I will share soon too!  I really cannot believe how fast the time has gone!  But thru the years they have kept a special place in my heart!!  And always will!

We ended with photos of the kids including something that is special for them right now

5 July 2013 - 11:45 pm

Melissa - Amazing job as per usual! These will be cherished I’m sure!

5 July 2013 - 10:13 pm

Nona - Wow!! These are great!! Where did the time go to turn all these kids into young adults??? Everyone of you look wonderful in these fun settings!! Settings are so attractive, but not as attractive as the family!! Good job! These make me smile with happy memories of a busy farming family!
