I just might be trying to get caught up on posts that I’ve been wanting to put up for ages. Ahem. My friend and I even came up with a sarcastic hashtag just for me to use…#realtimestacey. One good thing about waiting a minute to share events is that I get to re-live them and remember all the special details and fun moments. Yes! Y’all, Katie and Jonathan’s wedding was daggum glorious. Their celebration was a real testament to the incredibly loving souls that they are. When I think of this wedding day, I feel such a rush of joy. A beautiful new beginning for a beautiful couple.
What a lucky little guy. He has two of the coolest parents in the world. They are also super kind, and fun, and loving. This shoot was a dream. My pal Ashley of Flower Child Weddings is a good friend of theirs, so she set up the lovely, earthy details. Yes! So much beauty and baby snuggles. Welcome to the world, little man!!
I’ve been nominated by Red Tricycle in their 2016 Totally Awesome Awards as one of the top 3 family photographers in Atlanta. Woo hoo! I’m not big on posting “vote for me” stuff, because I clearly love marketing myself. Er, ahem. #shynotshy However, there’s only 2 days left to vote, so I’ll just put this on out there. You only have to vote once, and it seems pretty easy. Go to THIS page, and scroll down to Stacey Bode Photography. Hey-o! What do I get if I win? Some cool exposure on their site, which offers lots of info and such to parents and families. If it means I might meet more incredible families, and take pics of their cuteness. Well, that’s pretty swell. Thank-ya bunches!!
You guys. Melissa and Cody know what’s up. They showed how a sweet courthouse wedding can be fun, elegant, and romantic. Yes! After the ceremony, we strolled around beautiful Decatur to snap some post-wedding pics. This lovely couple is off to a really cool start!!
I recently got to travel with my friend Lauren from The Farmer Fund to White Oak Pastures in south Georgia. When there’s photos and adorable animals involved, I am SO there. I was beyond impressed with the practices of this organic farm. They truly care about animal welfare and environmental sustainability. It was beautiful to see all the critters roaming and grazing in open fields. I just hope all the animals forgive me for chasing and trying to pet every single one of them.
