Stacey Bode Photography » LIFE SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED

Masthead header

This time of year is pretty magical. I get to welcome so many lovely people into my little studio. Some are familiar faces. Some are new. Certain folks come in from out of town, and some bring their furry friends. We take photos for the holidays, to celebrate new little ones, to capture birthday pics, and just for fun…YES! Here are just a few of the wonderful moments that I’ve had an absolute joy shooting this season. Feeling pretty darn merry!

About a week ago, I got to do a pretty wonderful photo shoot. My pal’s swell fiance gave her a photo shoot with her awesome pup, Dillon, who was having some health issues. There were many pats, and hugs, and treats, and kisses, and laughs, and licks. I’m writing this through tears, thinking of how our pets save our lives in little ways every day. Sadly, today a hard but selfless decision was made to allow Dillon to leave this life gently. All I can do is hope for the pain of loss to eventually transition into only happy memories. Sweet Dillon, you gave love, and were clearly loved so much in return.

    ellen leahy - u so captured Dillon so wonderfully! Thank you for your great work!

This is a really wonderful family. Not only are they the absolute loveliest people, but I’ve had the privilege of photographing them for years. In fact, I’m about to hit the 10-year mark as a professional photographer, and they were one of the first families to hire me. I’ll be doing a special post of my shoots with them over the years…if I can find all those old discs and drives! They are just the coolest, and I’m very fortunate to know them.
