    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

Chris + Renee | Maternity

This was a really special shoot.  I photographed Renee a couple months ago but her baby bump is growing and she wanted couple maternity portraits.  We were hoping to get some outdoor time and I’m glad it worked out.  It was foggy + chilly and they were surrounded by whiteness and pretty, frosty trees.   Like the nearly blinding brightness of the sun bursting thru the clouds and fog, they radiate from the winter scenery with their happy love and anticipation.  Counting down the final few weeks to meet their baby.  We ticked off the weeks with a cute idea they had.  Still looking amazing and a perfect little belly!

Thank you both for being so wonderful and having me document this exciting time in your lives.  I cannot wait to hear your news and will be thinking of you!

A very unexpected return

We have shockingly been reunited and I’m so amazed I want to share this story.  Nearly 4 months ago on a very snowy morning, our pups left our yard.  We had only been home a few days from Puerto Rico so they headed back towards my parents where they had been staying.  On the second day, Riko turned up about 20 miles away.  It was really strange he ended up on his own but there was no sign of our other pup.  So in time we assumed the worst and adjusted to having one.  Until this past weekend.  I was told of someone having a dog show up to their farm in a snow storm and they connected it to us.  It was an exciting drive to see if this was in fact our pup.  There Breck was, or Buster as they had called him.  Curled up in a dog house with 2 other dogs.  He had been taken in and well taken care of by wonderful people!!  But now he’s home, and I can still hardly believe it!

Ashley

When photographing Ashley a couple other times she’s had her family around her.  It was wonderful to have this chance to focus just on her.  The beautiful, wonderful person she is.  We had a great time!  From the initial idea to planning and the laughs + visit as we shot.
