    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

Valentine’s Week Recipe | Gluten + Dairy Free Chocolates

We are just a couple days away from the annual celebration of a day centred around love and affection.  I shy away from commercialized holidays but when the focus of February 14th is love I support that as our world can always use more love.  Often gifts of chocolates, roses and special cards are given for Valentine’s Day and I want to share a recipe for homemade chocolates with you.  These would be well received as a Valentine’s gift and it’s even better to enjoy them all throughout the year!  You can pretty much always find a container in our fridge.  Instead of picking up boxes of chocolates from the store this year, I hope you will make a batch of these delicious gluten, dairy and refined sugar free chocolates to package pretty for your special people.  They are so good!

CHOCOLATE NUT BUTTER FUDGE CUPS

Recipe:

Prepare a muffin pan with liners (makes 2 dozen mini cups).  Put 1/2 cup coconut oil (slightly melted but not hot), 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 cup natural almond butter (or nut butter of choice), 1/4 cup honey and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla in blender.  Pulse until smooth and nicely combined.  It will be liquid-y.  Pour into liners and add your favorite toppings if you wish.  We like to use slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds and sea salt.  Place pan in fridge for 30 minutes or until fudge has hardened.  Store in the fridge – if you don’t eat them all right away!

Kohonick family session

Once again this family was exceptional to photograph!!  It’s wonderful to catch up with them each year and I enjoy their personalities all the more as I get to know them better!  Their typically fall family photos became snowy, winter ones this year during a short cold snap in November that we returned home from our vacation to.  They were game to brave the elements!  As the weather changes, it’s very helpful to dress in layers along with having blankets and cute toques that add a cozy feel.  Hopping in the vehicle for a warmup part way through was just the ticket to feel like it warmed up about 5 degrees and we finished up with adorable photos on the toboggan!  Enjoy these sweet moments of their beautiful family!!

Casey, Jennelle, Brayden and Jaxon | Preview

Oh I love these happy smiles and the beautiful people behind them!!  The fall went by in a busy blur.  So they considered a snowy, winter family photo but a week before Christmas when schedules aligned in the daylight we only had bare ground and chilly air.  We were so surprised to wake up the following morning to a bit of fresh snow – that was not in the forecast!  Although our weather is unpredictable we can always count on a wonderful visit and enjoyable time with their family!

Blu | Newborn Lifestyle Photography

This adorable baby boy is growing up quickly from when we were there and took these photos 6 weeks ago!  Our precious, newest nephew!!!  We weren’t sure how things were going to work out when we booked a few days in Vancouver on the way home from our anniversary trip to Rarotonga as you never know when a little one will actually arrive.  But it worked out perfectly as Blu was a few days old and they were getting settled in at home.

We were excited to meet him, just a tiny bundle and so precious!!  He’s surrounded by heaps of love and is a delightful addition to our family.  Having a few days with them and being the photographer auntie, there were a lot of photos taken and he was a darling baby model!  We really enjoyed our visit with their little family.  Our few days zipped by so quick.  I’m excited for more snuggles and to see this adorable nephew again in January!  We love sweet baby Blu!
