    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

Weekend Away *Lake Louise*

Time.  I often feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish everything I set out to.  But I am always glad to spend time away like this, and just put all the things that keep me so busy out of mind. Celebrating our special day.  Time together, time away…special time and important time.  Time to be with the person who is most important to me. The person I love more everyday.  I am thankful we chose each other and for every hour we spend together.  2 years today since we were married.   I am very grateful for my incredible best friend…you make every day so much better.  I hope November 2nd will always feels this special.  It was our perfect day and I love to remember it.  I think of the things we promised, not the things I will receive but what I will give.  I promised you.

Thank you for another perfect memory of time spent with you.  Our time together…the hours, the days, into weeks, into months…another year filled with happiness, for the moments I spend with you.

*Stewart* Family | Calgary, Alberta

I am very glad we lucked out with such awesome weather for this session, probably the nicest day in the entire month of October!  But really…it’s not just the weather that makes the session.  It was wonderful spending time with my cousin and his family…all stylish and looking great as usual!

I’m glad I got to meet your sweet little girl too…she’s such a content baby!  Her busy, active brothers kept me on the go tho, I didn’t get a good cuddle in!  The kids did amazing…just a few sad faces and tears, but love their little smiles and giggles.  It was great to have props and cute toys to hold their interest, even if it only lasts a couple minutes at a time.  And then they find something new to explore and play.

Awesome to see your growing family, let’s get together soon! xoxo

juanita - wow, janelle, this sneak peek is AWESOME!!!! whata cute family…..love the colors……great shoot’n girl!!


These images are from a session almost a month ago.  Just after the super hot days that broke records and before the snow and record cold days in early October.  This was a gorgeous evening, the light was incredible and we met at a stunning location, just a short walk across a chilly stream to this island.  There were planned forest fires burning out in Banff Park so the sun had an amazing orange, pink glow.  I am so happy to post some images from this session…I was inspired this evening by the light, fall colors and time with an amazing person.  Thanks Lise!

*Shauna* Mini Session

It was cold so we made this a quick shoot.  My Dad has an old shed in the yard which he is planning to knock down soon.  I thought it would make for a fun photo shoot location…the roof planks falling down, interesting textures, lots of light from many angles.  Warmer temperatures would have made it more enjoyable…thanks to my lovely, adventurous sister we toughed it out for a bit!  I had to add one photo with kitty, she really wanted to be a part of the shoot.
