    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

*Kevin + Amy* Engagement

This engagement was a dream to photograph.  I totally adore these two!  A fabulous couple whose wedding I have the pleasure to photograph next summer.

It didn’t take long for these two to know that they wanted to spend their lives together.  I’m sure that finding Amy was the best prize Kevin has ever taken away from a rodeo!  Their love was tested with a long distance relationship until Amy could move out west.  That I feel shows the strength of their love and commitment.  And it’s wonderful to be in the presence of their love and connection.  So calm, genuine and sweet.  I was excited when Amy mentioned they wanted to include a couple horses in their engagement photos.  It was amazing to watch as they worked with the horses.  Love the sensation it added to their images.  We couldn’t have hoped for a more gorgeous, sunny fall evening. Especially considering the next day the ground was covered in snow!  So glad for our great timing, although it meant Kevin had to get off the combine for a few hours.  It really was a fabulous evening in every way.

*Charlotte + Abigail* Newborn Twins

A few weeks back I was honored to assist Michelle Wells with a newborn twins photo shoot in Okotoks.  Identical twin girls.  So tiny but already one month old.  I was visiting my friend who just had another baby in Brooks when her email came thru.  I was thrilled as that day I had mentioned Michelle’s name and of her amazing newborn work as we were taking photos of Dalys.  Then to get an email inviting me to go on her shoot with her, I knew it was an opportunity I didn’t want to pass up.  I am in awe of Michelle’s photography, she is so talented and has an incredible way of working with these tiny babies.  Moving them into poses that make them look just so perfect, content and adorable.  Thank you Michelle for sharing so much with me as you photographed Charlotte + Abigail and for giving me an opportunity to take some shots too.  I was behind the camera but all the credit for how adorable the girls look goes to Michelle for her creativity and talent.  Here’s a few of my favorites ~ to read more of the story and see Michelle’s blog post from this session please click here.

*Mike + Danielle and Parker*

You know the friends that even when it’s been months with only a phone conversation and a few emails you get together again and carry on enjoying to be around one another just as much as before.  This is her.  My gorgeous friend.  I love that we can just be ourselves.  We laugh a lot.  It’s happy and fun.  I’m thankful things fell into place that we could spend a little while together and for me to capture your family last week.  It feels like we’ve already met the man of your world from hearing about Mike from you.  I’m glad to see you two together.  To see your happiness being together.  Your love is real.  And you’ve got a handsome little man too.  Parker is sweet, so cuddly and good natured.  Give him rocks and a dump truck and he’s a very happy guy.  We need to be together more often.  I insist.  It’s fun.  Thanks so much!
