    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.

Kim and boys | Mother’s Day Weekend photo session

I’m glad Mother’s Day photos have become an annual event to capture cute, special and fun moments of mothers and their children.  It’s wonderful to have clients that are making it an annual event in their lives too and are already talking about next year’s shoot!  We had a great time in the beautiful sunshine with this fun, good looking crew!  Their smiles and laughter are contagious.  Kim is our childhood neighbor, friend and really we say she’s like a sister.  She fits perfectly age-wise too as my sisters and I are all a year apart so we gladly claim her as an older sister.  They are raising sweet, happy young boys that I hope will always enjoy to be close to their Mom.  Lucky little guys they are to have this beautiful lady loving and caring for them.  As a busy, sports-loving family, thanks for making time again for photos this year on Mother’s Day weekend.  It just so happened the arch was filled with her favorite flowers.  How perfect!!

It was a very enjoyable afternoon and evening with fantastic people!  Thanks to everyone that came to the indoor and outdoor Mother’s Day shoots this spring!!

Josie and kids | Mother’s Day Weekend photo session

Finding time to blog has been a challenge lately so it’s my goal in the next couple weeks to get caught up and I’m excited to share more!

This was a nice outdoor photo shoot on Mother’s Day weekend in the lovely spring sunshine.  It was my first time to meet this beautiful mother and her nearly teenage triplets!  Having been many years since they’ve had photos taken together it was neat to capture memories for them.  I love how Josie calls them her trio!  They seem like such great kids and were good sports to go along with my ideas as well as show appreciation to their Mom.  Also a big thank you to my aunt + uncle for letting us use the yard of their heritage house in Weyburn for these special photo sessions.

Lena and boys | Mother’s Day Weekend photo session

It seems we always take a chance with the weather when shooting outdoors.  I was very glad we had a beautiful, warm afternoon as well as spring scenery for the Mother’s Day Weekend photo sessions!  We had an amazing time at the A Mother’s Love event in April.  I wanted to offer an outdoor option as well.  Honoring these marvellous women that are the heart of a family.

For snow falling so late in the season it was nice that spring arrived in a timely fashion!  I was thrilled to find these blooming pink bushes and knew we needed to use this little park for part of their shoot.  It’s been wonderful to have this mother and her boys in front of my camera a couple times a year recently.  We were hoping to have their Dad join as well this time but unfortunately he was needed at work.  The boys are each so different and I enjoy their cute personalities.  I got the best hugs when we finished up so I know we ended on a good note!  They really are sweet boys like their mama!!

Baby Mac | Estevan newborn lifestyle photography

Oh the adorably precious moments with a newborn baby.  It was wonderful capturing this mama’s pregnancy and her anticipation for these moments.  The sweet newness of life.  The expanding of hearts that cannot be measured.  Receiving the news while I was in Greece that their baby safely arrived and was a boy was very exciting!  So a couple days after arriving home from Europe I had the pleasure of capturing this newborn lifestyle photography session by Estevan.  In their comfort of their own home exactly a month ago from today.  Having photographed their engagement and maternity, it sure makes one feel very grateful for wonderful clients that trust me to document the most special milestones in their lives with photographs.  Baby Mac was tiny, so cute and very alert.  He was most content in his parents’ arms which I love how that is the best gauge to really remember just how little they are as a newborn.  The tiny baby feet and his little hand wrapped around his Daddy’s finger.  He is so perfect!  Mac made me laugh as he would fall asleep with one eye slightly open like he was still watching was going on.  Of course after I left he settled in for a very good sleep!

Congratulations Kailey + Jaclyn on the birth of your adorable son.  You will have many fun adventures and special times ahead!!
