    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

*Baby Olivia* Newborn

Their second baby.  Another little girl.  And she is a precious little girl.  She had been sleeping most of the time still even being almost 3 weeks old.  We were so hoping for the same the day of her photo session.  Olivia clearly had other plans.  That was the first day of her new schedule and more awake time.  I really appreciated her patient parents as we tried to put her to sleep.  Her big sister was adorable mimicking what I was doing, a great little helper.  And showering her baby sister with so much love.  I’m glad you’ve moved your family of 4 back to Cochrane.  It was great chance to catch up.  Congratulations on your sweetest little bundle!  I’ll be waiting for more cuddles!

*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.

To see a couple more beautiful shots of these two, click here for their preview post.

*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.

Keep an eye out for more newborn photos coming soon, I got lots of cuddles from another sweet lil girl today!
