    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 Gyana | 3 months

She’s growing, she’s smiling, she’s a happy baby girl!  It’s adorable to hear her coo away.  She keeps conversation going!  All her happy noises + big smiles.  We’re lucky to live close to enjoy all her sweetness.  Here she is, 3 months old.  A beautiful little gem and I won’t tell how good she sleeps because too many mamas might be jealous!

Our Day

Today is one of the most special days of the year.  I know it always will be.  November 2nd.  This year being our fourth anniversary.  I am filled with love and gratitude.  Having married in the Rockies, we have always celebrated our anniversary with a weekend away to the mountains.  Well prairie living has brought that tradition to an end.  But it won’t hold us back from celebrating our love.  It’s been quite the incredible journey the past four years, I’m extremely grateful for the love, devotion and wisdom of my amazing husband.  To have you in my life, by my side…making me a better person, each day better and life better.  Thank you for being who you are!

Happy anniversary, Kent ~ I love you more than ever!

(I might not have heard right if, in part of the negotiation of standing in the beautiful fog, these photos were not supposed to go online…please forgive me!)

The images of us below were shot by our friends Laurie + Andrew of laurie ann photography…..thank you for these photos + memories!!

Mini Pumpkins

The day I finally got around to looking for a perfect pumpkin (or a few!) to carve a fun creation into, they were all sold out.  No jack-o-lantern here.  Mini pumpkins it is.  For this year.  I’m hoping we can grow pumpkins next summer in our freshly worked garden spot.  Have a fun, safe Halloween ~ and enjoy some sweet treats!

8 November 2011 - 8:34 pm

Shauna - Yup… i like these ones too 😉 The last one is sweet, and i really like your lighting or whatever with these ones… the pumpkins look picture perfect! Ta da… toodles for now!

Mike, Danielle, Parker and baby Sawyer

Hard to believe it’s already a year ago I photographed them as a family of 3.  A year ago to the day.  I’ll be glad if it’s a Thanksgiving Monday tradition we keep.  This year there’s another love in their life.  Adorable little baby Sawyer.  At just a month old.  Congrats again Mike + Danielle!  He is surrounded by kind, loving hearts and hands.  I won’t hold you to adding another into your family portraits each year but your babies sure are cute!!  Parker started off telling me just one picture.  At the end I asked how many more photos he wanted and he held up both palms with all fingers and both thumbs sticking out.  Thanks for all the laughs little buddy!
